My 3rd failed attempt.

I drove it like a baby carriage and it still pitch to the right and down barreling toward that big ball below the ISS that's in my way.

Great find! That was fun. But got it on my second attempt. (And took about an hour to dock!) smile2

I was going so slow at the end I actually started going backwards a couple of times, then realised the parameters were <.2 not <.02!

Pitch, yaw and roll must all be under 0.2, correct those first.

Then translate left/right, up/down until lined up with the docking port. Get errors in line up below 0.2m.

Only then can you translate toward the ISS. You can close with ISS at over 1m per second to speed things up, just start slowing down when you get within 50m.

Easy peasy.

Mission control needs to move that big ball out of my way

Reminds me of Hellion, the docking in game was a major lesson in patience.
