Sounds like an interesting idea - I must try this oxp out.
I must confess that I struggled with docking traffic queues at stations for a long time - usually I would hit "c" for docking computer and use the opportunity to have a break and put the kettle on.
I'm rather embarrassed to admit that I only realised in more recent times that once the "S" (space station hud icon) was active that you could simply hit "C" (shift & c) to instantly dock.
Evidently when I was learning to play oolite (or more to the point relying on old knowledge gained when playing elite on an electron in the 1980's) I yet again failed to read info on wiki pages (sighs) or I may have spotted the following:
Holding shift and pressing c ("C") activates a hypnotic sleep inducer (MemmSomn Pilot Interaction) at the same time as the docking computers - this allows the pilot to sleep while the ship docks and awake refreshed when docking procedures are complete. This allows Commanders to devote more concentration on important commercial decisions once docked. Note, this option is not available with certain large vessels and non-standard stations.
Instead my brain naively said to itself "you know it's c to dock, why bother wasting time reading what you already know?"
In fairness this may only reduce playing time waiting for docking and may penalise mission / cargo contracts which are time sensitive, all I know is that it saves me potentially waiting a long time (when docking queues get out of control).
Just thought I'd mention this in case it is use to anyone else
Or if there is anyone else as daft as me (now there's a scary thought)
