I'm trying to add two more docking ports to the Project Alpha ISS (one more at the bottom module (possibly representing MPLM) and to the Quest module for EVA.

They work fine, and indeed I can dock vessels to it, but from the UMMU/UCGO Manager (inside ISS), I can only see 5 docks in the list.
Is there a way to change that? Could not find any clue to where I would have to tweak.

Also, even though the Vessels recognize them as docking ports, a UMMU next to it cannot ingress through it (probably caused by the same issue as above).

Would appreciate any help.

Thanks!

Can you just add them to the cfg file?

like this:

BEGIN_DOCKLIST
0 2 65  0 0 1  0 1 0    588
-9.6 -3.7 88.5  0 0 1  0 1 0    588
END_DOCKLIST

Thanks for your reply.

Indeed I added them to two files:
/config/vessels/ProjectAlpha_ISS.cfg
/config/vessels/UCGO/Stations/StationISS.cfg

But the UCGO menu inside the station (F6), although showing some changes in terms of order, still only showed 5 docks.

I do believe that you would need to rewrite the actual module file to reflect the added ummu airlocks not just physical docking ports unfortunately it would involve some tinkering with coding to create a new module file there are some examples on how to do it in the orbitersdk and the ummusdk i wish that orbiter came with the iss in the examples section of the sdk it would probably make the task much easier
