Description

So, this is Truss section of the GSS. You disassemble it in 3 pieces and can pack neatly onto the rocket that capable to ascend ~50T into LKO via tripod adapter - at least, I deployed it in such way.
Then you assemble it while in orbit and press 7, so the PVA’s deployed. To dock the habitat part I assume next checklist:
Position the Truss assembly in the way so Port side looks Normal, Starboard side looks AntiNormal, and Huge docking port looks down at Kerbal
Then fly the FWD section little bit down under the Truss assembly and dock when the ports align.

Almost every part has its own gyro, fuel, comm, MechJeb and equipped with fully functional RCS, so assembling on LKO is a piece of cake even in full manual mode. Use MechJeb docking autopilot to make it easier - the auto assembly is tested in various package configurations. Nothing special, usual stuff.
Good luck, Like, Comment, Share!!!
