Docking Block for connecting two Techs

I have an idea for a block that can attach two techs together. Possibly a block that acts as a docking port and you have to have one on each tech or one that attaches to whatever you press it against. There is also the problem of what happens when other blocks from each tech come together as they connect. What I think could fix this is if there was a small amount of room necessary for the connection and the docking block could be 1.5 blocks long instead of the normal size. And if there are blocks in the way then the connection simply won't work.

I want this too. Sort of like KSP. Currently you can attach two techs but you have to use brackets to create a hook to attach techs. Also sometimes it's quite glitchy. And yeah, I think docking blocks would be great.

Yes
Having two bodies on one tech in the Unity engine doesn't end well.

Basically, it's a path of hard coding and stuff, eventually leading to just another brick wall.
