[mod request] add automation ports to rocket fuel tanks

Sure, i can see what you need it for, but it can already be done. There is a port on the launch pad, telling the automation grid, "hey i´m here". Link it to the fuel depot, and add a timer for the amount of fuel you want to be pumped. Done.

Or you could detect overflow in your pipes connecting to the engine - the overflow would happen even if you had automation from the fuel tank and you must somehow handle it either way

somebody have no launch pad (you are talking about DLC launch pad, right?). Also, imagine situation when rocket deplete asteroid usefull mass, restoration rate is 50kg/cycle, and rocket should sit for a 40 cycles more (for 2 tons)
