This mod adds a simple entity, the "Rocket Auto Starter".
Placed nearby a Rocket Silo this entity will automatically start any rockets from nearby Silos (direct neighbor) when the following condition is met:
- There is at least 1 item in the cargo of the rocket (Doesn't have to be a satellite)

The Auto Starter has to be adjacent to the silo! Don't leave an empty tile in between, because then it's not working.

The mod will periodically post the number of launched Rockets of the last 10 minutes. This is configurable in the config.lua:
messageForSentRocketsEveryMinutes = 10
--> Configure how often the chat statistics should be posted (in minutes)
messageForSentRockets = true
--> Disable the chat statistics entirely if you like
