Allow hydrogen thrusters to take hydrogen from hydrogen engine storage

Large grid hydrogen engine has storage capacity of 500000L. It doesn't always need that much for itself! Considering that all hydrogen thrusters have to wait in idle until all the engines are full, it would be really useful if hydrogen thrusters could take hydrogen from engine's reserves.

Engine storage also displays on HUD as hydrogen reserves, but does not function as such


Perhaps a duplicate of that topic! Please delete this, if that's the case

Would make a nice H2 storage tank since we only have the massive one now, but you just about have to turn the engine off to fill the tanks because it burns through too fast and it needs to be on to use the tank.

It also doesn't refill if its off... Its very poor in practical use.

I really dislike that the HUD fuel display includes the engine's tank. I have had to rebuild a few shuttles because i have crashed, i thought i had 18% of fuel left, when i had two full engines and an empty tank!


As a work around, i am now building all my engines on sub-grids.

Yes my large ship, with fuel in it's engine and none in it's tank, displays at 4% empty, which is -actually- empty empty and I can't fly. Very stressful maiden voyage.
