Add Option to Set Inventory Limit by Mass or Volume

Containers can always be filled to their maximum limit. But this is not always desired, especially for vehicles with programmed cargo logic, as excess cargo and resources can encumber a vehicle beyond acceptable limitations, or a fully-loaded ammo box might be too dangerous for a given vehicle when destroyed.

For example: A reactor may need only a small number of uranium ingots. A O2/H2 generator may only need half the ice for a given use case. A connector, sorter, or ejector may not need any storage space. A hydrogen or oxygen tank might limit a user to only place one canister at a time. A general trunk might have a limit to ensure that a user never overloads the vehicle. Or an ammo box might only need 1/4th it's total capacity to either manage its mission, or to not be crippling when destroyed.

I propose a slider bar to be added to all blocks that hold inventory, whether or not they are connected to a conveyor. This slider allows a designer to set mass or volume limits to such blocks, up to a maximum of the block's maximum storage.
