I don't understand how this would work. You have hot spots in all kinds of configurations.
You can have templates for "extraction hubs" (storage surrounded by extractors) and "main base hubs" (spaceport surrounded by factories) with pre-set routing and schematics (for individual planet types and manufacture options), afterwards all you'd have to do is plop down the main base anywhere, then either put down some "extraction hubs" in the general area of hotspots or manually place extractors, then just place one link from storage to spaceport and add routes from storage to factories.
A lot of clicks saved that way.
And if they're public, either game-built-in or corp-wide templates, that makes it easier for newer people that can see it to understand how to do it.
P.S. Yeah, and there's the "processing only" colonies without any extractors, like the person above mentioned.
