Off World Shipping Co

by Nebri
This mod randomly generates a shipping order that must be blasted off into space using the rocket silo. Each time you complete the shipping order, a new one will be generated with a slightly higher demand. The idea was to give your mega base something infinite to work towards. Please report any issues / bugs on the github issue tracker. I will do my absolute best to resolve any concerns.

This mod randomly generates a shipping order that must be blasted off into space using the rocket silo.

Each time you complete an order, it will push the order level higher. The mod will generate an item list based on a scale factor upon the level (20% per level), within a defined range. There is no limit to the level, this will continuously generate orders indefinitely.

Please report any issues / bugs on the GitHub issue tracker. I will do my absolute best to resolve any concerns when I can.

Thanks for trying out the mod! Feedback is always welcomed.

Planned Features

- Find a way to output the shipping order demands to circuit network
