Patch of: https://mods.factorio.com/mod/SupplyDrop
Credit to Gangsir.
This mod adds in supply drop crates, similar to the mechanic in games like Rimworld, where occasionally a chest or two will appear containing some various resources that aid the player slightly. These resources do not substitute for setting up automation, and it'll never give you anything you don't already have access to, but can make the player's life easier and serve as a little bonus.
Upon a crate dropping, it will hit the ground with great force, and be slightly burning from atmospheric entry, so it will be very noticeable. Despite being on fire, the fire is small enough to be harmless.
See the FAQ tab for more detailed information about the mod.
Please note that the mod is balanced primarily towards vanilla factorio, and may not play well balance-wise with major game-changing modpacks.
