Sisyphus was punished by the ancient Greek gods to carry out a laborious and futile task for eternity. You and your factory are being tested to avoid the same fate. Sisyphean Deliveries requires your factory to launch an ever-growing tribute of items into space for eternity. Will you test your factory with mass rocket production or demand impossible item production from your Make Everything.

After the first rocket is launched the mod will generate a tribute demand, a list of item(s) that must be launched into space on one or more rockets. Each item type requires a full stack and is randomly generated (configurable). The tribute size is configurable and can grow as more tribute demands are completed. Rocket cargo size is configurable via the mod and the mod includes full circuit integration to automate the requesting, loading and launching of items and rockets if desired.
Included are several optional visually displayed target timers and a tribute quantity target that will alert on all players screens.
The mod is designed for multiplayer megabase games.
Via the configuration options you can have the mod test you and your base in different ways:
- Be a mass rocket launcher with a single random item within each, an alternative to SpaceX or infinite research. An example of this gameplay style is ColonelWill's Sisyphean Deliveries series: https://www.twitch.tv/colonelwill/videos/all
- Demanded to produce 100 random item stacks per rocket, to really give your item production system (ME - Make Everything) a complete test.
- Anywhere in between the above 2 extremes. See the complete Configuration Options below.
