This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This is another object for the warehouse-theme: a 20 feet standard container.
It looks perfect on the area of each factory.

Polys: 926
Verts: 1144
Price: 100 §

You can find this object under decorative / sculpture (misc.).

The .rar-file contain the Mesh with the texture of "Hapag-Lloyd" and
three recolors with the textures of "MAERSK SEALAND", "P&O" and "DHL".

You can find more items for stores and warehouses here:
- Cadboard Boxes
- Wooden Palette
- Wooden Palette leaned to the wall

I hope you like it. Have fun! Please don't forget the THANKS button !!!

I am loving the objects you've created. They make urban spaces look so much more real! How about a time clock so the dockworkers can punch in?!

These are awesome! Great job!! These will be great for a shipping yard, warehouses, docks, etc. I love them!

This makes me want to build a "laker boat" now.... For those who don't know what that is, they're ships used to bring things up through the St. Lawrence to the Great Lakes region, in North America. Where I'm situated, I can very often see them out of my windows here (when there's no ice covering the river that is).

Perfect! Thanks especially for the "Hapag Lloyd" container so my Sims are able to ship their goods with the "world best" ocean container line!

Great stuff! Any way the textures could be turned into wallpapers, so Sims could live in converted containers?

I placed some of these on my "car sales" lot and I noticed that my sims can walk through the containers... Is that normal? I also noticed that I can place them as if I used "moveObjects on", for example place one partial in another container... (I haven't installed the OFB-patch yet)

BTW they look great!

That's not good, but normal. The container based on a sculpture and use one tile (1x1) on the grid.

Sorry !

I could make a unvisible object, which you could place on all unused tiles on the container area. Other suggestions ?
