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.
This is my 20 feet standard container with open Door - perfect for shipping yard, warehouses, docks and factory yards.

Polys: 1474
Verts: 1704
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
- 20 feet Standard Container

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


Update (2006-03-20): smaller files with DXT3-textures instead of RAW24bit-textures

Got all of them. Like to have a lot of untidy elements. The files just look a little bit big, any special reason?

The files are so big, because i used 24bit Textures. The reason was: The containers are very big and i was thinking if i would use a DXT-texture, the result would not be so good.

I checked it with a DXT3-texture and the result is good. I will update the packages with a smaller file (and DXT3-textures).

p.s, I tested, and use your wooden crates in OFB and they work awesome. But again, they are only §1 so, selling them, at even 10 is excessive, and people dont want to buy them

Hey dude, you can usually click a little custom content button in the pricing menu, and select a custom price, so you can put it at $15,000 or whatever.

By the way, are they stackable? and if so, how many?

Yeah... alright, you can PM me to request a house I suppose... Might take a while though as forewarning...

They are not stackable, but you can place a column and a floor tile on the top of the column - and now you can place a second (or third, or fourth, ...) container on the floor tile.

Oh cool! I couldn't tell the scale of the closed one by your pics, but this one with the car just fixed that for me. Thanks

Using the base game only, with no EPs I can get the pallets and boxes to show up in my game, but not the containers or open door containers. Are there EP meshes involved?

Thank you so much! I've been needing these to finally complete my Container Ship. I may post it on the MTS2. Maybe pretty soon.
