[ALPHA MOD] Intermodal Shipping Containers

Simple storage containers that can be moved on belts. (They are actually cars with no seats or engines.) Use them instead of cars in your box-on-a-belt factories. Even better, use them to load and unload your interplanetary spaceships in Space Exploration!

But how to belt them on and off spaceships, which must have a solid wall perimeter, you ask? With patented Gate-Belts™, of course! Simply place the gates of your loading area, spaceship, etc., then place a Gate-Belt™ on top of it. When the gate is open, containers and items will pass over it. Closed gates will stop containers, while items on the belt continue to flow through the gate.

Containers can also be moved using Vehicle Wagons, but automated loading and unloading is not currently available.

Notes

  • The containers have 1.7x1.7 collision boxes instead of the car's 1.4x2.
  • Closed gates will stop containers on belts but items will continue to flow (as if they were on underground belts).
  • Please report any bugs you find or features you think are missing.
