Suggestion - Empty utility Crates

Something I encountered with sorting out 10 odd individual boxes of 61mm rounds the other day. 

In the past pilots / logistics had options to spawn empty large crates for the purpose of loading small crates into for sling loading / airdrop / cargo loading. While the Shipping containers fulfil this role nicely for PB scale logistics I would argue to new function of item transfer means a large crate designed with vanilla item cargo rather than ace cargo would be very useful for logistics on a smaller more mobile & realistic manner. 
The other day we didn't use it in the end but I had spawned a Large US crate, emptied it into a nearby Humvee and then loaded up with 1 multiple small crates worth of mixed supplies for the active force type. To make it either slingloadable or cargo dropped in a simpler, safer, and more realistic / streamlined fashion than nested ace crates or landing and powering down to unload multiple small boxes. 

Could be neatly added to the Heli crews 'Large/Heavy Crates' sub menu that only has 2 options currently. (Western Bias aMiRiTe ANA gang)

I don't really understand what you're asking for, can you spell out exactly what kind of box you're asking for?

I'll point out the limitation that got the original removed, nested ACE cargo has maybe a quarter chance of deleting itself when loading into the vehicle. I'm not sure if that's relevant to your suggestion but that's why the first one got removed. Also, you can't ace interact on ground handlers (stuff on the floor not in a box) so you can't transfer that into a box automatically


I'm the public server manager. I might forget to remove that from this signature when I inevitably go insane.

All I mean is a crate, identical to large baf or us crates already in the menu. The sole difference being it is empty.

No ace magic needed

Piece of cake, I'll add it in
