Crate Fabricator is a base building product.


Crate Fabricator is a base building product which is essentially the buildable version of the Damaged Container.

Once placed, they take one hour in real time to fabricate a random container item. Once the item is fabricated, the container's glow lines turn from red to green, and any player will be able to claim the item and restart the fabrication process.

Moving a moderate distance away, or traveling to another location will reset the container as ready to claim again.
