I have a Nu-class and recently bought a whole bunch of small backpacks for resale. I had them loaded on my ship individually, but when it came to unloading them all, I decided to repack them into crates. However, my strength is not enough to pick up a cargo container with 8 small backpacks inside. The take item button is useful for just such an occurrence, but 7 crates full of small backpacks fill the entire volume of a Nu-class, so I can't reduce the number of packs inside the crates so that I can carry them out.
Hal, you don't need to dock into another entity, just be in the same location as another entity you can enter.
Uli, you can use the Move into room option with the drop down menu to get the items to the entrance room - your strength won't matter. Then from there load the items into another entity. If you don't actually own another one, land on a planet and unload from there onto the ground. If you are afraid of other players, land in a terrain square (not a city) as its highly unlikely there will be a player there. Plus you can always use your scanners to see if any other entites/players are near anyway. Then just unload into the terrain, unpack as you need, then use the load into entity option again to shuffle them back in - depending on the weight you many need to unload some more crates so there is space to overfill your ship.
Not that you really should be overfilling things and getting around code that way...

Now that you mention it...
I have been a store-person and dealt with boxes most of my life.
Manufactured stuff that you buy in RL almost always packs into a smaller box/carton/crate.
Like at Christmas time when that toy is missing the 'whatsa ma call it' and you try to pack it back into the box it came in, to return/complain about it, it never quite fits again and thats with a part missing!!.
When i started SWC a year ago i thought it was great that the game admins actually thought about it and programmed that into the game. yeaaaa
Ohhh No, after a bug fix, some of that stuff was ''FIXED'' eek lol
Have you ppl never heard of IKEA, we have them in Australia, its amazing what they can fit into a box. but thats an extreme, that illustrates my point.
Just a point of view. This would have saved a lot of time coding. hehe
Sometimes (haven't tried it for a while) you can get away with packing a crate or 2 into a Large backpack, if you managed to have one out of a crate and best to have it equipped. Also if you have any passengers (NPCs or droids for example) get them off first, sort out your equipment then you can reload the passengers and actually go over the weight/volume limit, ut you won't be able to move anything once you start travelling.
