Modder's Resource -- Flexible Containers

(Previously "A Place For Your Stuff")

A framework for creating interactive racks and displays for most any object, including:

  • Weapons
  • Armor
  • Shields
  • Clothes
  • Potions
  • Books
  • Necklaces
  • and more...


Racks and displays built with the Flexible Container system work the same as vanilla bookshelves or weapons plaques, but can be completely customized to take any shape. A Flexible Container can:

  • Hold up to 18 items of any one item
  • Be configured to allow or block the removal of items without using the inventory
  • Be configured to use or ignore Havok effects
  • Have items arranged in any way desired

The Flexible Container framework also includes a built in custom sorting system . Link up to 10 Flexible Containers to a sorter, place all your objects in it, and they will be sorted and placed in the linked Flexible Containers. An overflow container can be used for any excess items or items for which there is no appropriate container.

Issues or Bugs

Custom items from other mods may not be compatible. The scripts use type checking and keywords to decide what should be placed in a rack or display. Custom items with different types or keywords from items in the vanilla game may not be properly placed in a racks or displays.

Some clipping may occur due to the different size and shape of some items and their placement in containers. See the User's Guide for more details.


Version 2.0 is not compatible with containers built using Version 1.0. Sorry, but the code based has changed too much for backward compatibility.

Otherwise, none that I know about.
