The Expando box.png Expando Box is a item storage box, meaning you can store large amounts of a item inside one of these.

Kep in mind that the box will expand gradually, consuming more room in your Spaceship when large amounts of the item is stored inside the box. So keep this in mind when creating a storage room. Although it grows, it takes up less space than all of the items it contains when dropped.

Expando box.png Expando Boxes are also affected by gravity, meaning they are entities, just like dropped items. They can be moved by collisions with other items, tools or players, or moved by Pusher.png Pushers for a example.

To be able to remove or Wrench.png Wrench a Expando box.png Expando Box, you must empty it first.

The hitbox of an Expando Box is not a perfect square (or rectangle), because at the very edges, there is a small space that you can click through.
