Merry Christmas to All!

This year I couldn't afford to buy any of you gifts for Christmas. So instead I have gotten everyone of you hundreds of empty boxes. Cause if I know one thing about all you small children and lol cats out there on the interwebs, it is that you love playing with the boxes that presents come in more than the actual gifts themselves. Thus I cut out the useless present part of the equation to accelerate the train to fun town by giving you the empty crates right away. Sit back and enjoy the multitudes of colorful boxes are in store for you when you play Too Many Crates! Have a very happy holidays!

Woo! Broke all 1000!
This was an awesome mod from start to finish. The level design was pro, the puzzles were frusterating but fun, and the concept is just hilarious! The only bug I found was the conveyer belt bug, which was fixed in the newest version, so... yeah. Absolutely awesome.

I made a list of the crates for t3h n00bies

Red crate -
This crate is full of explosives and will blow up in your face if you try to whack it with a crowbar. Keep your distance.

Blue crate -
This crate is extra strong and can only be broken via explosives.

Golden crate -
This crate is special.

Yellow crate -

Not to be mistaken for the goldren crates, these crates don't like being whacked-they'll whack you if you aren't careful!

Normal crate -

They don't jump, claw, bite or explode. They aren't superstrong or magic. They don't even move. They are....

This may sound too noob, but I'm stuck right at the start :<
I get in the the first window to the left using the single crate that is outside the factory, then I start throwing the boxes out and I build a crate-staircase leading to the roof, where I can see more boxes, but it looks like I cannot jump up there, seems like I'm hitting the skybox when I jump. What do I have to do here?

Open the front door? you can use the "use" key default "e" to open doors.

You actually got to the roof from there? Haha.

Anyway, that's not what you had to do. At the beginning of the game, you can open the blue door on the right with "e". Don't worry about the crates on the roof.

You know what would be cool? A multiplayer mode where 2 to 4 teams try to break as many crates as they can on a map. The crates all spawn randomize in the area and so do certain weapons in areas. Everybody starts out with a crowbar. You also can't hurt the other team :3 Of course special crates should appear too..

Just a thought. I have an overactive imagination.
