    Just a question regarding stealing wires from serpents hold blackies. A pile of 3 wires i can steal two of, then get the third one on another steal. A pile of ten wires i steal and i fail over and over. Something wrong? Stealing is 110 real.

    They might be too heavy. I believe that if the total weight of a pile is too heavy to steal, it won't even let you attempt a direct steal. Try random stealing (target the container) and see if that will get you some. Once you get the weight down you should be able to directly target steal them.

    How do you random steal from a crate? I click steal then target the crate and get the message i cant steal that.

    Also is ther any other way to get the stuff out of the box? I mean its FRUSTRATING to se literally 20 plus wires in a chest and see that the pile is growing but no way to get them. Even if not a way to get them for yourself, maybe unspawn or SOMETHING?

    Targeting a container should random steal. Maybe something's broken that I'm not aware of. It's been a while since I random stole anything.

    As far as making the crates de-spawn items, to my knowledge there's no way to do it. But I'm by no means a genius when it comes to game mechanics, there's a lot I still don't know. Even after all these years.
