This is a funny one, I don’t have enough containers to load onto a container shelf to hold a certain item and don’t want to just stuff the item in some other container cause that’s horribly unorganized… So I simply dropped the loose item onto the top empty shelf and found that it floats in the air roughly the height of a container…
I’m on XBox1, 2104, My Item is a can of beans, the container shelf has 2 of 3 containers on it, and i have not yet messed with any custom island stuff. Both Land & Raft container shelves (i tested on raft after just to make sure for this post, i don’t plan to actually sail around with loose stuff like that).
Not sure what other info would be relevant.
FYI: I’m leaving the beans floating in the air. LoL. I’m sure i’ll get another container soon. I’ve only cleared 16 of my 22 islands so far.
