    With @DoullPepper and the rest of the map team working on revising Industrial, Port, Jungle Rock Island, and several other maps containing industrial infrastructure, I was wondering if it might be a good idea to install functional truck loading hoppers as either map assets, or as a prop.

    With delivery missions slated as part of career mode, loading trucks with bulk materials such as the smaller rocks (or even the cinderblock wall) will become more of a necessity in-game. While it's certainly possible to spawn these items directly inside of the trucks, it often requires a lot of trial and error (or messing with the world editor) to load them correctly. A loading hopper would essentially act as a funnel, allowing a larger area to spawn the load in as well as regulating the rate at which the truck is loaded (so that it doesn't all hit the suspension at once). It might also add some dynamic visual interest to the loading process - instead of the truck being loaded when the scenario spawns in, you can watch it being loaded.

    Ideally, I would hope for a dual-hopper approach, with one hopper offset lower for loading smaller pickup-based dump trucks as future-proofing for upcoming mods or official content.
