Can confirm, used 2 different applications which can open 3ds and Blender seems to struggle with this particular asset.

@Alex P (eneen) : Sorry for the longstanding inactivity here. However, to have another look at this we would need the particular 3ds file to reproduce the issue.
That link in the task description is dead unfortunately...

Marking as incomplete for now.

@Alex P (eneen): thx, but I cant find a 1_2.3DS in that zip.

I guess we are talking about BL.1.L.3DS?

This is one screenshot is of, but other files seem to have same issue.

OK, I think that one file is enough to reproduce

This file contains chunks that place objects which we currently don't support, which could be the cause of the problem - see a dump:

the diff to create the dump .

Since there are keyframes, its possible some of the object placement uses animation keyframes which are currently ignored.

Suspect this is a TODO and not a bug.
