    Putting players into tribes on spawn.

    Hey guys,
    I was wondering if there is a way of forcing players into Tribes on spawn/connecting, but I don't really know how. I found a few helpful nodes, but have problems understanding how the "MakeTribeData" node should work. Most of the outputs should be inputs I think. I really don't know how that node should work otherwise... Besides my setup is there another way of doing it? I was starting on a TC but that requires factions or sides and not so much the player choice of joining a tribe he want's to be in. Would be a shame if I have to drop the whole idea.

    Here is an image that shows the outputs that should be inputs of the node I was talking about.


    If there is no way of doing this right now, pls handle this as an DevKit feature request. If there is such thing.

          Yay, little breakthrough!
          I can add people to a Tribe now. But first a player has to create a Tribe. I still don't know how to do it. I also still don't think it is possible. The MakeTribeData node is obviously broken. Someone added outputs instead of inputs. Anyway, I dont think I will get an official answer before Monday so I have to work with what I have.

              Haven't checked since the update came out. Before it was not possible to create a tribe withing blueprints. Putting people in a tribe is something you can do in the gamestate. But the tribe needs to exist already. Found a nice way to handle it in my TC.

                  First you should merge all the SOTF files into your Ark files. You can find a tutorial on that somewhere on this forum. From there on you can start modifiying the SOTF gamestate, but I would recommend creating a child class blueprint of the "custom game state" (I think that is the name) and from there on you are free to go.

                  BTW: even without the SOTF files there should be more than one gamestate if you search for it in the content browser. Just search for "state".
