So I’ve never modded anything before, but after 6 months of waiting for the ARK dev team to add a claymore (two handed sword) into the game, I decided I would give it a go myself. I am attempting to use the Unreal Engine Modding system given by the Epic Games Launcher. My problems are really twofold:
- Is it possible to add a new animation for the human character into the game, so that he could swing both arms and hold the sword in both hands, rather than the current one-handed sword style? If so, how would I start going about that?
- Is it possible to design a new sword skin for my Claymore, such that it would look different from the swords currently in the game? I am fairly certain this can be done, as I have seen sword mods, but I don’t know how I would go about doing that. Would I require a separate system to design the sword in? Pleas help.
