So I am basically a N00B when it comes to this. After two weeks I have finally got the kit running smoothly after following some advice I found here and now I am trying to learn what to do. Now I have started watching tutorials which are good but I have so many gaps in my knowledge I can’t relate them to what I want to do successfully. Could you help me by looking at my list below and telling me if I should be making copies of the things I am looking at or child references please? I think its a copy cos if I make a child of WeapSickle for instance it references the original which then links to other things I want to edit which would then change them for the original as well (I think…)
My aim is to design a tool (lets say sickle) that collects only Narcoberries. So this is what I think I need to do:
- Create a mymod folder
- Find the WeapSickle, copy it to the mymod folder.
- Rename the copy narcosickle
- Looking at the reference viewer I see the original WeapSickle is referenced by PrimalItem_WeaponSickle so I grab that and make a copy of it again and rename it PrimalItem_WeaponSickle_mymod.
5 I then point PrimalItem_WeaponSickle_mymod at narcosickle instead of WeapSickle.
- I then look to find where I can try to limit what narcosickle can gather and trace it through:
DmgType_Melee_SickleHarvest > SeedHarvestComponent
Now here is where without understanding what I am doing I am probably repeating the same mistakes. If, as I assume, I need to make copies of the things I want to alter then I need to copy more and more until I get down to the types of berry I want to harvest. As mentioned above I would like some advice if at all possible please.
Thanks in advance.
N.B. I may make no sense at all so please try to read through the gibberish!
