yesterday i have bought the Military Weapons pack for my FPS Game. I have added them to my game and can copy/past them to the ground where they are lying around. But what do i have to do exactly to use them? I am talking about picking them up and wearing one of them on respawn. I took a look at some YT-Videos and some Forum postings, but nothing helped.
Ok, here we go (static mesh way -> works nearly the same as the one with skeletal meshes):
use the fps template + a modified version with your own arms or without the blue weapon
Now we have to create some sockets. Open the skeletal mesh (arms) and add a “weapon” socket to the hands or any other place where the weapon should be attached. After that open the static mesh and also create a socket called muzzle
create an actor bp and add the projectile properties:
Ok, those are the basics steps. Now when you walk over the weapon it will get attached to the character + it will activate the bool so that we can shoot. Unfortunately I had not much time -> that’s why I havent added a description to the images, but when you have any questions, post them into this thread.
Now after you have done this steps we can go over to some other stuff like muzzleflash, sound, damage,… but that’s another topic
Hello and thank you for your explanation and pictures.
For step 1 and part 1 of step 2 i was watching this YT Tutorial ( ?v=fyC57urfKtE ), but got into some trouble with collision. How/Where do i disable collision?
Sadly i am not able to follow your steps from this point of step 2 on: “…After that open the static mesh and also create a socket called muzzle”. How exactly do i have to do that?!
