I dug around in the files a bit, and did a little bit of googling and came to the conclusion that to do this, I may just need to make it a mod that my friend can load when we play, because he suffers from misophonia and it gets triggered pretty badly by the sound other characters make when they pull out/put away a held item, or open an inventory/menu with an item in hand.
So I am looking to mute this sound specifically, and I know its not as simple as deleting the .wav from the directory, since everything is in .asset format.
problem is, I have no experience modding Ark or with the UE. I do have quite a bit of experience with unity, so game engines are not entirely unfamiliar, but rather than self teach a new game engine, I’m asking for helping with making this mod. Any and all help is greatly appreciated!
