Hello I have my inventory system created but was wondering the best way to setup inventory items that are to be able to be dropped and picked up in an open world. I started out just using a static mesh but then I ended up adding a skeletal mesh component to my main BP_ItemMaster so My character could hold the actual weapon BP’s. This is where my question comes in. What’s the best way? I would like to only have a skeletal mesh component in my BP_ItemMaster but when I remove the static mesh component Smooth Sync no longer works lol. So my only work around is to have this static mesh and to turn visibility off on skeletal mesh. How do the big boys set this up? It sucks getting really far on a project and then having to redesign it lol but it’s worth it if it’s done right.
I plan on having attachments on my weapons so what will be the best path moving forward? Just use skeletal mesh or both? or does it really matter?
