Pick up item, third person, mouse hover and click

Hi! im new to UE5 and programming, treat me like im 2y/o.

I have managed to write these noob nodes, but i have come to the conclusion that i need to hover the cursor on item AS i walk up to the item to be bale to pick it up. Anyone help?

Hey there @SirCamoranesi! Welcome to the community! There’s many ways to pull this off depending on how you want the logic to be handled.

In my case what I do is on click of the object I check if it’s close enough to the player (or in your case overlapping).

An example:

However this does mean enabling click events on your player controller, this incurs a minor performance penalty as it can now click objects instead of you jumping through the hover hoops.
