    So you looking to build a crafting system or similar? its probably best to learn the inventory UMG logic it will help you build your own widgets.
    Yes I am building a crafting system. I am going through the inventory system's UMG logic, but I'm just no getting how the dragging and dropping is working.


    Particle system in UMG ? i think you mite be mistaken by video overlays effects made to match UI elements?
    I'm not sure that I was confused, but I really like those video overlay effects!!!! Is there a tutorial for that somewhere?

    Thanks!

    Have you seen my crafting system using this inventory? make sure you don't over complicate the functionality.

    When building a GUI you would design it in Photoshop and create the effects in a program like after effects, then recreate it in UMG.

    Are you talking about the user actor blue print or in one of the usable actor code blocks somewhere?

    I couldn't find it.

    Thanks,

    Hi,

    Both look in the details were you setup the items ID, if you set it in the usable actor blueprint it will apply to all if you set it to a single child it will only apply to that single actor, not if you wish it to work in networked you'll need to change the code to allow that as its limited to Single Player.

    I'm building a new HUD widget which is going to allow the player to construct something new from items in their inventory.

    The will move items from the inventory to the hotbar.

    From there they will bring up the new HUD with the B-Key which will have 2 empty containers in it.

    They will select items from the hot bar by either pressing the hot bar number or dragging an dropping the item icon from the hotbar into my new containers in the new build HUD.

    I've been going through the inventory code and looking at the drag/drop code, but I'm still unsure of the best way to do this. Does anyone have a good tutorials I can watch or code samples or forum updates I can look at to guide me?

    I've also been looking for ANY thing that shows how to integrate a particle system into a HUD. The most recent entry I can find in the forum is 2 years old. Does anyone know if you can even do this? If you can does anyone have a tutorial I can check out?

    Thanks,!

    Thanks Will.

    Since I commandeered the intelligence attribute I'll just keep using that instead of changing a bunch of stuff...

    If its a loop and its running though your inventory every tick it will create lag even if its UMG based, if you need to return a item with a follow name create a function which you can run when it needs to be returned.

    Yes it will cause lag its best to only check it when needed, what are you looking at doing if i may ask?
