Easy Way to Attach Muzzle Flash to Player - FPS?

Easy Way to Attach Muzzle Flash to Player - FPS?

Postby Shando » 29 Mar 2013, 05:43

Hi All,

Is there an easy way to attach a Muzzle Flash (either a Sprite or using the Particles system) to the end of the barrel in the Player - FPS Preset?

Thanks

Wouldn't muzzle flashes bullets spent cases etc come from the weapon, not the character.

Hi @cheeseontoast,The new fps player system will manage all of the settings a character will require,the weapons editor, the ammo etc this is then combined with the other actions or scripts to make the final player/npc character. This way certain actions can be mixed or reused in other player designs. eg a third person car being the player complete with weapons!

We have also planned to create a weapons editor with which to setup weapon characteristics and stats, animations, offsets,effects such as tracers and flashes etc. ;)
