Legacy:Inventory (UT)

From Unreal Wiki, The Unreal Engine Documentation Site
Jump to: navigation, search
UT :: Actor (UT) >> Inventory (Package: Engine)

Abstract parent class of all objects that can be picked up by players or other actors.

The corresponding class Inventory in UT2003 only represents objects in a player's inventory. UT2003 pickups have a seperate base class called Pickup.

UT inventory items[edit]

It's worth mentioning here that inventory items for Unreal Tournament can be tricky to locate in the class tree. This is because Unreal Tournament is built on top of the Unreal 1 engine.

Timer Events[edit]

If you need an inventory item to fire a timer after it has been created, make sure the timer is initialised after the call to Inventory.GiveTo(). Inventory.GiveTo() calls Inventory.BecomeItem() which turns the timer off.
