Purpose

LevelConfigManager Is mainly used for editing the weapons players start with as well modify default health, shield armor and put in timed messages which might explain the map and/or who made the map but it also provides a lot of other actors that might be useful for you map such as the Keys i.e. KeyObjective, KeyPickup and KeyTrigger these are often used in solo trial maps and open trial maps. As of now the tool is used in 300+ trial maps but that's pretty much because everyone likes to get rid of the Assault Rifle :P.

Misc

For Triggers check: LevelConfigManager Triggers and for Volumes check: LevelConfigManager Volumes.

Notable actors

  • Delay Trigger : Provides a anti-trigger delay on any actor that doesn't implement an anti-trigger spam delay on its own.
  • Stand Trigger : Provides a base test on the instigator which means you can put a rule on triggers where the instigator(activator) needs to be standing on a Mover or an other kind of actor.
  • Hit Count Trigger : Provides the ability to trigger its own when an amount of hit counts have been detected within a certain time limit.
  • Delayed Trigger : (Starts at match begin)For every specified amount of time that is spent will instigate its own event for as long the match lasts(useful for looping events etc).
