βšͺPickable

Allows the Object to be picked up by the Player.

This component allows you to pick the asset and move it anywhere you want with your avatar.Take a key to the door to make it open or bring an object to a platform to open a secret passageway behind a bookcase.

PERFORMANCE TIP In multiplayer Experiences, there are two layers of logic that will not communicate with each other: singleplayer [SP] and multiplayer [MP]. For best performance, only apply [MP] behaviours and components to objects that MUST be synchronised to all players (or communicate on that layer), and maximise use of the [SP] (Client Only) layer.

USAGE TIP The [MP] version of this component will not communicate with Quests or [SP] behaviours or components. It can be used in singleplayer Experiences.

Common Uses

  • Allow the player pick up an item and carry it to another location.

  • Carry a key to a door to open it.

  • Put the right piece of the puzzle in the right location to trigger events.

  • Create a bomb that explodes when dropped and blasts in a small radius.

  • Pick up a book or map to read it.

  • Use a make shift gun and carry it around and shoot it.
