Mounting System Release Notes 1.6

Update for Pro Mounting System version 1.6 for Unreal Engine 4.  This update adds a few features present in the 2.0 version of the plugin such as Seat Changing Notifications.  This release also brings some overall improvements to customization of the mounting process. You can now take full control of attachment, detachment, and possession of the character or mount and also the ability to manually control the movement replication of the owning actor.  Overall these customizations are designed to allow for improved support of Root Motion Animations.

 

 

Improvements

  1. New Delegates you can hook into on the Rider Component for when it attaches or detaches from the mount. 
  2. New Flags allowing you to take manual control of attaching and detaching the character
