UT2003 :: Actor >> xPickUpBase (Package: Engine)

XPickupBase is the class used for the metal plate below the spawnpoint of weapons, health, powerups and other pickups.
Usually you don't use this class directly. Instead its subclasses such as xWeaponBase are used in the maps.

Tip: If you set Actor/Advanced → bHidden to true, the base and the "swirly things" disappear, and weapons just float there like the ones in UT.

Warning: Adding this class usually crashes the UnrealEd that comes with the unpatched UT2003 v2107, i.e. UT2003 out of the box. Install the latest patch for UT2003 to prevent this.

Known Subclasses

Subclasses without link are exactly the same as xPickupBase except with changes to the default properties to give them different meshes and set their PowerUp variable to the appropriate class. Most likely they were added to make it easier on mappers.
