Trace position of any static mesh and see what it collides with.
Melee Weapon Damage System (MWDS) a.k.a. Static Mesh Tracing Plugin lets you trace the position of any static mesh component as it moves and see what it collides with. But isn't the default in engine collision enough? No it isn't. Non root components (attached to other objects) are never sweeped (traced), this means they do not move 'continuously', but teleport between locations. For this reason they will never trigger 'on hit' (only sweeped can do this) and they will trigger 'on overlap' unreliably (when it happens that component will teleport inside another object and not past it).
This plugin remedies this. Any component can be traced and you get robust collision info on each hit.
I’ve created it for my Hack and Slash game for white arms, but it can be used for just about any static mesh.
