Smart Ping System is an easy to integrate world tagging system that's ideal for co-operative games needing player issued indicators to quickly tag targets or important items. It features a dynamic selection menu that adjusts to the number of icons and can also change depending on what the player is looking at — auto-tagging enemies or marking loot boxes or drops for teammates.

 

All icons have a number of customization options; texture, scale, tint, anchor, animations, sounds and peripheral lock (screen edge icons) which are easily defined using data tables and called at runtime using a path. Pings can also be customized to allow them to only appear to specific clients using a flexible conditional logic system. Using this you can set pings to only appear to teammates, in a location, with an item or any combination.

 

This system consists of just a replicated actor component that's added to the player's pawn; plus an optional blueprint interface for dynamic actor menus. It's intended to be as lightweight as possible and is inspired by ping systems from popular games like Rainbow Six: Siege or Apex: Legends.
