For a couple years now, the FE gun kit has been a go-to choice for most developers that like making FPS games.
It’s a really flexible gun system that you can easily modify and add your own aspects to.
There are two versions; a viewmodel version and a roblox character version.
Here are some unmodified examples. They may look a little bland, but as I said, you can modify it to your likings.
The FE gun kit is surprisingly simple to install.
- Insert the viewmodel or normal version
- Open the model in workspace
- Open contents, and drag all the contents of the folders to their respective services
- Modify and test it!
There are a couple of rules for animating the FE gun kit.
- Idle priority must be Movement for equip animations to work
- Fire, reload, and hold must be animation priority Action.
- The idle must be looped
When you have animated, publish them all and open your gun, double-click setting module, and change all the animationIDs to your animation’s ID.
Remember, users that have BTRoblox can download your animation, do NOT set your inventory to public!
The UI is very sensitive to changes and you can easily break it. So, I’ll show you how to properly do it.
I will just be showing how to make it look more modern. There isn’t really a need for further modification, so I will make a stepped tutorial:
Grab GunGUI from your gun’s GunScript_Local
Drag it to StarterGui
Open it, and find Crosshair
Open crosshair, open main, and change Center’s transparency to 1
Set HL, HR, VD, and VU’s borderwidth to 0
This is the result! A clean looking crosshair.
The ammo display looks like its from 2001, so let’s change that.
You can change the transparency of anything, but not the visibility as that might break things.
For example, I will make the transparency 1 on the Frame in GunGUI.
That already looks a lot better. Now the font:
Criminality anyone? Now, that bar in the middle looks ugly, we can change it by making the Frame shown in the image background transparency 1, and use reclass to make it a textlabel.
Now copy all the properties over from your other texts.
That is basically all you need to know to edit the UI!
That concludes my tutorial. Please let me, or the owner of the gun kit know if you have any issues.
