The game called "Whispers" is made by FPS Creator and in the game, the player can pick up objects ,making them move to the screen and then you can rotate them by holding R key ,how do you do that in FPI script?

KingMassen I had some time today to play with this. You do know we already have where the player can "take" and object ? using the rmb or the T" key ???
But to get something to rotate was a challenge. Remember the "entrotate" command does not work ! Soooo.... here's what you have to do.
Make your "items" a character in the .fpe file (ischaracter =1) They must have at least one bone. Use the settings I made from the picture (attached)
Play with the items/entities weight and/or friction settings to get better results Let me know how it works for you
Here's how it works for me...

Here's the MainAI script for item to pickup.... also adjust the "floatrate" setting to change height.
My games never have bugs. They just develop random features..

This inspired me ,and the character entity thing would help a lot!

I think I would also try with "freefromplr" and "linktoplr" commands as you said in the other thread ,along with "plrdisable" to hinder the player's movement

Thanks

KingMassen I had some time to look at this again, I remembered an internal variable for controlling entities.

I noticed I had a typo in the script posted above ( mousestate=1 instead of mousestate=2 )
But it still came with problems, seems the script didn't allow for the RMB click ???

I have since reworked the script and it now functions as is should. Player can either press "T" or RMB click
to pickup any dynamic item, press "R" to rotate and then place back with either "T" key or RMB.
I did notice it's best to keep entities weight around 500-1500. More than that and it falls or slides away when placing back

Is it possible to pick up objects with the arrow key?

I don't think so, as the "T" key & RMB are already hard coded for picking up items.
