Ratrace, thanks for the great help! I've imported the model I want over to UDK and I've set up the code in the MyPawn class so far, but I've ran into a strange error:

"Error, Type mismatch in Call to 'SetSkeletalMesh', parameter 1"

From my reading on the wiki and beyond, the only mandatory argument for SetSkeletalMesh is just one Skeletal mesh. I've gotten no complaints from the way I've set up BirdMesh and MeshSequenceA in Defaultproperties, so I feel like this is the one place the problem's coming from.

Here's the code in full, with (mostly) only the relevant parts left in.

class BirdPawn extends UTPawn;

var() SkeletalMeshComponent BirdMesh;
var() SkeletalMeshComponent CurrMesh;

var name BirdWalkAnim;

simulated function PostBeginPlay()
{
super.PostBeginPlay();
SetMeshVisibility(true);
log("The player birdpawn has spawned!");
}

function AttachMesh()
{
CurrMesh = new(self) class'SkeletalMeshComponent';
CurrMesh.SetSkeletalMesh(BirdMesh);  //This line causes the error!
CurrMesh.SetLightEnvironment( MyLightEnvironment );

AttachComponent(CurrMesh);
}

defaultproperties
{
Begin Object Class=AnimNodeSequence Name=MeshSequenceA
End Object

Begin Object Class=DynamicLightEnvironmentComponent Name=MyLightEnvironment
bEnabled=TRUE
End Object

Begin Object= Class=SkeletalMeshComponent Name=Boobooday
SkeletalMesh=SkeletalMesh'BirdPackage.BooboodayPacked'
AnimSets(0)=AnimSet'BirdPackage.Armature'
Animations=MeshSequenceA
Materials(0)=Material'EditorMaterials.WidgetMaterial_X'
LightEnvironment=MyLightEnvironment
Scale3D=(X=0.25,Y=0.25,Z=0.5)
End Object
BirdMesh=Boobooday

BirdWalkAnim = WalkOnLand
}

I also tried setting this code up in the BirdActor class, but I encountered the same issues. I may have misunderstood something you were telling me, but I thought I'd define the mesh to be the main item and then pass that in as the Skeletal Mesh to set and attach to the pawn as a component.

I'm a little baffled myself, if I can say so. Can anyone offer any advice?
