I have noticed when I use for _, these _G and _VERSION were popping out. Can someone please explain what those are, what they are for and how to use them?

_G are global variables mostly used in module scripts you might have seen it in games/plugin Basically _G is a table that you can assign things such as keys and values _G saves scripts like cross - scripts

You can access variables from different server side scripts. If you have this in one script

_G.player = "player"


OUTPUT: Player

If my answer helped make sure to accept.

Meanwhile _Version is A global variable (not a function) that holds a string containing the current interpreter version.
