I'm trying to replace the default character with a brick that you can move around and control. Here's the hierarchy:
Workspace Brick (Model) Health (Script) Humanoid (Humanoid) Head (Part) Torso (Part) Mesh (BlockMesh)
Torso is a Part with the size of
4, 2, 2. Head is a Part with the size of
1, 2, 2, attached to Torso with surface welds. Neither part is anchored. I am currently just setting the character through this simple line of code in the command bar.
game.Players.Player.Character = workspace.Brick
Although this does correctly set the character, once my character is the brick I cannot move or jump. I did remove the Animation and Sound scripts normally found in characters because Animation does things that affect the arms and legs, which do not exist, and I have no need for sounds.
Any help is appreciated.
This should work as you've stated (I just tested to be sure)
While they aren't anchored, is it possible that the parts are snapped to other things, like the BasePlate? This sometimes happens it seems when they are created using
Instance.new and the BasePlate is at the origin (though I'm not sure why)
