"Character is not a valid member of Model "Workspace.Player" "; what'd I do wrong?

Asked by 4 days ago

I am trying to change a players model - I did some research into the matter and butchered a few different scripts together to match what I was trying to do. The main script works, I can control the new model as intended; the problem lies within the camera. It stays where the previous players model lies - as expected. The specific error occurs when I attempt to swap the cameras subject.

This is the main script, located in ServerScriptService

local RS = game:GetService("ReplicatedStorage")
local GMORPH = RS.Morphs:WaitForChild("GRUNT_MODEL")
local gruntMorphEvent = RS.Events:WaitForChild("GruntMorphEvent")
local newMorphCamEvent = RS.Events:WaitForChild("NewMorphCamEvent")

local function onGruntMorphFired(Player)
    local char = Player.Character
    local morph

    morph = GMORPH:Clone()
    morph.Name = Player.Character.Name
    morph.Parent = workspace
    Player.Character = morph
    newMorphCamEvent:FireClient(Player, morph)


and this is the camera script - located in StarterGui. This script has the error

local RS = game:GetService("ReplicatedStorage")
local newMorphCamEvent = RS.Events:WaitForChild("NewMorphCamEvent")

newMorphCamEvent.OnClientEvent:Connect(function(Player, morph)

-- error is here
    local char = Player.Character or Player.CharacterAdded:Wait()
    local hum = char.Humanoid

    local humanoid = morph:WaitForChild("Humanoid")
    workspace.CurrentCamera.CameraSubject = morph.Head
    workspace.CurrentCamera.CameraType = Enum.CameraType.Follow
You are trying to get the character from the character. Try using game.Players.Player.Character instead, or use game.Workspace.Player as that is already the character. Jetdevv 0 — 3d
