Can someone help me with this treeing script?

Asked by 7 years ago

This kind of tree isn't the one with leaves and a stem, but a hierarchy of parent and child instances. I used a for loop to find what was in my designated point...

for _, v in pairs(game.Workspace:GetChildren()) do
    if v:IsA("Part") then
        print("Part found")
    end
end

At that point I realized "Hey, I could make something that searches models!". My goal of that was to do the above script, but if it found a model start the process again but have that model as the search point.

local a = game.Workspace
local b

function Tree(location)
    loc = location:GetChildren()
    for _, v in pairs(loc) do
    if v:IsA("Part") then
        print("Part found")
    elseif v:IsA("Model")
        b = v
        Tree(b)
    end
end

for _, v in pairs(a:GetChildren()) do
    if v:IsA("Part") then
        print("Part found")
    elseif v:IsA("Model")
        b = v
        Tree(b)
    end
end

What happens there is the process stops when it hits the model rather than seeing what's inside.

First of all there is some code that is not serving any purpose here...You were missing a thenon your elseifand you were missing an end.

function Tree(location)
    loc = location:GetChildren()
    for _, v in pairs(loc) do
        if v:IsA("Part") then
            print("Part found")
        elseif v:IsA("Model") then --Missing  then
            Tree(v)
        end
    end --Missing end.
end

Tree(Workspace)

I did forget that, didn't I? Wow, never realized that. I managed to burn myself out on this and couldn't see this simple answer. Thanks, notsopwnedg. XanthicDragon 38 — 7y
