Script has changed since I've made progress but it is still showing the same error.

local tower = script.Parent local mobs = workspace.Mobs

local function FindNearestTarget() local maxDistance = 50 local nearestTarget = nil

for i, target in ipairs(mobs:GetChildren()) do
    local distance = (target.HumanoidRootPart.Position - tower.Position).Magnitude
    print(target.Name, distance)
    if distance < maxDistance then
        print(target.Name, "is the nearest target found so far")
        nearestTarget = target
        maxDistance = distance
    end 
end

return nearestTarget

end

while true do local target = FindNearestTarget() if target then target.Humanoid:TakeDamage(25) end

task.wait(1)

end

does anyone know how to fix it?

EDIT

for i, target in ipairs(mobs:GetChildren()) do
    if target ~= nil then
        if target:FindFirstChildOfClass("Humanoid") then
            local distance = (target.HumanoidRootPart.Position -    tower.PrimaryPart.Position).Magnitude)

    print(target.Name, distance)
    if distance < maxDistance then
        print(target.Name, "is the nearest target found so far")
        nearestTarget = target
        maxDistance = distance
    end 
end

return nearestTarget

ok so I updated my script but is still showing the same error, do I need to do the same thing you said or is there a different way. Also it shows that Position is in the code and i'm not able to turn it into a primary part do you now why? BonkedWasTaken 0 — 5d

also for some reason when I try to put the primary part into a part it cancels it right after I clicked it onto a part do you know how to fix it or any solutions? BonkedWasTaken 0 — 5d

Strange.. try setting the primary part via script SEAN_YT213 104 — 5d

ok put where should I put the script since the changed script you send is no longer in the script BonkedWasTaken 0 — 5d

Oh no! keep the code in the script, just add the line where you set the primary part SEAN_YT213 104 — 5d

ok I added back the code but now it's saying Workspace.Stone Tower.TowerTesting:4: attempt to index nil with 'Position' (to clarify Stone Tower is my tower that is gonna be used to attack the enimes and TowerTesting is the script name. Do you know how to fix this? BonkedWasTaken 0 — 5d

tower.PrimaryPart = tower:WaitForChild(PartName) SEAN_YT213 104 — 5d

The error means that the code is trying to index something that does not exist. SEAN_YT213 104 — 5d

ok I put it on line 4, and it shows some red text underneath some code, does that mean it doesn't work? BonkedWasTaken 0 — 5d

Does the tower have a humanoid? SEAN_YT213 104 — 5d

Okay, make an invisible part inside of the tower, name it to "PrimaryPart" and change line 2 to local distance = (target.HumanoidRootPart.Position - tower.PrimaryPart.Position).Magnitude SEAN_YT213 104 — 5d

ok I did and it says Workspace.Stone Tower.TowerTesting:4: attempt to index nil with "HumanoidRootPart' and the error is on line 2 BonkedWasTaken 0 — 5d

Nah, you SEAN_YT213 104 — 5d

You'll replace the code inside of the FindNearestTarget with mine SEAN_YT213 104 — 5d

ok I updated my script so tell me if it's supposed to look like yours + some of mine. BonkedWasTaken 0 — 5d

How far have you made in the tutorial? SEAN_YT213 104 — 5d

I've made it to like the beginning of trying to find the nearest target. BonkedWasTaken 0 — 5d

also it is showing this error but now I think we are getting closer and closer to fixing it! Workspace.Stone Tower.TowerTesting:26: Expected 'end' (to close 'then' at line 14), got <eof>; did you forget to close 'then' at line 19? - Studio - TowerTesting:26 BonkedWasTaken 0 — 5d

I'm going to go to sleep now so we can figure out the problem tomorrow, ok bye! BonkedWasTaken 0 — 5d

Is my script supposed to look like this?

local tower = script.Parent local mobs = workspace.Mobs

local distance = (target.HumanoidRootPart.Position - tower.PrimaryPart.Position).Magnitude tower.PrimaryPart = tower:WaitForChild(PartName) print(distance)

local function FindNearestTarget() local maxDistance = 50 local nearestTarget = nil

for i, target in ipairs(mobs:GetChildren()) do
    if target ~= nil then
        if target:FindFirstChildOfClass("Humanoid") then
            local distance = (target.HumanoidRootPart.Position - tower.PrimaryPart.Position).Magnitude

            print(target.Name, distance)

if distance < maxDistance then print(target.Name, "is the nearest target found so far") nearestTarget = target maxDistance = distance end end

return nearestTarget
