Script is inside ParticleEmitter
script.Parent.Color = script.Parent.Parent.Parent.Parent.Name -- Model is named 'Teal'
bad argument #3 to 'Color' (ColorSequence expected, got string)
I am trying to get the ParticleEmitters color to be the same as a models name, which the models name is
Teal so pretty much I want the Color to be a BrickColor
The problem I believe is that since a ParticleEmitter has a start and end property to the color it gets confused. I just want both the start and end properties to be set to the
script.Parent.Parent.Parent.Parent.Name, which is
Particle emmiters use ColorSequence. So far I've been having a lot of trouble with this. Basically a ColorSequence is a combination of 2 color3 values. To access the colour, you'd have to do
particleEmmiter.Color.End Start and End are the color 3 values that make up the ColorSequence
To get a emmiter to be the same colour as the part I'd do
local bc = BrickColor.new(script.Parent.Parent.Parent.Parent.Name) local color = bc.Color script.Parent.Color = ColorSequence.new(color,color)
That technically should work but I had a bit of trouble when I tried.
script.Parent.Color = BrickColor.new(script.Parent.Parent.Parent.Parent.Name) --BrickColor variable
If this doesn't work, you have to use a Color3. I'm not very familiar with ParticleEmitters yet.
ParticleEmitter came with a couple new things such as NumberSequences and ColorSequences.
To create a new ColorSequence, use
ColorSequence.new(). It takes two arguments, which are Color3 values, the first being the StartColor, the second being the EndColor. If you choose to only use 1 argument, it will be both the start and end colors.
