What am I doing wrong with my for loop?

Edited 2 years ago

So this is my script which slowly turns another brick known as "seed" invisible if a player steps on another part.

local seed = game.Workspace.Seed
script.Parent.Touched:connect(function(hit)
if hit.Parent:FindFirstChild("Humanoid")then
for i= 0,1,-0.01  do
seed.Transparency = i

wait()
end
end
end)



It works only If I get rid of the for loop, and change it to 'seed.Transparency = 1'. Why is this? Do for loops not work with functions and 'FindFirstChild'?

You need to change your (-0.01 to 0.01) and the wait to (0.01)

finished code=

local seed = game.Workspace.Seed
script.Parent.Touched:connect(function(hit)
if hit.Parent:FindFirstChild("Humanoid")then
for i= 0,1,0.01  do
seed.Transparency = i

wait(0.01)
end
end
end)


Explanation: So you were making it go up to 1, but in your 3rd argument you were making it go down basically making it useless

The 3rd argument determines if the number goes up, or down

Oh! Thank you so much, you explained it perfectly and it worked. One more thing, how do I disconnect this function so I can only make it happen once? crystalclay 70 — 2y
