How can I make this script target Zombies instead of players?

Asked by 1 year ago

I am trying to get this script to function when a zombie gets too close to a humanoid that has this script the humanoid will swing their weapon at the zombie, the only problem is that I don't know how to make the script target the zombies instead of players. After putting about an hours work into this I decided to come here for help, here is the part of the script that I am having trouble with

while true do
    local p = game.Players:GetChildren()
    for i = 1,#p do
        if p[i].Character~=nil then
            if p[i].Character:findFirstChild("Torso")~=nil then
                if (p[i].Character.Torso.Position - script.Parent.Torso.Position).magnitude < 5 then
                    local anim = Instance.new("StringValue")
                    anim.Value = possibleAnims[math.random(1, #possibleAnims)]
                    anim.Name = "toolanim"
                    anim.Parent = script.Parent.LinkedSword
                end
            end
        end
    end
    wait(0.5)
end

function swing()
     local anim = Instance.new("StringValue")
          anim.Value = possibleAnims[math.random(1, #possibleAnims)]
           anim.Name = "toolanim"
           anim.Parent = script.Parent.LinkedSword
end

while true do
    local p = game.Workspace:GetChildren()
    for i = 1,v in pairs(p) do
        if v.Name == "Zombie" then
        if (v.Torso.Position-script.Parent.Torso.Position).magnitude <= 5 then
                    swing()
        end
        end
    end
    wait(0.5)
end

Instead of cycling through the children of the Players instance, it cycles through the workspace though it may take a minute so I'd advice putting all of the zombies under a folder in workspace so the script doesn't have to go through every part,model,etc in the game. Really helps decrease lag.

You can discern NPCs from players using the PlayerFromCharacter() void as well. I believe it can be used on any model. If PlayerFromCharacter() returns nil when used, it means that the model in question is not controlled by a player, thus the model is either an NPC or an inanimate object.
