Help me make a button that spawns a clone?

Asked by 11 months ago
Edited 11 months ago

I have a partial script that reacts when you touch it but i want it to spawn a clone of the player that touches it at a specific location. Any help would be appreciated :P

Here is the script:

local button = game.Workspace.ArenaSpawn

local function createclone(other)
    local parent = other.Parent
    if game.Players:GetPlayerFromCharacter(parent)then

    end
end

button.Touched:connect(createclone)

Script after doing what i think you told me lol :

local button = game.Workspace.ArenaSpawn

local function createclone(player)
    local parent = player.Parent
    --Clone player
    local Clone = parent:Clone()
    Clone.Parent = game.workspace
    Clone:MoveTo(button.Position)

    end

button.Touched:connect(createclone)

Here's your current script:

local button = game.Workspace.ArenaSpawn

local function createclone(other)
    local parent = other.Parent
    if game.Players:GetPlayerFromCharacter(parent)then

    end
end

button.Touched:connect(createclone)

So you would like a script that would create a clone of the player that touches it. Continuing on on your script, you have already started the part on the button being touched. With that part out of the way, here is how you would clone.

In your script, other, is the hit, which would be the body part of the player. Thus, parent, would be the player. I do suggest you change its name to "Player" to avoid confusion. Anyway, in order to clone, you should use Clone() which will be used to clone the player. After cloning, place the clone into workspace. And finally, to move a model, in this case, a clone, you should use MoveTo() to move the clone to your desired location, in this case, the button.

Here's the new edit, find for the one you'd like:

1 This is for one time use every time touched

local button = game.Workspace.ArenaSpawn
local Done = false

local function createclone(other)
    humanoid = other.Parent:FindFirstChild("Humanoid")
    if humanoid and not Done then
    local player = other.Parent
    player.Archivable = true
    --Clone player
    local Clones = player:Clone()
    Clones.Parent = game.Workspace
    Clones:MoveTo(button.Position)
    player.Archivable = false
    Done = true
    end
end

button.Touched:connect(createclone)

2 This is for many time use with a cool down of one second

local button = game.Workspace.ArenaSpawn
local Done = false

local function createclone(other)
    humanoid = other.Parent:FindFirstChild("Humanoid")
    if humanoid and not Done then
    Done = true
    wait(1)
    local player = other.Parent
    player.Archivable = true
    --Clone player
    local Clones = player:Clone()
    Clones.Parent = game.Workspace
    Clones:MoveTo(button.Position)
    player.Archivable = false
    Done = false
    end
end

button.Touched:connect(createclone)

Hmmm... I don't seem to be able to spot any errors, could you try replacing the name of the variable other.Parent to local Player = other.Parent? AbandonedRick 102 — 11mo

Do remember to change local Clone = parent:Clone() to local Clone = Player.Clone() AbandonedRick 102 — 11mo

Omg thanks man, you're a saint. i've been working on this for hours. this was a really big help, the game i'm trying to make revolves around cloning so i really needed this. i'll definitely be looking over this script to see how it functions so i can maybe learn from it :P sora10056 20 — 11mo
