Adding leaderboard points on pickup and removing on drop?

Asked by 4 months ago

(Im not asking for a script im simply asking how would I approach this/format) So, how would i make a tool that would run this code:

game.Players.LocalPlayer.leaderstats.Weight.Value = game.Players.LocalPlayer.leaderstats.Weight.Value + 10

and this code on drop:

game.Players.LocalPlayer.leaderstats.Weight.Value = game.Players.LocalPlayer.leaderstats.Weight.Value - 10

Are you referring to whenever a tool gets picked up and dropped? casper123123123 359 — 4mo
yes RedDeadDevil1908 52 — 4mo
Did my answer give you any direction on where to start? casper123123123 359 — 4mo
you would be much better off if you created a variable for weight. User#21908 15 — 4mo

Whenever you want to perform any sort of Mathematical Arithmetic on a Number you need to always set it equal to itself and then the Arithmetic. What you are trying to achieve is very easy. I recommend to first read this discussion about it . I would personally go with storing all the tools they have in a Table. Anyway's that's pretty much all the information you need really. Here are a few links you could use.
