Hi guys, I'm doing my first game, basically it's a survival game, where you have machines that want to kill you, and you have to find a safe place. These machines are the loose lasers, two in each arm. The laser script has a problem, they were meant to deal damage, but they're not. They are lasers that are released in different directions. Here is the original script:
gun = script.Parent function findNearestTorso(pos) local list = game.Workspace:children() local torso = nil local dist = 450 local temp = nil local human = nil local temp2 = nil for x = 1, #list do temp2 = list[x] if (temp2.className == "Model") and (temp2 ~= script.Parent) then temp = temp2:findFirstChild("Torso") human = temp2:findFirstChild("Humanoid") if (temp ~= nil) and (human ~= nil) and (human.Health > 0) then if (temp.Position - pos).magnitude < dist then torso = temp dist = (temp.Position - pos).magnitude end end end end return torso end while true do wait(.5) local target = findNearestTorso(script.Parent.Position) if target ~= nil then local P = Instance.new("Part") P.Name = "Laser" P.formFactor = 0 P.Size = Vector3.new(10,10,10) connection = script.Parent.Touched:connect(onTouch) local Distance = (target.Position - gun.Position).magnitude script.Parent.Mesh.Scale = Vector3.new(0.25, 0.25, Distance) P.CFrame = CFrame.new(gun.Position, target.Position)*CFrame.new(0, 0, -Distance/2) script.Parent.Mesh:Clone().Parent = P P.Parent = game.Workspace P.BrickColor = BrickColor.new("Toothpaste") P.Transparency = 0 P.Reflectance = 0 P.Material = "Neon" P.Anchored = true P.CanCollide = true target.Parent.Humanoid.Health = target.Parent.Humanoid.Health - 100 wait(1) P:remove() end end
Well the idea is that the laser HAVE TO HURT IN THE TIME YOU GET ON, but I still do not know anything about roblox lua, so I'm in need of help. The idea is to deal damage when it hits, But when I hit no harm, I hope you guys help me.
You are connecting a function
onTouch on line 34 to the Touched event. But
onTouch has not been defined.
You need to define it:
local dmg = 100; --Variable for damage local db = false; --Debounce function onTouch(hit) --'hit' is the object the laser has hit if db then return end --Debounce logic db = true; --Check for player local hum = hit.Parent:FindFirstChild("Humanoid"); if hum then --Damage player hum.Health = hum.Health - dmg; end db = false; end
