So I need help with this ice script. There is 3 scripts, the ice texture, the sound script, and the script for the ice you fall through
so for the sound of the ice breaking this was the script
function onTouch(hit) script.Sound:Play() end
This script had a sound in it btw but the sound didnt play
Then there was this Texture for the ice that was a crack and this was the non working script
function onTouch(hit) wait(1) script.Parent.Transparency = 0 end script.Parent.Touched:connect(onTouch)
The crack texture starts off as invisible and this script should make it visible
This is the script for falling through the ice and it worked but I might as well put it here
function onTouch(hit) script.Parent.CanCollide = false script.Parent.Transparency = 1 wait (5) script.Parent.CanCollide = true script.Parent.Transparency = 0 end script.Parent.Touched:connect(onTouch)
You have the idea of how to use the Touched event yet you have multiple scripts with this event to run separate code when you can easily run it in one.
To start, you need to set up the Touched event to only allow player interaction. We can do this by looking for the Humanoid if the Parent of
hit has one:
local function onTouch(hit) local human = hit.Parent:FindFirstChild("Humanoid") if human then --code here runs only if we get a character touching end end script.Parent.Touched:Connect(onTouch) --Setup event connection
Simple and easy to read. We then follow the sequence to get a 'ice' breaking effect. This includes the CanCollide and Transparency properties as you had used. I'll also add a cooldown variable to know when to make the ice a solid again.
local iceBlock = script.Parent local iceCooldown = 5 local sound = iceBlock.Sound --Make sure 'Sound' is a child of the BasePart. local canTouch = false local function onTouch(hit) local human = hit.Parent:FindFirstChild("Humanoid") if human then if canTouch then return end --this is a debounce canTouch = true iceBlock.Transparency = 1 iceBlock.CanCollide = false sound:Play() wait(iceCooldown) iceBlock.Transparency = 0 iceBlock.CanCollide = true canTouch = false end end iceBlock.Touched:Connect(onTouch) --Setup event connection
Notice how I included the
Sound object. Make sure that this sound object is inside of the part so it can play in 3D space. This makes it so that the sound emits from the position of the part.
You also mention of trying to place a Texture (Decal) on the ice block. If that's the case then you can extend this by adding another wait before setting the Transparency to 1 and
Instance.new() the Decal.
