How to move the position of your character?

Asked by 7 years ago

Hello everyone, good morning (or afternoon if your in a different time zone) and today I have a serious question that came up in my head.

Literally, how do you move the position of your character on the X,Y, and Z axis similar to how you would do it for a brick?

Lately I have been going into the keyDown stuff, and even though im a complete novice towards scripting and probably shouldn't be doing this kind of advanced stuff, I like to experiment.

My ultimate goal is to make a script that once your press a certain key on the keyboard, it sends your character moving in different positions, as you are about to see in the code I will show you.

player = game.Players.LocalPlayer

tool = script.Parent

tool.Equipped:connect(function(mouse)
    mouse.KeyDown:connect(function(key)
        if key == "h" then
            print("You pressed h")
        else
            print("Try again and press h")
        end
    end)
end)

That was my first attempt at doing anything with keyDown, and it is pretty basic.

You Cframe the character to a new area.

torso.CFrame = CFrame.new(-432, 2.2, 64) Champion121212 22 — 7y

So how would I be able to get the current position of the character, and add that one on? So that way it won't simply go to the position I put, and add on from the one the character is already at? wolfgangm17 0 — 7y

Since it's a tool, and I want for it to be local would it be someting like game.Workspace.Players.LocalPlayer.torso.CFrame = CFrame.new(-432, 2.2, 64)? Because I am basically confused on moving the character itself. wolfgangm17 0 — 7y

player = game.Players.LocalPlayer
local mouse = player:GetMouse()
tool = script.Parent
tool.Equipped:connect(function()
    mouse.KeyDown:connect(function(key)
        if key == "h" then
    player.Character:MoveTo(mouse.Hit)
            print("You pressed h")
        else
            print("Try again and press h")
        end
    end)
end)

I believe that's how it goes... Maybe not... Hope this helped, I'm sort of new to key's as well however I'm familiar with the moving of a character.

Doesn't seem to work since the output is telling me Position is not a valid member, also it looks like what you gave me moves the character when I press "h" wherever my mouse is? wolfgangm17 0 — 7y

Yes, change on line 07 "mouse.Hit.Position" to "mouse.Hit.CFrame" I know it's CFrame or Position... Something... e.e micke3212 35 — 7y
