Say I wanted to generate 100 2x2x2 parts in a square perfectly fitting together. I started with a for loop and generated 100 2x2x2 parts, but I'm not sure what to do from there.

local CurrentPos = Vector3.new(0, 0, 0)

for i = 1, 100 do
wait(0.1)
local Part = Instance.new("Part", Workspace)
Part.Anchored = true
Part.Size = Vector3.new(2, 2, 2)
CurrentPos = CurrentPos + Vector3.new(2, 0, 0)
Part.Position = CurrentPos
if i % 10 == 0 then
CurrentPos = Vector3.new(0, 0, CurrentPos.Z+2)
end
end


The above would do as you require.

The modulus operator, %, is used to return the remainder of the division between two given numbers. In this case I'm using it in an if statement to check if something is a multiple of ten, when it is it starts a new line on the Z-axis (allowing for a 10x10 square).

The rest is pretty self explanatory. 0
But you aren't using the modulus operator at all? Bubby4j 231 — 8y 0
As Waffle pointed out in his reply, it's apparently eaten if there are no spaces. I've edited what I posted. Avros 5 — 8y 0   1waffle1 2908    8 years ago
for x=0,9 do
for y=0,9 do
local e=Instance.new("Part")
e.FormFactor="Symmetric"
e.Size=Vector3.new(2,2,2)
e.Position=Vector3.new(x,0,y)*2
e.Parent=workspace
end
end


or if you only want one for loop:

for i=0,99 do
local e=Instance.new("Part")
e.FormFactor="Symmetric"
e.Size=Vector3.new(2,2,2)
e.Position=Vector3.new(i % 10,0,math.floor(i/10))*2
end 0
apparently you have to add spaces to use the modulus operator on this website or it eats it. 1waffle1 2908 — 8y
