I've been trying to find good places to start lua scripting but i cant find anywhere to start. I've check a bunch of sites already, so i'm just coming here to see where you guys started to try and help me start. any good websites or books?
If you're looking to start lua here's a few things you need to know.
Look at the properties. When you compare lua is basically like speaking only you have to be more exact.
script.Parent --Finds the parent of the script. script.Transparency --Finds how visible the block is.[Note: it has to be a number value or integer as compared to the properties value.] script.CanCollide --Finds if you can walk through the block or not.
So let's say you need to figure out an if statement to compare. These are basics. You would say
if script.Parent.Transparency == x then --script.Parent.[Block in workspace] is equal to number return true
I would say more but I would rather not type so here are some learning tips:
Ask for help when needed but don't always ask for help. Try to figure stuff out by yourself. Always practice so you can learn to script faster and more efficiently.
