Code Snippet‚Äč

Add the following code to Server/Index.lua file inside the package.

Server/Index.lua

-- Function to spawn a Character to a player
function SpawnCharacter(player)
-- Spawns a Character at position 0, 0, 0 with default's constructor parameters
local new_character = Character(Vector(1, 0, 100), Rotator(0, 0, 0), "helix::SK_None")
new_character:AddStaticMeshAttached("prop", "helix::SM_Cube")
new_character:SetCapsuleSize(32,64)
new_character:SetCanPickupPickables(false)
new_character:SetCanGrabProps(false)
new_character:SetCanCrouch(false)
new_character:SetCameraMode(2) -- Allows only Third Person
-- Possess the new Character
player:Possess(new_character)
end

-- Subscribes to an Event which is triggered when Players join the server (i.e. Spawn)
Player.Subscribe("Spawn", SpawnCharacter)

-- Iterates for all already connected players and give them a Character as well
-- This will make sure you also get a Character when you reload the package
Package.Subscribe("Load", function()
for k, player in pairs(Player.GetAll()) do
SpawnCharacter(player)
end
end)
