Welcome to the first episode of our Roblox Lua scripting tutorial series! In this episode, we'll cover the basics of getting started with scripting in Roblox using the Lua programming language.
Before we begin, make sure you have the following:
Let's start by creating a new place where we can practice our scripting. Follow these steps:
In Roblox, the basic building block is a "Part." We will use a Part to interact with in this tutorial.
Now, let's create our first script:
Double-click on the script you just added to open the Script Editor. Now, let's write some simple code:
-- This is a comment, it won't affect your code local part = script.Parent -- Get the parent of the script, which is the Part -- Function that changes the color of the Part when clicked local function changeColor() part.BrickColor = BrickColor.new("Bright blue") end -- Connect the "Touched" event of the Part to the "changeColor" function part.Touched:Connect(changeColor)
This script does the following:
partthat represents the Part this script is inside.
changeColorthat changes the Part's color to bright blue.
Touchedevent of the Part to the
changeColorfunction, so when the Part is touched, its color changes.
To test your script, click the "Play" button at the top of Roblox Studio. This will launch the game in test mode. When you touch the Part in the game, it should change color to bright blue.
Congratulations! You've just written and tested your first Roblox Lua script. In the next episode, we'll explore more scripting concepts and create more interactive experiences in Roblox.
Stay tuned for the next episode, and happy scripting!
