BetterScripts - Automatically replace the default 'print("Hello world!")' with something more useful!

Hey there DevForum!
I wanted to share a super basic plugin I made a long time ago. I only recently found out other people would use this when sharing it with a few of my friends, and was urged to post about it.

A solid 11 lines of code (very complex, I know).

What does this do?
When you create a new script, instead of being met with everyone’s favorite print("Hello world!"), you’re met with this (see image below), just with your name instead of mine, and it actually updates to whatever year it is.

It also replaces the default ModuleScript source with this (once again, see image below)!

How to use?
All you have to do is install the plugin by clicking here!

When enabled, any new scripts will be magically replaced!

Also to anyone who’s wondering the magic behind this plugin, it begins with script.source, good luck!

Please link said tutorial. I had an awful time learning plugin development with little to no Roblox support.

This is not at all what I have above, aside from the fact that I use script.Source. Please read the post before making such claims.

Great Plugin! You should add the option to have be replaced with whatever you want.

A major flaw this plugin will have is whenever you clone any script will data already on it, it will automatically change it to one of the “presets”. Any ideas how to get around this?

I don’t think so? It only changes newly created scripts…or scripts that already have the default message, and are cloned.
