# Fall Damage based on Velocity

Hey everybody!
How would i go about making a fall damage based on velocity

I know how to use Velocity.Y or Velocity.Magnitude but not in Fall damage Context How would i do this?

Could you possibly make a variable for the damage that is = to the players y velocity?

Yes but im not sure how to really make a fall damage

fallTime = 0
while true do
x = wait()
if script.Parent.Torso.Velocity.Y <= -10 then --Finds whether or not the player has begun falling and starts a timer
fallTime = fallTime + x
end
if script.Parent.Torso.Velocity.Y > -10 then --Finds when the player has stopped falling
if fallTime >= 0.4 then --Finds whether or not the player has been falling long enough to take damage
script.Parent.Humanoid:TakeDamage(fallTime * 50) --Deals damage directly proportional to falling time; can simply change the 50 to another factor balance it differently
end
fallTime = 0
end
end

This is an example code that uses the players velocity.

Hi! Just wondering if you could clarify on what you mean by â€śfall damage based on velocityâ€ť!

Do you mean that if I fall and hit the ground at a certain velocity, I will take a certain amount of damage independent of the velocity?

Or that if I fall and hit the ground based on certain factors (air time for instance), I will take a certain amount of damage that is calculated based on the velocity just before I hit the ground?

Either way, I would refer you to this lovely article that might have information on this topic: https://devforum.roblox.com/t/best-way-to-make-fall-damage/507182
