Fall Damage Tick Issue

Hello developers, I’ve came to a recent conclusion on this annoying script issue I have on my end, I’ve tried countless research and different solutions that would potentially resolve the issue itself, however I was not able to find any solution, so thus I was curious if there would be work-arounds or a way to fix this potential issue.

What am I trying to achieve?

  • I’m currently trying to achieve where the player will receive fall damage based on the tick used in the code, thus mainly to take damage based on the amount they’ve fallen from distance until they’ve landed based off the time-length.
  • I resort to only this as my game will contain additional teams with buffed health compared to other teams thus, that is why I want this result instead of a “max-fall-distance” amount and more-so a tick-fall time length amount.

What is the identified issue you’ve resulted in finding?

  • I’ve found a identified issue based on the fact when a player has loaded or continuously jumping multiple times which results in taking damage and ragdolling.

I’d appreciate any support or help given to me! :wink:

  • I will address anything necessary to resolve this issue.

This issue was resolved, I’ve found a solution that would benefit and fix any occurring issues, the tick() would retrieve a 0 or nil instance when jumping at times from a unsuspectable height, as it seems.

  • Thus how I’ve fixed it was to deny any requests that retrieve anything (nil or 0).

This is going to be left for anyone who needs it.
