Hit.parent issue

Hi, is there a way for this script to not hit "HumanoidRootPart? and only hit “humanoid” so humanoidrootpart’s transparency wouldn’t be changed
I don’t know what I would have to write

part.Touched:Connect(function(hit)
    if hit.Parent:FindFirstChild("Humanoid") or hit.Parent.Parent:FindFirstChild("Humanoid") then
       local hrp = hit.Parent:FindFirstChild("HumanoidRootPart") or hit.Parent.Parent:FindFirstChild("HumanoidRootPart")
       hrp.Transparency = 0.5
    end
end)

The Humanoid is not an actual part rather just something to store the character’s info so It’s not possible to hit the Humanoid

Can you tell me what your script is supposed to do? This will let me help you easily

it’s to check if its a humanoid or not. I want the script to not hit HumanoidRootPart

cuz if it does, this happens

HumanoidRootPart is usually invisible, is there anyway for the script to not change that part’s transparency?

part.Touched:Connect(function(hit)
    if hit.Parent:FindFirstChild("Humanoid") then
          local char = hit.Parent
          for i, v in pairs(char:GetChildren()) do
                if v.Name ~= "HumanoidRootPart" then
                       if v:IsA("Part") then
                          v.Transparency = .01
                       end
                      
                end
          end
    end
end)

this should be fine? i guess

But I want the script to not hit HumanoidRootPart! or it would become visible
like in the gif
https://i.gyazo.com/d9d8e989339c922d3f75f653d918755f.mp4

part.Touched:Connect(function(hit)
    if hit.Parent:FindFirstChild("Humanoid") or hit.Parent.Parent:FindFirstChild("Humanoid") then
       local hrp = hit.Parent:FindFirstChild("Humanoid") or hit.Parent.Parent:FindFirstChild("Humanoid")
       hrp.Transparency = 0.5
    end
end)

Just check if its not HumanoidRootPart:
if hit.Name ~= "HumanoidRootPart" then

that makes HumanoidRootPart visible.

Just check if hit.Name == "HumanoidRootPart"

Thank you, I didn’t know about that.

I have another question, how can I make it make the hat invisible too?
I know it has to be with getchildren() and if v:IsA(“MeshPart”) but it doesn’t work
here is the full script:

here is the gif btw

local part = script.Parent

part.Touched:Connect(function(hit)
   if hit.Parent:FindFirstChildOfClass("Humanoid") then
      for _, v in ipairs(hit.Parent:GetDescendants()) do
         if v.Name ~= "HumanoidRootPart" and v:IsA("BasePart") then
            for i = 0, 100 do
              v.Transparency  += 0.01
            end
         end
      end
   end
end)
