They have extremely neat spells and I don’t get how they do it. Just to let you know I am not the most advanced scripter so I might not understand everything you say. I want my spell to have a zig-zag look to it like in Magic Training. Another problem is I don’t really know where to start.
Welp, thanks for reading my thread, reply if you can and yeah, Bye!
oh, you want to make the actual commands, well, there are plenty of tutorials out there, i just don’t know the specific names. I saw a community tutorial a few days ago about making rays with a pistol, and you can just search the general words, and try to modify the script he uses
@iGalaxyWorld So, I speciallize in the creation of such systems, and what version you might want to start looking at, is a very basic version. I can make very basic system for you, just so you get the feel, because all wands that are made in the HP(Harry Potter) genre follow the same configuration. Local spell recognition to load the spell, then a remotes fired if the spell is loaded when the mousebutton1 is clicked, and then the remote fires a fuction that creates a projectile and cframes it in loops in the direction of the endPosition(Mouse.Hit) from the startPosition(Wand tip). Raycasting is used in the loop to detect hit. It is not too difficult when you get used to it, but you will need to be familiar with raycasting and remotes. As far as the zig zag goes, that is in the maths of the cframe. In order to make it a projectile you generate a random position based off of the “Zig zag amount value” and then send the projectile in this loop.
I have some examples of very simple versions of this
Game with wand projectile example:
Now this is not exactly what you need, but you can adapt it to work with your game. There is a guide on admin commands where you can learn to make your own admin commands. Now, you could just adapt it by replacing some of the code such as the IsAdmin() function with nothing, or you could add something where you have to check if the player has enough “Magic” or something like that before running the command. Then you just trigger a function for each command/spell and it acts as if you are casting a spell.
@iGalaxyWorld All you would need now is just some good particles, and a trail. The wands I showed u uses two trails to give that “lightning” effect. You just gotta play around with it. Some games like wizard life uses trails with a special texture. So you just play around until you find something you like.
