How does AlignPosition work?

I made a system whereas a character follows a player with BodyPosition. But BodyPosition makes the character have a slight delay to its goal instead of being there constantly. I used Welds but the weight balance between the player’s character and the character is terrible. I was thinking of using AlignPosition due to its RigidityEnabled property. I added two attachements to the HRPs of the player character and character. But i dont know how to change the positions nor how to use AlignPosition.

So how does 1 and 2 attachement modes work?

How do i change position of the character?

Im asking this because the documentation of AlignPosition is poor. It only explains 45% of AlignPosition.


As you have seen in this video, The character is meant to go at a certain position… rather than being there quicker… it takes a longer time that expected to get their, Especially when you walk backwards.

That’s why i need to use AlignPosition. I tried using it asif it was BodyPosition, But the stand ends up in 1 position.


Have you tried looking for other posts with this same title?
This might be in your best interest to check out.

I did, But they dont truly answer my question. The answer in the post you linked to is hell bent on AlignORientation not AlignPosition.

I see. I think I know what value you’re looking for with AlignPosition, try enabling the ReactionForceEnabled boolean value(?)

Im going to add in a video of me using BodyPosition and what i meant.

I see your problem now, I apologize.

The problem stems from the fact that we have to take into account server-ping delay. The character following you takes into account the received position your character is currently at on the server. To fix this, just take advantage of Network Ownership.

Ok, That makes sense. Now then, I guess i am supposed to set The Owner to the Player?

Should i do it in a LocalScript or a ServerScript?

Network Ownership is only accessible via the server. Read the official documentation for more information.

Ok Tysm. I hate that little delay… So the player character should be the networkOwner? or The server should always be the networkOwner.

You can only assign a player to the NetworkOwner. Please check the official documentation for more questions, it’s all there :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:.

I did check the documention. It says that you can always make the server the networkOwner by doing


But i guess the player should be the networkOwner

Hey there,

Sorry for the late response.

nil represents the player instance that’d be taken in.

Ok! Thank you. Now i will manipulate the networkOwnerShip.
