How to add particle emitter to player's feet, and check if player is stationary

Hello today i want to make it so when the player walks on sand or some other material a particle emitter activates and deactivates when stepped on grass for example. I think to spawn it i might i have to use instance.new but idk. I know how to do most of this i think here is what i have so far, the script will be in startercharacterscripts.

wait(5)
local chara = script.Parent:FindFirstChild("Humanoid")

script.Parent.LeftFoot.ParticlePart.Enabled = false

script.Parent.RightFoot.ParticlePart.Enabled = false

--Creating of the Parts and ParticleEmitter here i think

if chara.FloorMaterial == Enum.Material.Sand then

script.Parent.LeftFoot.ParticlePart.Enabled = true

script.Parent.RightFoot.ParticlePart.Enabled = true


elseif chara.FloorMaterial == Enum.Material.Grass then

script.Parent.LeftFoot.ParticlePart.Enabled = false

script.Parent.RightFoot.ParticlePart.Enabled = false

end

i have no idea where the check if player is stationary part goes

In order to check if the player is not stationary, you could try using HumanoidRootPart.Velocity.magnitude, and check if that is greater than a specific number.

Also instead of waiting every 5 seconds, you could use

Humanoid:GetPropertyChangedSignal("FloorMaterial"):Connect(function()
  --rest of script goes here...
end)

There are multiple ways to check if a player is stationary. The most common way is to check the WalkToPoint of the players humanoid.

For example:

if humanoid.WalkToPoint == Vector3.new(0,0,0) then
--stationary
else
--moving
end
