How to :Clone a model/part locally?

Good evening all!

I’m having trouble cloning a model/part locally on the client.

I’m using a localscript (but have also tried a serverscript with RunContext = Client) to show a part/model when a box is touched, and make it disappear when another is touched.

Unfortunately, the part/model appears globally, despite me needing to to only appear locally.

Heres the code:

local enter = game.Workspace.enter
local leave = game.Workspace.leave
local peter = game.ReplicatedStorage.PETER
local vis = false

	if vis == true then
		print("Already visible!")
	if vis == false then
		NPC = game.ReplicatedStorage.PETER:Clone()
		NPC.Parent = game.Workspace
		vis = true

	if vis == true then
		vis = false
	if vis == false then
		print("Nothing happened!")

(The part is called peter because it is a picture of peter griffin for testing purposes)

Any help is appreciated! Is there a way to get this to work?

Have you checked server view? Maybe all client recieve touched events from all players.


I tested it using an alt on my phone. When one account steps into the box, the model appears, even for the account that stood still.

Touched events will fire if any thing touches it. Even if you have it locally connected → is player1 were to step on the part → Player2’s touched connection would still fire cause a part did in fact touch it. All you have to do is check if the player that touched the part is == to the local player.

For this we have to use the value returned by a .Touched connection. Which is the BasePart that touched it.

E.g for when they enter:

local PlayerService = game:GetService("Players");
local LocalPlayer = PlayerService.LocalPlayer;

	local GetHitPlayer = PlayerService:GetPlayerFromCharacter(Hit.Parent);
	if GetHitPlayer and GetHitPlayer == LocalPlayer then
		print("this means that our client touched the part!!")
		-- do ur peter griffen stuff here

and you would do the exact same thing for when they leave so that other players don’t make peter disappear!

Make a local script in StarterGui that has the scripts that clone the model, make sure the model is in ReplicatedStorage. Just so you know, I also encountered this issue and attacked it easily.
