How to make Beams turn on at a specific time?

Basically, I am trying to make beams turn on only at a certain time. I know you can do this with lights but I don’t know how to do it with beams. I don’t want the beams to show during daytime in my game.

I want them to turn on at 6pm and turn off around 6am.
I have searched the YouTube and the Forum but I didn’t really get the clear answer to what I am looking for. If anyone can help me it would be really appreciated. Thanks!

You would need to insert a Script into the light Part

Do you have a time system in the Game?

I do have a time system in my game set already yes.

Is time set with a Number or Int Value?

Im sorry. Do you mind showing me an example of what it is? I’m not that advanced at scripting sorry.


Its ok nothing to be sorry about

Insert a number value into the server storage

ok I put the number value in server storage

if you want I can give you my discord

sure that would help RedMelon#8350

Is there no property such as Enabled in the lights? If there is, you could just do Enabled = true or Enabled = false when the time hits 6pm/6am.

See, I get what you mean I just don’t know how to type the full thing. Im not really much of a scripter.

Could you provide a screenshot of the properties of the light?

Try using this. The script is inserted into the beam object itself:

(sorry idk how to do the propper code format on this forum)
b = script.Parent

local oh,om = 6,10 – Open Time (hours,minutes)
local ch,cm = 17,30 – Close Time (hours, minutes)

local l = game:service(“Lighting”)
if (om == nil) then om = 0 end
if (cm == nil) then cm = 0 end

function TimeChanged()
local ot = (oh + (om/60)) * 60
local ct = (ch + (cm/60)) * 60
if (ot < ct) then
if (l:GetMinutesAfterMidnight() >= ot) and (l:GetMinutesAfterMidnight() <= ct) then
b.Enabled = false
b.Enabled = true
elseif (ot > ct) then
if (l:GetMinutesAfterMidnight() >= ot) or (l:GetMinutesAfterMidnight() <= ct) then
b.Enabled = false
b.Enabled = true

if (property == “TimeOfDay”) then

If you look at you’ll find this page that says how to do it with lights.
If you make it turn the Beams off/on using the Enabled property then it’ll work the same.
