Need help understanding Metatables

I have issues understanding how to use a metatable, i’ve watched multiple tutorials, yet it feels like the information’s just going in one ear, and out the other, i can’t process any of it.

Can somebody explain metatables and their uses to me as if i were a middle schooler.

Only thing i understand, and have tried is :setmetatable() but thats it

I learned metatables when i was in middle school just with documentation and dev forum. These two posts should help you out

Hope it helps.


Thank you for this! But do you have any examples of when and how they could be used?
