I believe os.time() is your best bet to accomplish this.

You can read more about it here

Hope this solves your problem! :smile:

I’m testing the example script of roblox and I dont understand this output: image

2. print(os.time({
3. year=2020, month=4, day=15, -- Date components
4. hour=16, min=28, sec=0 -- Time components
5. })) --> 1586968080```

If that seems too complex you can also try to simplify your work.

as for os.time(), it would require more than just printing as it is more complex coding.

Also, I didn’t understand what is “timestamp”.

That is because you don’t access it that way. Its a dictionary.
Heres my function for getting an array of the time. Bot LocalTime and UTC:
(It will return a table with the values in, its easy to use)
