Welding Bug in Roblox?

You can write your topic however you want, but you need to answer these questions:

  1. What do you want to achieve? Keep it simple and clear!
    What I am trying to do is keep the clothing on the player. They are welded to the player in startercharacter.

  2. What is the issue? Include screenshots / videos if possible!
    Our issue is that when a player respawns they loose their clothing and if they do have clothing it seems to be on the client only even though the respawn and stuff is on server.

  3. What solutions have you tried so far? Did you look for solutions on the Developer Hub?
    I’ve tried all types of things like attachments, weld constraints, welds, manual welds etc. Yeah i looked for some, they kept saying its like a bug with welds.

this is what the startercharacter looks like.

The individual clothing pieces, I thought i could do it that way but still doesnt work either. Annotation 2020-02-21 110846

Alrighty. Let me play around and see what I can do.

alrighty, also something to note, the character’s customization stuff still loads and works, just seems the clothing is not.

May I also ask why you’re firing the DataRemote to the Client and then from the Client to the Server?

and this is a separate place, like after finishing you teleport to the main game, and then it loads it

soo after they are teleported to the main game, that script fires the client and the client gets the teleport data that was transferred, then sends the data to the server via OnServerEvent and then the server loads up the player’s customization.

Alright it seems to be loading on the server alright, but I am getting the issue with it not doing it upon respawn. Looking into it now.

Alright I found the issue.

When morphing the player you did

cloth:Clone()
cloth.Parent = v

which is setting the parent of the original morph model. you should do

newCloth = cloth:Clone()
newCloth.Parent = v
newCloth.CFrame = v.CFrame
						
local weld = Instance.new("Weld")
weld.Part0 = v
weld.Part1 = newCloth
weld.C0 = newCloth.CFrame:toObjectSpace(v.CFrame)
weld.Parent = newCloth
