Why can't I pick stuff up?

I’m making a game and I need the player to be able to pick up tools when they touch it but for some reason, even thought that is build into roblox it suddenly stopped working and now I can’t pick anything up. Does anyone know why it did that or how to fix it?

Is .Enabled in the tool or .CanTouch in the parts property disabled?

Those aren’t in the properties:

Would it be possible to provide a video of this behavior?

The behavior is nothing so that would be pointless. It it starts doing something I’ll record it.

It’s likely to be a collision issue between the player’s character and the tool.

Try ticking CanBeDropped, but I don’t think that will help.

Ya, it didn’t work. Moving it didn’t work either.

“even though that is built into Roblox it suddenly stopped working”
Was this tool working before, or did you just make it and it isn’t working?

Do you have the Tool Handle welded to other Parts and the welds are now broken?

When @octav20071 asked if CanTouch is in the Properties, they meant the Properties of the Parts, not the Tool. If CanTouch isn’t True then when the Player touches the Parts it won’t register and the Parts/Tool won’t be picked up.

Where do you have the Parts and Tool in the Explorer window? If you show a screenshot of all the Tool’s children we’ll have more information.

Yes, it was working earlier, here’s what I’ve got now, I didn’t change anything:

tools that can’t be picked up always has these options that cause them to not be able to be picked up, either there’s no part named ‘Handle’, touch interest in the handle or ‘CanTouch’ is turned off

It has a Handle and CanTouch is on.

could you try testing if you can equip it in your starter pack?

It works when I put it in StarterPack. Also, I noticed that it did not have any welds.

what were you doing when it suddenly stopped working?

I just finished making the final boss, it only has copy and pasted scripts so it shouldn’t have changed anything. Or I added a free model torch, I’ll go delete that.

So CanTouch is on in the Handle?
You only said it was on, but didn’t mention on which Part.

Yes, it’s on the handle. There are no other parts on the sword that have CanTouch in their properties.

Ok, it turns out the problem was in the script that came with the sword. I didn’t think that would be the problem since it’s made by roblox but apparently even a professional’s script can break the whole game.

This is the script:

How can I fix it?

this is a rescript by another scripter and has a lot of broken changes to it which is only intended for R15 rigs, you should use the original script provided from ROBLOX because this is probably a different model

Ok, how do I find the original?
