Roblox Trail Tutorial
My latest Roblox trail tutorial will show you how to make a trail on Roblox using scripting. Trails in Roblox are made up of three elements, a trail object and two attachments which tell the trail where to start and where to end. Similar to ParticleEmitters, you can customize many properties of trails such as the lifetime, length, colour and texture.
You don’t need much scripting knowledge to complete this Roblox trail tutorial. What we will be scripting is an event which checks for when a player enters the game. When they enter the game, we will clone the trail out of the ServerStorage and into their character and they will be linked with two attachments which are in the Head and the HumanoidRootPart.
The colour can be changed to either a solid colour or a sequence which you can edit. For example, you could have a sequence which goes through all of the colours of the rainbow, which I show you in the tutorial. The new Trail feature can be used in lots of games, one of the most common uses for it is in a shop GUI. You could have a button which inserts the trail into the player’s character when clicked if they have enough money, or if they buy a gamepass, you could award the trail to them. As you can easily customise the trail this means that there are lots of different combinations that you will be able to set up for the user to buy.
I’ve been making Roblox scripting tutorials for 2 years now and I love making creative projects like this one, mainly because there are lots of different possibilities of what you can make. As Roblox is the Imagination Platform, you can pretty much make anything on it if you imagine it, which is why I love it.
