On Roblox, scripting can be difficult for a newcomer to learn. However, there are lots of resources which you can use to pick up scripting at your own pace so that it becomes easier for you. This article goes through most of these resources which you can use to expand your knowledge of scripting.
Often, new scripters on Roblox want to dive straight in and make awesome creations straight away. However, you can’t learn scripting overnight, it is a long process which involves learning the basics first. Most of the advanced scripts on Roblox use a lot of the basic topics which you need to know. I made a full YouTube series teaching you all of the basics of Roblox scripting, which you can watch above.
The Roblox Developer Hub is also a good place to go if you have any scripting issues or if you are unsure about anything regarding scripting. All of the latest Roblox updates are posted there as well, so it’s always good to check in there to see if there are any updates or things which have become deprecated.
Another place where you can go to get help is the Roblox DevForum. There are thousands of developers on that forum who are willing to help you with any scripting problems. They can even give you a different explanation on how to do something something, so that you might be able to grasp an area of scripting which you didn’t understand before. The best thing about this forum, though, is that they are online 24/7. No matter what time you are online, there will always be some scripters online to help you, because of timezones.
In my opinion, I don’t think scripting is hard once you start learning it. What you have to remember is that all that scripting is, is just telling your computer what to do via instructions. You are the one in control of your computer.
Learning the basics of scripting can be fun, too! Experimenting with your own projects and making funky things is what made scripting fun for me, because it gave me endless possibilities of things that I could make. Don’t give up if it looks too hard, just keep on going and you’ll get there in the end!
