  • The only real think I can nit-pick from this is that RBXLua isn't a language of its own. It's still Lua. ROBLOX scripting uses Lua. RBXLua isn't a new scripting language, it's just Luawith a few added methods.


  • @OldPalHappy
    Thanks, I will take note.


  • @OldPalHappy More like removed a lot of the features :P


  • @kingdom5 I still question why ROBLOX doesn't use the os.date() method. It's so useful!


  • @Spongocardo Don't even get me started lol


  • The 'basic scripting tutorial' is pretty saturated. It isn't worth it unless the tutorial is legitimately unprecedented from an insightful, experienced, successful coder, which I doubt you are. Not trying to stop you. But this is the likely consensus.
