StarterPlayer

Deprecated

A service which allows the defaults of properties in the Player object to be set. When a player enters the server, each property of the player object is set to the current value of the corresponding property in StarterPlayer.

Additionally, you may add four objects to this service:

  • A StarterPlayerScripts instance, with scripts that run once for each player.
  • A StarterCharacterScripts instance, with scripts to add to each player’s character every time they spawn.
  • A Humanoid instance named StarterHumanoid, which will be used as the default humanoid for each player’s character.
  • A Model instance named StarterCharacter, which will be used as the character model for all players

A typical structure may look something like this:
StarterPlayer Tree
