Script is a CoreObject representing a script in the hierarchy. While not technically a property, a script can access itself using the

||Returns the table containing any non-local variables and functions created by the script. This can be used to call (or overwrite!) functions on another script.||Read-Only|
context two scripts can communicate directly by calling on each other's functions and properties. Notice that '.' is used instead of ':' when accessing context functions. In the following example, the first script is placed directly in the hierarchy and the second script is placed inside a template of some sort. When a new player joins, the first script spawns a copy of the template and tells it about the new player. The template then follows the player around as they move.
Script directly in hierarchy:
local followTemplate = script:GetCustomProperty("FollowTemplate") Game.playerJoinedEvent:Connect(function(player) local obj = World.SpawnAsset(followTemplate) -- Locate the script inside local followScript = obj:FindDescendantByType("Script") -- Call the context function followScript.context.SetTarget(player) end) --[[#description Script located inside a template. The 'targetPlayer' property and the 'SetTarget()' function can be accessed externally through the context. ]] targetPlayer = nil function SetTarget(player) targetPlayer = player script:FindTemplateRoot():Follow(player, 400, 300) end
