SmartObject is a top-level container for some complex objects and inherits everything from CoreObject. Note that some properties, such as
visibility, may not be respected by a SmartObject.
|Property Name||Return Type||Description||Tags|
| || ||Assigns the SmartObject to a team. Value range from 0 to 4. 0 is neutral team.||Read-Write|
| || ||If ||Read-Write|
|Function Name||Return Type||Description||Tags|
| || ||Returns a table containing the names and values of all smart properties on a SmartObject.||None|
| || ||Given a property name, returns the current value of that property on a SmartObject. Returns the value, which can be an integer, number, boolean, string, Vector3, Rotator, Color, or nil if not found. Second return value is a boolean, true if the property was found and false if not.||None|
| || ||Sets the value of an exposed property. Value can be of type number, boolean, string, Vector3, Rotation or Color, but must match the type of the property. Returns true if the property was set successfully and false if not.||None|
In this example, a script is placed as the child of a
SmartObject in the hierarchy. If the object has any smart properties, those are printed out to the Event Log.
local SMART_OBJECT = script.parent if SMART_OBJECT:IsA("SmartObject") then print("Smart properties for " .. SMART_OBJECT.name) local properties = SMART_OBJECT:GetSmartProperties() for key,value in pairs(properties) do print(key .. " = " .. tostring(value)) end else print(SMART_OBJECT.name .. " is not a Smart Object.") end

In this example, we control the "Sun Light" object in the hierarchy to implement a sort of day/night cycle. We achieve this by rotating the sun object, but it's also necessary to modify the sun's color and light intensity over time.
local SUN = script.parent local SUNRISE_COLOR = Color.PURPLE local SPEED = 10 local defaultSunColor = SUN:GetSmartProperty("Light Color") local degrees = 30 function Tick(deltaTime) degrees = degrees + deltaTime * SPEED if degrees > 360 then degrees = degrees - 360 elseif degrees < 0 then degrees = degrees + 360 end -- 0 at midday, 1 at both horizons local cycle = (math.cos(math.rad((degrees+90) * 2)) * 0.5) + 0.5 local quat = Quaternion.New(Vector3.New(0,1,0), degrees) SUN:SetWorldRotation(quat:GetRotation()) SUN:SetSmartProperty("Light Color", Color.Lerp(SUNRISE_COLOR, defaultSunColor, cycle)) SUN:SetSmartProperty("Intensity", 2 + (1.2 * cycle)) end
