    Would like if someone could help me with this... just started messing with .lua stuffs not long ago crashed almost when object is placed.

    what I was I trying: creating something that when placed, disapears in 5 seconds or on interaction (object.smash?)

    what is happening: crashes when I put that object down

    Could someone help me with that?

    [Error] WorldServerThread exception caught handling incoming packets for client 1: (JsonException) Json not an array of size 2 in jsonToVec2F
    [0] 7ff6d9137153 Star::captureStack
    [1] 7ff6d9135ede Star::StarException::StarException
    [2] 7ff6d90e6be2 Star::jsonToVec2F
    [3] 7ff6d93d6bd7 Star::Object::init

    [9] 7fffccde1fe4 BaseThreadInitThunk
    [10] 7fffcd60efb1 RtlUserThreadStart
    (*This is only partial of the log)

    These are the codes in .lua file:
    function init()
       self.triggerTimer = 0
    function onInteraction()
    function update(dt)
       if self.triggerTimer >= 5 then
         self.triggerTimer = self.triggerTimer + 1
    Thank you in advance if you can help me out.

    p/s: by the way anyway to change to topic thingy to modding help? I chose the wrong one by accident...
    p/s: I found the topic thingy, never mind about the p/s above...

    I think there might be small issues with your code there - only guessing at your intent - but nothing that should trigger that error. Vect2F stands for a 2 vector array using float numbers(rather than integers). I think the issue is actually data in your object. Typically this is for [x. y] coordinates, offsets, etc.

    The rest of the log(also use code insert) might shed some light. Your object and animation file also might.

    Thanks mate... I just found out I made a small mistake there... works now... problem at the animationPosition I only have 1 value instead of to as to x and y, much appreciation =D
