LocalTransparencyModifier

BasePart

float

The LocalTransparencyModifier property is a multiplier to BasePart/Transparency that is only visible to the local client. It does not replicate from client to server. It is useful for when a part should not render for a specific client, such as how the player does not see their character’s body parts when they zoom into first person mode.

The property modifies the local part’s transparency increases a part’s transparency on a scale from 0 to 1 using the following formula:

	-- Calculate the part’s client-side transparency. Values greater than 1 round down to 1.
	local clientTransparency = part.Transparency + (1 * part.localTransparencyModifier)

Take a look at the table below for an example of how this property affect’s a part’s client-side transparency:

Transparency LocalTransparencyModifier Server-Side Transparency Client-Side Transparency Description
0.5 0 0.5 0.5 A modifier value of 0.5 means that the part’s client-side transparency is affected as follows: 0.5 + 1*0 = 0.5. The part’s client-side transparency equals its server-side transparency.
0.5 0.5 0.5 0.75 A modifier value of 0.5 means that the part’s client-side transparency is affected as follows: 0.5 + 1*0.5 = 0.75
0.5 1 0.5 1 A modifier value of 1 means that the part’s client-side transparency is affected as follows: 0.5 + 1*1 = >1. The client does not render the part.

X-Ray Vision

This code sample gives the local client X-ray vision using LocalTransparencyModifier. It allows the player to see through all parts in the Workspace, which are found using recursion.
