-- Function to add a Nametag to a Player
function AddNametag(player, character)
-- Try to get it's character
if (character == nil) then
character = player:GetControlledCharacter()
if (character == nil) then return end
end

-- Spawns the Nametag (TextRender),
local nametag = TextRender(
Vector(), -- Any Location
Rotator(), -- Any Rotation
player:GetName(), -- Player Name
Vector(0.5, 0.5, 0.5), -- 50% Scale
Color(1, 1, 1), -- White
FontType.Roboto, -- Roboto Font
TextRenderAlignCamera.AlignCameraRotation -- Follow Camera Rotation
)

-- Attaches it to the character and saves it to the player's values
nametag:AttachTo(character)
nametag:SetRelativeLocation(Vector(0, 0, 250))

player:SetValue("Nametag", nametag)
end

-- Function to remove a Nametag from a Player
function RemoveNametag(player, character)
-- Try to get it's character
if (character == nil) then
character = player:GetControlledCharacter()
if (character == nil) then return end
end

-- Gets the Nametag from the player, if any, and destroys it
local text_render = player:GetValue("Nametag")
if (text_render and text_render:IsValid()) then
text_render:Destroy()
end
end

-- Adds a new Nametag to a character which was possessed
Character.Subscribe("Possessed", function(character, player)
AddNametag(player, character)
end)

-- Removes the Nametag from a character which was unpossessed
Character.Subscribe("UnPossessed", function(character, player)
RemoveNametag(player, character)
end)

-- When a Player is spawned - for when you connect and there is already Player's connected
Player.Subscribe("Spawn", function(player)
RemoveNametag(player)
AddNametag(player)
end)
