I have create extension of Position3D class with my custom name, it looks like this:

extends Position3D

class_name CrossControl

But when I’m asking for the class using get_class() function it’s still returning me original name (Position3D).

How to create a new class that returns its name correctly?

For now I’m just overriding get_class() function but I’m not sure that it’s correct way?

I don’t know why Dlean Jeans didn’t post his link as answer, because this Github issue sums up the whole discussion nicely:

Yes, overriding get_class() is currently the best way to do it, but this issue is being discussed already and might lead to a changed behaviour of get_class in the future.
