This is a code to detect every tile in 8 directions in range of X tiles from TILE :

func getneighbours(TILE,X) :
      var surroundingtiles = []
      for a in range(-X,X):
             for b in range(-X,X):
                    var currenttile = Vector2(a,b)
                    if not surroundingtiles.has(currenttile) and not currenttile = TILE  :
      return surroundingtiles

I made it on the go, it might have some inaccuracy :wink:
