I’m not too sure how to add images for 2d sprites in this engine. Every tutorial for making games in this engine never shows how to add images. What’s an easy way I can do this?

Note: I’ve only started using this engine recently and I don’t know a whole lot about it, so please don’t go too deep! :slight_smile:

This is covered in lots of tutorials:

  1. Copy whatever images you want to use into your project folder
  2. Add a Sprite node
  3. Drag your image from the FileSystem dock and drop it in the “Texture” property in the Inspector.

However, rather than this specific task, you need to focus on learning how the engine works in general, which would make this question easy to know the answer to. I highly recommend starting here: Introduction to Godot’s Editor and going through the entire “Step by step” section. There are a lot of fundamentals that you’ll need covered in there.
