How do I create an "infinite loop for" with dynamic typing

I would like to know how I can create an infinite FOR loop to instantiate every so long a missile for an indefinite time

Infinite loops are bad. Using a timer is saver.

See for some scenario’s (code or GUI)

Based on new comment (below) we will use yield().

var build_missiles :bool = false
var build_missile_every_second :float = 0.5

func do_build():
    while build_missiles:
        yield(gettree().createtimer(build_missile_every_second), "timeout")

func start_missiles():
     build_missiles = true

func stop_missiles():
     build_missiles = false

Guess you have body_entered/exited or similar event which calls start/stop_missiles.

I’m not looking for a timer, I’m looking for the syntax to create a loop to indefinitely instantiate a missile every so long when an object enters an area

So it is not an infinite loop :slight_smile: I’ll change my answer then using yield
