hi i am currently making a simulation game involving creatures and i have this KinematicBody2D with the “Sight” Area2D attached and i have a piece of fruit is there anyway i can get the position of the fruit once it enters the area ( i am using on_body_entered) without it telling me via a file or something because i realised that if i want to use files i would have to have a different file for every creature and piece of fruit but then i would have to send the file path in a file and then to make that file random i would have to make yet another file etc. please let me know thanks.

if you don’t know, the function OnBodyEntered gives you the body that entered, so you can tell it to set position of the body, so you type:

var position = Vector2.ZERO
if == the name of the body:
    position = body.global_position

and if you want to get several positions without creating a lot of variables, you can create an array:

var positions = []
 if == the name of the body:

would this work similarly on an instanciated object?? because fruit in this case is in a different scene entirely and will be spawned in.

sorry i should have made that clearer i my original comment.

yes, it should work.
