Is this possible? And if so, do I have to code it in or is it just a few clicks?


What prevents you from adding two Sprite nodes to your scene?

In 2D, sprites are drawn in the same order in which they appear in the scene tree. So if you have this:


  • Sprite1
  • Sprite2

Then Sprite2 will be on top of Sprite1.

If Sprite1 is a child of Sprite2, you can check the Behind Parent option in the inspector for Sprite1.

Finally, if no other solution work, you can adjust the Z property.

Thanks for the answer
