I cannot to figure out the following:

I’m trying to add a node2d to a position which comes from an HUD node i created.
What i’m trying to achieve is to spawn sprites in a certain predefined area on the screen (no matter where the camera moves).

What i did so far:

I created a CanvasLayer and in there a node(collisionshape2D) which i can read the position and size from and stays static in the screen.

Any help would be much appreciated!

You can send the position using signals or make the hud a singleton (autoload).

Use set_global_position and get_global_position and set directly position of the spawn object.

# inside node in hud that is on desire spawn position 
func spawn():
    # add youre code creating new instance
    # ...

This did the trick! Thank you very much!
