I am creating a multiplayer game where players join a lobby. When a player joins, I want a random Animated Sprite from a list to become their sprite.

I have a parent node I’m calling Party. Could I preload all the sprites in that node and then assign them to players as they join? I’m not sure the best way to go about this.

simplest solution that come to my mind: move the sprite around the game tree using


I like this idea. I think I could preload the sprites as PackedScenes and then add them as children to the Player nodes when the players join.
