I want to “user://” to create a new directory. I see document: link

I can’t find a method that would create a new directory. If possible, please show a minimal code example.

func _ready():
	var dir ="user://")

It works.

Not working for me. As is should make a sad directory in user://

For anyone finding this in Godot 4.0

var dir_access ="user://")
dir_access.make_dir("New Folder")

or, even simpler

DirAccess.make_dir_absolute("user://New Folder/")

Hi there. When I try to use
I get an error saying:

Line 13:Native class “DirAccess” cannot be constructed as it is abstract.Line 13:Static function “new()” not found in base “DirAccess”.

I’m guessing the new() call was once necessary, but it isn’t anymore. It should look like this:

var dir ="user://")
dir.make_dir("New Folder")
