Hey guys,

Hopefully, someone will be able to help me out. So right now I have a Sprite with the customized beard (beard is being represented as Sprite inside of Sprite, from this tutorial - ). The player can select one out of 3 options. I would like to present the Sprite that the player has selected with the specific beard in a different scene. I will leave a code that I have right now. Thanks and have a good day.

The right answer probably depends on the details of your project. Without knowing more, one way to do it would be:

  • Create a Singleton script to maintain global game state
  • Add a variable to that script to store your selected beard information
  • Once the beard has been selected, store it in the singleton script
  • Change scenes
  • In the new scene, retrieve the stored beard value from the singleton script

This is a very frequent question which keeps getting asked in various ways. Here is another one with some info about singletons: Is it possible to make a variable that keep's the value assigned to it across different scenes? - Archive - Godot Forum
