Sounds like you need collision. Use RigidBody2D or KinematicBody2D.

I used KinematicBody2D body but still its overlapping. do i have make any changes ?


i have two object in one scene, but still this two object overlapping.
Any idea??

With KinematicBody2D you have to call move_and_slide or move_and_collide for the collision to work. Or you can just use RigidBody2D.

What about the use of collision layers and masks?
You can set a layer for stones and remove the mask for stone layer.

It will work if you do not want to have any collision among stones.
