Invalid set index 'position' (on base: 'null instance') with value of type 'Vector2'.

I have a problem
when creating an item in the conditions, I get errors
but when code snippets are removed, everything works without errors
here is the error in the debuggers:

  1. loading: unable to load dependency: res://prefab/item.res.
  2. __load: Failed to load resource: res://scene/world.scene. Verify that the resources have been imported by opening the project in the editor at least once.
  3. set_path: Another resource is loaded from the path ‘res://scene/world.scn’ (possibly cycling the resource).
  4. @ _process(): Condition “nc == 0” is true. Return: nullptr
  5. @ _process(): parameter “p_child” is null.
  6. Invalid specified index “position” (based on: “null instance”) with a value of type “Vector2”.
    code that causes errors:
extends Area2D

I have attached a video where I show the errors and how they are supposed to be:

thank you in advance

You shouldn’t be doing this:

var spawn = preload("res://scene/world.scn").instantiate()

That should just be load().

Or use preload() for const in the var declarations:

const spawn_tscn = preload("res://scene/world.scn")
var spawn = spawn_tscn.instantiate()

Also you must open your “world.scn” in the editor and check that for load errors. Not sure why it has “.scn” extension?

Also is “world.scn” the craft item? Because it has an odd name for a craft item.

I tried to do as they said above,
but the error is exactly the same,
here is the code that I tried:

if enter == true and player.get_child_count() == 0:
		if craft_id == 1:
			if Input.is_action_just_pressed("craft"):
				const  spawn_tscn = preload("res://prefab/tree.tscn")
				var spawn = spawn_tscn.instantiate()
				spawn.position = player.global_position

I was just looking at which nodes it can spawning

BOX_Milk | 2023-03-10 16:34

You can’t have const inside a function.

It’s likely you are loading scenes that are broken if it doesn’t error before const

I recommend taking a step back and reading the GDScript definition docs and some tutorials, because there is too much wrong with your code.

I found a way out
it’s all about the team

var spawn = preload("res://prefab/tree.tscn")

should have been replaced with

var spawn = load("res://prefab/tree.tscn")

Someone else took the time to help you, then you rewarded yourself the best answer. Nice
