func swap_slots(i,j):

var slot1 = heroes[i].get_parent()
var slot2 = heroes[j].get_parent()



I’m making a turn-based game similar to darkest dungeon, where the heroes can change the slot they’re in during battle.

the slot transition works, they do go to different parents (slots), but in-game the heroes just stay in the same place. I want them to swap places in-game, not just in the node tree. any help would be much appreciated.

You need to reposition them manually.
Normally child node is teleported to parent on ready. But ready isn’t called second time after removing and adding again.

heroes[i].global_position = slot2.global_position

and so on

You can manually just make a call to _ready() or use _request_ready() for Node to call _ready() again when the node is added to the scene tree.
