If I have 2 overlapping sprites, how can I determine or detect which one is on top?

Nodes are drawn in tree-order (except for special cases such as children of YSort nodes), so lower nodes are drawn on top. In GDScript you can test this using the is_greater_than() method:

if sprite1.is_greater_than(sprite2):
    # sprite1 is on top of sprite2

Thanks, that’s exactly what I needed.
