Hi there,

Please, let me know if I am wrong: assuming all resources below exist and they define only the their inheritage as suggested by their name:

extends Node2D

onready var Map =  preload("res://").new()
onready var Player = preload("res://").new()

is it the same (or equivalent) as adding a node via GUI to the node which the script above is attached to?

No. You create two Nodes, but without adding them to the tree. You need to add a couple of add_child() in your _ready().
