so i have a series of boxes inside a box container
i want to give each of them one of six colors when scene loads up
here is my code

extends Node2D

var color_one = Color(255, 0, 0, 1) 
var color_two = Color(0, 255, 0, 1) 
var color_three = Color(0, 0, 255, 1) 
var color_four = Color(0, 0, 0, 1) 
var color_five = Color(255, 0, 255, 1)
var color_six = Color(255, 255, 0, 1) 

var colors_array = [color_one, color_two, color_three, color_four, color_five, color_six]

func update_colors():
	var nodes = get_node("box").get_children()
	for box in nodes:
		var current_color = colors_array[randi() % colors_array.size()]
		box.modulate = Color(current_color)
func _ready():

but strangely its generating the same colors every time!!!

You need to call randomize() to seed the rng, or you will get the same “random” sequence every time you run.

You can add it to _ready().
