Why none of Godot's tutorials are compatible with the Godot?


I’m really confused. None of Godot’s tutorials are compatible with the Godot.

For example on this page:

It says to create a texture node, but there isn’t any texture in the node window:

You can see it here:

what is the problem? which one should I select?


Your Godot version appears to be very outdated. You’re using 3.1.2, but the latest version as of writing is 3.5.3. Grab the latest 3.x version from Download Godot 3 - Godot Engine :slight_smile:

Also, the video is likely referring to the creation of a TextureRect node. There is no “Texture” node to speak of in Godot.

Did you follow the tutorial that you linked?

There is no Texture node. The tutorial is talking about creating a TextureRect node and assigning a texture to it (located in the inspector).

But even there isn’t ant textureRect node!

There is. I just downloaded Godot 3.1.2 (same as your version) and if I search for TextureRect I can see it.

Yes, you are right.
What is the meaning of node in Godot?
In other engines, there isn’t such a word!

The documentation is your friend. When in doubt always search there first.

Thanks, it sounds like nodes are our game members.
