I'm making a puzzle game and I need two pieces that look like they fit together (like a DVI port and DVI plug). I want them to be two separate scenes because I want to place and animate them separately.

What's a good way to set this up to make it easy to edit them and keep their shapes in sync?


1 Answer 1

  1. Put each half in its own scene (A and B).
  2. Place both in a scene that's just for editing them (E). This is a normal scene that you don't spawn in gameplay.
  3. Edit them in scene E.
  4. On the instances of A and B:
    1. "Make Local".
      • This severs the relationship to the saved scene.
    2. "Save Branch as Scene" and overwrite original.
      • This recreates the relationship to the saved scene and updates the scene file.

    \$\begingroup\$ To be clear, it is called "Make Local" in Godot 4 too. As far as I can tell "Discard Instancing" was renamed to "Make Local" in Godot 3.1. Addendum: this is the pull request for the rename github.com/godotengine/godot/pull/19729 \$\endgroup\$
