What I want is to run a function the very first time the user starts the game.

I want to create a folder structure in user:// I can use later when I save the game and I figured out how to but I dont want to do that every time the game starts. What is the cleanest solution to run a function only the very first time?

ok! I don't know exactly how but it can help

func _ready():
    var file =
    if file.file_exists("user://###"):
        #create your file or folder here

Directory.dir_exists ( *String* path ) -> *bool*

Returns whether the target directory exists. The argument can be relative to the current directory, or an absolute path.

You can use this function to check whether the folder structure has already been created.
