I have a static body parent scene that has a script with a single function in it, a sprite, and a collision poly 2D. All my prop objects inherit from that scene.
When trying to call a function from a bodyentered signal on the player, the signal fires and finds the correct prop (I can print the correct name with body.name), but the hasmethod check fails to find the function in the parent script.
So I added a print statement to the ready function of the parent static body scene, and it doesn't run. I have no idea why.
I tried using the _init() method, and that does run (and can call the custom function directly), but the _ready function does not run at all, and I cannot call the custom function from elsewhere. It's as if the script doesn't exist after init.
Am I missing something fundamental here? I feel like after a couple of years in Godot I might be losing my mind. Why on earth does the _ready method not run?
