I was making a 2D game where the player has to run from a boulder that is chasing them. But whenever the player jumps the boulder also moves up so I need to only get the X coordinates of the player so that it will stay on the ground. This is the boulder code:

    extends KinematicBody2D

var nearest_player
var velocity = Vector2()
var collide

export var gravity = 9000000000000000

export var health = 5
export var speed = 1.0
export var damage = 1
export var wait_time = 0.1
var tile_size = 10

var isMove = true
var isAttack = false

func _ready():


func get_target():
    var players = []

    players += get_tree().get_nodes_in_group("player")

    if players.size() > 0:
        nearest_player = players[0]

    for player in players:
        if player.global_position.distance_to(global_position) < nearest_player.global_position.distance_to(global_position):
            nearest_player = player

func _process(delta):
    if speed != 500.0:
        speed += 0.1
    velocity.x = 0
    velocity.y += gravity
    if isMove and is_instance_valid(nearest_player):
        velocity = (nearest_player - global_position).normalized() * speed

        collide = move_and_slide(velocity)

    for i in get_slide_count():
        var collision = get_slide_collision(i)
        var collider = collision.collider
        if is_instance_valid(collider) and collider.is_in_group("player"):

    if health <= 0:

func enemy_hit(dmg):
    health -= dmg

You can do something like this

var vec = Vector2()

func find_player():
    vec = get_node("Root/tothe/PlayerSprite").position
