So I having this error "Division By Zero in operator '%'", my intention is to get the quantity of children nodes and using them as a parameter to randi

extends Node
func create_meteor(value):
    return get_children()[value].duplicate()
func random_meteor():
    return get_children()[randi()%get_children().size()].duplicate()
in Engine by (15 points)

It's implying that get_children().size() is equal to 0. Does this node have children attached?

thank you for, your reply

Try checking the stack trace when you receive the error, it might point you to where the random_meteor() function is being called where get_children().size() is returning 0.
Are you instancing this scene via code in another scene at all? If you are, you should make sure that random_meteor() is called after you add the scene to the tree (via add_child() in the other script). I'm not 100% sure but that's where I would look next.
