You use AutoLoads to have global vars. There is no other way.

You can also use ProjectSettings to create global variables of sorts, but it's not possible to make use of static typing with them.

# The value can be any Variant.
ProjectSettings.set_setting("my/custom_value", "Hello world")
# Prints "Hello world".
print(ProjectSettings.get_setting("my/custom_value"))
