What I'm trying to achieve is to have the player to launch let's say a simple rigid body sphere with a mouse click and upon launching a new instance the previous one gets removed from the scene so that there is always a single sphere instance in the scene.
Right now I already have the launching part working, however I cannot figure out how to despawn the previously created instance from the scene, so I have them all just accumulating in the scene.
This is my current function to create and impulse launch the sphere, only need to figure out how to remove the previously created instance (obviously the "queue_free" line doesn't really work having it in the same function, so I commented it out:
if Input.is_action_just_pressed("mouse1") and enableLaunching:
var p = projectile.instance()
rayCastPos = get_global_transform().origin
p.global_transform.origin = Vector3(rayCastPos)
