I've been trying to learn godot by myself, recently I tried to connect a shader in a tile map to another node but I'm still having trouble. Anyway, I don't know what recent change has caused this, but now whenever I try to play my scene, the console spits out repeating errors and Godot crashes. Can someone tell me what it means?

The error reads: Can't use get_node() with absolute paths from outside the active scene tree.

Is strange, looks like the scene got corrupted for some reason (maybe a tool/plugin?), look at the scene file with a text editor to find references of that absolute path mentioned there.

From what the Console says. You need to load the resource Your GDScript file locally instead of just using getnode(). Add gettree()

Turns out that within my script-less tilemap was a tileset which had a script attached to it which didn't exist. Even trying to open this script from the inspector crashed Godot. Not sure how this happened, maybe a bug, but clearing the script field has made my scene run as normal again.
