The setcellv function returns the error "Invalid type in function 'setcellv' in base 'TileMap'. Cannot convert argument 2 from Nil to int"

Here is my code:

extends Node2D

const WIDTH = 500
const HEIGHT = 500

const TILES = {
'grass': 0,
'water': 1,
'dirt': 2,
'tree': 3,
'bush': 4
}

var grasssimplexnoise
var riversimplexnoise

func ready():
randomize()
#Generate Seed
var Seed = randi()
#Create grass & bushes perlin map
grass
simplexnoise = OpenSimplexNoise.new()
grass
simplex_noise.seed = Seed

grass_simplex_noise.octaves = 4
grass_simplex_noise.period = 8
grass_simplex_noise.lacunarity = 2
grass_simplex_noise.persistence = 0.5
#Replace Tiles
_generate_world()
#Create River perlin worms
river_simplex_noise = OpenSimplexNoise.new()
river_simplex_noise.seed = Seed

river_simplex_noise.octaves = 1
river_simplex_noise.period = 1
river_simplex_noise.lacunarity = 1
river_simplex_noise.persistence = 1
#Replace Tiles
_generate_rivers()

func generateworld():
for x in WIDTH:
for y in HEIGHT:
$TileMap.setcellv(Vector2(x - WIDTH / 2, y - HEIGHT / 2), placegrassandbush(grasssimplexnoise.getnoise2d(float(x), float(y))))
$TileMap.updatebitmaskregion()

func placegrassandbush(noisesample):
if noise_sample < 0.4:
return TILES.grass
return TILES.bush

func generaterivers():
for x in WIDTH:
for y in HEIGHT:
$TileMap.setcellv(Vector2(x - WIDTH / 2, y - HEIGHT / 2), placewater(riversimplexnoise.getnoise2d(float(x), float(y))))
$TileMap.updatebitmaskregion()

func placewater(noisesample):
if noise_sample < 0.7:
return TILES.water

The grasssimplexnoise works fine but the problem lies in the riversimplexnoise

Thank you in advance

setcellv function returns the error "Invalid type in function 'setcellv' in base 'TileMap'. Cannot convert argument 2 from Nil to int"

setcellv was expecting an int. But it found NIL (an empty nothing that wasn't set) the only values you have in setcellv is a vector and an int. So the problem MUST be in placewater(riversimplexnoise.getnoise2d(float(x), float(y)))
it did not return a int.

How can placewater not return an int?
well first off, if noise_sample is > .7 It doesn't return anything, so that's a problem. if noisesample is not a number, we won't return anything. (because if it's not a number it won't be lower than .7)
right there is 2 potential problems.

you say grass is working fine. I can't help but notice that if it fails its check it always returns TILES.bush. Really I don't think you wanna split placegrassandbush and placewater in separate functions
