    Hi, i tried to instantiate my player object using ClientScene.AddPlayer and make necessary change in OnServerAddPlayer.

    The problem is when i need to send my player parameter to other client using [Command] and [ClientRpc], ClientRpc did not executed.
    This some snippet of my player networkbehavior
    Code (CSharp):
    1.     public override void OnStartLocalPlayer() {
    2.         if (hasAuthority)
    3.             CmdCreateChar();
    4.     }
    6.     [Command]
    7.     void CmdCreateChar()
    8.     {
    9.         print("client command me to execute this");
    10.         RpcCreateChar();
    11.     }
    13.     [ClientRpc] //never called
    14.     void RpcCreateChar()
    15.     {
    16.         print("Server send this rpc to execute on all client");
    17.     }
    Any hint whats wrong?

    Hmm, have you tried using the OnStartClient override instead of OnStartLocalPlayer? The documentation isn't very clear here but based on the naming of the OnStart* methods of a NetworkBehaviour script, I would assume that OnStartLocalPlayer is used in more unique scenarios, where as OnStartClient will be called when the object is network-ready in the client.

    Not sure if this will help but hopefully it does!
