Join Michael House for an in-depth discussion in this video Synchronizing object transforms, part of Advanced Unity: 3D Game Programming.
…In this video I'm going to teach you…how to create and synchronize objects over the network.…We'll start with synchronizing their transforms.…This means that all objects will maintain the same…position, rotation and scale on each of the connected clients.…This is a fundamental for network games.…Every network game is going to have…some kind of synchronized movement between clients.…Either seeing another character running around in an FPS or…seeing an ally's tanks on the move in an RTS.…Unity provides some built-in functionality for synchronizing state, and…we've seen this briefly with the network view component.…
I'll also show you how we can create…our own synchronization code for more advanced customization.…Let's take a look at some code.…Here I have a network object creator that's going to…be responsible for demoing our two examples of creating network objects.…The first being with network.instantiate which is the built…in Unity way of instantiating objects over the network.…This method is going to take a game object, a…

Q: In the Chapter 3 file EntityLoader.cs, I get an error: DirectoryNotFoundException: Directory 'Assets\' not found. Removing the backslash after 'Assets' fixes it, but then I run into a different error. How do I fix this?
Q: What version of Unity does this course cover?
A: This course requires Unity 4.5.5. The newer versions of Unity have done away with the GUI system used in this course, so the interfaces included for many of the scenes will not work with 4.6 and higher. You can download Unity 4.5.5 at http://unity3d.com/get-unity/download/archive.
Q: The game object in the first chapter's Mouse Input Raycasting sample doesn't appear to follow the mouse. What's wrong?
A: Please enable the Box Collider component (by activating the checkbox next to the component name) on the game object. This is not explicitly mentioned in the video, but it will ensure the raycasts collide with the game object.
