    Do clients always download network variables or only when trying to read it?
    Is there a way to stop specific clients from receiving some variables?

    Im new to networking and cant find any info about this.

    NetworkVariables are synchronized to all clients whenever the value changes. You cannot opt out of this behaviour.

    For any asynchroneous data exchange, eg just between client X and the server, use RPC messages.
