Does the NetworkView send Child positions as well?

    if I attach a networkview component to "John Doe", who is a rigged model, does it send the position of his bones across the network?

    If so, then why would you need to be able to send animations across the network?

    If the bones are already moving wouldnt the mesh be moving with them?

    And since his camera and sword are child objects, does it send that across the network as well?

    No, that would eat up a TON of bandwidth and make lag shoot through the roof.

    By and large, if you're unsure whether a NetworkView sends something, the answer is usually going to be "only if you tell it to".
