    Does anybody know how many networked users are supported by Unity before you have to buy a networking package such as Raknet?

    Unity uses raknet

    The number of users highly depends on your traffic and the hosting players upstream.

    Generally in a normal environment its something between 16 and 96 / 128

    The most I have seen on a server is about 50 people. But that was just in a duel lobby (essentially a chat room with some RPC messages going back and forth).

    CPU bandwidth usage were very low, I am sure it could have gone much higher in that type of a situation.

    I am looking to allow groups of several palyers to talk to each other and update their environment (very simple changes). Do you think it would be possible to have that many RPC messages going between them?

    Any idea what the turn-around time for an RPC message is?
