    I'm having some issues with spawning my players into the scene at the start of a match.

    I'm testing in a room with two users.

    For some reason each player is spawning twice (i'm guessing this is because it's spawning a prefab for the amount of clients in the room for each player). I'm not sure why this is. I know I'm using a for loop to cycle through but I've only assigned the RPC call to the player currently being targeted in the loop.

    I also assign a style to each player including a colour, a pattern and an outfit. This seems to be being applied to each instance of the prefabs spawned for the local player, but then the networked player has nothing applied and spawns as the basic prefab.

    I've attached a photo for you to see what I mean better.
