    Are there any other ways than unity's built-in system?

    The easiest way to create your own networking solution would be to build a higher level API on top of Unity's included low level API (LLAPI). There's several threads and some documentation on using the LLAPI.

    Oh, my bad, he has several other ones as well though that are fully completed. He is always in Discord as well and helps out with whatever you need. One of the videos is nearly 2 hours long and I believe does a start to finish.

    You could also just write your own. It’s just a buffered udp layer. Hell, you could use a VOIP engine to do networking.
