Pawn rotation replication is inconsistently applied, sometimes never replicating at all
I'm doing a very infrequent rotation, just one time at the start when the player shoots at a "begin play" sign. The rest of the time the player never rotates.
I have replication turned on on the player's pawn. When a spectator joins, he sometimes doesn't get notified of the single rotation, and the game never updates him again. Is this by design (e.g. does it assume something like a first person shooter, where the player will be constantly rotating and there for send lots of other rotation events, so it doesn't matter if a single one is missed)? Is it in the documentation anywhere?
Late joining spectators seem to get the rotation correctly, but if a spectator has joined before the player has shot "begin play" and triggered the rotation (which is triggered on the authority), there seems to be a random chance the spectator won't see the rotation happen.
Right now I'm looking at adding a timer that will every once in a while manually send out the rotation of the pawn to any spectators. This feels wrong, is there a better way?
