Run On Server vs. Has Authority? (and more)
I'm creating a pretty simple pickup system and have a few questions about it. Shall we?
Beforehand I must say I REALLY watched these videos and even though they're good, these certain things weren't clarified enough to me. In practice, these concepts just messed up in my mind.
Finally, pardon me if these questions are somehow duplicated.
There will be many times you will need SwitchHasAuthority, though. Most built-in functions don't assume they run on the server (i.e. BeginPlay, Tick, overlap events). Like on BeginPlay you may need to initialize a variable so you'd do a switch and the server would set and use the variable while the client would get and use the variable.
Hope that helps.
