static var time : double


Get the current network time (seconds).

This can, for example, be used to compare with the time returned in NetworkMessageInfo. The example script needs to be attached to an object with a network view and have the network view observe the script. It measures the time it took to send a message which synchronizes the X postion value of the objects transform.

var something : float;
var transitTime: double;
function OnSerializeNetworkView (stream : BitStream,
info : NetworkMessageInfo) {
var horizontalInput : float = 0.0;
if (stream.isWriting) {
// Sending
horizontalInput = transform.position.x;
stream.Serialize (horizontalInput);
} else {
// Receiving
transitTime = Network.time - info.timestamp;
stream.Serialize (horizontalInput);
something = horizontalInput;

function OnGUI() {
GUILayout.Label("Last transmission time: "+ transitTime);
