Obsolete public static bool AddPlayerForConnection(NetworkConnection conn, GameObject player, short playerControllerId);


connConnection which is adding the player.
playerPlayer object spawned for the player.
playerControllerIdThe player controller ID number as specified by client.


bool True if player was added.


When an AddPlayer message handler has received a request from a player, the server calls this to associate the player object with the connection.

When a player is added for a connection, the client for that connection is made ready automatically. The player object is automatically spawned, so you do not need to call NetworkServer.Spawn for that object. This function is used for "adding" a player, not for "replacing" the player on a connection. If there is already a player on this playerControllerId for this connection, this will fail.

using UnityEngine;
using UnityEngine.Networking;

class MyServer : MonoBehaviour { public GameObject playerPrefab;

void Start() { NetworkServer.RegisterHandler(MsgType.AddPlayer, OnAddPlayerMessage); }

void OnAddPlayerMessage(NetworkMessage netMsg) { GameObject thePlayer = (GameObject)Instantiate(playerPrefab,, Quaternion.identity);

// This spawns the new player on all clients NetworkServer.AddPlayerForConnection(conn, thePlayer, 0); } }
