So I have the name plates and floating text when people heal or take damage. Everything is working correctly except for one problem.
Well the issue is that while it SEEMS like its a simple task, I cant quite decide what is the best way to make it so these floating numbers and name plates only render when you are within a certain distance. I also for the life of me cant quite figure out why I am unable to hide my OWN name plate over my own character.
I have Owner no see checked which should at least prevent me from seeing my own name plate but that isn’t working. Also any attempt to hide or show someones name plate seems to end up being replicated even if its a client side only action. This means one person can stand off on a corner of the map and watch as the other player toggles all of the name plates on and off.
So what is the best way to handle this? Imagine large open outdoor environments.
I know the problem is probably fairly simple, I just cant seem to settle on something I am happy with.
