Does replicated FText use the key or the literal text?

Pretty much what’s in the topic :slight_smile:

To my knowledge - no. It can’t really work because keys may not necessarily be the same between versions, and if you’re creating text dynamically from formatting or in code then this also wouldn’t work. I believe this is why FName’s also replicated the text data instead of the key.

FText is twice as expensive as FString to replicate IIRC, and FString is twice as expensive as FName. Honestly I can’t think of many situations where you’d want to replicate FText directly anyway.

Ok, thanks for the tip.
