Combining UserMessages

Let’s say I have three shorts I need to send fairly often.

Would it be better to put try to combine them into one usermessage by putting them in a vector (which turns them all into floats), do something like having one a short, one a longr, and one a float, or just send three separate usermessages sending them all separately as shorts?

Basically, is it better to send each variable as the smallest possible in it’s own usermessage or try to combine them when possible?

Ideally you’d send them as the smallest possible datatype in reasonably sized batches (Possibly all the values you have to sent currently, checked every n seconds or so?)

I think that’d be a good solution. However, I’m no networking or Lua expert.

You’ll see no improvement in speed as they already are packed when they are sent.
