Description

Variables are not being replicated when they are set on the server to be the same value as the default value of the property.

For example, if a float is created and defaulted to 20, and then set to 100 in the construction script, attempting to reset it to 20 at a later date will not replicate the change to the client. Using any other value than the default works as expected.

Steps to Reproduce
  1. Open the attached project
  2. Press 4 to set TestVar to 20 (it is initially changed in value in the construction script, to 100)
  3. Press 2 to print the value of TestVar on the Client

Result: TestVar is still set to 100 on the client

Expected: TestVar would be set to 20, as the change in value would have been replicated
