Tweaking day/night cycle.

Postby Gobbo » Sat Aug 30, 2014 6:11 am

I'm in an unfortunate situation right now where the only times I can play in the morning at night are right in the middle of IG night which is very bad for me and my character.

I was wondering if it is possible to adjust the day night cycle so that some days the nights and days are reversed so when I log in to my playtimes I am not in darkness? I'm sure I'm not the only sufferer of this.

They days and nights actually get longer and shorter from season to season. It probably sucks now, but when summer rocks around and the days get longer it might work itself out.

Plus, what about all the people who can only play certain times, but those times happen to fall in the day? Suddenly they'd be the ones whose playtimes only fell during night, and this thread would crop up infinitely.

We could pick a time multiplier that didn't divide evenly into twenty-four. I think some people like having predictable-ish dawns for ooc mini-rpt/patrol scheduling purposes, though.

ETA: Is timeconvert working right now?

Really, this.
It's going to be near-impossible to plan combat RPTs a few days in advance for a specific time of day if it shifts unevenly.

Also, because dawn is at a specific time every day, I can schedule my RL errands and stuff around 2PM my time, 8 PM my time, 2 AM my time, etc.

Timeconvert is so not working in any reasonable function, from what I can tell.
But I could be using it wrong.

This is what I was trying to mean. Some days I can log in at my usual time and it will be night and other times its day. This is preferred over 100% night.
