You know what to do.
SE2's ingame clock will be moved backwards by 2 hours at 15:00 restart today.
How long is the estimated downtime?
my thoughts on these changes...
test 1 hour extension, not 2
thinks its perfect, se1 3dp change is also very cool
appreciate the changes
now that I first tried out the new day/night cycle i think the extension shouldnt be 2 hours but only 1... at 11:30 pm it was still very bright with beautiful blue sky
I voted for "its fine how it is", cause:
Normally the server was full from ~ 6pm till midnight (my timezone)
I would say this was perfect, you had daylight till ~9pm and starting getting dark after the restart. So it was nearly the middle from the filled server when the daylight changed.
Now you have 5 hours daylight and 1 hour "darkness" on the full server, if you prefer to play at night you only have a few players left...
Pls change 1 hour more daylight max, there are not that few players that prefer to play at night. But now its nearly impossible if you have to stand up next morning.
Well some squads, mine for example, never usually log in before 6PM restart... 6PM - 8PM is usually sunset, with the god awful glare, and after that it's just grey. I don't mind night time but as it was before I only got glare hours + grey hours every day, will be nice to get some daytime.
But yeah 1 hour probably would've been better but still good as it is now.
When we came back to dayzero the night time was a turnoff as we only get to play in the evenings and night... Meaning it's allways dark. I think this is a barrier to entry for a lot of people
So SE2 will be at UTC-4 then instead of UTC-2 ?
anyone who voted to push back 2 hours want to change their minds or no? seems like people didn't realise that dusk starts 2 hours later, not exactly 'dark night-time'.
yeah, one hour would actually be much better. The annoying time of day with the sunglare and washed-out colors felt so dragged out this evening. Wish we could just go from full on daytime to greyzero/nighttime instantly and skip the annoying transition that no one seems to like.
yeah-o. I did just that... ambiguous vote question at least for me
Lame change Imo, now I'l never see the moon again.
Is it possible to have the server not run on realtime? If an ingame hour would be 40-50 minutes instead of 60, this would cause asynchronisation to real life times, meaning if you start the game each day at 18:00, you would play on diffrent ingame times each day.
I'm rather certain this was suggested by someone before, it seems so obvious. So maybe it can't be done :/
could be fun, but then again people might get annoyed when they finally log in to find a daytime they dont like to play in..
i voted its fine how it is, but im not bothered at all, i like both day and night and will play no matter the weather
Yes, please. Any time and I'd be satisfied. I just want to be able to see what I'm doing when I play.
