Day and night
« on: December 29, 2014, 08:42:45 AM »
Lets be honest, time of a day on the servers between restarts is not ideal. Im ok with night, but damn sun during evening and morning, that blinds you, killing me. So that is what I suggest.
1. Make it full 24h cycle of server time. If it's not possible to remember time before restart, just set server time at each restart at some constant value, f.e 12:00 at restarts during real daytime and 00:00 during real nighttime.
2. We have 2 servers now, right? So, let it be constant day on first server and constant night on second server.

I think one of these options will be much better than what we have now.
Thanks.

Hmmmm, the l ast days we have round about 75 players at the evenings  on the servers and at the moment we dont see players decreasing. So something must have been done right. It is not my decision, but we don't have enough data collected to decide if it is a good thing or not. What I know is that we have now about 1900 members and 3 complaining about the actual day night cycle on both servers... so, what would you think?

You can place a poll and leave it for a week and see what people think. For me right now it's ok. I enjoyed the early hours of the morning the other day in OldSchool II. Nice initiative!

so, what would you think?

I think that for the rest players it doesnt matter, so they are not complaining. So may be it's ok to change it for that 3 players (but Im sure there are more, I personaly know them), and others still will not care about it.
And Im sure it is so, because it is not a secret that many peoples here playing as "peacekeepers", as you call it, they doesn't look for action. So for them current time selection may be ok and they will not complain.
What about player decreasing? Hmmm, I dont like it but still playing here, so what?

There are not so many peacekeepers. The "official" bandit gangs combined are like 4 times more than the current active peacekeepers.

It is important that you guys enjoy yourself playing on Oldschool. People leaving because of light conditions is no good.

Is time compression still not a thing in standalone? That would be the best option if possible.

Hey guys,

Just to start off me and 2 other guys (Kromagnon and Dastan) recently whitelisted and started playing on your server and its brilliant.

I've just read through this thread and wanted to clarify the current day/night cycle setup. From what I have read am i right in assuming that when Oldschool I restarts it goes to 14:00 servertime? If so we're happy with that and I've voted on the poll.

I only ask as my group likes to play at night (or likes to play day and then slowly transition to night) and today at 00:15 CET just as it got dark the server reset and went back to day. Was it an unscheduled restart?

Yes, it was. Not long after the first restart the regular restart took place.

I dont know, why you have said that in my topic. If you will read it more carefully , you will see, that I dont hate the night, but Im against playing half of the time at morning or evening with sun shining directly into my eyes.
