Day Night Cycle changes

Post by Hutch » Mon Jun 12, 2017 5:40 pm

Hi

I am looking to change the ratio of the day / night cycle so that the day remains longer but at night the time goes quicker. I remember this was a feature in the past however i cannot find the option. I have been reading online that i need access to the serverconfig.xml which i think you have renamed to pingperfect.xml but i cannot edit it with the text editor, only the configuration editor. Is there a way to change this? Even an in game command?

Thanks
Hutch

You can change that in the config file,
Day Length = how long 24 hours (a full day/night cycle) is in the game
Day Light Length = how many of those hours are day light

You are correct however you do not understand my question.

I have set the day length to 125 minutes (a full day in game takes 125 minutes to pass)
I have set the day length to 18 (18 hours of a full day are day light, between 10pm and 4am). I do not believe I can make this value any larger.

What i mean in my question is whether it is possible to make the night time hours move faster and still have the long day time.

Thanks
Hutch

Try setting the day light length to 20 hours instead.

Sorry to Necro this, but How long can you make a 24 hour cycle? I do 120 min a cycle what is the max and have it still work normal?

1000 is the highest value the editor will allow.
