Title: Is There A Live Realm Time Module?
Post by: TGTarheel on May 30, 2018, 10:33:06 PM
Can't find one if there is.

I got the live New Dar Bar, and I found Aeolus' Live Server Time...but I'd like a live Realm Time thing.

Unfortunately I found nothing in a search here.  Except what I just mentioned above.

You know....The Current Time in Degolburg is 5:42 PM -0 for example.

It bears no relevance to the actual time...it is the time on your game.

You're welcome to create one. Improbable Island has one.

It'd be an extremely rapid timer, though. Say you used 24 game days per RL day (1 hour game days); then 1 "game minute" = 2.5 RL seconds. What use would that be? An RP that takes an hour in RL would accordingly take 1 "game day", but the RP'ers may have only meant to be in the span of a few minutes.

Well, on my site, the game days are three RL hours long each.  It would be intended to be on my front page.  The main reason for this is that it looks weird to have a live newday counter on the home page while the realm time remains static.  So, in my case, with three-hour game "days" - eight game days in a real-time day, 1 game "minute" would be 7.5 seconds.  Thus, I'd likely program mine to increment every two game minutes....or every fifteen seconds.
