QOL Suggestion: Make Station Time Consistent Across Rounds (Titled edited)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

So, the dates on all forms, PDAs, etc. adhere to IRL dates, with about 450 years tagged on. I think it would make sense to keep station time consistent across rounds, rather than have it randomized (at least that's what it appears is currently going on? don't really know) each round. I'm imagining this being fairly easy and straightforward in my head, but I'm also very sleep-deprived atm so maybe I'm being dumb.

 

I think this would help some characters who "stay during transfer" RP that they're working a shift longer than 2 hours. Which, for me personally, is something I do quite often.

 

Lmk what you think, or if I'm being dumb. Cool, thanks

So you want 5am in Chicago, to be 5am on station?

Currently, in our setting there is Galactic Standard Time. GST is based on earth's Central Standard Time, Chicago. Whatever time it is in Chicago, it is the time in the whole galaxy. This is also the time zone that the server is hosted in.

How does this impact IRL time zones? What time zone would we go with? Chicago again?

The idea is less so about which time zone to choose, and more that the time from the last shift continues on to the starting time of the next shift. I am suggesting we use UTC, Coordinated Universal Time (Zulu Time) as that is what is most likely used on the ISS. 

Basically, I just really like continuity. So when I stay on the shift after transfer and then spawn in my office for the next shift, the time should line up, not be like..10 hours different, on the same day in game.

Essentially don't randomise the time is the suggestion?

 

I agree BUT that will mean some times zones always play at night and visa versa. I'd argue that this a cool thing. Night shift boyes represent.

This. Probably could've worded it a bit better. I was very sleep deprived when I wrote this.
