I've noticed most of the time I'm on during the week it's usually night time. This doesn't bother me that much (we own the night), but I've noticed other players not liking the current day/night cycle in the pvp server. I think a good balance to the day/night cycle is to have the voting system in place. It's better than changing the cycle all together because then it will probably upset the other players who play when it's day time. Could we by any chance get the day/night voting system in place on the pvp server?

I'm not a huge fan of the voting system. How about I add time acceleration to the server and we'll see how everyone likes it. We have time acceleration on the PVE server at a 5x multiplier and most everyone seems to enjoy it. If it turns out to be not enough, I can add the voting system later but I would like to try to avoid it.

Sounds good to me as I’ve never experienced the acceleration system. I want to say I remember you having the voting system in a while ago but it was causing some server issues hence the reason why it’s not in here anymore.

Time acceleration has been implemented. Let me know what you all think.

Seems I still only get to play 1/3 of the 3 hours .... in actual daylight.
I'm Dog of War , in the game. I have a pretty big group that I brought along with me. We all feel the same way. even those that frequent this sever want more daylight

I just wished that day time lasted a little longer.. it seems like the day to night ratio is heavily more in night time favor. Maybe that has to do with it being winter time? Idk..

Correct. The seasons do affect the amount of daylight. I think I might set the in game date to today's date so that we skip the server ahead into spring.
