Re: Two Questions of "Day and Night"

The best would be if the day night cycles were 23 or 25 hours. This would give the game world a realistic feeling, but would mean that over the course of about 2 weeks, would be completely flipped, and after another 2 weeks would return to normal. Any day night cycles such as 6/8/12 is going to cause every area (assuming its hemisphere based so that half the world is light and half is dark) to always be in the same 4/3/2 times of the day at the same time every day. If you work a very rigid schedule, and you really like X continent, if we have a 12 hour cycle, its always going to be one of two time. But if we have a 23 hour cycle, than over the course of roughly two weeks you're going to experience every time of the the day from midnight, to dusk, to morning, to noon, to evening back to midnight.

There was a another thread about day night cycle and a lot of people seemed to be in favor of super super super short, 1-2 hour cycles which I think is absolutely ridiculous and absurd. It should not be possible to experience 4 days worth of day/night in the course of a battle.
