New restart times and time cycle

Hello!

Today we are introducing new restart times along with improved day/night cycle system which hopefully should make the gameplay more realistic.

Restart times

The server will automatically restart at these hours (server time)

12:00

17:00

22:00

03:00

08:00

Uneven number of restarts every day will make sure that the time and night cycle below will switch throughout the week (one day 12-17 session will be daylight, the next day it will be night).

Day/Night cycle

During every restart the starting time will be changed, effectively changing the setting and time of day.

For example:

At 12:00 restart the game time will be changed to 14:00, middle of the day. When approaching the 17:00 restart the ingame time will be around 19:00 (sunset).

At 17:00 restart the game time will be changed to 00:00, midnight. When approaching the 22:00 restart the ingame time will be around 05:00 (sunrise).

These 5 hour day/night cycles should hopefully allow everyone to experience both day and night on DayZRP. The session between 08:00 and 12:00 is only 4 hours, but since it is the time we have lowest amount of players online it shouldn't break things too much. The ingame time transitions were set so that the restart change is as smooth as possible, not like it currently suddenly gets very bright every restart.

This change will effectively go live today, as the server will restart early at 17:00 instead of old 18:00.

Nice, nice nice nice nice nice NICE! I knew you would make it work!

What happens at the 08:00 - 12:00 cycle by the way? Will it be 01:00 to 05:00 and 13:00 to 17:00?

Yeah, pretty much.

Thanks for this Rolle! I'm going to love having more dark hours. It's much easier to move past zombies!
