I saved some time in a bucket for later.
When I was in the US Navy on submarines, when underway we were effectively on an 18 hour day. You'd have 6 hours on watch, 6 hours for maintenance and/or relaxation and 6 hours sleep.
What I don't understand is why some people are so adamantly opposed to giving people the choice to change the timezone on their ship's display and/or add another display. World of Warcraft lets you choose server time or local time. My phone has 3 time zones displayed on the home screen.
I'm sure this has been asked before, but it's proving hard to find any threads...
In the top right corner of the UI is the time. At this moment, it reads 2:03. However, the actual time where I am is 10:03. Is it possible to make the UI display the actual time?
I have a clock set to GMT/Z at my desk.It’s truly dreadful. I live in GMT +8. When looking at the ship’s clock and wanting to know my local time, I must go through the excruciating anguish of adding eight. I wish I had paid more attention in maths class at school.
I've had to deal with this in Traveller. The players always revert to ship time- which in most settings is the equivalent of GMT/UCT/Z.I wish!
They'd have to come up with a reasonable way to manage 36 hour clocks. Having day and night rotate through your day differently day by day would be a nightmare.
Lucky you. When I was enlisted we worked until the airplanes were fixed. So 18-20 work shifts were common (forty years ago).When I was in the US Navy on submarines, when underway we were effectively on an 18 hour day.
