Weather Update!

Daynight system:

Ofcourse we've made several updates in the past period, one of them is merging the daynight system with the calender and weather system. Here is a snapshot of the calender opened. When you mouse over the red bar on the daynight gui the calender will slide out of it (make the bar bigger also) and well.. you'll see the weather and events (events aren't displayed yet).



If you have any suggestions you can always ask to have stuff added or optimized (or deleted) in it and I'll do my best to make it as nice as possible, just as the other stuff on the server.

Seems rather pointless, unless the weather has some actual impact on what you can do.

Maybe it has an effect on farming? I see that the abbreviation for the month is "Aut". Or is that the season? Also I noticed that the 'month' has 47 days in it. Could you post an example of what an complete Bomy Island year would look like on a calender?

On a related note: The Day/Night GUI is HUGE!

P.S. Why is it so bright outside at 1:14AM?

I like it, it should show more than just the weather though. I'd like it if you could add notes on to the calander for specific days such as paying rent if they own a house or something.

The weather will affect many things, it will affect farming (as mentioned below in haunter's message) for example, like.. farming will go faster if it rains but if it rained for 3 days it'll go "wrong" (drowned plants or so hehe, I just gotta work that out). Just wait and see.

"Aut" stands for Autumn, so it are seasons, yes. A season has about 47 days.
In one real year for us (real people) there will be two years on Bomy Island.
From day 0 - 46 it's Spring, from day 46 - 91 its Summer, from day 91 - 137 its Autumn and last but not least, Winter from day 137 - 182.

Oh and here is a snap of how the gui normally is (you can also hide it as in: toggle the quick inventory with the daynight gui).



Like it better now?
Oh and it's so bright outside because I didn't enable the daynight effects yet (am making them).

Thanks, and yes I indeed had in mind to show important things like paying rent. I've also got in mind to make it like.. the players can schedule their own seasons (what they wanna do on what day, or just leave "notes").

It's still pretty large considering it's only showing the date, time and weather.

I don't like how it doesn't have seasons though... I mean one day the sun is blazing and the next it's snowing!

Well I just randomly created some weather set hehe.. ofcourse we'll "plan" better weather once everything works, this was just for testing the drawing and setting of the weather.

Make sure you make a disabled feature for it. Cool idea but some people might not want that at the top of their screen.

Very cool, but as said before, it is extremely large, considering it doesn't show anything else than the weather.

Very nice looking. What I would suggest is make a half circle with a red outline such as the GUI above the clock, and in the half circle include the smaller symbols that show up once the calendars brought up. The only time I want to see that big cloud is when it's floating above me. ;D
