Notes

Very useful function - great for giving a "campaign" feel to a running battle. Try this in your init.sqs file: while(true) do { skiptime 0.00333 ~0.1 } This will make each day pass in around 12 minutes - great fun watching sunsets and the night sky! Not to be confused with accTime. A useful piece of code that will enable the mission to skip forward to any given time, irrespective of what time it happens to be in the mission is: skipTime (_timeToSkipTo - daytime + 24 ) % 24 See also: a % b
