Comments

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 a % b


MP Note:

This command only has local effect. So only use this command in scripts which are running on all clients.
