Comments

Very useful function - great for giving a "campaign" feel to a running battle.

Try this in your init.sqs file:


 #loop
 skiptime 0.00333
 ~0.1
 goto "loop"


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
