Introduction

     This plugin adds a real time system to your game. Assigned variables
will automatically update based on values detected from the game client's
NodeJS Date function. This effectively gives you the ability to create
events that trigger off real time changes as long as you set up the
variables and switches to do so.

Setup Instructions


1. Open up the Plugin Parameters.
2. Assign all the Switch and Variable parameters to switches and variables.
3. Set up the tint values for each hour.
4. For maps you want there to be tinting on, insert <Real Time Tint> in the
   map's notebox.
5. Setup vocabulary settings to meet your game's standards.

Usage Instructions

These variables can be used in conditional branches, event conditions, etc. to help make time-dependent effects.

These plugin-assigned variables will be automatically updated each second
as long as the "Time Freeze Switch" is not on.

Year variable will return the exact year number.

Month variable will return the number represented as the current month.
- 1: January
- 2: February
- 3: March
- 4: April
- 5: May
- 6: June
- 7: July
- 8: August
- 9: September
- 10: October

Week Day variable will return the day of the week starting with Monday.
- 1: Monday
- 2: Tuesday
- 3: Wednesday
- 4: Thursday
- 5: Friday

Hours will be based on a 24 hour timer. This means:
- 0:00 will be 12 am.
- 8:00 will be 8 am.
- 12:00 will be 12 pm.
- 13:00 will be 1 pm.
- 18:00 will be 6 pm.

Warnings

     While this plugin is based on "real time", it's actually based on
whatever time the computer is using upon opening the game client. Changing
the computer's time while the game is active will not change the time, until
the game client has been closed down and restarted.
