KI Time will be converted to UTC / Greenwich Mean Time in the next Cyan Update!

I'm happy to announce that Cyan has approved a change in the MOULa in-game KI Timing system. I might reveal this a bit prematurely but I got it confirmed in a chat with ResEng last night in the City.

We in the I.H.P. (International Hood Project) and Guild of Writers have had long discussions with Cyan regarding this and it has now been approved. Taken in concern MOULa has a great Fan Base all over Europe and especially in Russia, Cyan has agreed to this minor change to the KI Timing System. This will also make it so much easier for us to plan any events in the future!

This will in reality change nothing as such in MOULa, other than the Time shown in top right corner will be GMT. So now 18:00 KI Time will mean 13:00 Local Time in New York and 11:00 in Cyan HQ, Spokane, Washington.

I.H.P. will soon put up a Map of the Timezones in relation to the new KI Times. So... Watch this space!

Is this announcement to replace the traditional April Fool's message usually presented by Whilyam? ... :D

And it should be noted that UTC has no daylight saving time! Hurray!

Actually, it often does this after a restart anyway, unless Chogon remembers to re-set the clock :P

So Cyan is getting lazy :P. If this isn't a joke, I don't think it's a good ideas since it will mess up when events are scheduled(old timers might come at the wrong time) and Ki time is supposed to be PST for IC reasons.

planning an event. no reason to create any more confusion... )

Well you had me for a bit, though last night after I posted I though 'wouden't Cyan have said something themselfs about this".

Interestingly enough most(if not all) of my speical guests so far have been in the same timezone as me(so this makes that side of things a bit easier).

Wow, i thought this what a classic April's Fool joke. But the time in cavern really IS now GMT :shock:

As Mac said in this thread Ki time is GMT on the server by default and then they change it. Why it's programmed this way I hve no clue. I suppose while the servers have been having problems, it got reset somehow.

I wasn't near a computer when MOULa went down over the weekend, so I rebooted them from my phone (which still feels weird saying that out loud ;-) )

Anyhow, the KI time is back on standard cavern time.
