Britannian Date Calculator

    Anyone know of how to calculate the Britannian date from a given real life date?

    I know there's a readout on the main page of stratics, but I want to know eg: what the brit date was on the day I started playing, or for a particular event etc. Just wondering if there's a calculator somewhere that would make things easier, or at least an algorithm I could use.

    Also, could that main page readout be added to a forum signature or fansite somehow?

    Britannian date: Oct 44, 366

    Here are some facts relating to time in Ultima Online:

    * Time in Britannia passes quickly compared to our Earth time.
    * In 2 Earth hours an entire Britannian day will have passed.
    * Twelve Britannian days makes one Earth day.
    * Just as on Earth, a Britannian year has twelve months.
    * Each Britannian month, however, consists of 73 days.
    * This makes a Britannian year last 876 Britannian days, which is 73 Earth days.
    * One Earth year equals five Britannian years.
    * The release date of Ultima Online was in the Britannian year 289.

    As one of my old mentors used to say, "that's a lot of wasted creative energy". Fortunately he was talking about gaming rather than my design work.. [​IMG]

    For the curious, I made this late last year. It wasn't perfect (it still isn't) but I had done it in such a way that it would 'go out of date'. I left it and moved on.

    When I saw Fink's post I thought I'd fix it (it was well and truly out of date) so that it wouldn't have that problem anymore and if I wanted to, I could forget about it and still leave it functioning if others wanted to use it.

    If others want to use it, this is what Fink was talking about. UO Clock a misnomer for the time being but for how long...

    Im thinking of the 10 years UO has been live, i would have spend ATLEAST 2 years of my last 10 years playing UO. Okay this isn't good, i need to move on!
