Has an in-game real time clock ever been considered?

    From my experience in other games, this is a really convenient and helpful feature. On the enhanced client, I find myself constantly looking at the bottom of my mini map for the current real time on Atlantic. I know its not hard to look at a clock in the room (since I do), but its nice to be able to see the time while I'm "in the zone". A few times in other games I caught the time only because I was checking my mini map, and realized I needed to be somewhere or do something. Have the devs or playerbase ever talked about this? Have the devs ever considered implementing it?
     
  2. The Enhanced Client with Pinco's UI does have a real time clock feature.

    Like, the in-game time from wrist watches, or the real time? You must play in full screen or hide your taskbar, cause most of us handy windows users have a clock in the bottom right corner....
     
  4. Well, there is a 12/24 hour real time clock in the EC, that you can place anywhere. I like to play across two monitors with one game window, and find the clock very handy.

    I haven't tried to use Pinco's UI. I usually stick with whatever is designed by the game developers.

    I meant a real time clock that is in-game lol. I do play in full screen as personal preference.

    I've looked all over the EC and searched around for info about this but can't find a real time clock. Are you refering to Pinco's UI?
     
  6. Yes... it's an option in Pinco's.

    There is no real reason you should not try the UI... everything in it is legal, and it's a clean file used by hundreds (if not thousands) of people. Pinco makes regular updates for enhancements and bug fixes, and there are a lot of very nice benefits to using Pinco's UI, in addition to the clock.

    UO is like the casinos. No windows or clocks and keep the oxygen pumping in the room.

    If you want a simple way to keep track of the time then you can have it so your chat is timestamped. Just right click on chat tab and select option to show timestamp.
