@Cid:

I believe the reason that we can not just type in the date has to do with custom calendars.

The day they arrive you will be able to make all kinds of wacko calendars (and trust me - people will).

In order to select the date and at the same time make sure it makes sense within the (wacko) calendar system you created the program only allows you to select legal elements in order to arrive at a date that exists.

We all know (I assume) why a program balks at you when you input February 33rd.

But a user wouldn't know a custom calendar system as well.


That is my guess, anyway.

Legend has it, that the Tarrasque is a huge fighting beast, perpetually hungry.
Sleet entered History when he managed to get on the back of a Tarrasque only to be ridden out of History shortly after.

Using Realm Works, Worldographer (Hexographer 2), LibreOffice, Daz3D Studio, pen & paper for the realm World of Temeon and the system LEFD - both homebrewed.
