Just a small request: so far, the program only seems to display dates (e.g. in the timeline) using the American date format (mm/dd/yyyy), which I -being European and used to either dd.mm.yyyy or yyyy/dd/mm - find quite unintuitive.

It would be great if we could get an option to change the appearance of dates in the software.

+1!

I always have to double-take American dating, to make sure I'm reading it right.

I'd like custom date formats too - ideally it should support universal sortable dates: yyyy/mm/dd-hh:mm:ss

Fifthed!

Sleet was enjoying a tasty beverage at his local tavern, when a Tarrasque showed up in the local area. He managed to valiantly get on it's back and ride it. How he did it is a mystery to this day...

Being American myself... I am used to the European format because of the Military.

The Army has always had it so that we made out date like the European's format (31 Mar, 2014) I just do it that way when I am signing things and even think of it that way. I have to force myself to do it other wise now.

It's not a big deal to me, but I prefer yyyy-mm-dd.

Ideally the default would be to follow the system date and time preferences.

This gets tricky as we are modeling the Gregorian calendar in our in-game calendar mechanism. We cannot apply your system format arbitrarily to the default realm calendar, as that realm calendar may be some other calendar such as Traveller or Pathfinder.

Being Australian, I'm in the same boat. We use dd/MM/yyyy here.

But being a programmer, I also use yyyy-MM-dd a lot.

(And just for nerd points, "mm" stands for minutes, hence the use of "MM". )
