I could be doing something wrong, and I'm prepared to be told that I am, but quite often when I need to insert a date my calendar will have reset itself to year 20,000.

It takes a little while to click through to the dates I need (today 1923 but sometimes I have to go back to 1400).

Is there any way of programming RW so that it automatically goes to the year specified in some kind of setting? That would be really useful.

A fully fledged calendar function including custom calendars will soon(TM) be implemented. I.e. we have been waiting for improvements of this feature since the beginning of time. Many things are already prepared in the code, but - as far as I know - the GUI has to be completely overhauled. As we have been told, a programmer will have to work at least a complete month on it. Since RW understandably needs the revenue, the calendar features will have to wait until after the opening of the content market.



So, all we can do is wait more or less patiently, remined the good folks at Lone Wolf of our needs regularly, and hope.

The calendar as it exists now is a mess. I try to avoid using it as much as possible.

You can make your own quite easily. Not ideal but its a work around.

I did find a calendar tool I can use as workaround.

https://fantasy-calendar.com/

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MFvY...ature=youtu.be

It does almost all I want. But the tool
  • exists outside of RW, so that I still cannot use the date snippets etc.
  • needs a work-around to simulate different worlds with a common calendar (i.e. I set up the planet we play on and its moon as additional moons, so that I can at least track the beginn of seasons and the moon phases).




Hopefully, when the Custom Calendar feature finally arrives, it will work somewhat like this, including the settings for sunrise and sunset (on a variety of worlds) and weather.

at this point i would rather have the Gregorian calendar removed from realm works entirely and any drop down menus for date or time span to just be text boxes.
