Is there a way to set the calendar for a Realm Works Realm to use the Golarian calendar instead of one of the Earth calendars?

Feature request? It does not help immersion, and timing my campaign stuff out....

The whole calendar thing has been a major feature request for an extended period of time. There are several folks on the boards that are HUGE calendar advocates and will probably pop in at some point when they see anything related to calendars. Right now, we are waiting on 64 bit, which just arrived in Beta today, and the Content Market functionality, before they start rolling out additional features.

Calendars? Did someone mention calendars?

Thanks for the concise assessment, Asandir! Very well said.

Believe me, Ferret, some of us feel your pain, but there’s a long history of prioritisation and I think most of us accept that 64-bit and the Content Market (being a huge improvement and monetisable, respectively) take priority over our beloved custom calendars.

Which doesn’t stop us talking about it.

Trust us calendars are a high priority for a lot of RW's biggest fans. I wanted 64 bit for a whole lot of reasons but Calendars are the biggest undelivered feature IMO.

@Chemlak, thanks for the kind words.

You just had to bring up prioritisation with the calendars. Now we are going to have people popping in to discuss what happened to the priority of calendars and how it got on the bottom.

Hehehehehe.

Just in case anyone reading this isnít aware, there was a big survey about desired features a few years back, and custom calendars fell somewhere in the middle. The conclusion from the data that LWD reached was that theyíre very important to the people that want them, but not at all important to everyone else.

Now, we know the functionality of calendars exists, but the problem is UI and usability, which LWD want to get right because if the average person canít use it, itís probably inappropriate for a software release.

Whether you agree with this stance or not (I personally donít, I think they should be released as is and improved in updates), thatís LWDís decision to make and I support their right to make that decision.
