@ TaintedBlackCat No worries my friend. Everybody's gotta vent sometimes. Farming is a tough living these days no matter where you are in the world. I was actually intrigued a little to see what the situation was like in Australia. Up until recently, I didn't even realize that Australia was as big in the ag industry as it is.

Actually daylight savings time have always been part of Seasons. It's just that we did not give players any notice when going from winter to summer and vice versa. In GEO's it was possible to turn DST on or off, but not sure any GEO actually used that opporunity. There are so many things in Seasons that go unnoticed :D

Actually, I believe I remember reading about it in the help menu for seasons way back when. Didn't you guys offset what hour it got dark at or something?

It was an hour offset yes, but not all the time ofc. DST was applied according to the EU convention (as different conventions of when DST is applied exist) and with the assumption that early spring was the same as March.

IRL I'm a VBA developer.....I create MI solutions in Access and Excel. So..... Yep, for 17 I created a farm sim tracker that drew me graphs of field yields and livestock growth and return, labour costs, year on year comparisons, etc, etc, etc.

However, what I found after a while was that it's so much of a ballache filling in every little transaction, weather, etc....that the effort wasn't worth it. If, however, some awesome modder could do the same in game then I'd definitely buy that man a pint.
Considering the amount of data generated within this game I do find it odd that there hasn't been any talk of including a means to export the data from the game directly. This is probably a direct result of how well this game sells on console, why spend any energy producing a system that half your playerbase cannot use.
There are loads of console games that have apps for mobile devices, probably need a database setup someplace to store all the data, but I think MS has an API for direct communications.

Isn't the EU dropping DST in October?

Yes, but the option with DST is kept as many countries still have this. Maybe we'll leave default to have DST all year as I believe EU will have summer time all year. Since there probably are very very few players that would even notice the difference we could naturally remove this feature ;)

I noticed that it got darker in the winter earlier than in the summer but never connected the dots to DST. I guess just because that’s how it is irl I didn’t really thing anything of it :lol: it’s a cool feature though it really shows how much effort and detail y’all put into Seasons

DST is Daylight Saving Time.

In Europe, we go to DST last Sunday of March and in Winter time last Sunday of October.

Many countries in EU will keep the Winter Time and they will change last Sunday of October, other countries will stay in DST. In my country we will change the time for last time this March and we will stay in DST because we have sun almost all year :)
