Units of time
|Project||Knowledge Base||Playing Guide||Coding|
The units of time in Might and Magic Tribute are essentially the same as in other Might and Magic episodes on Colony. The Moon circles the planet in exactly 28 days, and the planet rounds the Sun in exactly 12 x 28 = 336 days.
- 12 months
- 12 x 4 = 48 weeks
- 12 x 4 x 7 = 336 days
All months (moons) have the same length: the time it takes for the Moon to make full circle. Full moon is at 00:00 hours on the 15th day of any month. The months are:
Weeks count seven days, beginning with Monday. There are 4 weeks to each month, and the first day of the month is also the first day of a new week. I.e., weeks run from days 1-7, 8-14, 15-21 and 22-28. Weeks have no names, but they may be referenced as the first, second, third and fourth week of the month.
There are seven days to a week, named:
The day of the week is especially important for travel because coaches and ships usually only depart on specific days. Shopping, and other social activities, however, are uneffected, as there is no weekday of rest.
A day consists of:
- 24 hours
- 24 x 60 = 1440 minutes
- 24 x 60 x 200 = 288000 seconds
The hour of the day indicates whether it is night or day, which affects the sky. Most shops and various other buildings are only open during specific hours. Ships and coaches typically depart at fixed hours.
There are 60 minutes to every hour. Log entries note the minute that an event takes place.
The smallest unit of time, the second, is not displayed, but it is used in combat and other calculations.
