How about you look at your watch, phone or in one of the corners on your desktop? Maybe the one at your wall?


Don't have a phone or a watch or a clock on the wall and I'd have to alt tab out, which would be bad in the middle of something important, mmkay?

You make a valid point, good Sir or Madam.

EVE time is fine for EVE. It shouldn't be hard to learn that it isn't your local time.

It could show local time when you mouse over it though.


For us Englishers, it IS our local time for half of the year, and is one hour off for the other half. But as a little featurette, I would like it to optionally show local time!

I dunno about you guys but i learned how to tell the time in primary school (that was done between the ages of 2 and 10) though im fairly sure i had a firm grasp of how to tell the time by the age of 4 or 5.

My advice to the OP would be to go back to school.

First I though Paradox is just drunk. Then I learned about this youtube thing and Internet search.

No way. That's the New Eden Time part of Eve universe and immersion feeling.
For your local time you can watch the clock on your Window (if plain arithmetic is a problem...).

srsly, how hard can it be ?


Here's some solutions for you in decreasing order of mental taxation:

Solution 1
1. Figure out what time zone you live in, remember the time difference from UTC/GMT
2. Read the EVE Clock (helpful hint: EVE is UTC/GMT)
3. Do simple math (the stuff you learned in Elementary/Primary school)
4. ???
5. PROFIT!!!

Solution 2

1. (While in EVE) Hit Escape
2. Graphics Settings
3. change from "Full Screen" to "Windowed"
4. ???
5 PROFIT!!!

Solution 3
1. Look at a clock.
2. ???
3. PROFIT!!!

You mean that every ones computer is not set to UTC? I put a desktop widget for 'local' time...

Are you standing where you should be?

*nix computers use UTC internally but not Windows.

Linux: Internal BIOS clock is set to UTC, Xfce displays local time on the desktop.

Windows: Internal BIOS clock is set to local time, Windows displays local time on the desktop. At least that's how it worked when I ran Windows XP. W7 might be different, never used it.

I'm from the century that despises cell phones and facebook. I've hated cell phones since they were called beepers, I am not a fan of being overly accessible or connected to the world by the hip. There used to be a time when everyone went somewhere to be social. While those places still exist, I find it overly annoying when I see a bunch of people living their social life by staring at a phone. Oh dear I think I just ranted.....

And showed your age. Tell me, you still wind up clocks too?

Though I am shocked and amazed that you own something so modern as a computer, connected to the internet. Playing an MMO.

You do realize that God created days before days even existed? It wasn't until the fourth(!) day that God created the day-night cycle to "mark seasons, days, and years." You would have better luck asking Dr. Who for the correct time than God.

I'm not fond of social media & mobile phones either but I still own a mobile. I happen to be one of the few people in the world that is capable of owning an iPhone with out staring at it every waking moment of my life.
