Day and Nighttime Settings Properties

11 replies 158 views Edited May 15, 2013
I want a property set at dawn/dusk or nighttime.

I can only go by the pictures in the store. Do some have a day/night cycle? If so how can you tell? And do they go by real time (what time zone) or an artificial cycle?

Granzella's Japanese teahouse, Glittering sands apartment and GZ Burger, offer this day&night thing.

Southern Isle apartment and the EDO row houses, do the time change during special events and such only.

The Dream yachts offer this, at least the one in the gift machine does. I'm not too sure about the store bought one, perhaps somone can elaborate if it does or not.

The LOOT sunset yacht offers this as well. Eventually in time, they're re-releasing the Hollywood Hills apartment nightime version. So look forward to that.

So all the other properties are locked in at the time of the picture?

Do you mean, all the other properties available?

If so, I'm not 100% sure. However, I am sure that day and night cycles, hasn't been on Home that long. The first space I remember it getting introduced in, was the LOOT sunset yacht. Any space before that, I don't recall any day and night cycles.

Ok thanks. I hate trying to set a romantic get together and it's high noon sunlight in your face.

Well, my suggestion for a romantic scenario would be Glittering retreat, or GZ burger.

Glittering retreat has that whole romantic getaway type feel, while GZ burger has that whole patio area, that feels like a romantic dinner for two.

Best way I can sum them two spaces up.

Might want to double check with someone on the Lockwood spaces before considering it. It often doesn't reflect the day/night change for guests (works maybe 1 out of 100 times they enter). At least the paid one is like that. Not sure on the gift machine one.

Changing TOD effects (especially manually) add a great deal of value to personal spaces with outdoor envirmnents, which is why I am surprised more personal spaces do not include this option.

 

The same goes for public spaces (but automatic TOD changes obviously).

 

Even with devs that have offered TOD changes in the past, like LKWD, they are not consistent, like Dream Hideaway not having any TOD option or change.  Only Granzella appears to place a high value on TOD options for both their public and personal spaces...  but even they did not include a TOD chnage for Glittering Sands Beach public space, but at least they added a very nice one to the personal space version.

The Southern Island apartment (Private Hideaway) does have an automatic TOD change every hour (or might be 2 hours I forget) and even includes a beautiful fireworks display.  The EDO public space also has a Day/Night TOD cycle.

Alright, my apologies, I wasn't sure if that space had one or not.

Nice to see they included it in all their spaces, minus the fossil museum and EDO row houses.

 

Also, nice pictures by the way. :catwink:

Edo is the same with the Southern Island Retreat. These 2 spaces changes automatically.
The others spaces are are done manually.
The fossil museum can change it's indoor lighting level. But yeah, not really a day/night thing like the others.
