I've tried to schedule several events in the new Calendar and one problem many of the players have is converting that time to their local time. Not only that but sometimes eve time will show a different date for most USA players in the evening. Please show the player's local time for each event. Just add a simple character setting for timezone and then convert it on the client side when viewing the event.

Step 1: Look at the current EVE Time + Date
Step 2: Look at your clock and local date.
Step 3: Figure out what the difference is.
Step 4: ???
Step 5: PROFIT!

Most ops for most corps are based on EVE time anyway... :) so no need to change.. just need people who can do math...

while converting eve time to your local time should not be much of a problem, i cannot see why this simple change would do any harm, it would make life easier for everybody if anything.
Sure i can do the math, but why should i do it myself if i have a computer, a machine whose sole purpose is to compute, can do it for me?

Actually, it would result in people starting to also use their local TZ outside the calendar. Way easier if everyone just use eve time.

I also would like to have local time display inside eve.

I don't mean to replace eve time, but additional clock on the side bar. So both local time and eve time are displayed, and clearly indicated which is which.

Or it can be done with the tool tips of the eve time clock, when you mouse over, local time will show in the tool tip bubble.

Yeah myself I'm used to converting timezones due to my job. But with the younger folk or just about anyone else that simply don't want to do simple math everytime they want to check the clock...I think it's a good idea. I agree that eve time shouldn't be removed. It should just be used as the universal time just like we have in real life with the Unix Epoch. I mean I find myself checking the time like three times just to confirm it's what I thought it was. There really is no need for the complexity. Eve Time + Local Time should both be shown on the clock too! As I said though the biggest problem is when Eve time is the next day for you. That really confuses the crap out of things.

Just because I can convert the time, doesnt mean i want to all the time. I even setup my comp's clock to show me eve time right beside my time but that doesnt mean i like to do the math...
