For clarification as to why there is no daytime in eve, I have compiled these two graphics which demonstrate the difference.

Exhibit A: Space at night

And

Exhibit B: Space during the day

Please take a note of the differences between the two.


You sir, are a f*cking genius ... Laughing

Actually there is. I customized my ship, so that my cabin revolves around in the ship so it is always on the night side of the ship. I get a lot of sleep that way. To compensate my crew quaters are always on the day side of the ship. As my crew is paid each night I safe a lot of wages that way.

Holy ****... Are you serious...

You want night and day.... Here is what you do.

If you want it to be day time fly to a spot where you can see the big bright thing in the background. This would be the sun.

If you want night, fly behind a planet/astroid or any other object that will block the sun... You now have night.

I can believe I just wasted time typing this! I am just as stupid for answering the original question.

primary plot lines of Halo and Planetside take place on the surface of spacial body and as such they have a night side and a day side. in outer space you wouldnt have this. "night" is just a perception of time anyway, in Northern Alaska they have a time of year where it is never fully dark but they still call it night and day afaik.


add to this a ship is a 24hr operation, the 24:00 shift is likely still called the night shift.
CJ Cherryh uses the term 'alterday' Wink

You can't be serious. Empire is already WAY overbright.

Have you ever SEEN a map of Empire space? Play with those filters a little and you'll see clearly that Empire space is far too Luminous (with no risk) already.

Outside Empire there's more risk AND you can't see a damn thing because it's so freaking dark. Talk about a double-whammy. Lo-sec/0.0 has it much harder and Kirana Si here want's exclusive photon access. I call BS.

It's become apparent that the OP may actually have had a point, somewhere.

Bravo for a worthwhile topic.

Nerf Empire Luminosity!

I'm going to go out on a limb here and assume the OP is wondering why New Eden Standard Time does not adjust it's time like so many other countries do, forcing him to adjust his internal Local Time to NEST conversion constant.

It's because Icelandic people have to remember to adjust their GMT -> <Insert whacky country that likes to fiddle with their base-point for time measurement a couple of times a year> conversion constant. Vengeance is sweet. Cool


wow...prism got trolled.

How come there is no day time in EVE like other MMO?
If we define "day" as the state of "the sun not being occluded by another celestial object" we find that most often there is "day" in EVE. Further we determine that "day" is not a time concept in EVE but rather a positional concept. In the sandbox spirit of EVE you can choose to be wherever you want and thus enjoy as much "day" as you fancy.

In CCPs offices:

-Guys, this troll posted this ridiculous comment. It's just too stupid to be for real....

Oh really? Are people falling for it?

-Yah, man... it's priceless... Who says Eve has a smarter playerbase (*snickers*)... wait, aren't half our staff drawn from the playerbase... oh shi-

Okay, but can we play, too?

-Okay, I'll be the straight guy and you can come in later and smack him around a bit, okay Prism? Just remember not to be too mean...remember what Oveur said about ****ing off the clients, okay?

Sounds good... I'll be good. Sorta:0
