Since there is some confusion on the DT I felt I had to post why.

The EVE servers run on GMT all year round, but contrary to what people think, GMT doesn't have summer time.

So, the UK which has GMT during the winter is now in BST, which is GMT+1. CET with summer time is GMT+2 and EET with summer time is GMT+3.

Righto, so how do I get the EVE UI time to show as BST?

Is there a file somewhere to set it to EST?

You don't it shows EVE time to everyone across the world to make it easier for people in different time zones to plan things.

I think you missed the point......

Eve runs on GMT all year round so the UI will display GMT all year round Wink

If it's easier for you, just think in terms of "Game time" or "Eve time"

How confusing, Eve time is 11:38 and my time is 13:38.
At 2 am tonight the cloak is going one hour forward for me?
So then there will be a 3 hour diffrence between my time in eve.
There used to be a 1 hour diffrence Confused

On the other hand downtime used to be at noon for me so now its going to be at 9:00, which is sort of handy i guess.

You're probably reading it wrong Joshua. Technically the clocks did change today, 1am today, i.e. this morning which can be also classed as last night.
Either that or you've got yesterdays newspaper Laughing

The server crash this morning was enough DT, but this thread isn't about the DT, it is about how summer time affects the DT. Wink

How difficult can looking at a clock be???

Downtime is ALWAYS (and that means as long as there is EVE or mentioned otherwise by CCP!) between 10:00 and 11:00 hours INGAME TIME (or GMT time).

Now is that so difficult??? Login, check the timer and you know when its close to downtime.

Shocked
