Stop using mm/dd/yyyy

Recommended Posts

Age of sail logs entries are by month blocks. They would state the month once and then the day number per entry needed ( and individual entries for different hours during the day ).

So MM/DD

:) 

For gameplay reasons, sure. Have an option to choose format.

I'm sure I'm not the only one that gets annoyed by using this system.

Whose flag is on the moon?  :P

And you can keep your metric system too!  Lol

I believe that was covered in great detail in the documentary "Iron Sky" by Timo Vuorensola, Johanna Sinisalo and Michael Kalesniko ;)

Ok but I want an option to change all measurements from your silly metric system to the proper Standard (FPS) system. Inches and feet.

You know, the measurement system that actually makes sense to use. [insert man on the moon remarks here] “Hmm what’s half a millimeter? A quarter of a millimeter? Uh....lemme calculate that real quick for ya *bunch of zeros behind a decimal*”  Vs. “Hmm what’s half a sixteenth of an inch? 1/32nd an inch. Half of that? 1/64th.” 

 

Yes this is definitely what NA needs most right now. We don’t have any OP ships that need balancing or any broken game mechanics. 😂

You've been using a metric system from day one, Pennies/Cents to Dollars? Inches are split into tens, hundred's and thousandths etc. Don't get me wrong I am old enough to remember being taught the IMPERIAL system, BUT, the metric system makes waaaay more sense.

 

Your date format sucks and is not logical.

Actually, since we’re in a game with ship construction we should be using feet inches and eighths and pluses since that’s what they’d likely be using. That’d be 2-3-4+ for 2 feet 3 and 9/16ths inches.  But perhaps that’s too nautical for you metric types 😀

The Yanks are simply a bunch of "versetters en dwarstrekkers". That's Dutch/Afrikaans for basically a Rebel but with much more meaning. They cannot play by the rules. They just re-invent everything just to be difficult. Look at their sport...and then they call it World Series and stuff...😝 🤣

And we should have different feet and inches depending of the nation we are in :D

Moon doesn't have a day-night-cycle, as it's tidally locked.

It does actually.  A day on the moon equals it's orbital period.  It spins once around on it's axis for each orbit of the earth.  About 327 hours of daylight followed by 327 hours of night each lunar day.
