Default DCS Calender - What day is 000 (sunrise/sunset, moon phases)

Hi,

I've been doing a little testing on the the above subject. And have found some answers and some oddities.

Firstly, moon phases. 28 day cycle.. (approx.) full moon on day 25 > 53 > 81 etc etc., new moon (no moon) day 39 > 67 etc etc.

Now regarding sunset/sunrise... day 000 seems to be approx. mid summer, with day 183 approx. mid winter.

Is this right?.. day 000 i would have assumed was Jan 1st.

Is this all still WIP?

Have a search around, there is a good table of days someone has created some time back (try searching the Lockon forums) ...
I "think" day 000 is the 1st July?

000 is 1st July as I know too. Try to set midnight in day 100 - you'll see how dark can be...

Err i was searching back through my threads to find this one... and now it seems a bit less clear.

Is day 0 in the editor the 1st June or is the 15th day the 1st June? or is it the 15t June... or...I could translate this numerous ways.

LOL

EDIT: Never mind.. its the 1st June.

MadTommy,

One of my squad-mates posted this in our forums... Pretty handy I thought.



and I found this in the DCS Forums:

Quote:
Mission design helps with this too, always remember to set the day to 200 in the editor so you get the correct angle of the sun in the sky for winter, so it's representative of December/January (leaving the day at 0 means its set at default June 1st, it looks quite odd with the sun overhead with lying snow!)

Hope this helps a bit!
