Batman, Daredevil and so many 1940s heroes who mostly operated at night would have a hard time operating if the night is too short. And let's be honest, most low level criminal activity happens at night where they are harder to see and identify.

Many supervillains? They want the crowds to see them. But non-super types? They want the night.

How about a 3:2 ratio? 60 minutes of night and 90 minutes of day. Two and a half hours of play time equaling one day in the game.

Intermittent reader of posts though I try to answer at least one of the survey questions every week. :D

No longer the Silver and Gold Age.

This is the future. However, I find that night can be fun if done right.

Since some players can only play for two hours max.

I'd like to see, 35 min. Night and 25 min. Day.

I do have a question about Night.

Might there be a higher population of Villains at night? Also, might there be harder Villains at night?


Just curious.

I'm thinking between two and two and half hours of usual playtime for many players too. I'm thinking the day/night cycle should be within that range for that reason, whatever ratio is decided on.


Might be a good question to put up for a future poll.

How Many Hours In General Do You Play Each Time You Are On A Game?
1. 1-2 hours
2. 2-3 hours
3. 3-4 hours
4. 4+ hours


Should probably have a follow up question as to how many days a week do you generally play the same game and what days are those. I'm figuring a crass judgement of Friday through Sunday being the busiest days for gaming for a lot or maybe even most folks.

My time ranges from.

1. 1 - 2 hours

And.

1-5 hours depending on what day, and what I'm doing in day to day life. Depending on what life brings me.

I would be on most day of the week.

I agree with the different ratios mentioned above. On top of there being more criminal activity at night, there is also the issue that the day/night ratio's change in real life due to lattitude, terrain, and time of year. Perhaps they could change in game as well from time to time. (say 90% night during a haloween event?

My personal thought is that Apotheosis City, because it is the starting zone should have a lot less night because new people are logging in and we don't want them to get the impression that the game is too dark. that being said I think other zones should have a more equal day night cycle than Apotheosis City.

Extra Poll Option

Postby Blaze Rocker » Tue Nov 06, 2018 12:40 am

I cast a vote on a poll but each time I come back to the page the poll is still up and I can't see its current results. Can we get an extra option on these polls for "Just show me the results" ?

Other sites offer this feature so why can't SoH?

A majority of people wants to have a day/night cycle of 90 to 120 minutes. Some want days be equal in length to nights and some want to have longer days. So if i would have to decide i would do a happy medium, like 75 minutes of day and 45 minutes of night, or something similar.

I chose 30 night, 60 day. Just like in many MMORPG games, there should be more day time than night, since that is more conducive to being agressive and doing unusual things...
Agreed. Especially after having seen the night cycle recently on YouTube
