    Multiple People including myself have been annoyed by this feature called the day changer in shop. Its necessary to have night for many reasons including turtle hatching, redstone, daylight sensors for farms and lighting etc. Although I think the weather changer should stay because of lag I think the day changer is unnecessary and I think PF would benefit more from it being removed rather than it staying. I've been getting annoyed by this for quite some time now. Let me hear your thoughts.

    Will be considered if this thread gets higher interest in the idea.

    The day changer should not be removed. Although night is essential for some things, day is more essential for growing crops, which is the point of the server. It is often that we are caught up in our own agenda, and forget that the server is a shared place. To remove the day changer would mean that many players have to sit through long nights to do the things that want to do in the day time.

    I was able to hatch my turtle eggs easily, as I simply chose to do it at a down-time on the server. As well as this, Mo would frequently set it to day to annoy me. Instead of complaining, I simply took a breath and found something else to do while I waited.

    I don't believe the day changer should be removed, as the reasons do not consider the wider community.

    I agree with Raaaaa, I think many newer players to the server really need the extra day time in order to grow their crops. If your redstone relies on a daylight sensor, then you need to rely on something else. There are plenty of other ways to make a long timer. As for a solution to the turtle hatching problem, the Apprentice and Hero ranks get a command called /ptime, which lets you set your own personal time. Since Apprentice and Hero are both below Ultimate, I feel like /ptime should be added to Ultimate as well, and then you could just set yourself to night in order to hatch the turtles.

    Sidenote: I feel like the same thing should be done for the extra disguises that are in the Apprentice package. You pay more and someone who pays less gets something that you don't? Doesn't seem like a good marketing plan.

    EDIT: Nevermind, /ptime works for Ultimates. That's your solution for turtle hatching then.

    In my honest opinion I don't think it should be removed.

    A lot of the people on here have melon farms which require light. Along with that vast majority, a lot of them can't afford to buy glowstone to keep their farms lit up and are requesting people to change it to day. I personally don't mind if its night since I have nightvision but a lot of people absolutely hate night time for reason like they can't see because of their comp settings, a texture pack, being able to get around efficiently, trying to build without placing a large amount of torches, mainly general things.

    I think its essential to the server, a lot of people would probably get angry if it was removed. Also its essential to farming (not sure what farms use daylight sensors), the things like turtles and anything else that requires night doesn't help you at all on the server. Hopefully it isn't taken out.

    I doubt this would be a solution as this only effects what you're seeing and not what the server is actually set too, setting it to-night for a player doesn't mean it'll effect things like spawning mobs or in his case, hatching turtle eggs.

    Oh true, I guess I'm just dumb. I still think new players' ability to grow crops is more important than hatching turtle eggs, which have nothing to do with farming.

    Anything can be seen as farming if you're progressing, gaining more, etc; however, I do agree that a players ability to grow crops quicker is overall the general public standard vote which is why this post would need way more interest in the suggestion.

    I do understand the split sides between this as our player base is growing larger and changing the day time can be frustrating for many. I do think there's a compromise we can reach without completely removing it or keeping it. If anyone would like to chip in some ideas, feel free.

    Here's an idea, feel free to give feedback on it:

    Global cooldown of changing the time which will allow day cycles to happen while mostly keeping it a day to assist with everyone's farming and such.

    Not that your idea is bad, but another possible idea would be to just make turtle eggs hatch during the day, which seems like it would satisfy everyone's needs. I don't think this would be too overpowered since turtles don't really do anything as far as making money on the server.

    I like Chicken's idea. Not sure how the coding works, or if it can be overwritten. If it can, and turtles can be spawned in the day, I think that'd solve issues. The original posts mentions sensors for farms, and lighting as other reasons why night is important, however, I've personally never seen a farm that works with daylight sensors. It would be incredibly inefficient.

    I'm happy to be proven wrong, but I believe the turtle eggs are the only thing that "needs" night on the server? I've not heard of anything else that does.

    I do like your idea, but I don't see how viable it is without needing to store the location of every turtle eggs.
