Mid-latitude sunrise/sunset offset times
Issues: I found it impossible to change the sun's path, which is different in summer and winter. The sun will always follow the sky's "equator", even during winter and summer. Also, in summer there are no nights as such around the summer solstice in where I live. We have a prolonged twilight and even at solar midnight (1 AM) the sky is a lot brighter than in winter as the sun doesn't go far below the horizon (grey nights). The game doesn't seem to be able to simulate this, though.
The times are as follows:
Sunrise: 7:00 AM - Sunset: 7:30 PM
Sunrise: 4:30 AM - Sunset: 9:30 PM
Sunrise: 7:00 AM - Sunset: 4:30 PM
Sunrise: 8:15 AM - Sunset: 3:45 PM
I simulated the DST (Daylight Saving Time) as well.
You can watch a video which shows a 24-hour simulation of the process HERE
This is simple _XML modification of SeasonsManager_0xda46c4abc19a24ff. If you have a mod which modifies this file, it will conflict. Make sure there are no conflicts. Built with version 1.63. The default values are somewhat bizarre:
<kSummerSunriseAndSunsetOffsets value="0, 0"> changed to: "-1.5, 3.5"
<!--Summer Sunrise/Sunset hour time offsets.-->
<kFallSunriseAndSunsetOffsets value="1, -1.25"> changed to: "1, -1.5"
<!--Fall Sunrise/Sunset hour time offsets.-->
<kWinterSunriseAndSunsetOffsets value="2, -2.5"> changed to: "2.25, -2.25"
<!--Winter Sunrise/Sunset hour time offsets.-->
<kSpringSunriseAndSunsetOffsets value="1, -1.25"> changed to: "1, 1.5"
<!--Spring Sunrise/Sunset hour time offsets.-->
Each number shows how many hours from the default the sunrise (6 AM) and sunset (6 PM) will occur. Positive numbers indicate 'later than default' and negative ones 'earlier than default'.
