Timezones

Timezones. This is a thing now. https://i.imgur.com/H6gyzMo.png

Some questions for all of you.

  1. Nations. Right now I've drawn vertical lines on the exact borders of each timezone. If your nation is in multiple zones, I will edit the lines to give you a better fit. This can also depend on the neighbours with which you have a close relationship. For this, I can follow national borders. For nations who stretch from east to west, I can also follow rivers or mountain ranges. Your choice.
  2. Names. At the top, you'll see an abbreviation underneath some timezones. You can request one of these as well. Just make sure to discuss it with your fellow nations before starting an argument here. Here are some of the RL existing ones. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_time_zone_abbreviations
    Currently represented are:
    • -10 SST or Sunset Standard Time
    • -6 IST or @Iverica Standard Time
    • 0 UTC or Coordinated Universal Time / Temps Universel Coordonné
    • +6 TMT or Tagmatium Mean Time (for @Tagmatium Rules)
    • +7 CET or Central Europan Time

Zulu time falls within my empire... My empire is the greatest for it has the observatory!

On a side note: For the next round of expansions, could I get area six or eight? I would like to have my capital in area eight  in that indent into the mountain on the western side. Oh, and I will be expanding my rail network westward to Ahrana!

I fall within two timezones, which means more people. 

Ugh.

All to the west: @Ahrana, @Girkmand, and the lovely @Variota.

I feel as though we should create something generic, seeing as we have several nations here. My capital is in the east so I'm not entirely fussed what we go for.

All to the east: Our robotic friend @Synturia.

We fall within central Argis (four zones to the west, four to the east). I therefore propose Central Argic Time, or CAT. Meow.

Obviously I'll promote Central Variotan Time or something like that for the timezone. That being said, something generic would also work for me as it's obviously multiple nations and continents together in one timezone.

How about we following current RL conventions. Have each timezone as a number +/- of GMT e.g Gallambria is GMT+1. Then each country in that time zone would have their own named Time Zone, Gallambrian Standard Time, and Astreiden Standard Time - then if they want to implement daylight savings they can introduce a DST -e.g Gallambria with DLS would be GDST (GMT+2).

@Derthalen Area six would be the most natural expansion. But this is not the right topic for it. Noting the location if your capital, I'll place you in UTC-1.

@Prymont Your choice on which timezone(s) to join. Your capital is in UTC-2. To the west, the Canamo sea and your closest neighbours are in UTC-3.

@Variota I wouldn't go with "Central Variotan Time", since there is not east or west Variota to contrast with. Maybe East Alharun Time?

@Gallambria There are markers to indicate hours ±UTC. Since we have no Greenwich, I'm sticking with the more neutral UTC (Coordinated Universal Time / Temps Universel Coordonné) for now. You're currently sharing yours with @Astriedan. I'll bend the timeline slightly to your east, to include your entire nation.

@All: In the end, what I'm going for is something like this. Any name, even multiple names, will do. Check RL for reference. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_time_zone_abbreviations

Aww yeah, a timezone all to my own (On second thought that sounds kinda lonely). My top two suggestions are Andallan Standard Time or Central Thalassa Time. Whichever one sounds better. Do note that some parts overlap out of the boundaries such as Iverica's northern islands and southern Andalla.

The ISTC island, by the way, is also in my timezone. Either you can keep it there (by the way, it overlaps to the west too), or you can extend the SSI time into it.

By the way, is the timezone map an extra map or will it become the main map? Because I think it might get a bit confusing with all the colors.

Thanks for the update! I was actually trying to find out the difference between Andalla and Ahrana time to calculate when my planes leave, but I gave up. Now I can! :D

@Orioni Great work! The map looks brilliant with the Time Zones. 

I'm happy for you to follow borders with Adaptus, keeping the mainland entirely in UTC +6 with my western island being UTC +5. 

Although I think internally Adaptus will use TMT. Due to close relations with Tag. So technically Adaptus would be TMT -1 and TMT -2.

@Orioni, I am not sure if you caught my comment, but could you shift my whole country into Zulu time? I am going to have year round summer time due to the fact that I do not like changing my clocks, and it has fewer downsides than not having summer time at all.

I see that UTC -3 is not exactly in the center of Argis but your Argic neighbors fall mostly there. Wouldn’t it suit @Prymont @Girkmand @Ahrana and Hellenistic Rus to be on the same time zone?

Sure it’s not exactly geographically Central Argis but it’s really close and I’d consider that area politically Central Argis.

I don't mind being in two time zones, actually I prefer it and wouldn't like it to change. And with what works Political can just go out the door nothing like this should be done by politics in my view. so I say leave it as it is for Ahrana.

As for abbreviating UTC -2, I propose a compromise: PST, Prymontian-Synturian Time. It could be abbreviated further to PrySynt Time and could be pronounced “present time”. Since all of Synturia, including its capital is in UTC -2 and the capital of Prymont is as well, I consider this a reasonable compromise. @Orioni

I know this thread is kind of old, but I thought I'd put a few suggestions for the timezone that I and @Asgeirria are in. 

Western Continental Coast Time? WCCT?

Golden Standard Time? GST? Because.... -7 is the time zone where all da money is?

Western Alharu Time? WAT? This makes sense to me because Alharu is the biggest continent in the area. Granted, there's a little bit of Western Alharu outside of what would be called Western Alharu Time but maybe that time zone is called something else (like Coastal Alharu Time or whatever country (countries?) might make up Alharu.

      Nation in Eurth: Walneria
      Flag: 
      Capital name: Tyrámen
      Capital location: Riverside city (on the map I provided ideally on one of the three rivers in the middle of the country)
      Stats Chosen: Viz my vision statement
      Factbook/iiwiki link: https://iiwiki.us/wiki/Walneria (Note: I hope to fill in the lore after I get the location, because I do not want to be vague)
      Culture: Walnerian (Germanic with very strong historical Slavic influence)
      Climate: Temperate or Subtropical. ideally Central European, or Balkan
      History: Historically an independent kingdom. lost its independence in 1640's. In 1820's, local uprising lead by the nobility ensures independence, but local stagnation and problems with dictatorial regimes start the 1880's revolution, which brings the nation close to being broken apart. In 1899, the conflict is conlcuded by establishment of the Confederacy of Walneria. In 1920's, the economy boom provided enough money for the country to quickly develop, even starting defensive lines against foreign threats. 1930's (or early 1940's), the country has been invaded by a foreign authoritarian power (mentioned in my academy story), which was eventually driven out of the country, which pushed Walnerians to looks suspiciously on the wurld and rather pushing neutral and isolationist policies while arming to the teeth for just in case scenarios. Since 1899, the country is a democracy. In 1912, women were given their votes and with few notable exceptions (such as during the mentioned war), elections are held. The last major reform of the system was in 1988, when the country shifted from bicameral to unicameral system. It is a parliamentary republic with a president as a representative.
      Desired Location: 
      For lore, it would be ideal, if Walneria was located between an authoritarian Germanic country/bloc (Stedori and Velaheria play that role really well) and a democratic Slavic country/bloc (Possibly future comers?) (for interesting roleplay regarding the national identity of Walnerians).

      'Ello Sir @Orioni.

      After the December Prompts and the plans to move Metztlitlaca westward to allow for Oyus' Fearannteth, I have a couple requests for some new Metztlitlaca Cities.



      ● Movement of Altepetl Tekaken westward to remain near the centre of the country (and still the capital city).
      ● Adding the city of Azcapoƶinco / Azcapotzinco. Either version works as well as adding "Altepetl"
      ● Adding the city of Pomodoria City
      ● Adding Seylosian Kaseka. The city is going to play a semi-major role in the current Metztlitlaca expansion and as such having it's location on the map properly shown will be beneficial.

      Hopefully this is not too cumbersome/late. Thank you :).

      BIG EDIT : The topic's name has been changed from "Climate Map Rework" to "Eurth Map Rework", as this has become a much larger discussion on the map and changes that could be made.
       
      Hello everyone! I'm Creaturae / Gene, and I was told that it'd be a good idea to bring the conversation of a reworked climate map to the forums. So, here it goes!
      It's fairly obvious that the current climate map + ocean currents of Eurth are lacking when compared to other in-depth projects. Just compare the current climate map of Eurth to that of Earth. It's a fairly large gap in quality (though that is to be expected, as I don't believe anyone here is a professional cartographer nor has a team of scientists to back of the research of the climate map).

      So, what can be done to change this? That's where this forum comes in! I (until Orioni or any of the RP mentors tell me otherwise) will and have started work on a reworked climate map for Eurth. Now obviously, reworking the climate of the entire world can leave some nations in a difficult situation where their nation is suddenly in the middle of the desert or they have a climate akin to that of Siberia or Northern Canada. That's where this forum also comes in handy. If you have any problems with the climate that have been assigned, please let me know immediately so I can find some way around it, realistically or otherwise.
      To give an idea what this new climate map will look like, here is something I worked on before.
      Please note: this map is incorrect in multiple ways and I am in the process of remaking this again. Only use this map as a reference for the climate that you DO NOT want your nation to have. For what each color represents and what type of climate it is, please reference the Köppen climate classification Wikipedia page.
      And again, if you have any questions or general feedback about the climate map, please let me know! I'm not an expert on climates either and am getting all of my information from Artifexian videos and Wikipedia.
