This update makes some wide-ranging changes to how the day-night cycle works, so might take a little getting used to. But overall it should give you a lot more control over your characters operating hours and related factors. We'll also be tweaking some of the details, such as timing card frequencies, as we get more feedback.
Revamped the timing system so the game now has more of a sense of time, with less abstraction.
- Your time of day will jump to mid afternoon to kickstart the new system, even if it was currently night for you..
- If you're in jail or laying low with Jax you might see some slight weirdness.
Another day/Another night no longer automatically bumps you to nightfall.
Sleeping for the night now consumes a certain number of hours, depending on the type of sleep.
- Meaning that the time when you wake up is now calculated based on when you went to sleep, so you've got much more control over your rhythm.
You can now do you full sleep for the day at any time of day (as long as you have Days without sleep).
You can no longer wait for night at your place; there's a new option to kill some time that can be done any time instead.
Time passing in the early morning and at night is controlled by cards, as before, with a new card for the rest of the day.
Each NPC now has their own schedule (implemented for Ann, Jax, Miriam and Willow so far).
Various locations now have opening hours.
Activities in bars, etc., now sometimes increment the time.
Temperature changes throughout the day are now driven by a more sophisticated model.
New characters now get Days without sleep after meeting Raff for the first time, meaning you can sleep straight away.

The rising sun and The setting sun cards now appear at the relevant times of day.
Tweaked the familiarity test modifier for night hawks.
Many smaller tweaks to do with time and temperature.
Redesigned permanent employer work for enforcers a little.
- You can now ask for time off.
- Job details appear on the On a job pinned card.
- Job times are more specific, so watch the clock.
