TimeKeeper (Unity Asset)

Software Engineering in the Abrams Trek Age

Timekeeper is a tool that can be used to simulate the passing of time within a video game.. The user can display one or many text objects in a scene showing the date and time and choose the speed at which time increments in-game.  

The user can also select the unit of measurement for incrementing time. This means that time can progress forwards by seconds, minutes or hours. 

In addition to simulating the passage of time, one of the more useful features of Timekeeper is its ability to extrapolate a future date and time and then schedule an event to occur when that time has been reached.  

This means that a player could write their own logic and delay it for a specified amount of in-game hours, minutes, seconds, even days months or years if needed.  

The tool is currently in the submission phase but I am hoping it will be available to purchase on the Unity Asset Store soon. Keep an eye on the blog for updates or get in touch if you would like to know more.
