Sunrise Sunset

Version: v1.01
by: Taraezor [More]

Description
Shows Sunrise and Sunset times in your local time. Also shows the "Central Server Time".

Deutsch, Español, Français, Italiano, Português Brasileiro, Русский, 한국어, 繁體中文, 简体中文

How to Use
Instal: Like any other AddOn. Set up: Works 'as is'. For options enter '/ss', '/sunrise', or '/sunset' in chat.

You may singly select any of the three display lines. The times appear when you pass your mouse over the time display at the foot of the MiniMap.

Explanation
My FAQ explains why sunrise/sunset no longer match your real world time. I also explain how I am able to reveal the "hidden" time that Blizzard uses as the basis for the perhaps strange sunrise and sunset times you experience in game.

Features
* Able to be used by other AddOns
* No Ace libraries = no bloat
* Ultra small cpu/memory footprint

Other AddOns
Call the global function SunriseSunset_EstimateTime() with no data needing to be passed. The function returns two integers, hours and minutes, representing the Central Server Time in 24 hour notation. This will work even if you choose to not display this AddOn's clock Tooltip lines. See also.

If You Like Sunrise Sunset
While adventuring, map your way with X and Y and keep track of Sunrise & Sunset, pickup a great raptor pet with Adorable Hatchling Nests, search for Netherwing Eggs, hunt for achievement critters and NPCs with Rare Love, try Tip to enhance your Tooltips, go the Hard Yards, the most accurate way to measure distance, use This Scampi Happening for fish flavoured Tooltips, or Yarrr for pirate Tooltips, and instal Let Minnow to show off your fishing poles! When you turn geek, turn to Fibonacci! Who wipes? We Don't Wipe, an excellent DPS maximiser!

Cookies, Beer & Donations
It is all about the cookies and beer although, and don't let Gallywix know about this, a "thank you" in the comments section fuels my programming appetite and is very much appreciated. And then, you could cut straight to Click here to lend your support! because as Gallywix would say... "time is money, friend".

== v1.01 - 11th January 2017
* Minor tweak as I standardise code across my AddOns

== v1.00 - 5th January 2017
* Initial release

How Sunrise & Sunset Works

Over the years Blizzard has, commendably, attempted to align nominally geographic servers so that the in game time matches the players' real world time.

Recent changes forced upon Blizzard by exploiters "server hopping", as well as the need to consolidate servers, mean that the in game time might be very different from your real world time.

Further, the actual time used in game is not available to you. The first inkling you have that things are not aligned is when the sun rises or sets at odd times and you see darkness or bright light which does not match your in game "local time" or in game "server time".

That other "secret" time is based upon a single centralised time for all the connected servers. I call it the "Central Server Time". It is roughly equivalent to Pacific Daylight Time or Pacific Standard Time.

This AddOn uses a simple trick: Just as the Central Server Time is standardised, so too are certain events, such as the start and end of the monthly Darkmoon Faire. These events match Central Server Time. The actual CST start and end times of these events are widely published. I take these times and then look at the start and end times for YOU. Thus I have an "offset". I then apply that offset against the standard published sunrise and sunset times and I also provide the estimated CST!

Naturally, on the cusp of "daylight saving" or "summer time" changeovers this AddOn might be out of whack for a short while. I look at your events calendar, travelling backwards in time, and base estimates upon the most recent known standardised event.
