Cantr time revolves around a slightly different system than the real world: 20 days to a Cantr-year, 8 Cantr-hours per day, each of which is 36 Cantr-minutes long. The current Cantr-time can be found at the top of any Cantr page (not including the forums and wiki).
One Cantr-day is equivalent to one real-world day. So, every three real-world hours will result in one Cantr-hour 'ticking over'. Each Cantr-minute is equivalent to five real-world minutes. Cantr-years are used only for role playing purposes and character ageing. In other words,
- 1 Cantr Year = 20 Earth days
- 1 Cantr Day = 1 Earth day
- 1 Cantr Hour = 3 Earth Hours
- 1 Cantr Minute = 5 Earth minutes
- 1 Cantr Second = 5 Earth seconds
A Cantr-date is a daily-incrementing number. Time and dates are referred to in a format such as "1247-7". This indicates that it is the 7th hour of the 1247th day.
Each Cantr-day begins at Cantr-hour zero which occurs at real-time 01:00 GMT. Each Cantr-hour then begins every three real-world hours, on the hour, thereafter (Cantr-hour 1 begins at 04:00 GMT, Cantr-hour 2 at 07:00 GMT, and so on).
Each day your character will auto-eat at approximately 1:06:00 Cantr-time. Tiredness resets once every Cantr hour .
Progress on the projects in which your character is participating will occur each hour at approximately two Cantr-minutes past the Cantr-hour.
Land based traveling will progress at approximately thirtyone Cantr-minutes past the Cantr-hour.
Boats move at approximately twentyseven Cantr-minutes past the Cantr-hour.
A character can attack another character or a pack of animals only once per day. To be precise, you can attack on the next day at the same hour but after 12th minute of that hour; for example, if you hunt anytime during the 4th hour of day 4319, you will next be able to hunt at 4320-4:12.
(Original Source: Age)
Age works a little differently in Cantr. Every character begins life at 20, and ages one year for every twenty real-life (and in-game) days. A character that has existed since 1000, for example, will turn 34 on 1280. A character's exact age is visible only to that character's player, but his or her approximate age is visible to all, in their character description, as "A man in his twenties," "a woman in her fourties," etc.
