    The Moon Mystery

    While the sun rises in the east and sets in the west the moon sets in the north. On this evening it seems to be undergoing a partial eclipse as well. Screenshot taken from atop Mount Tallac.



    And later as it sets behind the mountains across Lake Tahoe:

    i don't think its an eclipse I think its just the way the moon is done to show the phases.

    As for rising in the north...this is...erm...an...erm..alternate demention...yeah that's it... :huh:

    If that's meant to represent a moon phase I hope it's just a stopgap graphic because it makes no sense. Not that it's a critical feature to worry about at this stage.

    I guess the moon rises ... in the west!?

    Here is a screen shot of it rising over Cascade Falls on the western side of the lake:



    A later image:



    The moon then travels not too far above the horizon until it sets in the north. So this does indeed seem to be a bug.

    imo we need an astronomer in game to track the phases of the moon and other celestial bodies over the course of 1 game year.

    I myself with a minors in astronomy would love to do such a thing...please send an account ready to play to my email.






    p.s. in case this actually works, saweeeet!

    Well if they were going to to do a full moon cycle, it takes 19 years for the moon to be in the same spot and phase as it is today. Which was discovered a very long time ago.

    But yeah, having a crescent in the moon between full and half is not right.



    Oooh, trivia bonus. A week is 7 days long because that is about one quarter of a full phase cycle of the moon.
