Can you make a day/night cycle based off real life?

Hey, is it possible to create a day/night cycle that is based off real life? So if it is night time in real life, it will be night time in-game etc.

Hi! It should be possible. Lets say you have already a day/night cycle setup like this tutorial which it makes it rotate slightly every tick depending on a variable called “SunSpeed”. You would need to change the setup so a single variable sets the rotation of light/sun. Ideally you end up with a float variable that when its value is 0 = day and 1 = night.

After you achieve this you only need to get the current time and interpolate the values. (ex. 12:00 = 0 to make it day and 24:00 = 1 to make it night). Hope this helped you ^^
