Seasons tied to pakset
« on: March 02, 2013, 04:01:47 PM »
I think that it would be good if paksets would have own determination of months for seasons.

With this, in simuconf would be following lines:

spring_months=3,4,5
summer_months=6,7,8,9
autumn_months=10
winter_months=11,12,1,2

or

spring_months=3,4,5
summer_months=6,7,8
autumn_months=9,10
winter_months=11,12,1,2

or so.

This example is tied (more or less) to Central Europe. It means it could be used in Pak128.CS or Pak128.German or Pak64.HU-PL.
But Japanese or American paksets would have set months differently.

Current setting of seasons is really not the best.

Not to mention Australia, South Africa and South America...

I am sorry ... I know that Australian pakset was in development for some time ... but I did not find a mention about development of pakset for Australia, South America and Africa (South or Northern ... or even Central ... in all three parts seasons may be different).

And of course, there may be different in seasons between plains of Brasilia or Argentina on east of South America ... and tops of mountains on west.

But really, I beg your pardon for no mention to other parts of world.
