NOTICE - it was 90% night 10% day
I was happy that i came out from surface warned by this sound because i wiold be dead with my dino and bulbdog.

Hello and thank you for reading. Since patch 314.3 my day night cycle is backwards. It is dark during day hours 6am-6pm and light during dark hours. Please note that I am aware of seasons and these screenshots are taken during the daytime hours of 50/50 season (normal hours). Please halp.


  • Day and night lighting is backwards
  • Flickering between day and night during earthquakes
  • 90/10 day/night will be dark 90% of the time and visa versa.
  • I've created a single player game and it functions as expected, light during daytime hours and dark during nighttime hours.

Yea I ran into the same problem. I burned up at 0130am when it was 10/90. My server is also skipping the 9th day of the 10 night cycle. So day xxxxx8 at midnight turns into day xxxxx0 0:01. Effectively removing one whole day of 10/90. I am on an official server.

I've not been on the surface

On the surface its quite random. You can go there when there is 18:00 and survive. But at 00:00 or few seconds after you can hear the sound or change from nigt to day (if it works properly the sound comes at 5:53). And then you have about 30-60 seconds to escape from it or you gonna die. 

Im visiting surface regularly. The mess with day/night cycle was made after last patch.

Can confirm bug.  I just died along with my dino on surface. Flames started at 0100hrs and it was a 50-50 day/night cycle.  A few hours before that I had arrived at 0300hrs on a 10-90 day/night cycle and thought it was strange that the flames were up already. Dismissed it as possibly my time being jacked up. No sir, them flames flared up like the devil himself had appeared. This is on Official Servers v314.5.
