RTT (Red Thread Time) also doubles as Ragnar Tornquist Time. One of the most important markers of which is Soon™.

RTG: Ragnar Tornquist's Gang ;)

As for Timezones well i still don't recognise UTC as i'm old school, so it's good old GMT for me. Or BST as it currently is, until the end of the month when the clocks go back an hour lol.

Living in a country that has different time zones has it's advantages, I guess, as we're used to converting between them...however, this EST and EDT thing is really new to me.  I don't remember having these before the last few years...and I still haven't figured out when I'm in EST and EDT.  I just know in the fall I have to set my clocks back an hour and in the spring set them forward an hour which annoys me greatly enough without having to try to figure out whether I'm 'in' daylight savings time or not.  My plan is to henceforth just say I am in the Eastern time zone and let everyone else figure out whether it's EST or EDT...like Ragnar said it's MY time zone and the only one that really matters on a daily basis.  ;)   (Until I have to try to figure out when I will be able to do something awesome like play my new DFC, then I'm in sad shape!)   :huh:

What I found frustrating when travelling around the US is moving between states that are technically in the same time zone but some have daylight savings time and some don't...so, you can cross the boarder and now the time's out of whack. Which can play merry hell when you have to be somewhere on time and you're not aware of the state's use of daylight savings :)

Agreed!  Arizona is the only continental US State that doesn't (Hawaii also doesn't, but that's probably not as big a deal).  What is even more confusing is Indiana where part of the state uses it and part doesn't!   :blink:

Norway, geographically, is in three time zones. Here on the west coast we're actually UTC (+DST when that's applicable), whereas in Eastern Finnmark they're UTC+2 (again +DST when applicable). So at least for one of the extremes, DST makes sense (but of course, for the other extreme...). I see it as more of a nuisance myself.

Can't wait to start downloading the game! Strictly speaking, it'll be midnight 22 October my local time. As luck would have it, 22 October is a public holiday :D 

 

I wonder how large the file size will be. Hopefully, I will be able to play when I wake up in the morning :P

Yes, it is a little bit confusing here in the US, but it is a lot better than it use to be. Every state use to have their own start and stop dates and even those could vary considerably from year to year and in some years they may chose not to observe it, all of which created a confusing mess for the country as a whole. Currently only Arizona and Hawaii do not observe Daylight Saving Time. Any state can opt out if they do not want to observe it, but those that choose to observe must start and stop on the exact same dates set by the federal government.

 

Actually, what I find more annoying is that some states in the lower 48 are divide into two different time zones. I guess the reason for that has to do with economic ties to businesses in a given time zone.

Probably around 5GB. That's including all voice files. We don't have a way to separate out different languages, unfortunately.

Due to English and German voices included, correct? Or are there even more languages at launch?

 

So that makes the full game 25 GB - even before French and Polish?

Some textures, voiceovers, music etc. can be reused, so I would expect the first episode to be a larger download than the consecutive ones. Maybe 20 GB in total.

Sometimes, it's due to the size/location of the state. Tennessee is wide, man. :)
