I am remaking my entity clock, I have had a working clock face on Australia (old Adriania) for literally years now and I am ready to put one on Earth. But the system has broken down.
A clock should be fairly simple, you just put in the specific angular velocity and away it goes, but its not happening.
Seconds are good, and thats it. But minutes and hours are non-existent.
Angular velocity refuses to accept a value smaller than 0.01 degrees either by directly typing numbers or via script.
It feels like we are at mercy of Hifi’s inbuilt fudge factor that thinks zero is actually 0.0017 and thats where the inconsistency and inaccuracy that almost drove me out of Hifi, lives.
Now I believe that same inaccuracy thinks 0.01 deg/sec is actually zero. (I could be wrong)
I have been here long enough to accept that we cant have everything all at once, there are a lot of corners that have to be cut and perfection is something for the future, It is more important to get features up and running than it is to polish what we have. Thats ok I have learned to live with this.
Hifi is a difficult balance between stuff that works and stuff that goes boom so some things have to be sacrificed for the overall stability of the beast. But 0.01 is not a scary number, if we cant get down to 2 decimal points then we have severely limited ourselves. and I have to ask this…
Why are we given 4 decimal points on the GUI if we cant work with 4 decimal points?
It wont even let me put the value in now, where once it did.
Yes I had a working clockface for some time but now it seems impossible to do.
But I have to ask, am I doing something wrong, is there a way to dial in and angular velocity of 0.0083 degrees/second?
