Day and Night Cycle
The Day and Night Cycle is an aesthetic feature visible on the surface. The day and night cycle affect the appearance of animals and hostile creatures depending on the time, and runs on a continuous cycle. The cycle starts at day, goes to dusk, then night, then dawn, and starts repeating from there.
A Clock is visable on the HUD located in the top center of the screen sandwiched by the player's health and mana indicators and moves in real time to indicate the current time of day. It even works underground as well so players will know what light level they'll be wandering into when they return to the surface.
Hostile Creatures and the undead spawn during the night and will catch unwary players by surprise.
Players are advised to build shelter for themselves and craft plenty of Torches to illuminate the areas around them when night comes.
