I understand the reason for the fast cycle but I dont agree or like it. I mean the game is hard, hard to get started any way. I am sure once you are set up with a place and sleeping bag its a different story but I am finding it very hard because I get killed by others all the time for no reason and when I try to explore I run out of food and so on so I am stuck in this cycle and the day and night cycles are making this so much harder.
I would recommend that they be extended drastically. I mean there is no reason why people wont notice glitches if the day cycle lasts 30 mins or an hour however the accumulative affect for players like me is that I’ll walk away from the game. I’ve come back to this game tonnes of times over the last few days only to be killed over and over and over and night time is making that so much harder and as a result I am taking another break now and will probably start playing again tomorrow or at the weekend.
I will say though that if this is happening to me, and I am a patient gamer (and an old gamer) who loves testing games and new concepts, its happening to others
