just a quick question, the tides and constellations are meant to be real in the game.

does this mean the sunrise and sunset times vary depending on the time of year, and if so then where in the world are they based on so that i can find the sunrise times for a mission.

if they aren't does anyone know what time sunrise and sunset are?

thanks.

I really have no idea, but why dont you just check it yourself?

Open the mission editor, put a player on the map, set the time of the year, set the time and see what happens.

yeah, its early. well at least in OFP. usually twilight by 0430 and morning light by 0530 and its up by 0800. it sets around...oh man I can't really think what it is as there are few dusk missions (mostly dawn)...maybe 1800 or so but i really dont know. i do believe that the solstices have oposite times and thus the whole year WILL change though it is a summer game/series. if someone could check to see if the equanoxes are perfect, thatd be great. btw measure it not by light but if the sun is actually up.

Hey, I know that this is an "ancient" post, but maybe it would be nice to throw a solution here just for the sake of completeness and in case someone may stumble upon it in the future.

Nowadays you can use BI's function BIS_fnc_sunriseSunsetTime to get the sunrise and sunset of the given date. There is an example in the documentation webpage but I'll duplicate it (modified) here for completeness.

private _riseSet = date call BIS_fnc_sunriseSunsetTime; // Get both sunrise and sunset

systemChat format["The sun rises at %1 and sets at %2", _riseSet select 0, _riseSet select 1]; // Print them out

Hope this helps someone in the future.
