    When will this be in Real World date/time?

    Also, is there an online converter for Novia time to Real-World time and back again?

    Nice tool thanks!!!

    What about converting New Britannian time to Earth time though? It goes from Earth time to new Britannian time, but not the other way.

    I manually entered Earth time to figure it out...

    8/31/2020 18:00:00 (CDT/NBT) - this coming Monday at 6 PM CDT/NBT !!

    IS EQUAL TO:

    1/1/600 00:00:00
    Sunandai Janus 1, Wentru 600 PC Midnight 00:00:00


    So New Century celebration is on August 31 at 6 PM CDT/NBT

    Did I calculate that correctly?

    Perhaps we need a HUGE fireworks show in Brittany at that time, eh?

    Looks like we didn't have any nibbles on this one. Please contact me in a PM if you actually had something in the works.

    I'll have another screenshot/video contest in the future, but it'll be a much broader concept that wouldn't be limited to creating teams for fireworks. It'll be a much simpler concept that allows solo individuals to simply share any cool screenshots or videos related to broader categories of subject material. I'll try to have another contest ready ASAP which will run permanently along side the fishing contest as a weekly offering ;)
