day/night

What specifically is the day/night cycle in Richmond?  ie When does day start and end?

 

I always seem to start out at night and it occasionally becomes day.  Night display is nice but is hard for me to see (vision issues).

Hi Jerry.  Night lasts about 12 minutes, day lasts about 20-25 minutes, so a full cycle takes 30-40 minutes.

In the next update we’ve also made nighttime a bit brighter to make it much easier to see things.

Thanks - does daytime start at specific clock times or is it tied to when the ride starts ?  i always seem to start at night, and since it’s hard for me to see, i’d rather start in the day. I’d really rather do the whole ride during the day, but I understand that it needs to be the same for everyone I guess.

A full cycle lasts 30-40 minutes, a persistent question…answered! Thanks!
