gamemaster Gamemaster, It's too bad you felt the need to make a snarky comment.
BlameTheParrot Some people have suggested a setting that automatically switches your camp from day to night mode when your energy fills up. This would be useful for when you forget to switch at night. However, with the slider system, there would be no "night mode." So it would be all on you to accurately predict how long you will be away from the game.
Every time I buy a new piece of equipment, it takes me 10 minutes to rearrange both day and night to fit it in (in order of strength.) 10 minutes may not sound like a lot to you, but when you have purchased hundreds of equipment, it really starts to add up for the most boring part of the game. I would rather spend my time digging.
And sometimes I want my camp energy to fill up in half an hour, sometimes one hour and sometimes two or four. But switching gear from half an hour to four hours is tedious...especially when you have been playing for 4 years and you have done it thousands of times.
A slider bar, to set the amount of time you plan to be away, is the perfect solution.
Another person suggested a box pop up when you click the switch system that asks how long you plan to be away. That is an excellent suggestion as well.
