How to make a Working Clock

Ok, this is possibly one of the hardest guides I’ve made.

First, make your basic clock:


The Hour Hand

Make a Trigger Loop like this:


(60 seconds → 1 hour in Gimkit :slight_smile: )

Now, make a LONG METAL POLE for each of the Hours. For Hours 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, and 11, make sure they aren’t visible on game start.

Metal Pole Settings

Hour 12:

Hour 1:

Hour 2:

Hour 3:

Hour 4:

Hour 5:

Hour 6:

You get the procedure.

Wire a Lifecycle to your Trigger Loop, Triggering it.

Now, make a Property like this:

Make a Trigger like this, triggered by the channel “Hour”:

You’re done with the Hour Hand!

(Will look something like this:)

Also, you can choose how long it takes!

The Minute Hand

Make the same thing as the Hour Hand Poles, just with smaller, shorter poles and black them in color. Also, make them deactivate and activate on min(5 sec intervals).
Example:

Again, make sure only the top hand is visible on game start. Make a Property like this:

A Trigger Loop like this:

So yeah, almost the same thing as the Hour hand.

Let’s go on!

Trigger that receives on “Minute”:


Again, wire a Lifecycle to the Trigger Loop, and you’re done!

Are your huge talons hitting CTRL+Enter on accident? That’s the way to post something without hitting the post button.

This will be interesting…at least you don’t have to save the draft!

That might be what is doing it. Maybe just be more careful when touching your keyboard?

Yeah… I know…
Also, I’m NOT doing the minute-by-minute, only the five-minute intervals.

The clock can be smaller, right?

That would be interseting…

Do you mind if I make a guide on that sometime? (This could literally mean in a few years)

I’ll probably add it. I just won’t make it myself.

Are you going to include the events for each time zone? Or just the clock?I feel like the hands could be metal poles, one short, one long, one thin.

It’s too late! I already ran away! And I’m not gonna get eaten by you, @Blizzy , again!

Ok, this is possibly one of the hardest guides I’ve made.

Does this mean this may get a difficulty rating of 10/10, possibly 11/10!?

No. It just takes a lot of time.

if it’s repetition, it isn’t too hard. (at least it’s easier than recreating stardew valley even though you haven’t even played it)
