All planets have day and night right? so why not have it in the game, according to when you play?

then there is the other factor that you have to cosider, temperature. during the night mars gets extremely cold, so it would be really cool if the maps were icy or it was raining or snowing or something. and just to get complicated there could be a temperature gauge.

just an idea any way, thanx.

This is a very cool idea! Maybe as the temperature goes down, the vehicles could lose acceleration (they can't gain speed fast). Also, most of us won't be able to go on at certain time of the day, so maybe it could be a server option as to what time of the day the game is at.

The night and day has been mentioned before, in-fact, flyclub designed a level with a day and night cycle that lasted for about ten minutes...I think. I don't think the cycle should take all day, maybe an hour or so. The temperature change is a good idea, not sure how possible it is. Ice has been mentioned before, though.

very good idea (although it had been mentioned :) it would be very difficult for Aubrey (in his current situation) to make a day and night transition in the game, making it last in ur real daytime and nightime isnt the dame as my daytime and nighttime....c wat i mean?  as for the ice same thig really, just hard to do and would take alot of work......good thoughts

It's not a good idea because people have different time zones unless it is considered that it will be in Grenwich Mean Time (which also happens to be General Martian Time), or the time that it ACTUALLY IS on Mars. IRL.

There must be a way to change the day and night off with the server settings. Good idea though. :)

How to change between day and night:
 
When making a world, copy it and change the skybox on one. Then, choose which world to host, the day one or night one. Problem solved.

So that someone in China will be playing the day-mode game at night? Not that efficient.

I suppose that there can be options or different perspectives.

Or time by the ones who hosts or maybe have marsxplr ask you what time it is and saves it to your account so it'll be timed by the day.

Well, this is fairly easy to do. All ya have to do is animate a point light to turn 180 degrees over a period of minutes
