Right so I always thought Sims 4's days were too fast and unimpactful. The consensus for a long time has been 1 Sim minute = 1 real second.

That's not actually true. In the Sims 4 (and you can time it yourselves). 1 Sim minute = 1.5 seconds. Meaning days are 36 Minutes long.

Personally I like GTA V's time scale of 1 day = 48 minutes. So here is how to change that.

With MCCC click on a computer and open the MC command center panel.

Eg default is 25 milliseconds per Sim second. Long story short there are 60 Sim seconds in a Sim minute (just like in real life).

So to save you the math headache here is how you calculate that.

**1st we need to convert milliseconds to seconds. **

Eg 25 (default value). 1 second = 1000 milliseconds so 25/1000 = 0.025.

**Now that we have that we can calculate how many real life seconds pass for every Sim minute.**

Take your value, in this case 0.025 and x it by 60 (Minutes). This = 1.5. Meaning for each Sim Minute that passes, 1.5 real Seconds pass.

Now x that by 24 (hours) and you get 36 Minutes for each Sim day.

To get GTA V's time or how ever long**you** want a day to last we can work just backwards to make it easy.

Take the amount of time in minutes you want a day to last, in this case I want a day to be 48 minutes long.

**48**/24(hours) = 2 (Minutes) for every Sim hour that passes.

2/60(Minutes) = 0.0333333

0.033333 x 1000 (milliseconds) = 33.333

**Unfortunately** we can't add decimals so lets round it down to **33**. **This is the value you put in**

A value of 33 means that for every Sim Minute, 1.98 seconds pass (which is close enough to 2).

A value of 33 means that 47 Minutes and 31 seconds will pass for each Sim day, which is what I want.

0.033333 x 1000 (milliseconds) = 33.333
