How you explained the editing is exactly how I had tried it, and after testing last night I played through a couple night/day cycles and didn't notice any flickering at all.
As far as I could tell, visually it's made zero difference other than stopping night lights strobing like crazy.
It's amazing because it was so bad in some sections before, I'd just fast forward to morning. Now I can enjoy all hours again haha.
You guys are awesome, thanks so much for helping!
hey uh, I'm having the same issue and I couldn't fix it this way but you say it worked for you, would you mind uploading the timecycle xmls so I can see if that removes the issue for me too? I'd really appreciate it
