Introduce Day and Night

I think introducing day and night changes into the game would make it much more interesting, it would give it more of an immersive feel. And then on top of that, maybe implement different weather changes. Maybe even make the changes school based. For example, occasional snow storm, thunder storm, lava or ash in the sky from volcanic eruption, Leaves flying through the air as if you're spending tomorrow underneath Bart's branches, sandstorms, and whatever a more creative mind could think of for death and myth. In my opinion, if you were to add day and night along with even simple climate changes once in a while, it would make this game more interesting and exciting than it already is.

No, it would ruin the theme of a lot of the areas. Night in the commons or mirage or day in marleybone makes no sense. Plus it seems like a bunch of extra unnecessary complexity and lag.

This such a lovely idea! I think this would improve the immersion even more, and make much more fun. It would probably also draw a lot of players to the game.

I disagree. For some of us, the additional animation causes severe lag. For instance, In Azteca, I could move around just fine, but once I completed that world and the Destruction from the comet hit, I can not move near as easy.

Since I am now dual boxing to help wizards on my second account, it becomes a problem. Wizards on first account are almost impossible to move while the wizards on 2nd account can run normally.

I don't think it should be added everywhere though, just Wizard City and maybe some house.

Could be fun if it was limited to WC commons area to enhance the seasons?

Other worlds? nope; agree with @Daniel Battleleaf

I like the sound of it as a personalized touch for castles. Ability to toggle time of day or even the cycle speed of daylight.

Hope to see you all in the Spiral!

I agree that this would be an awesome addition, but it would have to be certain areas. I also agree that the Commons would be an ideal location for seasons/time changes. (While yes, certain areas would be best served in their current forms. A sunny Polaris would be weird....

Yeah I didn't specify, but of course it wouldn't work in every world. Commons, of course. That would be a great place for it. Besides Colossus Bolevard, Nightside, Haunted/Dark cave, and Firecat Alley, I believe that all places in Wizard City could make this work ten fold. I don't know, I just think it'd be cool to have. I know it's a lot of extra time and work having to be out into the game but I just feel it would be really sweet to have that in the game.

It's not that it wouldn't make sense, because it would. I understand that keeping the themes going in the world are important, but it'd be cool to me to have a change. Idk maybe a trial and error sort of thing. Try it in Wizard City first and see how it goes.

I love the idea, but it would be a little hard to pull off.
First off, you need to consider the fact that not everybody in the same place at the world, like someone could be in North Carolina, and someone else could be in Washington State, so maybe it would be a universal timing for day and night, or everybody has their own individual day and night times.
Second off, some of the places in Wizard101 revolve their theme and uniqueness around the time of day, for instance, could you ever see Darkmoor when it's not night and everything isn't so, dark? I guess you could just make some places revolutionary with the aspect of day and night, and that might work.

Overall I like the idea, but it would be a little hard with it's bumps here and there, but it would still be possible. Also, weather could included in some areas just like your idea
