getting rid of the date system
I'm thinking of having a plot line that goes along these lines:
You're looking for treasure, and in the second half of the plot you get to play the part of the guy who burried it in the first place. It just sounds like a cool idea, but the date gets displayed at the bottom of the screen every time you warp into a system, so that kind of throws off the subtle balance.
I recall someone saying cröns don't work backwards, so is there some way I could scrap that string? Perhaps deleting the string altogether?
