The Forest Gametimescale Command


This command changes the scale of time (speed) for factors like day/night, your stats (hunger, etc) and the day number it is. Numbers above 1 will make time faster, numbers below 1 will make time slower. This does not change the speed that your character and NPCs process at, so you will still move at normal speed and NPCs will still act normal. Set to 1 for normal gametimescale.
