Realtime fast-forward resting/loitering

It would be nice to actually see what is happening while you are resting. Black screens is so 90s :)

Lets see the sun travel the sky, moons float around, darkness turn morning..

We already have a command to speed up the time, and to me it works quite reliably.

So it might be possible to simulate the world while your hp etc is recharging?

Loiter in a city and see citizens run on speed around you.
Etc..

Please :)

Ps: we might call it tedious resting mod 😂

Call it tedious resting. Make sure you can't disable it.

Well, thats the name Ive proposed :D
And its fast forward... id like it to be comparably fast as standard resting, so there would be no need to disable it, other than low end PC struggling to simulate the world - which I doubt will be the case, as I can run the time so fast on my old pc the sun just orbits in few moments.

Loitering would work, but resting often teleports you to a bed which would not really be compatible. Also staring at walls doesn't seem too interesting. :)

It's also typical to close your eyes to sleep (unless you suffer from nocturnal lagophthalmos), so if the game stays in first person view (which I assume), I don't think it would actually improve RP experience...
Maybe if you're a vampire ? :?

Well... so lets detach the camera and put it 50 or 100 metres up when outside?
Inside, its complicated, I agree :X It would require a load to the outside, and thats not good.

So keep it only for exteriors.

It would be really nice. To see the sun moving etc...

As hazelnut said, maybe just for loitering... would make a sense.

I think this is basically a good idea.
For loitering, there seems to be a consensus.

For resting, simulating the outside world - without displaying it to the player - would be a good addition because of problems like determining if you got caught when resting where you were not supposed to.
