Timestamp options for log files

Priority:5 - MediumMileStone:(None)
Type:Feature RequestsSeverity:5 - Medium
Component:Tera TermStatus:Closed


Consider an option to use UTC time (or recognise and ignore DST (daylight saving time)) when timestamping log files so that logs crossing changes from standard to daylight saving times maintain consistent times.

Consider an option for timestamp format to use full MSB to LSB format which is good for sorting (combined log files) e.g. yyyymmdd hh:mm:ss.sss - there's probably a "standard" date/time format which makes sense. This is less important as it can be "fixed" in software which might be utilised to combine log files.

I second this request! The current log file timestamp is quite difficult to parse correctly in Excel and is not possible to parse (well, for me anyway) in KaleidaGraph. If you could have several options for the timestamp form that would be great, e.g. 1) yyyy/mm/dd hh:mm:ss.sss 2) etc. 3) more etc.

Thank you!
