More information about the event: Studio Wildcard provides more information about the event in their official forum post. However, these are more hints than further information.

  • The event cannot be triggered before midnight.
  • The event can only be triggered once per save file, but then takes place twice. At midnight and at noon.

If server owners should decide to adjust the start time of the event, they must use the following parameters:

  • ?NewYear1UTC=1640995200
  • ?NewYear2UTC=1641038400

The number with the 10 digits after the “=” represents the time. To get the correct time, you can convert the time on the Epoch Converter website.
