System Time

Overview

The System Time Node.

System Time is used for returning different individual parts of the current system time at the moment that the Node is evaluated. Values are returned as Integers or Floats, and therefore, have no inherent zero-padding, textual notation or suffixes.

When Smooth float value is enabled, the output values won't be rounded down, so if the current time is 1:45, the Hour output will be ~1.75.
