Excluding occasional time travel, do you generally keep your game set at the correct time or have it off?

I set my clock about 3 hours early because I rarely if ever will play before noon but often play at night and needs things to be open late. In AC:GC and AC:CF, I just set my game to the correct time.

Does anyone else intentionally always have their clock set wrong?

No. I'd be playing at night all the time. I like morning times. More interaction with villagers then

"I set my clock about 3 hours early because I rarely if ever will play before noon but often play at night and needs things to be open late. In AC:GC and AC:CF, I just set my game to the correct time."
Same here! I used to have my clock set to the correct time all the time because it bothered me having it behind or ahead but now that I work all hours of the day and night I like to have my clock set a few hours behind that way everything will still be open when I play at night.

Yes, I usually play at the correct time in my main town. That's only because I have the night owl ordinance and my shops stay open longer. In my second town, Lilycove, I usually have my town four hours behind. That way I can play when its still light out.

I keep trying to at times but I quickly run out of things to do in AC on real time. I don't do crazy time traveling, I do day-day playing. Just skip to the next day and repeat.

My date is set one day ahead and it's 4 hours behind.  This way I can play just before the 5pm mail arrives and play in events.   It's a day ahead so holidays don't land on Thanksgiving, birthdays and Christmas eve. I like to spend time with the family.

I play in real time, but I occasionally time travel ahead a day when I'm too impatient to wait for something. Once I do what I need to do, I go back to the current day and time.

i try to play real-time in at least one town im playing in. i like to have one thats day-by-day and others i can skip a few, or even hardcore time travel (not that i do a whole lot of that though, too inconvenient )

it always ends up off by a few days or so, though. then sometimes ill try to slowly inch it back to the right time.

short answer is yes

but ive been debating moving it to a few hours earlier so I can turn on the beautiful ordinance and still have access to the shops, I play typically after 10pm local time so the shops require the night owl ordinance to be useful.

I always play with correct time, but I have the Early Bird Ordinance set and usually just play on the bus. Once I start driving, I'll probably change the time more frequently.

I adjusted the time, but I cant bring myself to remove the night owl ordinance. Its just so conviente, the shops are open basically my whole shift now, which is super helpful cause I need to sell beetles etc with retail. so idk, maybe more adjusting to fix it? idk I cant handle the pressure.

I time travelled all the time when I was a kid playing GC.  These days, however, I very strictly play at the current time and the current time only.
