    From what I understand the Physically Based Sky is intended to be the future. They are also working on Volumetric Clouds and Cloud Layers.

    but that's for high definition, not for mobile which was the main use of these packages

    Thank you, Andre. If you have moved on perhaps this is the best thing to do. Why did Unity asked you to make changes? Did they ask you to support the new render pipelines, perhaps?

    Given that this might be the sunset of this asset, I'd like to publicly thank @PanicEnsues for years of support of his fellow users, including me, in this forum. Your answers were always fast, well informed and detailed. Thank you for disinterested support!

    You're quite welcome, glad I was able to pay forward some of the great Unity Forums help I've received over the years!

    And thanks to @andererandre for making this plugin; it saved me a ton of work on my last game and was quite easy to work with.

    Knowing what the actual error is (and the code that caused it) would be kind of essential to helping with any debugging.

    This function will convert a float hour to a 24-hour time string:
    Code (CSharp):
    1.     public static string HoursToTimeString(float hour)
    2.     {
    3.         var ts = System.TimeSpan.FromHours(hour);
    4.         string val = ts.Hours.ToString("00") +
    5.             ":" + ts.Minutes.ToString("00") +
    6.             ":" + ts.Seconds.ToString("00");
    7.         return val;
    8.     }

    Add this script as a component to the UIText object you are using to display hours or minutes:

    Code (CSharp):
    1.     public class CurrentTimeInText : MonoBehaviour
    2.     {
    3.         public enum TimeSection { Hour, Minute};
    4.  
    5.         public TimeSection section; //This is to select if you want the text to show hours or minutes from the editor
    6.         private TOD_Sky TodManager;
    7.         private Text Text;
    8.  
    9.         void Awake()
    10.         {
    11.             var tod = GameObject.FindGameObjectWithTag("TimeOfDay");
    12.             TodManager = tod.GetComponent<TOD_Sky>();
    13.             Text = GetComponent<Text>();
    14.         }
    15.  
    16.         void Update()
    17.         {
    18.             Text.text = section == TimeSection.Hour ? TodManager.Cycle.DateTime.Hour.ToString("00") : TodManager.Cycle.DateTime.Minute.ToString("00");
    19.         }
    20.     }

    I use separate UIText objects for hours and minutes so I can layout them easier, but you may not need it.

    You may need to add the tag "TimeOfDay" to the Time of Day object.

    Cheers.
