About this mod

Drastically speed up time while a key is pressed, a more natural way to wait than the vanilla wait menu. Also configure the normal timescale.

Permissions and credits
Pass the Time

This mod allows you to drastically speed up time while a configurable key is pressed down. Pressing control along with the hotkey allows you to speed up time even more. This provides a more natural way to wait than using the vanilla wait menu. It also allows you to configure the timescale used during normal gameplay, and provides an option to adjust fast travel time proportionally with the normal timescale.
"Fast Forward" mode changes the Timescale global variable, which determines how fast time passes in the game, when you press down the hotkey (Y by default), then changes it back to normal when you release the key.
Vanilla Morrowind uses a timescale of 30, which means that 30 in-game seconds pass for each second of real time (i.e. time passes 30 times faster in-game than it does in real life).
By default, this mod sets the timescale to 360 in Fast Forward mode. In other words, it speeds up the in-game passage of time to six minutes per second. Press down control+hotkey to enter Turbo mode. By default, the timescale in Turbo mode is 3600, or one hour per second.
The Fast Forward, Turbo and normal timescales are all configurable in the Mod Config Menu, and you can set them to whatever you want.
The hotkey itself is also configurable, and you can configure the mod to display a message whenever the timescale changes.
Another option in the MCM allows you to change how much time elapses during fast travel (e.g. boats and silt striders) proportionally with the normal timescale. It does this by changing the fTravelTimeMult GMST. For example, changing the normal timescale from 30 to 6 means that the boat ride from Ebonheart to Sadrith Mora will take only two hours instead of the vanilla 11.
I highly recommend using Clock Block with this mod, so you can see what time it is as you wait (configure Clock Block to display in-game time rather than real time).
Use a mod management tool such as Wrye Mash, or just copy the MWSE directory to your Data Files directory.
This mod requires MGE XE and the latest version of MWSE 2.1. Just install MGE XE and run MWSE-Update.exe to download the latest build.


Pass the Time should be compatible with just about anything that's not a timescale mod. Don't use this mod with Dynamic Timescale. That mod incorporates the functionality of Pass the Time, implemented slightly differently due to how that mod works.
Version History
Version 1.2.1 - 2021-07-14
   - Fixed a bug where, with a recent MWSE update, custom timescales (changed from default settings) would not be applied.

Version 1.2 - 2020-06-06
   - There are now two speedup modes: fast and really fast (both are configurable).

Version 1.1 - 2020-05-31
   - Added an option to adjust time elapsed during fast travel proportionally with the normal timescale.
   - Changes to the normal timescale are now effective immediately.
   - It's no longer necessary to restart Morrowind when changing the Fast Forward hotkey.
   - Timescale will now revert to normal when opening the menu (to avoid getting temporarily stuck in Fast Forward mode).
   - Improved the appearance of the Mod Config Menu and its descriptions of the mod's settings.

Version 1.0 - 2020-05-29
   - Initial release.
Thanks to OperatorJack's Security Enhanced (a mod I highly recommend, by the way) for clueing me in about how to allow the player to configure the hotkey.
