Elden Ring modder lets you skip ahead in time with a snap of your fingers

Elden Ring's Tarnished snapping their fingers.

When they’re not dreaming about a Netflix show set in the Lands Between, worrying about getting horse armour as DLC or trying to fight crabs in real life, Elden Ring players tend to spend a lot of time replaying the game.

Sometimes these playthroughs come with caveats or additional challenges to help make things more difficult, such as controlling The Tarnished with a drawing pad or only using one hand, or trying to avoid getting hit.

However, sometimes all players want out of a fresh trip through the Lands Between (aside from less grinding) is the chance to appreciate the beauty of Elden Ring’s environments at night, something a new mod should certainly be able to help with.

Are you looking forward to having this kind of power at your fingertips?

The mod in question is called ‘Pass time anywhere’ and is the work of modder pelooleq, whose previous work has improved Elden Ring’s dodging animations and made being fashionable in it easier.

This time they’ve decided to give The Tarnished the ability to control time via the finger snap gesture, in a move that, given the attitude some Elden Ring players have towards war crimes, definitely doesn’t have the potential to end badly.

At least the impetus behind pelooleq’s decision to create the mod is benign, with them declaring that they’re just sick of having to use Sites of Grace in order to explore at night.

The first of the two versions of the mod that are available is designed solely to cater to this desire, changing the time of day with each snap, with nighttime set to arrive at around eight PM and twelve noon marking arrival of peak daytime.

On the other hand, the second version of the mod is designed for those who dislike singing in the rain, with it both changing the time and, assuming you’re not in an area with pre-set weather, making sure that you’ll be greeted by sunny conditions wherever you jump forward in time.

Using this version, night and day will also arrive at slightly different times, with the former set to three AM and the latter breaking at three PM.

If you’re desperate to try out either of these powers yourself, you’ll first need to grab mod engine 2, with this being a requirement to get things working as they should.
