I know that you can adjust the speed of the passage of time and also your walk speed, but I want to adjust the actual game speed itself. Basically, I want the entire game to run as if it were in fast forward mode. This means everything speeds up (character speed, passage of time, NPC movement, enemy movement, etc).

    @ Unionhawk, it's not a duplicate - he is not asking "How to change the date/time", he is asking how to make the game speed faster. – Jamd Dec 8 '13 at 7:00
  • Why do you want to do that? That would make the game unplayable. – kotekzot Dec 8 '13 at 9:06
  • @kotekzot How? If I increase it by a factor of 1.5, it will be fine. – oscilatingcretin Dec 8 '13 at 16:33

Console command: set timescale to <#>

Set the rate at which time passes (20 is the default, 1 is realtime)

Or this maybe this was what your where looking for:

Consol command: sgtm <#>

set global time multiplier

    sgtm! I just confirmed that it does exactly what I want. – oscilatingcretin Dec 8 '13 at 16:46
  • @oscilatingcretin oops, you're right. Apologies. – kotekzot Dec 11 '13 at 1:58

You can actually press Ctrl + Print Screen to increase the in-game speed of everything; even movement and time. This only works on PC of course. No need for consoles or mods!

    I looked this up, and while I don't see any official sources, there are a lot of people claiming this is an actual thing. Do you have a source to back it up? – Robotnik Sep 1 '17 at 3:42
  • does indeed work :) 2x the game is – Jamie Hutber Sep 29 '18 at 21:27
