There is a trophy described as follows:
Experience 1001 nights in the game
My question is, does the day/night cycle need to be enabled to achieve this?
I know it may seem obvious to assume it does, but it could also quite easily be possible that there is always a constant counter in the background that tracks the day/night cycle, and thus could still count towards the trophy, even it the actual visual event does not occur.
From what I can tell, unlocking this could typically take between 70 and 150 in-game hours on a single map. So it's not something I can easily test for myself to find out the answer. My preference is to play with it disabled, which is why I want to know if I need to switch it back on to unlock the trophy.
Note, that 1001 nights does not mean 1001 days passed on the in game calendar. This is evident from both my experience in game play, and research on the internet.
