Is there a way to skip night time? I've been playing for a couple of hours without any change. I would like it to become light again.
There are several threads about this bug on the game's sub-Reddit; here's one that discussed my particular issue.
John Seed's second forced mission (a mission you're forced to do once you reach a certain resistance level) pops you out at a certain time of day and leaves the game stuck there until you do some other mission that forces the time of day to advance.
Faith's first forced mission served that purpose for me. It's pretty easy to trigger her first mission, too; I don't think you even have to get to her first resistance level circle. Just wander around in her province and cause a bit of trouble, maybe blow up some property, then wait for one of her hallucinations to appear and try to talk to it. Walk through the cut-scene. Problem should be solved.
In total I've now suffered three
day/night cycle freezes
After completing John Seed's 2nd forced mission (above)
After completing The Admiral, the last mission in Skylar's quest line
I don't know what caused the third; I don't think it directly followed any mission. It may have been the result of quitting out of a Clutch Nixon stunt that I couldn't beat.
Any mission that has a cut scene that transports you in time should fix the problem (except, of course, for John's mission #2, which does the exact opposite and causes the problem):
- Any of Faith's forced missions
- Any of Jacob's forced missions
- Special Delivery
- Testy Festy
