Returns a timestamp value for the specified or current time.
timestamp = time([dateTable])
This function is Lua's standard os.time, shifted into the global namespace.
- Optional Table - Table specifying a date/time to return the timestamp of; if omitted, a timestamp for the current time (per the local clock) will be returned. This table must have fields
day, and may have fields
isdst. For a description of these fields, see the Lua reference manual.
- Number - A number representing the time as a number of seconds since the epoch.
/run print("Current Time: " .. time())
Current Time: 1118722038
- If not given any arguments,
time()will return a value based on the local clock, so it is not synchronized among clients.
- Consider using GetServerTime instead if you would rather have a value based on the server clock, which IS synchronized among clients.
