I use the time warp feature in my timelines, but I have recognized two bugs
With the time warp feature switched on, the values in the time axis are wrong, when I move the timeline over the border of the time warp area → please see video Wrong_Time_Axis_with_time_warp.mkv
With the time warp feature switched on, the values in the time axis disappear, if I zoom in into my timeline → please see video “Missing_Time_Axis_with_time_warp.mkv”

Thanks for bringing this up, and extra thank you for the videos - awesome that you recorded them!
Yep, this is a clear case - it seems to also disappear when the timeline is zoomed in a lot, inside a day or so.
For this one, it would be super helpful if you can send over a .pap file with a timeline where this happens. I’m not 100% sure what’s causing it.
I’ve reduced the document to the absolut minimum. The bug is still there:
Charaktere.pap (58.4 KB)
And I’ve found yet another bug. If you zoom out in the timeline as much as you can, Papyrus crashes
Yep, I got the same crash!
Thank you! I couldn’t solve this immediately, so I’ll dig in and get back to you as soon as I have anything.
Thanks for the patience - I think I’ve got it down.
It looks like the dates going haywire is caused by the Timeline trying to lay out the years. The math doesn’t work out in a nice way, because of the long Time Warp, and a long period of emptiness after:
In this screenshot, the red area in the center is the time warp, and on both sides there’s a lot of time without events.
Do you have planned events there, or could the Time Warp be extended to close these gaps?
It’s a good idea to take a backup of your project before you try this fix out - in case you want to go back later on.
Here’s a tutorial on backups: Backups
And here’s what it looked like to me after I extended the Time Warp:
I’ve noted that this misbehavior happens, but I don’t have an immediate fix for it in mind.
