    Is this for calendar management only or does it also affect the timers on effects and such? So if you want to hand wave 10 hours have passed can you do so and the effects that last 24 hours consume 10 hours of that?

    Right now, it just adjustments to the calendar.
    I wrote this with games in mind that have a time sensitive component like "Tomb of Annihilation"
    My goal is to eventually incorporate the effects as well, and to add a widget showing sun/moon position and maybe seasons

    Right now, it does add 6 seconds per combat round passed. Eventually I'll add an option to change that but it seems that rounds tend to be only 6 seconds in most games.

    You might want to look at the code I added to ClockAdjuster as it already does the round decrementation.
    It could make it easier for you to add something similar here.

    There is also Moon Tracker:

    Which you could leverage to handle moon phases.

    It would be interesting if there was something to pass the time, which is but at the same time not connected to the combat tracker.
    I'll try to explain what I thought:
    For example, let's say I am in a dungeon carrying a torch, but as we are in exploration I would not use the combat tracker, as I think of it to manage battles, so with this time control I could say that 1 hour and boom has passed! the torch goes out, the effect of a spell wears off and time advances and I don't have to worry about managing one more thing.

    I see what you are asking, however that would mean you would have to play in "real-time" where 1hr real is 1hr in game. Problem is that some skill checks, such as looking for traps, can take 10 minutes and such.
    With my ext, you can hotkey the commands and move time along with the amount of time you say has passed.
    For example, if they took a long rest, I'd have a hotkey for the command "/atm add hr 8"
