as a further update to this, still hoping to see the time appear.
It would be nice to able to step through time using UI keys in a set incement, like hours or minutes
that lets us do sun studies really fast, at the moment the jump in time seems random (based on graphics card speed ?)
to be able to set a step in hours, step in 30 minutes, step in 15 minutes etc would be very handy
something in scene preferences (saved with file) would be fine.
