Season switching (general)

I don't know if the old legacy globtime data is available inside Hafen custom clients.
If it is it would be helpful to know the globtime in relation to season-switching related gfx-changes.
The main target here would be the changing of the in-game day/night graphical-clock (as easy to spot change).
Note that season-switching could be a more or less a complete soft process.
Ie: Game settings (not just gfx stuff) could be slowly changed from current season-values to the next season-values. Making season switching a time-duration process.
As such, additional time info on other season-switching graphical-changes could show some light on the potential season-switching duration.
(Note: This in-game checking related to season switching is not something I will look into (at least not in the near future). Ergo: Someone else will need to look into this).

Update "Smoked Help" season changes

As of the update mentioned (see https://www.havenandhearth.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=39&t=68835), the total times for seasons have been given as Spring=10, Summer=15, Autumn=10, Winter=5 (real days). The start of the year (Spring) on the calendar is currently accurate (as long as the data is synched with the server), but the start dates of Autumn and Winter will remain off until the code that generates the calendar can be fixed. --MagicManICT (talk) 04:22, 31 July 2020 (UTC)

Note 1: The dates in this calendar are predictions. There accuracy is still considered a work in progress. (assumes season switch at start of new moon)
Note 2: Potential Game-server clock/time changes are not taking in account here. (Down time, Rollback, etc. Rare now a days).
Current Season calibration point: Friday, 21 February 2020 (ISO:2020-02-21 06:35:00) Season: Spring.
