Leap years are peculiar to a planet named "Earth" in the Sol system. Since this planet does not appear in the Kosmor universe, I would not expect leap years. The fact that years are 365 days long is itself a remarkable coincidence. Perhaps the Kosmor universe does not exist because of random chance but was created by an intelligence! There have been rumors of a powerful race of super-beings at the center of the galaxy, named House Centaurus.

i dont remember if you were here (i think not) when maeli answered a question about this... but i dont know if im right...

(we had a nice RPG styled story about why there were 365 days and all)

@Keule: well, yes and no - am part way through making a javascript

kosmor<=>real life

date converter -- as i have just made a tool to calculate the time taken to fly a course given:

a) number of LY
b) jumpdrive (yes/no)
c) if b) = yes, how many days until you can next jump

and wondered if maybe i could integrate a tool where it tells you both the kosmor date and RL date you arrive, without having to specify the original date, all automagically with the javascript date functions, and a little converter

if anyone wants the use of this tool, or indeed wants to add the tiny 3 line html/javascript widget to their website (only number of days atm - not the date of arrival for the time being), please send me an IGM



edit:
found it:
http://www.kosmor.com/forum_int/viewtopic.php?t=6063

it's not really all that clear what the answer from maeli was ^^
