Part Time Jobs: Remove "Report from Time"
When a game is new and has limited content, developers sometimes deliberately introduce delays into the game to try to make the content last longer. When a game matures and has plenty of content, as Mabinogi has been for several years now, those delays should be removed.
One such delay occurs in part time jobs. A part time job becomes available at its "start time", and must be turned in between the "Report from time" and the "End time". The "Report from time" is anywhere from 2 to 5 in-game hours after the "start time", meaning the player is sometimes standing around with the task finished, waiting for the "Report from time" to arrive. That's no longer necessary. Please let us turn in the part time job immediately and get onto our next task. Mabinogi is now a sufficiently complex game that we are not going to run out of things to do if you let us turn in the part time job immediately.
The fast way to implement this change is just to change the "Report from time" on each job to match its "Start time". Longer term, you could delete all the code that deals with the "Report from time". It's a complex game. Surely a change that lets you simplify the code is good for the ongoing maintenance of the game.
