some aditional info

The timer is sort of placed on top of the map, and each time the first side of the timer passes over an area it raises the loot values in that area, and then when the timer passes with it's endpart it lowers the values again, that is why the width is important aswell.

I also had a friend make the image of the timer in mathematica i think, and here is the code he used if that could be of any help

Code:function LemniscateClock(StartTime,Duration,DoRender) % LemniscateClock(StartTime,Duration,Render) % Plots 3 Lemniscates (hour, min, sec) % at StartTime in minutes % for Duration in minutes % DoRender == 1 does render to animated GIF % -- Author --- % Marc falkao Falk, Entropia Universe %lemnisacte param a=1; %scale parameter for Lemniscate, not used atm l = 2*a*5.2441; %circumference std lemniscate t = 0:.01:2*pi; %time vector %timers d = 24; %total hours tim = d; %multiplier for min tis = d*60; %multiplier for sec %simple param handling if nargin < 1 StartTime = 0; %00:00 Duration = 10; %6 min DoRender = 0; %render off end if nargin == 1 StartTime = 2*pi/d/60 * StartTime; Duration = 10; DoRender = 0; end if nargin == 2 StartTime = 2*pi/d/60 * StartTime; Duration = 60 / Duration; DoRender = 0; end %define axis ax = axes('XLim',[-4 4],'YLim',[-4 4]); axis equal %== Clock == hc = rectangle('Position',[-sqrt(2)*a,-sqrt(2)*a,2*sqrt(2)*a,2*sqrt(2)*a],'Curvature',[1,1]); hold on % Plot the numbers 1-12 on the screen % --Declare variables to be used in the plotting the clock numbers Clk_fSize = 12; % controls the font size of the numbers of the clock Clk_fTheta = ((d-4)*pi/d/2:-2*pi/d:-3/2*pi)'; % sets the Theta for each number position, goes from pi/2 to -3/2pi Clk_fRad = sqrt(2)*a+.3; % sets the Raduis for each number position Clk_numbas = (1:1:d)'; Clk_nData = [Clk_fRad*cos(Clk_fTheta) Clk_fRad*sin(Clk_fTheta) Clk_numbas]; text(Clk_nData(:,1),Clk_nData(:,2),num2str(Clk_nData(:,3)),...
