Var Details

bucket_auto_reset

Boolean operator controlling if the timer SS will automatically reset buckets if it fails to invoke callbacks for an extended period of time

bucket_count

How many timers are in the buckets

bucket_list

List of buckets, each bucket holds every timer that has to run that byond tick

bucket_resolution

world.tick_lag the bucket was designed for

clienttime_timers

Special timers that run in real-time, not BYOND time; these are more expensive to run and maintain

hashes

A hashlist dictionary used for storing unique timers

head_offset

world.time of the first entry in the bucket list, effectively the 'start time' of the current buckets

last_invoke_tick

Contains the last time that a timer's callback was invoked, or the last tick the SS fired if no timers are being processed

last_invoke_warning

Contains the last time that a warning was issued for not invoking callbacks

practical_offset

Index of the wrap around pivot for buckets. buckets before this are later running buckets wrapped around from the end of the bucket list.

second_queue

Queue used for storing timers that do not fit into the current buckets

timer_id_dict

List of all active timers associated to their timer ID (for easy lookup)

Proc Details

get_timer_debug_string
