I was sick of not having a clock in our multiplayer server and the mod infrastructure doesn't seem to support collecting system time, so I hacked together something stupid.
VideoHow does it work? It is a separate Python script that runs on the system that is hosting a Factorio headless server. Upon execution it gets the current time, compiles a set of commands to place stone blocks at certain coordinates, then feeds those commands to factorio-init. Cron ensures that it runs every minute, or however often you want it to update.
This is quite amazing, in my opinion. Looks pretty good and should definitely be useful - especially to those who take a look and realize that they've been playing Factorio for the past six hours!
