I wonder if you could make the day gradually change to night? I have no idea how to do it, honestly Probably by doing some magic with the cubemap? Thinking out loud.
Don’t give up on your mafia game I will look forward for the next update.
Yes, @Thomas_Due_Nielsen gave a good option. This would mean you would need to stay within a single scene - which is a good thing, as you would no longer need to sync the game states between day and night.
