I’m not sure if this is what you’re asking for, but here:

print(math.floor(os.time() / 86400))
-- Or
print(math.floor(os.time() / 60 ^ 2 / 24))

Got the formula from just converting it one unit above .


Try something like this.

-- Lets put a starting number to keep track of the days the player has been on
local days_on = 0

-- Loops this script forever
while true do
	-- lets increase the value of everyday the player has been on by 1
	days_on = days_on + 1

	-- now lets print the days the player has been on
	print("You have been on for " .. days_on .. " days.")

	-- Every 24 hours, log a day depending on whether the player joined (86400 seconds)
	os.execute("sleep 86400")
