For housekeeping purposes, the date is formally written like so:

Monday, 9th of Simuary, 2416 C.E.

a.k.a. Monday, January 9th, 2416 Common Era.

The Sims calendar year is based on the Gregorian calendar, but because the planet rotates around a different star than Sol, I’ve made some changes.

In my stories, with few exceptions, the dates will be written like so:

Monday, Simuary 9, 2416
