Question re: Darkmoon Faire not in calendar

According to this bug report from about 2 years ago, the Darkmoon Faire doesn’t show up in the calendar because there is no data for it in the DBC files beyond 2010.

Can’t we send a packet to the client with the information from the game_event table so the client can then put it in the calendar? I don’t know much about packets so I figured I’d throw the thought out there.

click and some others were working on completely replacing the DBCs for events like this, but, once again, never followed through the research and actually implemented it…

Which DBC?

holidays.dbc. mostly.

ok thanks!

How does one convert the packed date in the DBC into something that is usable? How did Shauren do it in the post:
