I was hoping someone would be able to explain to me why TimeCurrent() used while defining an integer returns such a crazy value:

int TimeNow = TimeCurrent();
Print("TimeNow = " + TimeNow);


An example output:

TimeNow = 1423501132

This would be the time at 22:58:53.647.

Interesting isn't it?

Not interesting at all. It is expected

Read the documentation for datetime

TimeCurrent returns a datetime type
