Hi! Back on MTS!

This is a very small fix for an annoying bug that causes timed events such as Aging and Aspiration Decay to stop working forever on specific lots or neighborhoods.
This will fix lots in which this bug is present and prevent it from ever happening again (or in the first place)

Technical details:

It seems like sometimes the time in TS2 starts skipping seconds, causing it to never hit 0, therefore breaking controllers that rely on things happening at certain hours of the day or every hour, like aging, permanently on the lot.

This mod makes it so that every time there's an hour or minute change the seconds will start from 0, therefore fixing and preventing these problems.

Thanks for fixing this because it has bugged out a few of my towns on my old computer.

Do you have any idea if this fixes season "day" progression? At least once a season in every household it doesn't progress overnight and, because I play my households evenly by season, really screws up with my stuff.

Whaaaat? I just thought that's how the game worked (always skipping 0) how crazy!
