Penguin-Lib has a time unit system that is used by a lot of the blocks/machines or other concepts. Each unit is measured in, in game ticks and makes it an easy way to lots of configuration without having to code them all individually. To add time units you need to make use of the Penguin-Lib database and create a csv in
data/NAMESPACE/database/time_unit.csv, you can override existing ones if you use their relevant namespaces. Here's an example of the default values in Penguin-Lib itself.
Name,Duration three_minutes,50 five_minutes,100 quarter_hour,250 half_hour,500 hour,1000 half_day,12000 day,24000 week,168000 year,2880000
