;If using Custom type, offset from UTC in hours (can be negative as well)
;Offset = 0

;Possible values: Local, Custom, Static
Type = Local
;If using Custom type, offset from UTC in hours (can be negative as well)
Offset = -2
;If using Static type (Hour value always the same on every server start), the value (0-24) to set the Hour to
