Sky client

Thanks to the work of quite a few people, especially Emajekral and Schmurk, now we have a sky dome, and a much larger viewing distances and viewing angle.
Everyone is very happy with it, and we hope to make it the next official client. There are some more tests to be done, but things are coming up nicely.

People with slower machines might have to use the 'standard' mode, where the camera angle is limited, but they will still benefit from the new light colors, which are much better than what we used so far. For example, the light color changes at dusk and dawn.

It is really amazing to see how much our little game evolved. Here are two screenshots, the first being about 5 years old, and the second is with the new client (pre release).

So you can now see a lot further which from the screenshot looks great. Although if other players and creatures can only be seen from 12 squares away its going to look really odd having a detailed - but seemingly unpopulated world visible. Do you have any intention of increasing this distance with the new client?

I started playing this year only. I wish i started earlier. I've been using Linux only for so many year now and it is really hard to find good quality games that run on Linux. EL was the first online game I try and I'm really amazed by the size of the community.
Maybe you guys should discover a Continent 3. ;)

Thanks Radu,

Best Regards,
Hussam.
