Etherium: Dark Storm is a 3D Multiplayer Online RPG in-progress. Etherium will be unique to most RPG games, in that includes real time strategy elements, including a tile-based layout, leading of military units in certain sections, building structures, and the view being more top down, zoomed out. This gives the player a more world-type view. However, the persistent, online Etherium world will still be thousands of times bigger than what a single player can see at a time. Also featured will be atmospheric weather effects, trade, and more.

So smooth

New features include adjustable brightness on the sky (is that the moon behind those clouds?) and terrain blending between tiles. Those tiles don't seem quite so square now do they? And of course, the rain is still falling and making things look nice. As for the "behind the scenes" stuff I mentioned, a lot of work has been done on the networking code, both server and client side. With some luck, we might have a very, very alpha version by the next update... we shall see. :devious:
