Blog Post: Here's to the Night

Fernehalwes shows us what beauty befalls Gridania when the sun goes down and gives us a look at the biggest celestial body closest to us.  How will moon phase affect Final Fantasy XIV?  Dicsuss in the Zam Forums!

"Hello all!
Fernehalwes here.

Now that we?ve finished tidying up after Yoshi-P?s little smash session with the Hammer of the Gods, I can finally bring you some screenshots from the new and improved Beta version.

As many of you may recall from the Alpha version walkthroughs released last month, we had yet to introduce the passing of time, so all the footage you saw took place in the day.

Our programmers, however, have been busy working behind the scenes, readying the realm for nightfall...and here?s an exclusive first look!

still too much light, I'd like to see a more realistic lighting implementation.

It has the potential to make for so many useful game mechanics and dramatic sights

still it looks somewhat better than 1.0
