Just before it gets dark and just as its getting light, it seems the sky doesn't brighten or darken smoothly. Instead the sky color changes in a series of steps. Not a game killer, but rather jarring when so much effort went into making the rest of the graphics so nice.

It seems that sun position, sky and sun shadows are updated once per three seconds or so.
I hope that sky and day cycle is still in "work in progress" state.

This is subject of change, but not with any high priority. For sure it will not be fixed for beta.
