Alternatives to Easifill (other than plaster)

Another week and all the boarding will be done one the new shower room I'm working on. Last time I did any drylining I used EasiFill to skim the joints and it did make life "Easi" (cringe...). I also used finishing plaster in parts and found this much harder work, plus it didn't sand very well.
Anyone got any alternatives to the rather expensive Easifill?
Cheers

Presumably as a shower room you're going to tile it? You can tile straight onto plasterboard in a shower room - this is how mine is.

Actually this is for the toilet cubicles and ceiling (5x4m), the 4 showers will be boarded with that plastic cladding "stuff". Basically think of a "shower room" in a youth hostel as opposed to a "shower".

Agree on the lack of need for plastering, butf you haven't already done your drylining, I wouldn't use plasterboard, it's not all that rigid or stable for tiling onto in an environment like a shower; plus if any water does manage penetrate through to the plasterboard, it spells disaster. Aquapanel or marine ply would be a much better bet; a lot dearer but less risky and will last longer.
