overviewer provides great output - awesome lightning and nice deep zoom, but at high price - daymap-only: ~500mb size, ~1:30h to render

mcmap is really fast, maybe 10min and 25mb for all 3 maps (day/night/cave). but it has inferior deep zoom, lightning is awful imo. and standard terain.png is inferior

mcmap render
overviewer render

i haven't used tectonicus (as i got the render from here), but i'm sure, overviewer won't help much in terms of render-time and render-size. on the other hand, mcmap will bring lightspeed render-time but in terms of quality this will be at least 2 steps back. you can't use this for premium for sure...

Yeah I've been playing with both. My initial tests show Overviewer as being faster than Tectonicus by quite a bit and does produce very nice maps. I'm thinking this will be the way to go as mcmap is just a little too ugly even if it means people have to wait a little.
