Hill shading is important to me.

I may have to stop upgrading if the slowness makes its way from beta into a regular release.  Thanks for the warning.

Ok, I take a look at the new hillshade. It realy look better, special in lower zoom levels.
But I agree to the answers before: It is mutch to slow, compared to what we have today.

For me, the new hill shading is far too dark and obscures detail in mountainous regions.
1. Pro | 2. Beta

Thanks for opinions.

Result: little lighter, compare to current public version is shading itself around 40% faster (previously 0.23 sec per 512x512 tile, not 0.14 sec). That's much I can get from it now. If this won't be enough, I'll consider some caching options.

At the Moment I can only test with Note 2. For me the speed is sufficient. nothing I can´t wait for.

Dark:
If I zoom out to 11 the darkness of shading is ok, looks nice. but if you zoom in to 14 or 15 it´s a bit too dark.
Is it pssible to make a slider as for  overlays, that users can set it for their own?
Regards J.

Hmm if we find some collective agreement, I may code different "darkness" for various zoom levels. It's not an unreal task. I usually rather wait on some field testing. So if you don't mind, wait on new 3.16.0 version and use it for a while. If after week or two, more people will agree that some changes in darkness will be useful, I'll do it.

And slider - I hope that such extra settings won't be really needed.

Jeep, different darkness according zoom level would be also fine for me.

While you're in there...   If you extended the shading to zoom level 17, even a little bit of it, I'd be a happy camper.
