Of course not knowing this persons hardware it's tough to gauge, however for that image @ that resolution to take 4 hours 39min to render is insane. He must be using a old @ss laptop or something, regardless of Soft shadows or receive shadows being enabled. I actually think without the author (presumingly Prof Sherman) posting his hardware specs as well as the other render settings this mini tutorial is doing more harm than good for the software. If I didn't know any thing about Terragen I would would pass on reading that render time alone. Imagine a potential customer reading that?

based on his render size I'd be willing to guess an underpowered old laptop myself.
