Depending on how many cloud layers you have that doesn't sound too crazy at that resolution.

The focal cloud layer seems a bit fuzzy; maybe the quality tab settings were knocked (I see Oshyan already noted this. Sorry trying to play catch up on topics active), but in general I washed pretty shocked by the amount of detail here. The shapes all work with each other and there is even a level of illusion with direction between layers.

13 hours was for a 6000 X 4000. dual Hexcore 3.06ghz each.  settings AA 4, micro detail at .6 Everything else on default i think.
Sounds a bit slow for a dual hexa... But your clouds can slow it down for sure. Depend on the quality of them...

just a quick update.  I'm having lots of fun/frustration with trying to make those ultra red sunsets you sometimes see.  Would anyone know what mainly controls that lovely deep purple + red tones?  I've experimented with sun colour, but everything looks a bit fake.

Under Atmo check the Min tab and the Tweaks tab. There you can modify the colors.

Redsky Decay strength and/or color. But keep in mind these effects can be very strong with only small changes to the values, so take it slowly. :D I would switch to RTP mode in the 3D preview and make adjustments and see how it affects things in realtime.
