I haven't been retaining the old maps to date, but saving one occasionally might be possible. The maps are currently take up the following space:

Creative Day/Night with 8 zoom levels - 387MB / 154MB
Survival Day/Night with 6 zoom levels - 389MB / 154MB

On the survival server, I've considered playing around with the softening on the closest zoom and possibly adding an extra zoom level while still maintaining a similar size. It means generating complete new rendering caches, so takes a bit longer than the 10-20 minutes the renders are currently taking.

BTW, the survival server map was updated yesterday, and the creative is being uploaded now - probably 1.5 hours away from being ready.

I'll do a player only render today/tomorrow and add you then Misnik.

Updated map renders for the Creative & Survival servers (day only atm) are currently being uploaded, they should be done sometime around 6pm AEST. Night time renders will likely follow tomorrow.

The new maps have additional viewable options now which include:
- Server Spawn Point (with world and render stats if you click on it)
- Players (positions and skins)
- Player Beds (positions with owner names)
- Signs that both start and end with one of the special characters (- ~ ! =)
- Portals (although they aren't working portals as such)

With the number of new members joining the server recently I've made the call to move to showing all players by default - it's and easier option and lets new players see where the more heavily populated areas are. If you don't wish to have your player or bed displayed, then please let me know and I can add you to a blacklist for the render process.

EDIT: Upload completed. You may need to refresh (usually F5) on the map to get the new version rather than the cached copy from your browser.

Cheers thermal.
Love seeing all players in the render. Some structures I had no idea who possibly created them before. Also gives a better idea on player numbers, even if some might not have been on for a while.

The stats that pop up when clicking on spawn should show the number of players who have logged into the server at least once. From memory it's ~125 on the creative and ~75 on the survival.
