Rendering GI for the scene in resolution around 128000x128000 image is not fast.

The lighting is pretty much perfect in the environments and pretty much looks stable without that horrible crawling of light and shadows.

Considering that there is no console game which has more texture data I do wonder this comment.
Actually I'm pretty sure that only game which games currently close in textures are flight simulators with texture packs.
Baked GI?
