Hi Ferry, Morten and Artur

 

As you know I'm architecto wroking in landscaping with Lumion, I have a problem with biz models, for instance, there is a maximun size where I can modify the land and can't create large mountains environmental far from the model.

 

I sent days ago you a urban planning with 400 Ha, where I found several bugs:

 

.- cant manipulate the land for creating lakes

.- the mountains automatically generated by lumion are close up to the model and put inside the urban planning, there is not posible to move far away

.- shadows don't works properly in top view, I can't so a sunny recreation from the top

 

.../...

 

so, the question is:

 

"wich is the maximun size for one model?"

 

regards

 

jann

The shadows get a hard time indeed seem from above. But probably rendering a movie makes it a bit better.

 

The current terrain is a 1024x1024 heightmap strechted over a 2048x2048 terrrain. You can draw the edges of the landscape to see where the current square is. Also creating the standard mountain shows the center of the world a bit.

 

We will have adjustable sizes in future releases.

Mmmmm....this model is bigger than that size,

 

I thought scale de model and all elements inside, but its hard 'cause there is a lot of elements.


Maybe in a future release (asap) it could be a nice idea, if one can scale all the project to an exact percentaje, working as a block for this feature

You can select all objects and then scale. Then at least they scale the same way.

Hi Ferry, I mean regarding this subject:




"The current terrain is a 1024x1024 heightmap strechted over a 2048x2048
terrrain. You can draw the edges of the landscape to see where the
current square is. Also creating the standard mountain shows the center
of the world a bit."

Currently you can't change the size. And it takes some work to let it work for us in Lumion. Since at some places currently the code expect a same size terrain so we need to check all that. We first want to release update 1 final so please test rc6!
