Hi jon2, thanks for your questions.
Question 1. Has the size requirements and limits been expanded at all? If not, has any better workarounds been figured out for attempting to recreate... for example a 6 mile area such as a peninsula that will have models placed around that area?
I assume you're talking about part of the terrain that can be edited (raised/lowered/painted).
This still encompasses an area measuring 2048x2048 meters.
There's more information in the section entitled 'Terrains in Lumion
' in this post
As is evident in Gilson's post above, most of our users tend to create their terrains in 3rd party applications.
Question 2. Has importing terrain changed or expanded on at all?
The short answer is no.
We have previously asked our paying customers what changes they would like to see, and based on that the developers have considered a number of options. The decision that was made when planning the feature set for 5.0 was that an overhaul of the terrain functionality would require a lot of time and manpower which would leave little scope for other features.
This doesn't mean that it will never be overhauled - it was just not the right time, given the contraints that a major upgrade entails.
