suggestion for the range of the working space

hello lumions,
i have a suggestion for the future versions:

right now, we have only 1 working space per model with ca. 2 x 2 km.
it's not enough for a bigger city-model (urban planning) to be shown in one fligt (for example), since you cannot terraform outside the  2 x 2 km working space.

idea:

1. either:  a definable range for the working space (maybe up to 10 km), the real calculation can still be limited to 2 x 32 km, but terraforming is allowed in a wider range

2. or:
every imported model has its own "working space" , somehow, so the terraforming is always posiible, where you are at the moment (selection?)

3. or: a grid of more working spaces, analogue to 2

that's it!

as far as i heard, the placing of models outside the working space (bug) is to be improved in the next version. thanx.

regards stan

Thanks for your ideas, Stan - yes, you're right. In the next update, it will be possible to place models as far away from 0,0,0 as you want. Just bear in mind that models that are far away from the center of the Lumion world will appear to wobble slightly due to the fact that Lumion (and many other real-time 3D engines) suffer from floating point precision inaccuracies when placed far away from 0,0,0.

hi,
thanx for answering,
so is there a chance to become a wider terraforming-range in the future?

in my actual model it's a real limitation for me...

i also posted some new ideas today...

Hi stan, unfortunately I can't answer that question, even if I knew the answer :)

The problem is that if a potential customer purchases Lumion on the basis of us promising that feature X will be ready by a certain date, and this promise fails to materialise, it could be interpreted as false marketing.

For that reason, the developers have to wait with announcements until they're 100% certain that a given feature will be included.
