Admittedly, it could therefore only go up to 104x104, but that was because I only used a single buffer...

please read Articles & Resources / Landscapes & Terrain..

I think the most used format for terrains is a heightmap..

I wrote a tool to export terrain meshes as .X file meshes. I then used X files divided in to an octree to render terrain.
