Can somebody tell me what the dimensions of the heightmap used in the landscape demo? Are the units ''scaled'' to give a bigger feeling of the world?

The Height Grid is just 128x128. The tiles can be anysize within reason, but 512-1024 seems common.
The reason for such a small grid, is the Overlaying Terrain Texture one 2048x2048 JPG.
You can however still use the older terrain lib, which doesn''t use the Terrain Texture, instead uses individual textures for tiles. I have had terrains at 1024x1024 with this.
