Regarding the standard Version Can the 8193 resolution claimed really be achieved on a 32bit windows machine with windows 2gb limitation?
I'm running windows 7

On a 32bit machine, 8192 is fiddly. Although you CAN build a 81928x8192 world, you will tend to run into problems as soon as your device network gets complicated.

The most important information can be gleaned here:

It's critical that you enable 3GB mode to give World Machine an extra GB of ram to work with. Without this, as the page notes WM will be limited to no more than 4 heightfields active at once, and sometimes less after fragmentation.
