Even if you converted the Germany file from OSM into a LS database you 
would end up with a 150 MB file which cannot be imported into Loadstone. LS 
will work good with databases of 2 MB (30 thousand points) but if you get 
bigger the program will slow down to a crawl. Using the off-line tools you 
can experiment with the size of the OSM file to download for good results 
with Loadstone.
