Development and future plans

All model loading/rendering etc. is based on WoWmapview, with a few changes.

Plans for future development: bug fixes, interface improvements, adding some smaller features. For model exporting, try this.

As always, contribution is welcome. The wiki has a lot of documentation on all the WoW file formats.
