Goal

This module will load and handle Quake III levels as proposed in ticket:133. Though QIII-levels are great, they don't offer the extensibility of orxonoxs XML-levels. Thus BspModel is not meant to replace orxonoxs xml-levels.
To keep things as simple as possible, we intend to iplement a QuakeIII level loader which allows us to load QIII-.bsp files the same way, orxonox lets us load .md2 or .obj models.


There you find some recent screenshots.
