COLLADA export

Hi southpaw,

> Second Life supports obj imports.

So that should work with MoI's existing OBJ exporter then. Some OBJ importers do not deal with n-gon (more than 4 sided) polygons very well - if that's the case set the option for "Output: Quads & Triangles" when you export from MoI.

Using Collada should not make any difference there since if MoI did have a collada exporter, it would just be exporting the same data that's already there in the OBJ file, just in a different file format.

Any idea why? The list of programs that support OBJ is far longer than what you've listed there for Collada support. They would greatly increase compatibility if they supported OBJ as well like Second Life.

I would like to add Collada in the future, but it's not a high priority since OBJ is so much more widely used - Blue Mars seems to be kind of an exception.
