    This is the end.

    No one actually still cares about the viewer, not Ralle, not any of you, and not me.

    It's been too many years. Ultimately no one cares about any of my code, but rather variations of it in other projects. So that's it.

    You are putting words in my mouth. You know what I’m doing. Porting the site to XF2. Your viewer is very important to me and Hive. I’m just so busy with family and the house that updating things on the current site is low priority so I can finish this migration as fast as possible. I’m sorry if this comes off as not caring.

    The rep you receive on a regular basis for your hard work shows that it does not get unnoticed.

    Last version is
    4.5.1
    .

    - Changed and fixed some small things that bothered me for a long time.
    - Remade the camera, so you could have a proper camera if you'll make a new client (supports orbiting, FPS, and look-at).

    I am not putting words in anyone's mouth, in fact words matter to me far less than actions in the first place. If you want to see a project that people care about, go help with HiveWE. You don't need to be defensive, this isn't any kind of accusation or attack, it's simply the truth. Sometimes the truth hurts, but people move on.

    Good luck.

    @GhostWolf , could you place in the first post a link or tutorial about how to use your viewer in other web server? I've searched in the thread and no link is available.

    There is some information on the github readme, and a simple example in the examples folder. Although come to think about it, maybe the example will not work now because I forgot to update it for the new camera. It still gives you the general idea, but doesn't show how to load an MDX for the reason mentioned a few posts ago.
    I could update the readme and/or example if you want to use it.
    If someone provides a Blizzard-free model, I may be persuaded to add more examples, like actual MDX loading, camera setups, etc.

    Well, the problem with "actions > words" is that it's not always easy to show. You kinda have to trust in words, at that point.

    So I can't 'show' you that I use your Model Editor nearly every day, for every model I look at, often multiple times per model to really cement it in my brain. I also can't 'show' you how your Model Editor has, in a roundabout way, made me a better & more successful modder.

    See, I like to have custom resources, but I don't like to make a big deal about Requesting. So instead I've spent a great deal of time around the (Model) Resource forums, reviewing & posting (often at length) about custom models I enjoy, & enticing artists to enter into collaboration with me.

    Thing is, I'm the kind of the guy that if there's even the tiniest obstacle to my doing something, I tend not to do it. If I had to download every model & test it, even in Magos (not even the World Editor proper), that amount of 'work' alone would almost certainly have quashed my drive to test & review models. Just simply not enough time/motivation. And in a world without your Model Viewer, that's exactly what would've happened; nothing.

    So while I can't 'show' you any of that, I hope you'll trust me when I say: Thank You for coding & maintaining that awexome Model Viewer.

    Updated the readme and example, and added an example orbiting camera. Unfortunately I have no model, so there is no proper client example.
