Alpha 3 Performance Enhancements

The Surface and Wireframe geometry format have been changed for performance improvements. The new format eliminates many annoying internal index counters. As a result the engine is noticable faster and smaller. Only two Surface geometry examples are provided. The existing wireframe models are out of date and will be updated in the future.
To currently design your own surface models you might want to create a spreadsheet to calculate the surface normals.
