What 3D model format do you use?

Helloo

This isn't an issue, so much as just a question for you more experienced Dreamcast programmers.

I'm aware that MD2 is a pretty simple 3D file format to use, and that file formats like OBJ aren't ideal for a multitude of reasons, but I was curious: what do you all tend to use? And why do you prefer using it?

I didn't really seem to see any sort of documentation on a "standard" format, so I'd like to hear what you all tend to use!

Also curious about this. Is MD2 optimized enough for the DC?
