Map Component is Done

The map displaying component is functionally done. We have tested a sample map made by hand (very tedious without a working editor at this point) and we have something that displays, and navigates. It's really good to finally have this piece out of the way as I was sure that it was one of the hardest pieces to accomplish, especally since I haven't done very much in the realm of graphics programming. With only a few tiles i've made in the default tileset it isn't much to see right now but when the artwork starts coming in, as well as having a complete editor to work with things will definitely look more interesting in the coming weeks and months.

Here is a sample screenshot I rendered up from a testmap I made.
