MeshCreateQuadSphere Method

Constructs a quad mesh sphere. A quad mesh sphere differs from a standard UV mesh sphere in that it's vertices are evenly distributed. A quad mesh sphere starts from a cube (a regular polyhedron with 6 square sides). It is then refined by splitting each quad into 4 smaller quads. This splitting can be done several times.
