[00:07:17] <Coren_> Ack!!! iD makes cool games, but their file format engineering sucks!
[00:09:41] <Coren_> Picture this: array of vertices. On average, vertices are used in 3 edges; so to avoid duplication...
[00:10:00] <Coren_> they have a table of non-directional edges (pair of points)
[00:10:23] <Coren_> which is refered by a table of 'face edges' (index in edge table plus direction flag)
[00:10:59] <Coren_> which is refered by an 'edge list' table (indices into the face edge table so that they are consecutive for a given face)
[00:11:22] <Coren_> which is refered by a 'face list' table so that faces can be grouped
[00:11:28] <Coren_> which is refered by the node list of the bsp.
[00:11:44] <Coren_> I think someone at iD likes indirections. Carnally. :-/
[00:31:53] <servus> The id engines have always been very fast.
