01:45 lucs Heh, cleaning out an old disk, I just found a copy of patch_make.pl (1998) -- anyone recognize that?
02:04 ronsavage lucs: No. Does it still run? Hahaha.
02:06 lucs ronsavage: Dunno, but I believe it used to! :)
02:06 lucs So I guess you recognized the name eh :)
02:12 lucs "C<patchMake.pl> was written by Ron Savage I<E<lt>rpsavage@ozemail.com.auE<gt>> in 1998."
02:12 lucs (Sorry, I guess I had changed the name a bit.)
03:54 ronsavage Shudder. /I/ wrote that!? 1998. Scary! Please delete it with extreme prejudice..............................

22:36 Cheery work-in-progress screenshot: http://i.imgur.com/ONDTyjA.png
22:36 Cheery contains minimum amount of editing commands I can use to proof the concept.
22:36 Cheery if you like to try it out, it's here: https://bpaste.net/show/1b2837379236
22:38 Cheery so what next.. I create a command that scans downwards from cursor to find the largest smashed section of the model.
22:38 Cheery then it attempts to fix it by parsing.

22:52 Cheery this is vastly simplified continuation to my earlier study project, which failed because the editing and construction of structures intertwined too much.
22:54 Cheery here the editing just destroys everything it cannot resolve.
22:54 Cheery the parsing step picks up and recovers the damage.
23:02 Cheery well.. that's the theory. I'll see if it works tomorrow.
