Describe SHAPEFILES here.

SHAPE.TXT is the main shape model that all of SPC uses. The first line is the Q size (between 8 and 512 in factor of 2 increments: 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512). The shape is in the ICQ format, which is basically a 6 sided cube.

Each subsequent line gives the vector of the surface. Bob has made a new routine (equalize) that helps distribute the vectors evenly. The vectors are in Cartesian space (x, y, z)

```         512

SHAPE00.TXT is the "baseline" shape model. This can be use to keep limit how far the new shape gets from the starting shape. Usually, it is turned off part way through the mission, INIT_LITHOS.TXT

I use a symbolic link to specific the SHAPE.TXT. Thus, I can keep a useful filename in the directory, but "link" that to SHAPE.TXT so SPC works.

```cd SHAPEFILES
ln -s <realfile> SHAPE.TXT```
