This part calculates which edges are visible - in other words, which lines we should draw - and clips them to fit on the screen. When we get here, the heap at XX3 contains all the visible vertex screen coordinates.

Temporary storage, used to store the address of a ship blueprint. For example, it is used when we add a new ship to the local bubble in routine NWSHP, and it contains the address of the current ship's blueprint as we loop through all the nearby ships in the main flight loop
