Abstract: We consider the 3+1-dimensional locally finite gravity model proposed by -tHooft. In particular we revisit the problem of resolving collisions of stringdefects. We provide a new geometric description of the configurations ofstrings using piecewise flat manifolds, and use it to resolve a more generalclass of collisions. We argue that beyond certain bounds for thedeficiency-surplus angles no resolutions may be found that satisfy the imposedcausality conditions.
