The MCnet short-term project aimed at implementing a complete description of spacetime coordinates and evolution during event generation in Herwig 7. The current version of Herwig, as with most other event generators, is formulated in an energy-momentum picture, with no concrete understanding of geometry and spacetime information generation. After a high-energy collision, outgoing QCD partons will undergo bremsstrahlung, lowering their energy more and more until reaching the non-perturbative, low-energy regime of QCD.
