The bees in my Bee Simulator are exhibiting an odd behavior. While moving, a large percentage, sometimes all of them, "bounce" either back and forth, or up and down, depending on which direction they are moving. If they're moving horizontally (such as toward the flowers), they bounce up and down. If they're moving vertically (such as to and from the Honey Factory), the bounce back and forth. It doesn't happen with all the bees, all the time, though if they're moving from one exact location to another, which only really happens when they go from the Entrance to the Honey Factory, they will always bounce. If I fiddle around with the coordinates of my Honey Factory and Entrance, I can get them to not bounce during that trip. Since all other coordinates are created randomly, I can't really test them.
Other data points:
The bees don't bounce if I change the MoveRate to 1.
The bees never bounce on the way back from the flowers, no matter what location the hive is at, and what flower they came from.
I'm using the Graphics bees, not the custom control.
This problem also occurs with the solution that I downloaded from the HF C# website.
Possibly unrelated: Recently, since I've been messing with the code trying to fix this, I've had a problem where bees come out of the hive, drop down a little ways, and stay there, not moving, and perpetually "FlyingToFlower" I'm pretty sure I changed all the code back to the way it was before, so possibly this is a bug that just showed up late, as it doesn't happen every time.
