Thanks Ken.

I  implemented your suggestion. Sort of helps, but needs to be a bit
differently implemented, of the flock whacks out.

What works best for a flock motion is is FN MassLogic is called before the
BirdThink loop.

But getting the mass to flow around is still a problem, so a logic problem
remains perhaps.

I would almost think that a spline based move around of  gMassX and gMassY
would make the flock follow better, though I gather that it is supposed to
be "self flowing" based on the boids themselves?

Anyway, thanks for the comments.

Robert
