Can someone tell me if they can get the scene with the flocking aliens from the 11.5 content to work?

I load it, and items move, but the clones don't show up or flock.

Try clicking the Recalculate button.

Yup, done that. I see calculating going on, and 3 groups of what look like instances move gym but the groups are bunched together and don't render.

Anyone. Can someone confirm that they have tried this scene and it workis in 11.5 or better? It may be that I need to re download the content.

Renders fine in LW11.0, not in 11.6.2!
Looks like it may be broke in 11.6.2.

Hmmm. Thanks for the confirmation that it's nothing I've done :)

Anyone know enough about how it works to suggest what to change?

!!!! Wow, that's a QC issue if ever I saw one: the lowest paid person at LW3dG (hey, hire ME!!) should be tasked with loading EVERY content supplied LWS and checking to make sure they are currently viable.

I'd call that ALPHA testing. Low-hanging fruit: demo content should of course work.

AFAIR Flocking 11.5.x -----> 11.6.x got some revisions/updates/changes and that's why it's not "compatible" anymore but should work fine if you remake scene in 11.6.x.

In which case, the content should be updated to suit, otherwise brand new LW users will really struggle trying to use these scenes.

THIS. That's what's called "alpha testing".

To be fair to Newtek, this scene is I the LW 11 content, not 11.5 or 11.6.
