Nest Entrance Visual Glitch

normal post 919 6
(Mac Glitch)
When I zoom in all the way on my nest entrance, the entire nest entrance becomes a glitchy black color. Not just the nest holes, but the entire nest entrance space (which I've noticed to be some sort of square or rectangular shape around the nest entrance). This pretty much makes it impossible to zoom in to see battles at my nest entrance, or even just look at my nest entrance or the area around it zoomed in.

Something I have noticed: There are three levels of camera zoom, the 3rd being the farthest out, the 2nd being in the middle, and the 1st being as close as the normal camera can get. This glitch, as I said, happens only when in the 1st level of camera zoom, and immediately goes away once zoomed out. Something I have noticed is if I am on the 1st level of camera zoom, and I am looking at the glitchy nest entrance, if I continue scrolling a little bit, the glitchy black shapes move once, but the camera does not zoom in more. After that, if I keep scrolling, no movement happens.

This glitch happens in the formicarium, free play mode, 2.1 and 2.2. In 2.2, the glitch happens to all of the nest entrances, including the enemy colony nest entrances. This glitch seems to have been introduced with the new update.

Any chance you could post some screenshots or vides of this happening, as well as let us know your current hardware setup? Cheers.

Sure, how exactly do I put screenshots onto this forum though?

I'd use something on the internet like giazo or imgur to upload it.  You can get the direct address of the image and post it in the forum's HTML (just click "insert image"). 
And on the sixth day, God created ant in his own image, and gave them dominion over the earth and all of its creatures.  Amen.

Imgur is what I use for things like Screenshot Saturday (happening in the next hour or so btw)

The black glitchy shapes aren't always in that exact position, they change shape if the camera moves, and more of them than how many are in the image can appear to the point where it is hard to even see the nest entrance holes. They disapear if the camera zooms out.

Was just playing on towhead, I noticed that this glitch happens in the alternative nest locations, even when my nest is not there.
