Got it. While I understand the consternation, I don't think this is a bug. The way the locations lookup code works is by first identifying and adding into bags the relevant elements, and THEN optionally removing the origin. That's somewhat faster than checking for the origin and optionally removing it along the way. The origin is removed by using the remove(...) function on intBag. This function works by swapping the removed-element with the top element, then just reducing the size of the bag by 1. That's better than swapping everything down by 1, but as a result the top element in the bag is now out of order -- it's where the origin was. That's the out of order thing you're seeing. There aren't any guarantees that the locations or neighbors will be in any particular order -- you should view them as a set rather than a list. And I am hesitant to modify the code otherwise. HOWEVER there is a solution for you. In AbstractGrid2D and AbstractGrid3D there are the following methods: protected void removeOrigin(int x, int y, IntBag xPos, IntBag yPos); protected void removeOriginToroidal(int x, int y, IntBag xPos, IntBag yPos) If you look at these methods you'll see that they use remove(...). Make a subclass of the grid class you're using (say, MyObjectGrid2D). Then copy these methods into that subclass, but replace references to remove(...) with removeNondestructively(...). You'll probably get better results then.

To nail down your problem, I need a specific and simple example, in code, of expected results and deviations. To get you started, I made a little test program which prints out location results from the distance=1 von Neumann neighborhood at various locations in a 7x15 grid and with various modes. You could modify this to find an example where it's producing the wrong results.
