How can I get my solid infill to be a more continuous pass?

Infill in a cube is fine with generally 2 continuous paths, but I'm getting alot of retractions and jumping around in the gcode for this gear I'm trying to print. i.e. passing right to left, it will retract, jump over several extrusion paths, infill some, then come back to the paths the were skipped, instead of just filling left to right continuously like in a cube.

I can make it worse by decreasing the Sharpest Angle, but not better by increasing it.

Eliminated most of the retractions with minimum travel after retraction, but still getting jumping passes.

Would like to elimate non-retraction extruder moves from my gcode and the extra Z values, which I think better infill continuity would eliminate.

I believe these are retraction moves, but not retracting due to minimum travel after retraction value.

Had infill overlap over perimeter set lower than .65, which SF warns during processing. Was running into backlash issue causing infill to not meet perimeter loops. Now running with backlash correction.

Had the time tonite to run quick test codes to figure it out.
