Hi Mike, 
I see Steve's note and it has some very good ideas. This attachment is a flight path project I started a few months ago. Here it is, not quite finished but you can see what is going on.
Happy Landings

I'd like to do something similar to this game in Squeak / Etoys


I.e. using a connector, having the motion of a morph follow that
connector, as the connector is moved while the morph is moving.

I see the demos in Etoys of   a "car following a road", but they seem
to be tracking a particular color, and continually turning left or
right (which is ya, basically what any path finding program is gonna
have to do internally, I guess).

Wondering if there is a "high level"  / class  / etoys .. method etc,
to track a connector
