Why is there still no solid movement/tween class?

+1 this thread. MoveTo and Tween would be awesome. Bullet just doesn't work all that well as a MoveTo substitute!

@Roccinio

when i saw TTS I was like "WOOO Party time!" I have been waiting for this for a VERY long time.
Something you don't care for, others might ;)
Not having TTS actually has been holding me back on one of my projects for MONTHS. So really, TTS, omg, thank you.

I'm telling you now, a tween movement is not what you really need.
It can be accomplished easily with a couple variables, and a lerp.

What is really needed is a path behavior with nodes like the one Rojohound made for CC.

It can do what you are wanting and much, much more.

@newt
Yes exactly, the path behavior with different interpolation options.

@newt

Agreed. R0j0's Canvas or/and Paster made official would also be a nice :)
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

@humanescape
My friend I believe that you misunderstood what I was talking about.
It is logical that 1000 people will have 1000 different needs.
But what is the point of one feature that makes you happy when you cant show the world your creation? meaning no proper exporters etc.
I believe you must first build a solid foundation for your software with a little now and then mix of candy(features) to keep your customers happy and engaged. but what is the point of having an iPhone with all its wizardry when you cant make a phone call? ??

I personally don't care about exporters, because I think that mobile apps and foremost games will gradually move away from closed infrastructure of app-stores into mobile browsers. But that's another story.

C2 is the best tool I used so far for game development, but lacking such an important feature is more than strange.

Just use litetween. It's good!

The TTS is part of Chrome, so would be easy for Scirra to wrap.
I definitely would like to see a Path plugin, with editing in the IDE though!
