Is there a way to make things move around on the screen (such as people) while the user does other things? I don't want to use threads if I don't have to.

Can you tell us a bit more? What exactly are you trying to do?

Everything can be done without threads. What you have to do is make the changes in an iterative way. So each frame you move the people only a fraction.

I am trying to move people around in an RTS fashion. I need to be able to select a shape then click somewhere for it to move and then select more people while that one is moving... Along with other actions, but movement is what I'm concerned with now.
