I'm not sure what to suggest, I don't pay much attention to this
area.  Maybe Logo?

I wouldn't worry about that.  It's like saying it's discouraging to
learn in engineering class how to solve problems involving frictionless
pulleys because you can't buy those in practice.  The idea in each of
the above cases is to strip the problem to its bare essentials for
study.  Dealing with real-world complications can come later.
