New things: -all element will be have a new, better model -wheels have own suppression -new GUI of editor is easier to use -new element Hinge
Each construction is based on nodes, node can be wheel, wing, engine, balloon, propeller, tank etc.
Nodes can be connected by edges, moved, rotated, added and removed.
Vehicle can be divided to many segments by axes, axe can have rotation limit and can be individual steering
Game support air and water drag, wings can direct aerodynamic force to chosen direction. Nodes in water have own displacement, it can be changed in tank node so build submarine is possible.
Parameters of each elements can be changing in inspector, also it allows to rebind steering keys.

Hi, I was thinking how change current vehicle editor to full game with goals, progress and enjoying gameplay.
First from all, according they name most impotent thing must be a vehicles, all kind of, for travelling, fighting, working and storage all needed stuff. For having material to building and making technological progress minerals (many kinds) are necessary, minerals are placed underground so some of dig working will be help. Also planets will be resident by many type of hostly mobs, so digging will not always be safe. Robot character can dig, collect resources and fight alone but it is too ineffective to do it good, vehicles can do it better.
Game world will not be only single planet, they will contains many of stars and each will have couple of planets to explore, also in space will be many place without gravity to explore. Planets and whole universe are random generated. To travel from one planet to other first vehicle must achieve orbit (some hight above surface), next travel some distance in space and safe land on other planet. Travelling between stars need hyper drive to discover. Sometimes in space alien space ship can be meet, aggressive of course.
More advanced technologies will need some exploring and crafting work to been discover. Also more precious minerals will be rare and they will not be available in some of planets. Also changing minerals to useful materials will need to bulid machines, or even systems first. And, of course all stuff need some kind energy to run.
