What kind of vehicles will there be?

We have already seen a motor bike, so we should most likely be able to have cars. Spaceships should be included to travel in Space, but hat about boats, and will I be able to build a spaceship that can hold another vehicle in it?

I presume you will have your basic... types, if you will, of each vehicle. Most likely being, car, motorcycle, boat, plane, helicopter, and spacecraft. Within each category it seems nearly certain that the user will have near unlimited possibilities to the creation of their vehicle, in theory, you should be able to build anything you wish. Example, say you would like a tank, you would pick the category which best pertains to your chosen vehicle, which in this case would be a car. Then, you modify to your liking. I feel the game will be very fun in this aspect, especially if there is an in-game currency in which you can purchase vehicles from other players with.

Maybe the kind of vehicle will depend of the parts you use to construct it.
For example, you put a strong and big motor with tracks and a cannon to have a tank, like in Planet Explorers.

The goal for non-terrestrial vehicles wasn't reached, so I don't now if they will implement any.

Yeah, that was one of the reasons I was asking

I also remember rails and trains being mentioned and I was so rooting for that stretch goal but we just couldn't hit in the time-span given. I'm really hoping those are implemented in at a later date, maybe after 1.0, but it they're implemented earlier you won't hear me complaining. In fact I'd be ecstatic.

I suppose that being able to find or make a motor will take time.
So I hope we will find/make wagons, carts or carriages, drawn by us or animals.

Yeah, heavy starships like in space engineers have to be available to be built !

SuperHornet I am going to assume that you are also a member of the Star Citizen community. I like where you are going with this. I also have a desire to build large heavy spacecraft. One of my first projects will be to build a replica of the Starfarer.

We would love to have all different kinds of vehicles in the game.

It's just a matter of time. What is certain now is that only some terrestrial vehicles are planned for the first opus (and simple spaceship of course).

Dude. Once star citizen comes out, no other game will be able to compete in that genre.

Huge fan of Wing Commander

Will vehicles move not in relation to how the voxels are aligned? As in, will a bike be able to travel freely at any angle across a block, instead of always following blocks and turning at right angles?

Trains will follow this limitation, as they will follow tracks, which will be aligned on blocks.
However, for other vehicles, as we plan to plug a correct physic engine, you could go in any direction.

I think you would be able to make a hover wagon by attaching a containter to a hover bike might slow it down but I think it is possible

@whitenoise Yes its possible. And I tried also a spaceship wagon attached to a spaceship . its work but slow
