Hey guys!  I came up with this idea for server settings.  You can change which vehicles you add!  It's kind of hard for me to explain, but this is what it might look like.  
Badly edited image #1You could name the vehicles, and give them different settings.  For example: I want my game to have four jets.  Each based off of modern fighters.  One could be named the F/A-18, and would be fast, with decent agility and firepower.  The other could be named the mirage.  A bit slower, but with more firepower.  
 
Here's another picture once you're in game.  I've chosen two buggies named buggy one and buggy 2.  

Badly edited image 2So there's my idea.  I might add a better picture later, but probably not.

I was going to upload a video on this idea....but I got distracted and attempted to program a 2d mars explorer buggy.

I think this idea is pretty good, but why not just create new "buggy types" like, a race buggy, which has been probosed many times?

I was thinking about that, but then you could just change the settings to get the same effect in the normal buggy.  Maybe you could just choose a different body type?  Like jet, tank, buggy, hovercraft, race buggy.

In the future (Mars 3.2), you'll be able to customize your own vehicle design. Your requested feature would conflict with allowing vehicle creation because the vehicles in a given server would be pre-determined. It's a cool idea, though!

That's even better!  I'm even more excited about the future of mars now!  As long as mods have to approve new vehicles.  It's the internet.....so yeah.

Yeah, I've seen nasty things done with the spore vehicle creator.
