Physics game/sim for vehicles and bots

We found some inspiration in this “pre-alpha” program simply entitled “Game about vehicles“.  (Think of it as Bad Piggies on steroids.)  It includes a variety of basic building components, broadly aimed at land, air and sea environments.  The physics are good too, otherwise it wouldn’t be much use to us.  Other parts: joints, wheels, rockets, wing, props, balloons, gun, lights…

Dynamic physics, power sources and more.

There are bugs, but we’re just happy to find a simulation environment that also includes a gyroscope component with controls that let it operate as a virtual CMG!

If we were able to adjust amount of angular momentum, that’d make it even better…  New features are in development and yet to be released, but it’s a project worth following!
