What you mean with creating vehicles? Modeling or programming? As for modeling there is no easier way, you just have to do it and for programming, a vehicle in Torque is just a datablock with a list of values like weight, acceleration, steering, drag etc that you set and combined with the model plus correct setup this will be your vehicle. I mean you can create one just now, if you cannot model it, use an existing model or just a cube and play with the numbers.

You can work with them and make some templates, that may help other people, since I for example had problems finding good values, especially the steering always sucks.

a tool like this would be amazing if u could include a way to easily set up gears and transmission, vehicles in torque are very simple atm with not a lot of features but the bare bones is there to make everything work just someone has to connect the dots i guess

+I tried a couple of times and in my experience i have to say its very tedious setting up vehicles that even work.

There seems to be a whole lot of issues from my experimentation, especially in relation with springs/collision to work properly.
I had sessions full of where i had to tweak around blindly because my vehicles would fall trough terrain.

I dont know how feasable it is, but might t3d support realtime vehicle characteristics editing ingame?
Like in a menu with the values that you can set and old engine i used to mess with ancient times ago called w3d used to have such a menu, it was real neat.

Also would love gear ratio settings, missing for good vehicles imo.
