My idea of final game

Hi, I thinking how change GaV to create complete game from vehicle builder with is this game already. Game about vehicles will be sandbox, exploring game based on gathering minerals, converting them and crafting all needed elements. World for exploring will contains many of star systems with few planets  in each, to travel from one planet to other first player vehicle must achieve orbit (some hight above surface), next travel some distance in space and safe land on other planet. Travel from star to star need discover hyper drive, of course.
Almost all action (travelling, mining, fighting, gathering) will done with help of specialized, own made vehicles, robot character will have limited storage space for gather minerals so create vehicle with cargo container and mining tools is good idea. Some times environment (planets and space) can be hostly so add to vehicle some weapons also will be good idea.More advanced technologies will need some time and work to be able to use. 
In single player (I'm not sure about multi yet) game will be survival (robot can't stave, but it can be killed), exploring base with sandbox physics construction elements, like now.

In near future

Hi, In next version I want add to game space environment and couple elements for building space ships. From new elements will be available: thrusters, reactors, gravity generator, lasers, rocket launchers, AA guns.
Space ships will be have six degree of freedom and will be moved by new type of thrusters and gyroscopes.  Differences between new thruster and normal rocket engine is that the first use energy and they can work with six opposite groups. If one thruster is directed to backward and marked as (z+) and second is directed to forward and marked as (z-) they can stop ship moving in forward axis by giving force to other direction than ship move. Also is option to add more thruster to add more turning force if gyroscopes are too weak.
Reactor will convert fuel to energy if ship need some or have free space in batteries.
Gravity  force generator will add some force to robot character in space.
Also I will add visualization of centre of mass position, it position will be snapping to grid for making balancing things easier
