Early Vehicle Designs

To do:
Check all the versions to see if anything has changed for the other vehicles.

Super Diesel

The Super Diesel truck was originally going to be a bit squished, rounded, and have a step for detail. The final release extends the body a bit and removes the step. The exhaust also went through some touches, too.

The Tank was originally going to be gray and a bit taller. When the vehicle was officially released in 1.3.0, its palette was changed to green instead. In addition, before the Tank was released, a red and green variant existed in two folders called green and red. They were removed due to the in-game engine capable of changing the default's palette instead. Oddly, once released, the folders were renamed to tank_hue_blue and tank_hue_green. The only colors available are green (default), red, and blue. Red is located in the tank_hue_green folder.
