Vehicle and Building Parts in Creature Editor?

Hi, I was wondering if someone could make a mod that adds vehicle and building parts to the creature editor. The reason is because I wanted to create a tank that can act like a creature, but looks like a vehicle. Is this possible? Please let me know.

Well it can and has been done, but the unedited vehicle part models have serious issues in a skin-based editor. This could theoretically be fixed via SporeModder, but the rw4 importer's current state is hardly equipped for the job. So for the time being, no, but eventually it may be possible.

I know that, but I can't find any of those mods, can you give me an example of one or two?
