Creating Vehicles on Notebook.ai

Vehicles come in many shapes and sizes: cars, boats, spaceships — or something completely new.

Creating vehicles on Notebook.ai is easy.

To get started, just click Vehicles under the "Worldbuilding" header in the site sidebar. You'll be able to see or edit all of your existing vehicle pages and create new ones at any time.

Search your vehicles


If you've got a lot of vehicles, you can quickly get around to the right one with Notebook.ai's full-text search. It searches your entire notebook for anything you wrote about that vehicle.

You can also filter your vehicles by tag, whether you've favorited that page, and which universe it's in.

Private by default


Your ideas are valuable. Every vehicle you create in Notebook.ai is owned by you, completely private by default, and only accessible to you.

But of course, you also have full control over that privacy and can share any vehicle page you want, however you want, whenever you want.

Premium page


Vehicle notebook pages require an active Premium subscription to create, but users on free plans can view and edit their existing vehicle pages at any time.

Notebook.ai is your personal worldbuilding notebook; any page you create is yours forever and you'll never lose access to any part of it for any reason — even if you downgrade to a free account in the future.

 

drive_eta Get a head start with a rich vehicle template


Templates on Notebook.ai are what help our unique worldbuilding system better understand your world.

You can fill out as little or as much as you'd like on every new vehicle. You'll see progress indicators every time you edit it to show where you can make progress on, and our system will intelligently generate questions for you around the site that will automatically save your answers to the proper place on your vehicle page.

Templates are also fully customizable across every vehicle in your notebook.

You can browse the default template for vehicles here; click any category to see its questions.

Vehicle features

photo_library Upload images to your vehicle


Vehicles and other worldbuilding pages all come with a dedicated area to upload and showcase your own uploaded images.

All users start out with 50MB of image storage space available for their notebook (usually around 250-500 images), but Premium users receive an extra 10GB (10,000MB) of storage space for plenty of wiggle room when decking your vehicles out with all kinds of images.

The images you upload replace any default images the site uses, which makes your notebook truly feel yours when you see all of your fancy vehicles!

vpn_lock Focus on vehicles from a single universe


Building entire fictional worlds is hard, and it gets even harder when you've got ideas spanning multiple universes or worlds.

Focusing on a single universe at a time is a good example of how Notebook.ai tries to stay out of your way as a worldbuilding tool, while also presenting your ideas front-and-center for you to work on without distractions.

After you've created a couple universes, you can select any one at any time to filter your entire notebook to just vehicles and other pages that exist within that universe, letting you focus on just what's important right then.

group_add Invite others to collaborate


Notebook.ai lets you add an unlimited number of collaborators to your universes. Each one has full access to work alongside you on your vehicles and other pages within that universe.

If you have a Premium subscription active, your collaborators can also share all of your Premium perks while working in your universe, too!

brightness_4 Work in light or dark mode


Protect your eyes at night by choosing between light and dark themes at the click of a button, available across the entire website.

drive_eta Build your vehicle piece by piece with personalized writing prompts


Once you've started creating a vehicle or two, you'll start noticing our worldbuilding tool asking you personalized questions about those vehicles around the site.

Whenever you write an answer to any of these prompts, they'll automatically be saved to the relevant field on your vehicle notebook page and you won't be asked the same question again.
