Dockable planets

I was playing around with FLE cause I got bored of "real" modding and came up with a wonderous idea. I'm am sure most of you have fininshed SP if not DO IT lol, and in the last lvl you have to fight withing the dyson shoere on the dyson platform. Wouldn't it be cool if the floor of the dyson shpere were like grass on a planet or desert and insted of having Jumpgate to other systems they merely bring you to the "planet" system, with backround of blue skies and clouds and buildings, hangars insted of stations. I know that this sounds dumb but I think it would b really cool and I will make a dyson version of it and take a s/s and post it for all of u naysayers .

Edit- Since its been noted as nthe correct title.

I feel so stupid. I meant to say Dockable. O well I guess my life is horrible. LOL. I can't belive I am so DUMB. I am making a "city" right now.

Ah yes, i have this idea once, i just never put it through because retextureing the dyson sphere is a pain in the @$$.

In order to do it correctly you should put a lot of dyson sphere objects together in order to make it look really big. Then the docking ring could send you to that system instead of landing you on the planet.

Good luck on that!

Imagine that!
A good retexturing, add some reshaped nebulas for clouds, make some serious custom hangars...
grab the Dyson Entrance platform and throw it into the Dyson Shere. "retexture the platform", put your hangars on it.

Man...I gotta try this.

You'd need a few custom starspheres to make them look like planets.

there was a mod... whats its name... it did exactly this, it had an invisible barrier above so ships couldn't fly yet somehow other planes could. Idk how but they did. It looked like it took forever, they only did one with four bases.

im pretty sure it was the newest version of solurus systems maybe wts

Let me think... CrossFire 1.7 has one of those (explorable planets) (Outside is CF54 and inside is CF53)
