Anything with land, water and atmosphere will look like Earth. And I'm pretty sure Earth doesn't have rings xD

actually it is INCREDIBLY RARE to have a Goldilocks condition planet with rings.

Usually during the planets formation it definately can have rings, but after that either the rings dissipate (due to not enough material to form a moon where the material falls back into the planet, OR it does create a moon.) Yet all of this happens long before life begins to form on the planet.

And actually at that to, its rare for terrestrial planets to have any moons at all. Earths moon is actually a strange sort of anomaly. (Plutos moon Charon isn't actually a moon) and Those things around Mars are not actually moons either...

Just saying, kinda bugs me when i see a rocky planet with "rings"

I think it's a fad to bury the first post now-a-days.

Double checking.... "It looks like Earth"

I can see my house from here.

Seriously, good job! Looks amazing. One thing: are the rings individually modelled or textured?

The rings are simply an alpha-mapped plane. ;)

Probably not. This is just a render, but you will be able to fight the British empire on it!

maybe the rings is just trash, we just ran out of places to put it.

Great job though

So is this in-game? Because it's sexy. Also will there be free roaming planet traveling or is this just for load screens?

I like it, but I feel there should be a large desert in the center of that landmass.
EDIT: Didn't see the desert hidden by the ring, complaint withdrawn.

The rings could be automated defense machines, like nanite clouds, that double as weather control satellites to generate tides and such. In an emergency, the nanite clouds that form the rings spread out to form a defensive grid/net around the planet, and then coalesce back into rings to allow for normal traffic.

I'm not suggesting content for the game, just a solution for everyone complaining about "rings around an Earth-like planet".

On a bit of a tangent, Phil Plait wrote a interesting article a while back about Earth with rings:
