the gravity of the ring planet would conflict with the gravity of the non-ring planet. Besides, those rings would prolly collapse onto the green looking planet

The 'green' looking planet is a moon. Because of the perspective it appears to be larger than it really is.

The rings would be influenced by the mass of the moon (+planet), the orbit of the moon (relative to the planet), the radial velocity of the moon, and the composition of the ice/dust of the rings.

The gravity well from the planets would not allow this. Since there are two planets the ring would not cross into the planet as shown above. What should be shown would be more like an oval or a larger ring that follows the motion of the planets. If the ring was made into oval it would allow both planets to affect any particles and debris better since two planets are present, not just one. Buts that only if they programed it to be like the binary planets made earlier where one orbits the other. Both planets could be stationary and have a really big ring of particles to fix this problem to.

The Greenish "planet" is a moon. The image was taken from behind that moon. Because it is close to the "lens" it appears bigger. AKA. the green one is in the foreground while the ringed world is far in the backround. There would be no conflict of physics.

As far as I can tell anyway.

A world of ice and crystal. Living conditions are harsh but fortunes can be made.

The gravity well of this planet is filled with a cloud of dense ice particles. Enemy strike craft operations are severely effected.
