actually a planet ship would be a planet which has been modified to be a ship, typically intended to break away from its orbit and fly under an artificial power such as the Chinese Science Fiction film “The Wandering Earth” where the ship is literally firing giant engines to keep moving through space. (actually a half decent film)
if a planet breaks away from its orbital path by another other means, its usually then (afaik) it is then considered a Rogue Planet
i completely agree, however just because we can’t land on the planet, what i think would be cool is having it as a key strategic point, recently in the lore all the major events have been caused by warclones. so in terms of some of the story, i don’t see how it could be a bad thing, i can see something like this.
“due to recent activities in the four empires have decided to expand their edencomm efforts further by repurposing a singular planet into a super max security prison, as from this moment forward all currently active warclones are declared terrorists and are to be captured and bought to [insert planet name here]”
there are already basic missions to capture people on interest from combat missions, so perhaps those could just be “informants”
later on CCP could as part of the story release something saying all stored consciousness of previous warclones has been moved to said prison planet and then maybe do something with the warclone blanks on the market.
this way when they finally bring back the good old warclones in an FPS manner, there can be a solid week long event basically being a planet wide prison riot / prison break.
que every elder scrolls game. I’m not sure how that would work exactly but ultimately would serve as a tutorial.
a prison planet is not a huge stretch as these are seen in science fiction, another type of prison is seen in doctor who the “genesis ark” which is a time lord prison for darleks and also in Jet Li’s “The One” Jet Li & Jason Statham need to capture the evil Jet Li and send him to a multiversal prison to prevent him from becoming a god.
i just figured it would be really cool, a sort of “put it here now” and use it for a “deus ex machina” perhaps not everytime, but i mean it would be cool to use it in a pinch.
besides the idea of an FPS launch happening and previous warclones getting their accounts back, being told they’ve been “imprisoned” for years and now they have to fight their way off a planet for their very survival.
I’m confident people would absolutely LOVE to have this as the player based especially of returning warclone players will relate very strongly to this.
