Could you because my idea was that you could make a map thats actually 1 big planet and you would be inside the planet so you could deploy a shuttle and go to, for example Canada and you could go back to your ship and land your ship. I was wondering if thats was possible

Technically, no. The engine just wouldn't allow for a solid object like that. The best that I am aware of is creating the illusion of it with maybe the use of a "skybox" that resembles the planet.

Ya...that coould work...but it wouldn't look very good.....you'd have to make a VERY complex skybox to create a mediocre planet look....

Not to mention the curve of the planet itself. Could you use the warp system to load a new level as you got closer to the planet?

Overall you could, but it would be pretty demanding on your computer and not look very good or realistic. Let the mappers tell you, they know more about it than this novice.
