Well guys I'm sitting here... and I love space ship RTS's. Sins of a Solar Empire is good... homeworld is good...  But I'm thinking.. how come no one has ever made a World War 2 base star ship game'? You can just google the space yamato, and arizona..  Couple awesome pics of them come up.  ( I did google ww2 ship games in space.. nothing)

You could take obviously real classes of warships from WW2.. American, Italy, France, Germany, Great Britain, Japan, Russia.. and create something awesome with a bit of futuristic looks.  I'm sure a bunch of you know about the new engine that was demoed not too long ago called Nitrous by the Oxide Studio...  an engine designed practically for space ship RTS.  I think the combination would be epic.  You could change aircraft like the F6F Grumman Hellcat or the A6M Zero and make them a bit futuristic and then you have your fighters..  make a B17 look futuristic.. bam bombers..  Would take a tiny bit of outside the box thinking to make somethings look futuristic, but I see it being totally feasible. I lack the ability to model, but I think this is an idea worth capitalizing on thus throwing it out to the masses.   Could be a mod for Sins, or homeworld. Though I know Sins is capped to 1 core support which isn't exactly bueno.  So I think when that engine is released as they said it's supposed to be out Q1 2014 for people to work with, IMO don't think it's a bad idea. 

Below are link to images of a couple drawings to a couple spaceships based on real life warships.

I think I saw some engine how soley focused on games at this scale which is either early in to works or haven't been released yet. I'll see if I can find it.

Looks similar to Flotilla, except that's turn based.  I like the concepts like that, very neat.
