I know I built a couple capital ships and destroyed the hangers that makes them to put my frig plant back up.
You need to keep the temples to utilize the research. In most cases, you should be able to max out both trees (or close to it) even in a single star game. Did you upgrade your planets?

Yes, it's a RTS... more specific it is a 4X RTS. Their is online play but is currently laggy and users quit too often. It's definitely not like C&C3 being a space 4X.
Once again...

I don't think SINS is multithreaded, I cap at about 55% load when running it. By flagship, do you mean flagship of a fleet, or to have the title 'flagship' in it's name? The first capital ship you produce will be the flagship of your entire race, but to make a ship the flagship of a fleet, select that ship first, then use shift and alt to select all the other ships you want to include in the fleet. You will see that there is a solid box around the first ship you selected in the fleet tree, with opaque white boxes around the other ships. The ship that has the white box around it when you click "create fleet" will be the flagship of the fleet.

I played it some this weekend. I thought it was fun, but a little slow moving. I might try it out again sometime, but I didn't think it was deserving of the IGN rating it got.

I was new to RTS games I had played Warcraft and to be honest wasn't a fan of it. I've always been a space game junky, hence why I'm a trekkie. This game I love with a passion. I've enjoyed this game more then I have with any other game, MMO's included. I'd take this over any FPS anyday of the week.

I seriously say try it! I'm new to the genre as a whole and I'm hooked.

Only gripe I have with the game compared to Homeworld is that sins is played on a 'flat' surface where Homeworld you could move about in anyway in space, and also in Homeworld you could destroy specifics on a capital ship, like their engines . Otherwise this game is great .
