You are a space transport corporation. You want to expand your transport network to these opportunities like:

* Asteroid Mining Cargo

* People transport

* Interplanetary Goods

* Entire invasion forces (As well as the defenders)

etc...

But you may encounter:

* Space Pirates

* Micrometeorite storms

* Navigating gravity pathways (Short predictable pathways are more slower and interceptable than the more fuel heavy route)

* UNSC space regulations

       Please...   

       You've been around here for a while. Isn't there a video game that does that already ?

       There's easily a handful of recent, extent games like that.

       Closest I can think of is planetary annihilation, but that is more about military logistics. Which I guess sorta counts, if delivering deathbots and crashing asteroids against your opponents counts in an RTS manner?

       Freelancer, Eve Online, the upcoming Star Citizen: they're all shootemups because that's what sells, but they contain fleshed out elements of commerce and trade: prices for cargos rise and fall with supply and demand; more pirates lie in wait near stations that deal in pricey goods, different items are contraband in different systems, et cetera.

       How does this stack up against "Trade Wars", a popular game played on BBS systems in the 1990s? I don't think it had ALL of the elements listed above, but seems like a pretty similar concept.

       I like this concept, but like it better as Stamp Collecting Tycoon.
