Oh, one RTS that had at least a lot of high technology was Total
Annihilation. The back story is about this war between the CORE and ARM
which has been going on for A Long Time Now and has consumed most of the
galaxy's resources. Originally, the CORE ruled the galaxy, but when
uploading became feasible, they insisted that everybody be uploaded for
their own good. Some people didn't like this, and rebelled, forming the
ARM (I don't know if the names stand for anything). Since they don't have
uploaded soldiers the ARM uses clones with Neural interfaces in all their
vehicles. Both sides use hard nanotechnology to build units and buildings,
harvest resources, etc. though the nanites don't reproduce in the
environment. The two resources you can get are energy and metal, and yes,
you can turn energy into metal if you really need too or have some extra
fusion generators lying around.
