RTS Development

Off Topic Dicussion
So, I've taken a few computer science classes and made a few simple video games--now I want to tackle an RTS. I've got a few friends who are willing to help out, but none of us have tried to make a game like this before. So, we need guidance: How does one begin making an RTS -- perhaps not on the scale of Starcraft 2, but with similar functions (such as online play)? I don't want to jump into it only to find out I need to rewrite the entire game to allow for multiplayer. Any links, suggestions, or any help on how to develop this kind of game is appreciated.

I thought I'd post in the SC2 forums since Starcraft inspired this idea.
