    I created the effect of rotating the ship when moving and the code I used is below. It actually turned out quite nice I think.

    private static float TempRot;
    private static float TempPos;

    In Update Add
    //Amount to move and rotate
    Player.TempRot = (transform.position.x - Player.TempPos) * -10;
    Player.TempPos = transform.position.x;

    float amtToMove = Input.GetAxis("Horizontal") * PlayerSpeed * Time.deltaTime;
    transform.rotation = Quaternion.AngleAxis(TempRot * 10, Vector3.up);

    transform.Translate(Vector3.right * amtToMove, Space.World);

    However, the Engine just hangs and stops responding a soon as I press the movement key....its fine as long as I fire, but as soon as I touch movement...boom. Is this because I've placed it in the Update function and it's too much for the Engine to handle?(Sounds fishy)
    How that code is currently set up when you hit a movement key the engine will go into an infinite loop. The while statement will always be true for that frame/update. The input is sampled once before the update then does not change for the duration of the update. Instead of an while statement just use an if statement.

    For most of the other stuff I can't help you. I haven't opened Unity for a few weeks, life has gotten in the way.

    @jjstanley: Ill sample that code as soon as I get back to my PC...thanks for the help mate.

    @jjbird: Yeah I thought there was an infinite loop happening in there. I just thought that when I hit the key, it will rotate until I leave it...but I was wrong there.

    I'll give the if statement a go, though stanley's code looks neat as well. Anyone got any ideas on the message appearance which I mentioned earlier?
