Dangerous Waters, one of the inspirations for Objects in Space allows several computers to be linked controlling a single platform.
Using that you can set up a real-life virtual ship by linking several computers locally, and giving each of them a station.
With OiS’s support for custom hardware peripherals that would become even more useful, as it now becomes possible to build several stations responsible for different areas that are crewed by different players.
Will OiS support this style of linking several computers together? Alternatively, supporting multiple monitors and assigning specific stations to specific monitors could be useful if the stations are only used for display and custom hardware is used to manipulate what the stations control.
