Something not yet talked about.
For all the talk about the maps and interface and ship designer (All of which makes me resemble a lonely island song) one thing that I haven't seen discussed yet is multiple monitor support.
Imagine being able to put the colony management screen on a separate window? Or the science screen, or just about every screen other than the main view....
... Or even have a second main view window. So you could put window 2 on an important part of the map while window one jumps from active ship to active ship.
