Make Waypoint Stations more useful.

Currently the use of waypoint stations feels pretty limited compared to the effort of unlocking and maintaining them. I think it would be nice if those would also function as communication relay between habitats. Possible benefits once the relay grid is active could be:

  • Ability to remotely run diagnostics checks on systems of other habitats on the PDA and/or the habitat computer system
  • Remotely activate and shutdown systems (water reclaimer, reoxygenator, heater, reserve power)
  • Receive alerts about imminent system failures of other habitats.

I honestly love all of these ideas. Another player already suggested that we be able to view the contents of other habitats' storage units remotely. I'll have to put some more thought into how these might be implemented, but I think it's a very strong set of functions to expand on the usefulness of the WayStats.
