Work is now underway to add a feature that we get requested a lot, the ability to swap the mouse, keyboards and monitors used on the workbenches. Our original workshop environment was never designed to handle such a feature so as part of this implementation we are having to rebuild this environment which has added to the work quite a bit but it should be worth it to allow further workbench customization via swapping peripherals.
While this work is ongoing we are continuing to work to bring further new partners to the game in the future to further expand the range of parts available.
