Might be nice to have a setting that moves inactive clients to spec after x amount of time of no actions undertaken in-game. Combined with min_active_clients 1 this would prevent a network game from running when no one is active.
This task depends upon

An easy possible way to configure it might be to simply move clients to spec if theyve spent 0 on construction for a year (or any configurable amount of time)

So if I wait for enough money to buy the next big train, or to pay my big loan, I suddenly get moved to being a spectator?

EDIT: Or when busy trying to figure out how to modify a core junction?

Guess it would be up to server admins to determine how long you can wait for money or figure out your junction, besides its not that much effort to move back into your company after being moved to spec
