Transferring captain/host's powers to another player.

Let's say the captain/host has to leave for whatever reason. The host/captain should be able to transfer his role to another player while in the game.

Thank you in advance. :)

We've wanted to add host migration for quite a while, and we'll probably look into it if/when we switch networking solutions! The ability for the captain to transfer power is also something we'd like to look into, though we can't make any solid guarantees for either just yet.

Another idea: The captain/host should be able to assign players on seniority. So, captain can give console/host to the other next in rank for whatever reasons (disconnects, have to exit, etc.).
