It's a good idea, but poorly implemented. I think in patch 1.3, they should rework this feature so that it shows a short action replay of your doom, so you can see exactly what happened, instead of just zooming and spinning around the ocean.

Death cam is quite funny, if you see the irony. In my eyes the death cam looks like someone in the Command Room fainting!!
You get this spinning view as your eyesight fades to black, and then it goes external view and your sub continues to fight quite happily on the surface -guns ablazing
It's like 'Carry on: Submarine' and Kenneth Williams (http://www.carryonline.com/carryonline/reframe.html?http://www.carryonline.com/carryonline/kennethwilliams.html) Screaming, "Infamy! Infamy! The Japanese have all got it in for me!" http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/34.gif

Yes Death Cam is all wrong Lol

Would you really? I wouldn't cos it is like watching a sub full of men doomed to die doing nasty things to them. That cam is for the Grim Reaper, not us. I am quite happy to watch the camera swirl round until you get dizzy.

A death cam whould be kinda cool. afterword it should say "present day" and show some scuba divers surveying the wreckedge and say stuff like, "brave captain, sank 24 ships".
or something like that, whould be better then just plain game over.

How about everything goes dark and you hear your crew screaming or praying. The ship breaking apart, water rushing in. Now that would be a death screen.

My crew just takes off all their clothes--it makes me rather homophobic.

That's a damn good idea! Shouldn't be hard for a modder to mod those sounds in, at least?

One thing that you should see is flooding. If the control room is flooding, you should see the water rising.

I like snortingbull-NGs 'future divers' idea. As for the screaming and yelling I'll pass. Maybe just a scene of an expanding oil slick on the surface...and destroyers blasting their collision alarms in celebration. Anything but what the game currently has.

When you're passing the crush depth of a submarine the crew's dead long before anyone has a chance to drown, you're crushed much like the sub.
I can't be certain, but I would imagine that death would be more or less instantaneous, unless you're in a compartment that somehow survives like the poor men on the Kursk.

That's the best yet!
If you had a visual reference that the sub was (going to be) doomed, then you could anticipate the...end.
As it is it's useless!
I emergency surfaced with a damaged,flooding sub last night. COMPLETELY breached through the surface and went on the bridge. Just about to check damage, WTF!!! I get the 'fainting guy in the command room' and it's over!! Now that's bollocks!!!! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_mad.gif The sub was floating and everyone could have got out.
This needs sorted....
