I think that there are two areas where Silent Hunter V could make a big leap forward.
1)Disclaimer: I know the emphasis in silent hunter should always, quite rightly, be on the action out at sea BUT... this time lets make a little more out of the in port section of the game.... not just a command office. Maybe people could post realistic suggestions for this here on this thread?
2)Crew - Let's have proper Crew profiles.
Wouldn't it be great to be able to look through files of potential crew members /Officers? To be able to read a little about the officer's background and abilities - what he's good at and not so good at... and then, after surveying a few files in depth, to choose the man you want on your boat? Again, any other ideas or constructive suggestions guys?
