my crew must be starving because they refuse to go outside in 15 MPH winds for fear of being blown away...

so I'll just sit here while they load a tube from the external stores so I can finish this bum off...

Hehe... I wonder what the In-game criteria is to restrict manning of guns...

7 m/s winds or some sort of heavy rain (I had 6 m/s winds once, but the precepitation was heavy, so I still couldn't man guns).

They won't man the deck guns at wind speed great than or equal to 7 meters per second, which is about 16 MPH.

It is hard to model how it look that can not manned gun. Had even you ride 200 ft boat in high wind? I used to go fishing party in big boat and I get idea how difficult to stay on boat in low profile as I stand high on fishing boat. Maybe some real sailor/seaman or commerical fishermen can post message about how danger it is.

It's been said and told how much of a danger it is and I agree.

With that, I should be able to ORDER my crew out to do it. May cost me moral, men or what ever but at least give us the chance.
Maybe it's too hard to impliment into the game, it's either on or it's off.

Yes, we should be able to man the Deck Gun in weather with wind speeds greater than 7 m/s, only with the following results:


1. One of your Deck Gun crew is washed overboard every 2.5 seconds.

2. You lose 500 renown points for every crewman washed overboard, and lost at sea.

3. Your accuracy drops by 95%.

Just to make it as realistic as possible but still give us the ability to order it.


Then, we won't get any more complaints about using the Deck Gun, in greater than 7 m/s winds, cause no one will ever do it!

Then again, maybe it's just easier to leave it as is, cause the above results will cause no one to attempt it anyway. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

......And instead of the Dev's spending their precious time modelling such ridiculous results, we could have some more important issues addressed, like additional/varied BdU radio reports. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif
