Ok, log this into the "weird damage" bug, or perhaps its my Native American blood giving some smoke signals.... Saved game on patrol, load it back up and my conning tower is on fire. Well, heck, I am a firefighter, I know how to deal with this, dive! Absorbing 970 btu's per pound of water, I can put out one heck of a fire in the Atlantic. Well, the fire did go out when I went under water, but the smoke didn't stop. So here I am at 100 meters with smoke going up the water to the outside then rising at the top of the water then going on up into the air. When I come back to the surface the fire starts again, so not knowing if this will make me blow up I dive and surface all the way back to base with a great trail of smoke following me. Weirdness. Took a screen of the smoke but don't know how to post it here.

Nah - just a bug - happened to me a couple of weeks or so ago, and I've seen some other posts about this problem before. I had finished repairing all the damage that the crew screen indicated could be repaired - there was no active damage showing at all, but I still had fire and smoke. I dived as well, but the fire did not go out. The (apparent) mine that I had hit to cause the damage in the first place had also screwed up my propulsion somehow (although only my electrics were listed as damaged/destroyed - everything I could see that seemed to have anything to do with my diesels appeared to be OK but my boat would not budge) -I had to call for a tow via the magic esc key in order to get back to port.

magnesium constructed control tower with superhot inclusion pockets of heat that can reignite upon exposure to increasing temps and or sufficient oxygen.
