I saved my game and im in a little trouble..any advice would be appreciated. I just got depth charged which resulted in severe flooding in the aft compartments. My damage control team stopped it, but my boat is stuck on the bottom at 150 meters. I told the chief to blow ballast and it didnt do a thing. Is there any way to do like they did in das boot and pump the water into the ballast tanks then out...any ideas?

I want to say if you keep your damage crew working on the compartment they will pump the water out on their own atleast thats what they did in the Type XXI i took for a spin in a quick mission when i was depth charged and sunk to the bottom of the shallow coastal area

Have you checked your compressed air? What other damage did you sustain? If your machinery is damaged, you will have to wait for damage control to fully repair it before you can blow any ballast.
I'm not sure if it helps, but when repairing machinery spaces, I always make sure at least one officer, two petty officers (machinery), are on the damage control party.

Yeah, your just gonna need to wait and let the water get pumped out. Make sure you're not on silent running. There should be something when you click on the compartment that gives you "Flood Recovery". You're lucky, today i had one lucky DC explored right near my Electric motors. It knocked them out completly and i had flooding in my rear 3 compartments. I started to sink quickly and if i surfaced i would have been done for sure. I had to rotate the repair crews and blow balast just to slow the boat from sinking too fast. After the comparment were repaired they pumped out the water and i sat motionless at about 170m. The 2 escorts kept DC my position but were too shallow and figured i was dead and left. I had no electric motors and depth of over 1000m. you're kinda lucky you got that floor.

You don't run out of CO2, you get a massive accumulation if it, which in turn suffocates the crew http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
