Um, I think we've been all looking at the same videos and have all seen the same bottom, http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
However, I think it has been addressed that there will be no sea life in the water, unless you manage to down a seagull with the 20mm AA

I doub't you could call that sea "life" then, could you?

It's a shame. I'll be spending most of my time on the sea floor.

i have a similar question. will the water get darker the deeper you go? there's no real point in using an external cam at the depth where it would be completely dark anyways, so i don't see why not. i mean in a modern sub game you might want to be able to see other subs, but in this game there would be nothing to see, so i think the effect of the water getting darker and darker would be cool.

also, what was the maximum safe depth of a U-boat?

It's as deep as you can go without risking being crushed by the pressure.

The maximum safe depth was about 210-220 I belive. However many u-boats safely went beyond that to 250 plus..However I think it was a gamble from one ship to another so I think most remained in safe depths..I dont think u-boat captains gambled as much as you see in the movies http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I have a question now..what is the maximum depth for modern day subs??

u-boats varied in how deep they could go.. depended on construction and damage..
as for modern subs.. well, that would be classified http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
but i know that the testing ground for most modern subs would be mariana's trench which is about 11,000m deep http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

YES! I have a video from a Dutch magazine, which, after contacting them, i unfortunately cannot post, but they go in external cam and follow a sinking british ship down and it gets very very dark, and you also hear crushing noise etc.

you are crazy. there is only one sub that has EVER gone to the bottom of the mariana's trench and that sub was the Trieste. and that sub is the only one capable of going there. the next sub in terms of max depth isn't anywhere close to the Trieste.

also, i am assuming the max depth of 210-220 given for U-boats is in meters?

And Trieste wasn`t a real sub but batiskaf.

Max depth for most modern subs is about 500-600m.
