I'm in my first storm, 15mps winds, actually being submerged in the conning-tower. First time we went under I actually felt a pang of genuine alarm! Incredible immersion (har, I worked that one in right on the money http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif ). Next thing I'm looking forward to is rain.

Before the sea got really heavy I was chasing a British merchantman and he was jigging like crazy. I dead-eyed him with a fish from about 300m and hit him square in the mid-ship. Big explosions and he settled evenly and sunk. Wow!

This sim is really quite a piece of work. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

The wide and varied way that some of these ships sink is also well programmed.

For the very first time a saw another variation as a Class II Destroyer got hit in the bow from one of my torps and it didnt blow up, no smoke or flames it just carried on sailing but sank as it did more like a submarine diving.

Another Destroyer took a torp broadside amidships and blew up with a fantastic fire ball and blinding white flash with debris flying in all directions, suffice to say...it sank immediatley after LOL.

These graphics are the best I have ever seen for stuff blowing up in any game along with all the sound effects that accompany it.

Note about torpedoes:
Torpedoes did not do ships any good...any good at all in fact. The hole they made in many instances could be as large as 15 foot by 20 foot across!
The water surrounding the explosion actually buffered it and the fantastic water pressure blast created by the explosion literaly ripped open the side of a ship as if it were a sardine can taking a point blank shotgun blast !
