I would like propose a new option for the hated death screen for U-boats. In cases where the U-boat has not filled with water in every compartment, but when the boat is indeed not going to be able to recover, I would like to be given the option to CONTINUE.

I was sunk the other day by aircraft that caused my engine room to flood. I submerged in the attack and found that I could not stop until I hit bottom (it was like a replay of Das Boat!) - I was getting hoping I could pump out the water (is there a pump?)and I was planning on trying to blow my tanks with air when the room in question totally filled to the top with water and suddenly I saw the death screen! Even if my boat was unrecoverable, I would like to have the option of just sitting on the bottom as the air fills with CO2 in the other non-flooded parts of the ship. I'd like to be given a chance to WASTE my time on the bottom dying slowly.

You can do aslong as you dont allow a compartment to be totally destroyed. Make sure the compartments with the cross in a square counting down have a repair team in them. Juggle the team around if need be, you should be able to stop the timers running down to zero.

If you had done this you probably could have saved your boat http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif
