    I was very excited to read in the recent live chat that we can navigate our way through the minefields.

    It say's you can use the external camera for this,but as i'm aware mines used to sit on/just below the surface and would feel far more relistic/tense if you could stand on the bridge and spot them!!!

    Secondly,there was no mention of weather you can get through the sub nets,again in deep water could these not be dived under?,perhaps at near crush depth to add excitment,of course they also used the scissors on the front of there boat,I HOPE THIS IS AN UPGRADE,because the option to access new an uncharted water by either dodging mines of cuting your way through subnets would add longivity to the game and quite frankly be superb(knowing your the only sub to access the area on an unsuspecting enemy)

    Also i wanted to discuss the damage model,that is to say the external damage model....i would like if my sub has been in the wars for it to look like this and reflect the damage accoringly like in games like IL2 etc.It gives me great satisfaction limping home in a beatern up sub perhaps having to push it to avoid an encounter with a destroyer...

    I don't think i can say the same.. but i see your point.. i would like to see a broken off dive plane for example when its seriously damaged. your ideas are sound, hopefully they'll incorporate them in the game

    I think that there was no mention of the manner you can get through or cut the sub nets, because the right way is to wait until they are retrieved to allow the passage of some unit.

    I bet that netcutters of u-boats were totally useless against anything different from simple fishing nets.

    I think they said someting along the lines that the nets will be unpassible objects.
    Well spotted about trying to go under them though.

    unless the bottom of the net is too close to the sea floor, then you really cant get through

    Since when have nets been deployed in deep water? Just how many deep water harbor entrances are there? They were used for harbor defense, and if they couldn't reach near bottom, mines or other defenses would be deployed underneath, so there would be no diving under w/o grave danger. And they weren't thin fabric fish nets. They were thick twisted woven steel.

    And I readed that only a few submarines had netcutters. I think, that it was mainly the VIIB, the one used by Prien in Scapa Flow.
    If you just went to 9 knots or something, wouldn't that just cut the steel wire? Or, like the doors "the less tough part is the lock", you could just destroy the place where the net is tied to, while passing by it.

    Nets are impassable in the game, no cutting!!

    I dont think anyone ever tried to cut through a sub net in real life anyway, i certainly wouldnt try it. Its like a fish swimming into trawler nets to see if he can fit through the holes!!

    OOOoopps no i cant, im stuck...
