This is a suggestion from the perspective of a completely new player. Keep that in mind please. If you have been hanging around the faction or help chat any, you may see this post "CRAP...I have a leak and repair isn't fixing it." or may be "%#$@ $%#$@%^ #$@% I just sank to a leak I could not fix $@#!$##!!" Why, why is this so prevalent in new players? Simply put when your new in the game and you get a leak you think "repair". You have a leak, you want to repair it. The term "survival" means something different in many minds, it means to stay alive and is not directly related to repair. Sure repairing something could mean your surviving...but that is not the first thought that enters into the mind. I mean, when you replace a tire on your car do you think "I am going to survival my car!!" No...probably not. So to combat this ambiguity, I suggest a simple change to the wording of button eight. From Survival to Damage Control. Fire, leaks, and what may come all fall under the umbrella of Damage Control. And while Survival does work and may work in the context of the time period. This is a game and new players should understand that if you press eight, bad things will be fixed. Remember a new players first impressions will, for now, be made in combat. To feel helpless and to sink causing anger and frustration in your first fight because you do not know what button to press because it is not obvious leaves a bad impression. It is part of learning, but that curve can be lessened by a degree with just a small text change.
