In general, I have not been able to put out a ship's fire on my own ships, and have lost at least 3 in this manner. In general, I have set fire to AI ships in missions numerous times, and they always seem to be abe to put out a fire, even in multiple instances for the same ship in the same battle. Can someone weigh in on the probability of fire initiation, both for human players and AI ships? Also, how does the probability of fire extinguishing work? Is it dependent on crew strength? Or is all of this competely random? If it's currently random, I'd like to see some tiny probability added of potentially hitting a ship's magazine and immediate explosion, with results of total ship loss or else massive damage. Gives a possibility of turning the tide of battle. Also, it'd be nice to see a probability increase for fire whenever a cannon is taken out by opposing gunfire. I actually saw a large spark fly off one of my cannons recently, which implied increased probability I would catch fire.....fortunately that time I didn't Probably could be some enhancements made to how fire is handled in the game. Anyone want to comment or help clear up the smoke here? Thanks in advance.
