Realism must be compromised in a game but I would suggest something to be, maybe put to test. My suggestion is that when my ship, or the enemy's, is shot and takes on water, to have increased heel on the offended side. Would be possible to improve this effect ? I am sure it does not happen. For the sake of me being mistaken - and in truth the vessels not being compartmentalised like later age of steel architectures - I also appreciate other players opinions on this subject.
With the introduction of heeling to such an extent I believe it to be time that we have realistic listing models. Most ships in this game should list when taking on more water on one side than the other due to their compartments, rooms, etc. Certainly some ships wouldn't list because their hulls didnt have such compartmentalization on purpose or not. Listing would add a new dynamic to the game in the way that leaks become critical should they be ignored. As the ship lists new leaks would occur as old holes in the ships submerge, escalating the situation further. As the ships list further cannons would be disabled as they go under water, or are elevated too much to be of any use to the battle. Further graphic development is also a plus, as sinking ships currently just look stupid as they sink flat. A listing ship would truly be a more REALISTIC, and graphically pleasing element to the game.
