Appears that Flash Fire chance does not take into account lack of shells.


Recommended Posts

Played a game and all the main guns, secondary's were out of ammo so I closed in the the four 3" casemate guns at half ammo and got flash fired.   I take it the game does not take into account number of shells used for flash fire chance, or what ammo is exploding.

Nice discovery. I hope Dev’s can work in a scaling factor that diminishes flash fire chance based on ammo stock, like something that ends up with zero chance with zero ammo.

Could base reductions on yellow and red ammo stock markers too e.g. at yellow mark = -50% chance, red mark -75%, zero ammo -100%.

Yeah, as long as it is gradual.

It would be weird if a ship with 74% of its ammo had a 50% flashfire and one with 75% had a 25% flashfire.

But I agree with your ideas.

Make sure to bring increased shells, especially to big ship battles. If the enemy isnt severely cripped by now, that ship is essentially useless.

Admirals, 

 This is a known lacking feature, we will do it in the future according to our priorities

I don’t know for sure but red text ammo highlights at 10% left and maybe yellow highlights at 20% left , don’t know actual margins.

So e.g. at 10% ammo left then that would a -75% (minus 75 to the current chance e.g. if 5% current then that would be 5-75%=1.25) chance of flashfire/detonation.
