Why is it necessary to have a guy tell us "your ship is on fire" and not "your ship is flooding" when we can see fire with our eyes but have to look a little harder to see a flood from the current view of the ship?  I feel like this should change

Hah. I thought this was going to be about people taunting you that they set you on fire with HE cancer spam.

I guess the crew is just some sort of flood spotting geniuses that can telepathically tell everyone there is a flood then fix it

The crew in the area of the flooding would sure notice it.

I agree.  And the crew in the area of the fire would be too.  Why tell me?  The player.  I already know im on fire.  See theres a "fake captain" telling us its on fire.  We are the virtual captain.  who is tell us this first off and why?  I see it.  My point is either announce both or dont say either.  I dont understand the logic

I always saw it as my 1st officer telling me everything. The anime captains aren't captains either, they're also first officers.

no its about the crew of the ship.  how does anyone even know theres a flood? 

Because there is water coming into the ship?  It would be pretty obvious.

There are crew throughout the ship, they report to bridge.

Im saying WE are told there is a fire.  WE can see it.  WE are not told of a flood.  WE have to look at the UI to see it.  I dont get the logic

I thought that was the point of the thread.  That there should be an audible cue for both fire and flood.  If there is not, I agree.

Alarm bells go off during the duration of the flood but yah that is a little weird.

Funny thing is I remember a voice line about the hull being breached, but maybe it was only on Seagal.

The framework for flood warnings exists, we use it in Mermaid's Wrath.
There's also cues for other things like torpedo impacts, and I think even some for engine speed that we might be able to tap into

@Rickjoshi1765 Maybe you aren't listening close enough. I hear We are flooding quickly or We are taking on water. The flooding triangle on the compass rose silhouette is a nice touch also.

Torpedo warning sounds and graphic  should give one a hint to expect flooding soon.
