    Ships that are stationary should fire with no accuarcy

    Your argument is flawed. Your talking (or providing google data) about fire control systems and stabilisation which I dont believe you fully understand. None of this stabilisation works when the ship is dead in the water .. the ship "will" roll and generally past its axis of gun depression causing much more difficult time with fire control and subsequently aiming and hitting a target. The below video is a High sea state but the concept is still the same. no forward movement no stabilisation of a ship. If you put guns on this bad boy and stop the roll by 75 percent it still couldnt hit anything unless launching a harpoon. .

    it would be good to see any form of implementation as it would add realistic real world movement. Cant wait to actually see the game one day but it would be good to get it right and stop the people that treat camping as a skill/perk

    They remained on station as part of a larger screen to do their job. Most large ships like that are normally the "Guide" where all other vessels keep station from them. They manoeuvred to stay on the station or position alloted but they were still making way and not dead in the water. Even a large ship with a flat bottom like that will still rock with a swell just not as much as a V bottom hull. Anyway this thread is digressing .. I still believe in my original comment as ive been there and done that. nothing worse that a ship (any ship) that is dead in the water. it becomes a vomitron! and as such in this game if they made accuracy bad when a ship is dead in the water it would stop campers

    velcro alone, didnt fix everything but velcro, cable ties and gaffa tape did

    A ship that is static in the water will have major issues with stability above and beyond that of a ship whilst under way in the same sea state. This is why the superstructure on a ship is normally constructed much lighter than the hull to try and ease weight and decrease the stability issues. When you introduce a larger swell from the beam (port or stbd side) a ship will roll excessively and violently because of the swell, thus causing issues trying to aim. Ships whilst underway have a gentle pitch and role motion and are a more stable platform. Aircraft carriers used to regularly loose aircraft over the side during world war II due to weather and sea state. Modern day pilots have a different job than those of WWII era. aircraft undercarage is alot different (WW2 mainly tail draggers) and the platforms they are landing on are much larger and a lot more stable now. WW2 landings were generally onto aircraft carriers that were travelling as fast as they could go "into the wind" which was generally into the swell head on thus stopping the carrier form rolling to port or stbd as much. The original aircraft carriers were made by putting platforms on colliers and other warships which themselves were designed to have a low centre of gravity and with the platform(landing deck added) these ships were inherently unstable and if stopped in the open sea with a beam swell would roll horribly.
  9. A real warship never stopped when firing because the platform become very unstable and guns could not fire accurate. when a ship stops it starts to roll with the swell. This will stop "Corner" camping. Carriers should incur damage to aircraft because of the rolling flight deck
