As the cyclone comes with a lot of water, anyone think it should low the chance of catching fire and extinguish the fire on ships?

I know the cyclone is only the weather effect, but do you think it make more sense if it has some more influence to the game according to real life physics?

Real life physics would include penetrating shells starting fires below deck where there would be little suppression by weather effects outside the ship. Also Real life would mean a naval battle would not occur within a cyclone.

maybe a cyclone can low the HP of the ships to make the battle more intense. Well, most of the fire in this game are on the deck. Maybe the bow and stern don't receive the benefit but the middle two does?

How about making cyclones prolong flooding times by one extra minute?

 

Mind, water is not the omni-extinguisher- Use it on an oil or electric fire and you're going to have a case of even more fire.

Fire on a ship took a lot more than a water to extinguish. US ships use CO2 and other technique to put out fires.. And if you use water alone, well.. Look at what happened with kaga,akagi, soryu and hiryu.

Fire on a ship isnt just going to go out with water. Ships are not made to burn easily and fire is their worst enemy. Ships carried non-detonation items that did catch fire, oil and lubricants for one. This took a lot more than water and was usually deep in the ship itself which required fire teams to extinguish.

 

I honestly doubt that cyclones could reach the internal of a ship, or even worse a water plume. I know this is not a simulation game, but there should be limitations.

How many times have I read this is not a sim but an arcade type game now everyone is coming up with real life reasons for water not to work cmon you cant have it both ways

This game is "loosely" based on historical and real life facts

Isn't cyclone just make the fire worse?

Some from column, A some from column B

upper deck fire - maybe, lower decks - nope just makes life harder.

 

(p.s. if you want realism the the cyclone would stop all fighting as everyone ran to survive - shells hurt, cyclones sink you)

Water does not put out all kinds of fire. Just sayin'

 

The only type of fire water does not work with is an electrical fire. Water usage is preferred for normal fires, oil fires (although PKP type extinguishers are used too), and metal fires (water is the only thing that will cool burning metal down from its flash point). A major storm at sea will in fact help, not hinder fire fighting operations on a ship. So yes, it should have a chance to reduce burning time and reduce fire chances in this game. If the storm reduces visual spotting range as low as it does (though radar equipped ships can spot further out), it should have a similar affect on fires and fire starting.
