True, the "teammates snatching your sub" thing is pretty lame.
So is the "sub surfaces if you exit while it's partially submerged" thing. You should be able to stand on the conning tower while that's all that's poking out of the water.
Then again, it'd be '1337 to have an airtight compartment inside the sub -- when you enter the sub, you'd just get a seat at some random sonar station that didn't do anything, but let you actually put more than 1 person under water with the sub (yeah, I know it's not possible, I've been told before, but it'd still be '1337.) Oh, and subs should be able to launch elco rafts, but that's different.
As was said, if the conning tower is a position, and the helm (#1) position can only be accessed from the conning tower, you might be on to something. You could still have other positions to spawn into, but no one would be able to hijack and dive the boat while the captain was on top.
Same system as for the artillery in certain mods - you can only get to the driver's position through the gunner's position, so if someone's manning the gun, the thing can't be hijacked.
I don't know if it's possible to block the conning tower position while the boat is submerged, though.
Why bother? You don't block the captain's position in battleships...
I just wanted a better way of scanning the seas rather than, as someone said before about FPS gaming, 'looking through a drinking straw'. Kinda like what I wanted for the AT guns in a previous post. Something like the position for the driver of the supply ships but with 360 vision. Not to mention the "Hunt for red october" headed out to sea scene coolness feeling it would give with the flag waving an all that stuff.

Thats easy,, just stay down long enough to drown their butt.:rofl:
4 persons in the sub. the captain how say: Dive, Up, Left ,Right (and Fire) with the arrows on the keyboard, he looks trough the preiscope, and in the tower over surface. the we have the man how controls the sub, at he see it from the in site of the sub, and can look around. the 3th is the gunner how also kan look around the sub, and fires th torpedos when the captian say: FIRE. The last person is the radio man, if the game will have radiomen. and he sits in a room, on a chair with a microfon at a teble, (he can look around) ?
I love Fuzzy's idea about subs being able to launch elco rafts. That way when someone steals your sub they can give you the courtesy of a raft so you dont get stranded in the middle of the ocean ;)
Seriously though, it would be a great feature.
How many of the average idiot gamers would ACTUALLY bother to give you that raft though>__
