Ship-to-ship towing.
« on: February 11, 2018, 04:44:17 pm »
After playing a recent game where the person sailing our ship went afk and in doing so wedged our ship between two land-masses. Due to our ships not being able to reverse, we had to push our ship out of the gap by a bumper-cars method of using rowing boats.

Being able to attach ropes to larger ships from rowing boats to tow them out of such difficulty would be incredibly helpful in this sort of situation.

Make it so that the other captain has to accept or just don't add it at all. The magnificent ways one could use this to ruin a crews day are countless.

War thunder has the system of towing tanks, both players need to consent to a tow in order for it to work. That would work very well.
