Personally I don't care much for submarines and sealife in a flight sim.
What Flight Unlimited did was when you crashed in water the screen went a
murky water color and your altitude starts heading for negative figures.
No fish, no sharks and no coral but you get the point that you just crashed
into water and that should be sufficient in my opinion.
If someone wants to make a submarine simulator then they are welcome to make a
fork of FlightGear and name it SubGear but I'm interested in aerodynamics and
