Somekind of whistle when being pursued by enemy vessel

Can we add somekind of whistle when you're being pursued by an enemy vessel.
Sometimes when I'm evading I forget to keep an eye out for sea and I get engaged in battle that I would've turned around from.

Since we already have a lot of whistles maybe we can add a diffrent soundeffect to it like Harr harr! (pirate-themed) This will let the crew know when pilly'ing that they're about to enter a battle and also will let an evader know that he needs to turn.

Let me know what you think about it

I completely agree. In fact, well over 5 years ago, I wrote a program to watch my chat log and beep when I'm being pursued. I have all the other noises from YPP turned of, but this is one thing I think is important enough to make noise over.

For me, making a noise is important when I'm doing trade runs/evading and as a jobber on a pillage. I do (or did) a lot of gunning and I wanted to be woken up when I was about to get busy again.

Re: Somekind of whistle when being pursued by enemy vessel

I totally agree. I do a lot of moving commods for other players, often solo on an MB, so I really don't want to risk losing any of their stuff by getting in a battle. Sometimes I get puzzle blind in the nav puzzle and forget to watch for attacking ships. Even if I am watching, sometimes the colored oceans (special effects) make it hard to see that lighted ring around the ship. I usually end up making the ocean normal colored.
I usually run ypp without sound, but this is one sound effect that I would definitely enable.
