    spawning or exiting the hoverpod over water has some fun effects :

    I'm a bit too tall for it though

    They work perfectly fine underwater :) they do tend to do a complete head over tail flip from time to time but they recover immediately

    It seems to go a little better backwards underwater, less flipping over. I'd love a submarine vehicle.

    I turned my hoverpod into a Submarine pod!

    Guide to do this (and info for devs): drive over water, get out, let it sink, get in, then it hovers on sea floor!

    It is fun, but it doesn't work well on a rough seabed. Smooth it seems to work well.

    I tried out the subpod at PA, since I knew the substrate was fairly flat there. I was able to drive all the way thru the monster-infested waters to Jennifer's Island. Very fun.

    Can be done anytime when you are in water, no need to be at a spot where you must first "dive in" ...

    It is actually a nice feature for the hoverpod to have since it resolves the issues of not being able to spawn veh on water when you dont have a boat. The feature will help out the Jori hunters a lot. :cool:

    To activate the hoversub feature, just be in water, spawn the pod at water surface, once spawned, it will sink down to the sea floor, you can then get in and start hoversubbing. ;)
