true these moments tend to be pretty hectic
but im fairly confident that there are times the scuttle aoe doesnt appear
and as that is the only warning that the ship is in the process of being scuttled it causes some problems

maybe also make it a bit more obvious? add a sound?
lots of small snappy explosions that get faster as it gets nearer to the big boom?
the sound of the breaching charges going off and destabilizing the ships reactors
