Pressure and diving deep update

Ok...its complicate to discuss realistic handling with diving deep, water pressure and everything in connection with that in a fictional game but in my option there could be a more realistic "game pressure update"
It's not logical that the nonupgraded seamoth gets demage under 200 m but the play can swin under with a normal diving suit 200...300...400 m
It's even not realistic to use the air bladder for deeps over 100 m without getting hurt or become ill by nitrogen narcosis.
My suggestion are a more realistic feeling with water pressure. So if you want to explore deeps over 100 m you need to upgrade your diving suit like you use to do with the seamoth and other vehicles. To fast surface will get you a nitrogen narcosis and demage.
Exiting vehicles over 300 or 400 m will kill you of pressure unless you don't a an upgraded diving suit. More than 500 m are only discoverable with vehicles. What do you say?

    That this cuts into some 70+% of the current ability to explore so I don't think the loss of gameplay is worth the realism. Diver's disease might have something going for it by what I've heard of its current implementation in console, but I don't mind if it doesn't reach default gameplay.

    It is kind of weird the ability of our suite vs vehicles

    I'd not like to see much of any pressure realism. Rapid changes of depth cause problems even when you are in a vehicle, and it would be a significant impact to gameplay to have to stop every 100m for 2-3 minutes to "acclimate".

    I'd be fine with some severe depth issues, but there would need to be a non-vehicle correction for it, or Warpers would be able to insta-kill the player by teleporting them out of their vehicles.

    What about a Liquid breathing like in the Abyss Movie?
