      Forum Rules   07/06/2016

      Introduction   The Squad Team reserves the right to edit, update, add and remove rules at any time. Applicable rules extend to the PM system. Your PMs are private, but the Squad Team may be informed about unacceptable PM content by the receiving party.   Section I: Posting Rules   §1 Show Respect This community can only work if we all respect each other. To that end, it is imperative that any time you engage with another user, either directly or indirectly, you show them respect with the content of your post. In particular refrain from flaming, insulting, abusing, taunting, racism, and other similar types of actions towards other forum users.   §2 Attitude & Behavior Poor attitude and behavior are the most common ways a negative / unsafe environment is created and perpetuated. As such that kind of behavior will not be allowed on these forums. Please be mindful of this rule when posting personal positions and opinions regarding topics which could be considered contentious in nature. As a rule of thumb, keep your posts civil in nature, and refrain from making posts that are likely to incite arguments and create a negative environment. As a privately hosted web forum we reserve the right to maintain an environment that we are happy the majority of our players are comfortable with.   §3 Swearing While we will not strictly moderate every little swear that occurs, please try to avoid excessive bad language. The moderation reserves the right to remove rants and unsuitable content at any time.   §4 Illegal Topics
      Prohibited topics include, but are not limited to: Piracy, drugs (including cannabis), pornography, religion, racism, sexism, homo/trans -phobic content, videos and images showing violent death or serious injury, ‘spam threads’, hacking & griefing (endorsement thereof), religion, politics,  etc. Prohibition may be suspended for some threads if they are found to be suitable by the Moderation (such as scientific debate).
      If there is doubt, the Moderation Team can decide whether a topic is considered illegal.   §5 Attitude towards Squad and the Development Team
      As per §1 and §2, keep in mind to be respectful and reasonable, not only towards all users of the forum, but also towards the Squad Team and towards any ideas and content and the game itself. Criticism is welcome, but if it is not constructive and/or if it is offensive, the Moderation may need to step in. Please refrain from posting if you are upset, angry or drunk, or you may be punished for things you wouldn’t have otherwise written, which is not in anyone's interest.   §6 Language & Legibility
      Please post only in English. Non-English content (including non-legible content) may be removed. If you see someone posting in another language because s/he apparently does not speak English, please report their post - if you can, you may reply in their language to explain their question, but please do translate their and your message so it can be reviewed by the Moderation. ‘Hiding’ insults in non-English posts will be punished harshly. Posts written largely in ‘leetspeak’ or full of spelling / grammatical errors may be treated like non-English content. This rule does not extend to PMs.   §7 Forum structure & Search
      Please ensure when posting a new thread, that the thread is located inside the correct forum section. Check all forum section titles to judge where your thread should belong. Threads created in the wrong forum section will be moved or deleted.
      Before posting a new thread, please make use of the forum search to find older threads about the same topic. In doubt, it is recommended to rather post in an existing thread, unless that thread is years out of date. However, do not bump old threads without adding a new question / answer / insight that wasn’t in that thread before - use common sense.   §8 Thread Titles
      Please name your thread appropriately; the subject title should sum up / explain the content in the thread. If you fail to name your thread properly (such as ‘Hey!’ or ‘Check this out!’ or ‘Help!’), we will either rename or lock the topic. Repeated offense may lead to infractions. The practice of using CAPITALS only in your thread title is not allowed and will be edited or the thread will simply be deleted. Strange or abnormal Unicode characters should be excluded from thread titles for the sake of being distracting and unnecessary.
      §9 Thread Capitalization
      Please ensure that your post is not in all CAPITALS, as this is not allowed. Any threads posted in all caps will subsequently be removed from the forum. Repeated offenses may lead to infractions against your account. This practice is not approved or accepted here. 
        §10 Images in posts
      When posting images, mind the following restrictions:
      .gifs will be allowed and may be removed by Staff if deemed necessary.
      Maximum size for images is 1280x1024.
      Do not include more than ~1 large image per paragraph of text, unless in image collection / announcement threads. Link to further images.
      Consider posting thumbnails. You may post a few more images per post if they are reasonably small, the details are for the Moderation to judge.   §11 The use of BBCode
      It is allowed to use the BBCode in your posts. Over usage is not allowed. You may use the Bold in a reasonable manner but not for the whole text body. You may use the size feature but in a limited reasonable manner. You may not use any of the additional fonts at all. Color may be used to high light a point but again, not for the whole text body. Moderators will be watching for misuse and will edit when required without giving notice. Continued disregard for this rule will result in Moderator action in the form of warnings.   §12 Complaints of Server/Admin Abuse Reports of server/admin abuse will not be posted publicly. All reports concerning this type of behavior should be place in the appropriate sub-forum. http://forums.joinsquad.com/forum/241-report-server-admin-abuse/ All posts made outside of this area will be be removed.   Section II: Reporting & Moderation   §1 Reporting Posts
      There is a Post Report system in place. If you notice a post that violates forum rules, simply use the exclamation mark icon below the users avatar image to send a report to the Moderation. We will then review this post. Your report will not be made public and cannot be linked to your person by anyone outside of the Squad Team. You will not be punished for using the Report system even if the report was false, unless you repeatedly abuse the system to spam it.
      Do not ‘report’ posts by replying directly in public to them. In case of spambots, this prompts them to respond in turn, spamming the forum further. This also fuels flame wars and arguments.   §2 Reporting Moderators
      Moderators are subject to the same forum rules (and some additional rules / exceptions). If you think that a Moderator has treated you unfairly or is otherwise breaking forum rules, please PM the Lead Moderator or any Administrator. Do not accuse Moderators in public, the Squad Team will treat every complaint seriously and it is in our interest to discipline or remove Moderators who are known to break forum rules.   §3 Respect Squad Team members and Moderators
      Do not ignore or argue against Admin, Moderator or Dev instructions on the forum. If you have a complaint, as per §2, please inform the Team in private. You are expected to follow orders given by the Moderation, Administration and Development Team, and it is necessary for smooth running of the forum to respect their decisions. Being stubborn or ignoring warnings will lead to harsher punishments - however, we do not tolerate Moderator / Admin abuse of power / privileges, so do not hesitate to inform other Team members if you feel treated unfairly.   §4 Bans and multiple accounts
      If your account is temporarily or permanently banned, do NOT create another account. Bypassing a ban will result in further action, and a permanent ban of all of your accounts.
      You are not allowed to have more than one account for any reason. If you share an internet connection with another user who has their own account, it might happen that this account is incorrectly identified as a secondary account - please get in touch with the Moderation or Administration to resolve such issues.

    • agreed decoupling would be good as ive mentioned a few times my preference would be to have supply crates and build points where emplacements do not just disappear when a radio is dug down..they remain until either side digs them down..and are useable by both sides... so if enemy is pushed off an area with emplacements then enemy can use them .  No ticket loss but more importantly the strategic use of the weapons...or repair station etc...     still think habs should be capturable and transferred to enemy...
    • IIRC, the devs plan to make suppression scale by the distance of flybys & impacts, sometime in the future - For example, A round flying 10m overhead, will cause far less suppression than a round flying 1m overhead. Will help with the whole stray rounds suppressing you, or some guy just spraying wildly into a 10m radius and being rewarded with full suppression.    
    • Hello, I'am a veteran project reality player (mostly squad leader). I bough squad way back, but felt like i needed to give it some time for features to be brought in until could really enjoy it. With V12 this time has finally come all the pieces of the puzzle are starting to come together to make a truly enjoyable game. After a couple of days of intense playing i came up with these suggestions. Hoping for feedback on my ideas and suggestions.   1.) I love the idea of vehicles not begin able to drive off road without any penalties. I hope the effect of off road penalties (Rolling resistance) is amplified even further and some of the issues with trucks having a hard time climbing hills on roads  to be resolved. - Off road penalties should be more severe for all vehicles to give roads strategic value. - Off road penalties for wheeled vehicle should be in comparison to their weight. Conventional forces logitrucks should get more penalty than insurgent pickups, to balance out the capacity (this might already be implemented)   2.) Infantry should get off road penalties. At the moment natural choke points on maps have little strategic value. I believe making it harder for infantry to traverse swamps, muddy fields and swamps could add to the game play. Now positioning has less effect cause you can be flanked with ease trough almost any natural barriers. Implementing infantry movement penalties could give players more control and make enemy movements more predictable and "real". Of course ultimately it is up to the players to decide how and where to move, so you want to go trough a swamp for a flank, just go for it, but keep in mind that it's going to take some time. - My idea of movement penalties for infantry from lowest to highest: Asphalt, concrete, solid wood, graver, dirt, grass, sand, snow, mud. To offset this change in pace asphalt, concrete, wood and gravel could have higher movement rate than normal, again to promote the use of roads. - This is a pretty big change and could throw people off when suddenly their walk slows down for no apparent reason, so if implemented it might need a UI element to give players information on what kind of ground they are on.   3.) I suggest we should get a UI element that shows the names, kit, and distance of our squad members, in fire team colors and order. This although not begin realistic could serve as a way to give the player some simulated peripheral vision and make up for the fact that in real life you would know the members of yours squad and their role in your unit.   4.) This is minor and i hope easy to "fix". I personally hate that the camera tilts when free looking. I know this is what actually happens when you turn your head, but I don't perceive the world at an angle when i look from side to side. I can even lay on my couch and watch TV at full 90 degrees and still not get disoriented.    Can't wait what Offworld has in store for us in the future. 
    • Hi all,  Today I move my Squad files to a new steam files on my SSD instead of HDD like all my other games to increase my game launch speed, and for that it works. After that I clean my game cache, i cheched my Squad files and I launched the game and setted back my graphics and other settings like it was before.  So I tried to launch a game, but at this time all sounds effect in the game like bullets or just the Voip make my FPS drop from 50 to 10 and I got some freeze.  I didn't find any solution for my issue and nobody else had thsi bug after moving the Squad files from a disk to another one. So if you have any solution for this issues it would be amazing ! (Sorry if my english is bad) 
    • suppression works.... but is a little annoying when bullets are -20 mtres above your head and ure suppressed by random shots.
