  1. Hey, squaddies! Welcome to April, soldiers! We’ve passed through the most foolish day of the year without any explosions, so we’re going to chalk that up to a victory. Did you fall victim to any pranks? Or did you combat engineer something up for the roomies?

Submit your event to see it featured here! OFFWORLD OUT.
  2. [RESOLVED] Font?

    Roboto is the other font we use a lot of. If you're on Chrome, WhatFont is a pretty cool extension, by the by. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/whatfont/jabopobgcpjmedljpbcaablpmlmfcogm?hl=en
  3. Skins not showing up!!!

    Steam Integration is one of those things that tends to get a little busted each time we do an engine update -- we're in the middle of doing an engine update right now. It's on the agenda for fixing, once and for all, but we have some work to do to get there first. Don't worry though, the skins are still safe and sound.
  4. Helicopter Joystick Support

    TrackIR support is still more of a "nice to have" thing, so that's likely to be further out. Control improvements should start getting prodded once the tail rotor component is in, which is coming in b19. (The theory being, having the flight mechanics in place first should make the next steps easier to build on, etc.)
  5. UE crash

    Since it sounds like you're doing all the right steps already, I'd like to refer you to support@joinsquad.com. Our technical team should be able to get you back in gear with a little more 1-on-1 support. Sorry for all the trouble! We appreciate you doing all the self-support steps. =)
  6. The Wrench, March 2020

    Trying to wake r0tzbua up, maybe he'll tell us soon. =D
  7. Beyond the Wire Joins the OWI Family

    It's Redstone Interactive's game, so the Squad team has no influence on that. If they want to offer it to folks early, that WOULD be cool, but up to them. =)
  8. Graphics settings -> compromise of fps and quality

    Not sure. We don't have an API in the sense that you're thinking, I suspect. You can access our SDK on the Epic Games Store for free. It sort of sounds like you might be confusing us with the Unreal Engine.
  9. COVID-19 is here, where's SQUAD-19?

    Yeah, just to fill out some of what Dubs has said: the timeline isn't fixed yet, because we've had a launch blocker or two. We've resolved most of them, but server performance isn't there yet -- hence some weekend stress testing. (And why the testing was limited.) Once those results play out, we should be able to move into broader testing. We're at the point where it needs to scale up to keep the bug smashing flowing, so it shouldn't be long now. We certainly wanted it out by now, but we want it out playable first and foremost. =) We recognize this has been a long one and need to address that internally, so there's work going on there as well. Further, as it's bug-fixing that's holding things back from further testing, the other parts of the team are continuing to work ahead, so nobody's idle. (And adjusting well to working from home, for that matter.)
  10. Hey, squaddies! We’re nearly at the end of another month! How many of these things are there anyway? No matter! There’s Squad to play no matter what month it is. Let’s see what’s in store for the weekend in the Round.

  11. Admin abuse at caroleans server?

    We generally encourage reaching out to the admin team of the server first, as misunderstandings absolutely do happen, or the wrong person gets nailed based on the kill scroll -- heat of the moment trying to protect servers and all. However, you can escalate to our team if necessary. We have some guidelines on that here, including a report form at the bottom of the post:
  12. It's possible, and I think it's happening through the optimization process -- as well as tweaking and removing some of the more annoying ones where it makes sense. I know the team has looked at making some more binary states for things like fences: up and down, making it easier on replication and, thus, the server and clients attached to it. At a higher level, I believe there's also work to clean up a lot of blueprints and cross-references to make specific tweaks like that easier, have less testing required, etc. It's not necessarily a focus right now, versus optimizing overall, but it is a thing we can continue to improve on.
  13. Xbox Series X Complete Specs

    Not quite -- it's something we'd LOVE to do, but still have to investigate how possible it is. Finishing on PC is the first step before we do that, especially with the more controlled process of releases on consoles and such. (I don't think we've even explored what it means to be an Early Access game on a different platform than Steam. We also have some requirements that use Steam, so there's work required there too.) We're not gonna rule it out, but we don't want to set your hopes unrealistically either. <3
  14. Hey Squaddies! We have some exciting news from other parts of the Offworld universe: a brand new game! Beyond the Wire has just been announced by Redstone Interactive, a brand new studio that has chosen Offworld as a publisher! Redstone Interactive is setting out to take on World War 1 in a way that will delight gamers, history buffs, and hardcore combat fans alike. In other words, grab your trench club and get ready to have fun blast fighting through hell with your friends! On the bright side: no trench foot included. We’ll let them handle the details, but just in case you have a few questions: WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR SQUAD? Apart from having a new possible game to enjoy, Squaddies won’t see much, if any, impact on the game they already know and love. While you might see some familiar faces over there, Redstone Interactive is making Beyond the Wire, so you still have your Squad development team kicking ass every day. Offworld Industries will be serving only as a Publisher and we are continuing to grow our own team every day! (You might remember Post Scriptum, another fine game brought to you by OWI and Periscope!) Heck, OWI is hiring if you want to help out. WILL SQUAD GET BEYOND THE WIRE FEATURES? While Beyond the Wire does use Offworld game engine technology, it is a standalone game made by Redstone Interactive. There’s always room for collaboration and inspiration, but we are different teams working on different games with different styles. CAN I HAVE IT NOW?! Whoa there! It was just announced, but we do appreciate the enthusiasm! If you want to get involved, you should check out the Redstone Interactive site and become part of their community! They’ll be the best resource for progress updates, testing opportunities, and all the eye candy you could ever want. You should also wishlist them on Steam, of course. WHERE CAN I LEARN MORE? In addition to the Redstone Interactive website, you can find them on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. Choose your favorite and get the latest updates as they happen! B19?!?!? Well, that’s an entirely unrelated question, but since you asked: the last test turned up a delay in the server that’s blocking wider testing. After that, we’re at the point that we need to scale up and really bash on the patch. We’re almost there! But to reiterate, Redstone Interactive is a different company than the Squad team. =) OFFWORLD OUT.
  15. Squad Up with OSD

    Hey squaddies! As so many of you know and have been part of, we love taking the opportunity to give a little back to the folks that risk their lives in the real world locations most of us only see online. We’re proud to announce we’ll be continuing to grow that effort with Operation Supply Drop this year! We’re just getting the groundwork laid for now, but we’d encourage you to head over to Tiltify and sign up for the Squad team: SQUAD UP FOR THE TROOPS! As we get a little further into things, you can expect some of your favorite Squad streamers to get involved, and we may even have a little fun with some upcoming events. Anything you can do to help OSD in the meantime is awesome, though! Want to know more? WHAT IS OSD? Simply put, OSD is a way to get games into the hands of the troops. With roots in simply mailing care packages to troops in the field, Operation Supply Drop has grown into a veteran support ecosystem that helps military folks through their entire time in and out of the service — something games can be a huge part of! The best place to learn more (and check out the ways to participate) is their website: http://weareosd.org We’re still on the lookout for more international organizations, so drop us a line in the comments if you know of one! GAMES TO GRUNTS The wonders of the internet have made getting games to the troops a little bit easier and, thanks to Games to Grunts, a whole lot more affordable! You’ll have to make an account with them, but you can snag some Offworld Industries titles completely free! (We promise we won’t be jealous if you check out Post Scriptum.) SQUAD POST SCRIPTUM OFFWORLD OUT.
