  1. Really, really a novice here, but I've been enjoying how approachable modding is now. Just dabbling with Blueprints seems to have way more potential than they should, heh. Nice to have the tools really being built for everyone to use. I mean, it's no WadEd, but hey. =P
  2. "Memorable moments.. for a Noob"

    Welcome! Thank you for sharing, hah.
  3. Any chance of a modding wiki?

    IRC, Discord, and forums are all great places! They all have their benefits -- forums being searchable to almost everyone, Discord being great for real-time coordination and communication. Ultimately, though, they're not a permanent home for a guide. The good news is... there is a Squad wiki: https://squad.gamepedia.com/Squad_Wiki It is currently a bit light on modding, but that's the beauty of wikis. The current set up even recognizes modders and mod players have different perspectives: https://squad.gamepedia.com/Wiki_Organisation =) I would absolutely encourage everyone to check that out, add your thoughts, as well as join in on Discord if that's something you're up for. The modding community there is vibrant, and there's also a #wiki channel for assistance there too. =) We're also currently working with Zak to get some modding content directly into your faces via the blog. Fear not, we love you.
  4. Submit Your Battlecam!

    Hey all! Checking in to thank you all for your wonderful submissions. You folks know how to take a rocket, that much is for sure! There's a heck of a lot of video, and we're working to pick our favorites now... and it's rough going, but we'll, ah, soldier through. Cheers!
  5. Screen resolution problem

    While I'm not sure this is the same problem, there was a bit of a workaround for some DPI scaling issues discovered:
  6. Let's celebrate!

    You make a good point. We better delete posts until he's back down to 1000!
  7. "Ammo FOBs" Promote Unhealthy Gameplay

    Thanks for the post! We're definitely watching the effects of the changes from 9.6. There will no doubt be further tweaking until it feels right. =) What changes do you folks think could make this more fun? Short of reverting -- we've seen that already. =P Ammo bags, I think, are a good line of thinking there.
  8. Let's celebrate!

    Woot! Congratulations and thank you for being here. =)
  9. Yep, the Post Scriptum folks are an amazing studio in their own right and we're very excited to have them using Squad as a base for their project. We're definitely fans and players too. PS is going to be soooo much fun.
  10. Can clipping still be fixed or is it too late?

    It's never too late for fixes! New animations (like the ones from the recent mocap article!) and the system that support them should help here. Personally, I think collision issues can be a bummer of a way to put the icing on a bad run. Would love to do what we can to limit keyboard flips.
  11. View on kids playing?

    It's been debated a bit here: Ultimately, though, the standard ESRB line is "online interactions not rated." It occurs to me that paying attention to the younger Squaddie that has more time to play, learn the terrain, and isn't suffering from my broken body... might be the best way to go, hah. Support our youth; play a medic!
  12. The long awaited "monthly recap hype thread"

    Not likely to see a recap -- there's not much to report on since the last one, owing to the vacation. =) We do have some content lined up, though! And folks weren't necessarily idle on their holiday either.
  13. View on kids playing?

    Heh, I'll happily welcome anyone of any age if they're open and willing to play! They make way better squadmates than anyone spending time talking down, imho. Welcome!
  14. Heh, it's not a solution, but it always makes me feel better to know that I can log off; they still have to live with themselves with the game is over. It's worth calling out and thanking everyone that stays calm and collected with folks like that. Heh, when you're stomping their FOB, actions *definitely* speak louder than words. Props to the good SLs out there!
  15. Submit Your Battlecam!

    Hi Squaddies, Calling all combat camera operators! Do you go above and beyond in the heat of battle to come back with the goods? Have a hot run you've been just dying (heh heh) to share? Good news! This one is for you. There's no shortage of squaddies out there sharing their favorite moments with us, but that's just not good enough. We want to share those moments with everyone. Our crack team of video wizards will compile 3-5 minutes of the choicest moments to be featured far and wide to the entire Squad community! What You Need to Know: Share your clip in the discussion thread! (Right here, silly.) Keep it short and sweet! We'll pick our favorite submissions starting August 7, 2017. Our video team gets final edit! Have fun, dagnabit. If you can, provide direct access to your full HD video. Keep your choices limited to 2-3 clips. Highlights, not portfolios, please.
