  1. What does this game do better than PR?

    It looks better too!
  2. Future plan of expanding team size?

    I had some really great matches with 200 players on Project Reality: These are old videos, but if the gamedesign is good, you can manage 11 people in your squad, and 9 squadleaders. We had split the teams into 3 platoons, and the communication was to some degree split between the SLs in teamspeak. And then the global channel for SLs was reserved for priority targets and Command/Platoon leaders. I am sure if this is something that can be accomplished gameplay wise on an engine from 2006, it can be accomplished in modern day squad. But the limit is server hardware/software, and client hardware/software. 200 players is really really immersive, since it increase the potential number of good squadleaders, and commanders. And it also just fills the map/sound combat with much more conventional tactics. Well atleast in the open, CQB fights usually work the same as they do with less players. Mostly it's about seperating the players, since noone wants to fight over 500m with 200 players, there should be roles for behind the lines troops aswell as objectives that spread out the effort of the team.
  3. this is weird

    BMP3 has like a 100mm slow velocity cannon, a 30mm and multiple COaxial mounts for gunners on the side etc. etc. I don't think you can compare it to the Bradley. I would say the BMP-2M is most similar to the Bradley, the BMP-3 is more like the old Sheridan IMO. Not sure if anyone agrees

  7. The commander's Choice is an open event, we invite all members of the great Squad Community to help us populate and play in this event. If you are interested in commanding, squad leading, or you just want to be a grunt on the frontline, join us! We are planning on hosting more of these, so if you did not make Commander or squadleader, or even grunt the first time around, feel free to help us organize and run this event for a chance next time! Map Information: The map will be Yehorivka AAS V1 US Team assets are: 3 Strykers, 2 HMMVWs, 2 transport trucks and 2 Logistic Trucks. Russian Team assets are: 2 BTR-80, 1 BTR-82A, 1 MT-LBM 6M, 1 MTLB 6MA, 2 Transport Trucks and 2 Logistic trucks. Event Information Each Commander will be in admin cam ingame, telling their team what to do, and will play the game much like a strategy game. They will be restricted to only view their own teams positions, and not use the admin cams ability to view all. We obviously know the admin cam can be abused, and will ensure both commanders have integrity aswell as running the server behind a password. Hopefully both commanders will stream allowing complete transparency. Each Commander will also be required to make a battleplan and maintain and organize their team as best they can before the battle. Server Information The server will be running from Free Candy Van 2, we run our servers from OVH on an Overclocked i7 7700k @ 5ghz, with 64gb of DDR4 ram and 2 SSDs, which should be more than enough to maintain the server. If you are interested in livestreaming the event then you are welcome to do so, and if you want us to promote your channel as you are streaming, reach out to us, but it is not required to stream our event. We will not permit anyone else but the Commanders to use admin cam. Rules Obviously standard FCV rules apply, with common sense being mainly the red line here. All squadleaders must follow commanders orders. All squadmembers must follow squad leader orders. All players must have microphones. Any issues will be dealt with Wicca. Rushing flags is permitted. Each team may only go to the last flag of the enemy team, but may flank to either side towards the enemy mainbase to attempt to disrupt supply runs. Signup Dates & Times All signups and organization will happen in the FCV Squad discord. Commander signup 16th of September 1800 UTC [FCV] Training, Task Force & Admin team Signup 19th of September 1800 UTC Player signup 20th of September 1800 UTC Battle 30th of September 2000 UTC

  13. Asset Rules

    If this is the wrong forum I apologize, I feel this is a general discussion that can be made about the squad community so I would just like to hear peoples thoughts on this. I recently added 2 new rules to the server I run, that you can claim APCs only if you name your squad APCs, and there can be only one APC squad. I also made a rule that gave anyone with squadname Logistics the ability to claim all Logistic trucks, for the purpose of building fobs and manning their emplacements. Although if no squad has named their squad Logistics, anyone can claim it. My intent with this is to have APCs be used more effectively as a team tool, as opposed to a squad tool (Although Mechanized infantry is awesome) and to give people who wish to do more fob oriented stuff the ability to support the entire team. My opinion on APCs is that if they are treated as a squad tool, they tend to be wasted faster, instead of when used as a team tool they would probably be working with other vehicles as well as being able to focus more on their tasks as opposed to the infantry squads task. Which is Transporting and light firesupport. I would like to ask, is this going to be hard to enforce? Will there negative tactical or team wide consequences to this change? If you think this is a good idea, why do you think it is a good idea? Are APCs used too much as light tanks? If we give people the ability to focus only on building fobs and emplacements will that be beneficial to the team, or will it never go to fruition?
  14. Asset Rules

    I have decided to take a very lenient approach to this new rule and just inform anyone with an APC about it, and then enforce it more strictly later.
  15. Asset Rules

    Well I am not enforcing this throughout the community, I am enforcing it on the server I manage. But I too think it will be an uphill battle in the beginning to enforce this.
  16. Asset Rules

    Actually you could even code that in python I beleive, for PR. It probably wouldnt be to hard to put into squad either. But that is up to Sgt.Ross and the team.
  17. Thanks Devs!

    Well deserved. I hope they get well rested and ready for the fall.
  18. Thanks Devs!

    Having a notification to the squad or SL when someone joines would be great, but understanding that Squad is in development I love this new feature! Great work devs!
  19. Post Operational Debrief

    in Project Reality there is this thing called Realitytracker, that replays the match in various speeds. Why not have that one show at the end at a certain speed: https://storage.googleapis.com/prdemoviewer/1.3/index.html?demo=c12_prep_2_burning_sands.PRdemo Then have the debrief time be 1 minute, before switching maps.
  20. Man I look forward to having the 40mm, and a forward observer. That will be so OP! Any vehicle that gets the drop on another usually wins.
  21. Backer Tag Redeem!

    I mailed support as you suggested.
  22. Backer Tag Redeem!

    I can't seem to be able to activate it, eventhough I have squad. I bought the company Clan 10 pack for 600 $
