Forum Rules 07/06/2016Introduction 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.

I really like to see the Class Icons on the map, to know who's the LAT, Marksman, Medic, etc.... but i would love to know the direction people are facing, is it possible to make this happen in the future? Without the class icons you can see where they are facing, but i have to hover them to know their class... Can we get the best of both worlds into one? Just a suggestion on a little detail, thanks for your time
I believe that adding a stealthy or 'special operations' class to the game would change up the meta a bit. It could be similar to the scout, in that it is equipped with sabotage equipment such as IEDs or even a kind of adhesive anti-armour charge to slap on enemy tanks and surprise the enemy later on. They would have some kind of suppressed SMG or PDW for covert operations and would essentially fill the role of CQC flankers (They could also have some kind of insta-kill backstab knife attack but that would probably ruin the meta. Also, for all the people out there who think this promotes going off on your own instead of working in a squad, wouldn't it be better for them to be using a role specifically designed for roaming, rather than them taking up a valuable marksman kit that would be better used for supporting the squad). They would probably have about as much availibility as marksmen, as this would stop large swarms of them running off in all directions at once. I would appreciate feedback so I can refine and improve this idea and my future ideas (as this is my first idea).
I've bin searching for this topic on the forums and reddit etc, can't find anything about it so feel free to correct me. But one thing i have bin missing from Sqaud is the option to change the gun from from STD to ALT that is in PR https://puu.sh/u0re7/dee47dad91.png Since it is really nice to have the option to remove say only the optic on a gun in that specific roll. personally speaking i just do not use optics, as much as i can avoid it. One reason is that i just like iron sights, and the other is because it takes a lot of space on the screen. And it gives you big blind spots if you are not aiming down sight with optics. Example when not aiming down sight: https://puu.sh/u0swe/795361d7ed.jpg https://puu.sh/u0srj/266fe905c9.jpg https://puu.sh/u0syn/fceb1018c4.jpg So if it is not planned already, i'm suggesting bring back the option on few of the rolls to have a basic rifle with no optics. Example for rolls who i can see it useful for SL, gren, medic, LMG
I have a suggestions involving class/groups/clans - I think it would be very cool if clans or constant squad members could customize their gear, guns, uniform and symbol to the representation of a name or symbol. These would be like the clans that are in the top 100 in the leader boards. The clans or squads would have like a universal symbol of being good. Like Spetnaz, Navy Seals kinda title in squad. Like the whole game Titans idea Were you have grunts, then you have titans Like "Omg" we are playing or we are fighting with "so and so" clan. Famous tank clan, or sniper clan... etc... Ya know? I am not editing this*
SILENTMP posted a topic in Feedback & SuggestionsThe US Army needs Parachute Flares on the M203 kit. That way we can illuminate areas with 203's. Flash lights on weapons, rifles, pistols, which can blind insurgents in buildings. The insurgent class won't get flash lights. Red lights also so you can see but don't give as much of your position away. Night vision. Maybe a way to compensate for the USA flash lights and night vision the insurgents get more men i.e., 60 vs 40, or 55 v 45. The insugent class can move a little faster due to know body armor. 7.62 rounds bigger and more leathal than 5.56. The insurgent class gets motor bikes. If there are civilians added with a little AI, insurgents can blend in with them and conduct a surprise attack. Penatlys for killing civilian AI. Afghan and their alert dogs are every where in Afganistan. Please include them in some compounds. Insurgents rpg class gets 5 rockets vs 3.
One of the best parts about Battlefield 2 was the ability to Grappel anywhere, however I foresee that it will be a lot harder to do if a certain level of quality is wanted all around. As BF2 did, it sort of shrunk the player model and all kinds of clipping would occur (personally as long as the feature is there I don't mind) but I'm interested to know if a plan is already in place for the system or whether or not it is to be cancelled?
Custom Named Loadouts For Each Class 'Loadouts' are a core component of FPS genre (for the sake of variety); even if they are not editable or customisable by players. Loadout features of 'similar games' (personal opinions): Insurgency (Loadouts can't be named, can't be saved, despite a nice choice of equipment per class)Project Reality (Loadouts can't be named, can't be saved, come in options which are hard to distinguish due to minute icons on the spawn screen and some loadouts don't even have the barely readable icons - non spawnable kits)ArmA series (Confusing, slow, irresponsive but detailed) Squad could hopefully bring a loadout system combining the best features and learning from the mistakes of other games. Loadouts are often associated with tier/ranking/unlockable system but these don't have to be neccessary for a user friendly experience. What Makes A Good 'Basic'/Game Ready Loadout? These are only my opinions. I'm not saying they are correct or the best. Default Equipment (even if not customisable)Being able to give it a custom name and save it and also revert it to the default name (user friendly)Being able to recognise what the class contains without relying on tiny icons (some of which may be duplicated and a great and horrible example of this might be IIRC; PR's Iraqi insurgent faction's IED class with very different IEDs - being unable to tell which is more Mortar and which is a mine both made for very different purposes)Basic Weapon Customisation (Iron sight or scope, without mentioning pay 2 win ideas or unlockables)Basic Weapon Selection (Full length or Carbine version, new version or old version or calibre or similar expected weapons for faction class)Saveable customisation and selection features which can be given custom names or default names based on the classRestricted Weapon Access (not all classes being able to carry and use every and any weapon) What Makes A Good 'Advanced' Loadout? These are only my opinions. I'm not saying they are correct or the best. Customisable equipment slots (needing more field dressings or more grenades?)Equipment weight system impacting Stamina, movement and accuracyCustomisable or Selectable Apparell/Clothing/Armour/Fatigues (This may include civvie clothes, different cammoflague schemes/patterns/designs, Armour schemes, Head armour schemes)An expansive customisation of weapon features (Barrel mounted torches, bi-pods, bayonets and so on) There's obviously many more considerations and options and arguements or balances but I only intend this thread as an inspiration for the developers (hopefully) which has been born out of frustration with FPS loadout schemes. Other Considerations These are only my opinions. I'm not saying they are correct or the best. Team/Squad/Clan/Guild/Community 'patches' on equipment - possibly a source of development revenue without subscribed or pay 2 win featuresSome customisable or selectable apparell/Clothing/Fatigues might not effect gameplay and therefore it is a wasted effort - but it could also a be a source of development revenue without sunscrined or pay 2 win features.Customisable in game character/person/avatars - might not effect gameplay and therefore it is a wasted effort - but it could also a be a source of development revenue without sunscrined or pay 2 win features. I know little about game design but just wanted to share experience of FPS gaming over a duration of 13 years (too much gaming).
As a new engine brings new possibilites has there been any ideas so far that can be discussed about what they can do? Be it all new defenses like tank traps which can only be done by engineers with wielding gear, etc.? It was a shame in PR:BF2 how the engineer did not really do anything (I don't think I ever really touched the class) which I can guess was due to engine restrictions.
After playing PR:BF2 recently I remembered an idea I had for Project Reality 2 if it was to ever come to fruition. As many people know, when leading a Squad it is often frustrating to get everyone into a role the leader wants rather than people just choosing so the idea I had in mind would involve having a screen that comes up when you join a squad, in that screen: - STAGE ONE = It shows the Squad Leader (at the top or something) and then the number of slots below (for how ever many are in the squad). With the help of something like a dropdown box the Squad Leader would select the roles that MUST to be filled before any other, e.g. a HAT team actually having the Rocketeer, an Assistant Rocketeer and a Medic. These HAD to be filled before any other role is able to be chose. - STAGE TWO = Once those are chosen (however many the leader wants, he should even be able to completely design all the roles in the squad if wanted) he then opens how ever many other slots to like an = optional phase where the player in that slot has 3 or so CHOICES of role, e.g. AR, AAR or Rifleman. - STAGE THREE = After the final stage of having the optional roles if wanted, then there are the free roles slot wherein the player in the slot CHOOSES the role he wants (if available to the team/squad) which then is sent to the Squad Leader for CONFIRMATION. Personally, I think this system is the best way to handle the role selecting process rather than the old PR:BF2 days wherein you would have to ask people who might then not do it and just waste extra time. This entire screen could be done in the pre-game warmup time in which roles originally were selected and players could even save the templates to ensue that this is done instantly (which would be a great benefit to clan groups). Also having it update in real time with the limited classes for a team being shown (or even being able to request the kit from the commander if it were to be lost).
