      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.

  2. Petite traduction du récap de juin 2018, pour ceux qui ne se sentirait pas trop à l'aise avec la langue de Shakespeare. Edit: Je n'arrive pas à afficher les images, toute aide est la bienvenue! " https://media.joinsquad.com/2018/July/Recap/june2018_carousel_image.jpg Salut les Squaddies! Bienvenue dans ce premier Recap officiel de l'été! Ça chauffe de plus en plus dans l'hémisphère nord, le haut commandement vous invite donc à rester sous la clim', à jouer à des jeux vidéos, si vous le pouvez! Faute de mieux, réglons le ventilo du logi à fond et passons aux choses sérieuses, voulez-vous! **Systèmes** Composants de blindés http://media.joinsquad.com/2018/July/Recap/vehicle_component1.jpg Depuis le dernier Recap, nous avons beaucoup travaillé sur le système de composants des véhicules, et nous l'avons enfin intégré à tous nos blindés. Ceci ajoute de fait de nouveaux points faibles aux véhicules à même d'être touchés, et pouvant potentiellement les incapaciter, tels que le dépôt de munitions ou encore le moteur. Si vous arrivez à pénétrer le blindage et à causer un dommage suffisant au dépôt de munitions, cela pourrait entraîner la destruction complète du véhicule, par exemple. Un coup au moteur pourrait lourdement réduire la mobilité de la cible, etc. Nous prévoyons déjà d'approfondir ce système dans les futures versions. Suppression Dans le monde des FPS, la suppression est un système connu pour diviser les foules. Nous sommes de l'avis que le système de suppression actuel de Squad est trop léger, et qu'il n'entraîne pas un malus suffisant pour les joueurs faisant l'objet d'un barrage intense, en particulier avec les armes de gros calibres. Nous aimerions introduire un nouveau système qui réduirait la capacité d'un joueur victime de suppression à engager une cible, sans être trop péremptoire ou agaçant, et sans créer de possibilités d'exploit. Nous avons ainsi testé et peaufiné le système de suppression tout au long du mois. https://streamable.com/wmw6x Nous avons aussi testé une mécanique de type "aim-punch", qui décale légèrement la visée d'un joueur sous le feu, ainsi qu'une augmentation temporaire du roulis (du "sway") de cette dernière selon le niveau de suppression subi. Bien entendu, ce système est encore en chantier et pourra connaître des changements et des améliorations. Refonte du système de spawn Le système de spawn des joueurs va connaître d'importantes modifications, qui toucheront les FOBs, les Rallies et les Revives. Nous détaillerons la refonte dans un futur post, mais en voici les grandes lignes. - _Mécanique de débordement des FOBs_: lorsqu'un joueur ennemi est trop proche d'un HAB, il est impossible pour votre équipe d'y spawner, et ce jusqu'à ce que le HAB ait été sécurisé à nouveau - dans le but de réduire drastiquement les phases de gameplay "meat grinder" et les spawn-kills qui sont devenus monnnaie courante avec le V11. - _Spawn en vague depuis les Rallies_: les membres d'une escouade auront désormais plus de chances de spawner tous en même temps, plutôt que un par un. - _Système de revive_: les revives se font désormais avec les Bandages, et non avec la Trousse de Soins (Medic Bag). Un joueur à terre peut être relevé par n'importe quel autre joueur ayant des bandages, mais cela prend plus longtemps que si un medic s'en occupait. De plus, le joueur relevé aura son endurance bloquée jusqu'à ce qu'il reçoive les soins adéquats par un medic avec sa Trousse de Soins. Nous avons aussi d'autres nouveautés de prévues pour le système de Spawn, que nous vous présenterons plus en détail dans quelques semaines. Le but de ces changements étant de permettre aux escouades de s'entraider plus souvent lorsqu'elles sont proches, afin de changer le rythme de combat. Interface d'utilisateur http://media.joinsquad.com/2018/July/Recap/ui_1.jpg Nous avons travaillé dur afin de vous apporter une refont complète du menu de déploiement in-game. Le processus est optimisé à tel point que les nouveaux joueurs seront accompagnés d'une étape à l'autre (rejoindre une équipe > rejoindre une escouade > choisir un rôle > choisir un point de spawn) de manière logique. Nous y avons aussi intégré un système vous permettant d'obtenir des informations sur le rôle choisi et sur son équipement, ainsi qu'un description détaillée de chaque arme et outils disponible (et en plus, vous pouvez voir à quoi ressemble votre personnage!). Groupes de Combat - Fireteams Nous prévoyons aussi d'introduire une première version des Groupes de Combat (GdC ou Fireteams). Pour faire simple, il s'agira de la possibilité pour le Leader d'escouade de séparer son escouade en plusieurs groupes et de leur assigner des Fireteam Leaders (FTL), avec leur propre éventail de marqueurs pour faciliter la communication visuelle. Im n'existe cependant pas encore de rôle spécifique pour les FTLs. Les GdC sont faits pour être flexibles dans leur utilisation, il en reviendra donc au Leader d'escouade de choisir comment gérer son affectation, en vue par exemple de donner une expérience de rôle de meneur simplifiée. **Art et Environnement** M1A2 Abrams, Tanks et Armes https://media.joinsquad.com/2018/July/Recap/abrams_1.jpg https://media.joinsquad.com/2018/July/Recap/abrams_2.jpg Nous avons aussi beaucoup planché sur la toute nouvelle classe de véhicules, à savoir les Chars de Combat Principaux (Main Battle Tanks). Le M1A2 Abrams, que vous aviez jusqu'ici pu voir immobile, peut désormais bouger et est correctement camouflé. Le système d'armes que nous avons modelé ne comprenant pas encore de système de visée moderne, nous avons donc choisi d'utiliser les optiques auxiliaires de l'artilleur afin de permettre des ajustements sur les longues distances. https://media.joinsquad.com/2018/July/Recap/abrams_3.jpg L'Abrams dispose de plus d'une position de Chef de char et d'une de Chargeur, toutes deux accompagnées d'un système d'arme sur tourelle. Le Chef de char pourra user d'une mitrailleuse lourde M2A1 Browning .50 Cal montée sur système d'arme à distance, avec vision à 360° et zoom. Le Chargeur, lui - bien que non nécessaire au fonctionnement de l'arme principale - ajoutera à l'arsenal une mitrailleuse exposée M240, avec plaques de protection. https://streamable.com/ninla https://streamable.com/powgy https://streamable.com/rbyjk Le Bradley a lui aussi été l'objet de quelques retouches, avec l'ajout notamment d'un réticule stadiamétrique pour l'artilleur, ainsi qu'une place de Chef de char avec caméra dotée de zoom optique et de télémétre. Sac de munitions pour Fusilier https://media.joinsquad.com/2018/July/Recap/ammobags.jpg Un autre option de kit très demandée sur laquelle nous travaillons actuellement, les sacs de munitions pourront être posés par les Fusiliers (Riflemen), afin de ravitailler leurs coéquipiers sur le terrain. Ces sacs pouvant être re-remplis à la Main, auprès des FOBs ou des véhicules auront une capacité de munitions limitée. https://streamable.com/cxwpy RPG-29 https://media.joinsquad.com/2018/July/Recap/rpg29_1.jpg Le grand RPG-29 va faire son apparition en tant qu'arme lourde anti-char pour les Insurgés, en complément du système plus léger RPG-7, et tire un gigantesque projectile à charge tandem de 105mm, avec plus de précision et sur de plus longues distances que son petit frère (500m contre 150m). https://streamable.com/ahh78 **Maps** Tallil Outskirts http://media.joinsquad.com/2018/July/Recap/tallil_1.jpg http://media.joinsquad.com/2018/July/Recap/tallil_minimap.jpg Une des intrigantes maps en développement se nomme Tallil Outskirts. Il s'agit d'une map de 4x4km, dans le sud de l'Irak, avec une base aérienne, de grands bunkers accessibles et de nombreuses positions défensives. Le terrain désertique est majoritairement à découvert, et bien que l'on y trouve quelques villages clairsemés, la map encourage les combats de véhicules. Les escouades capables de travailler avec leurs blindés seront victorieuses sur les champs de bataille de Tallil. https://media.joinsquad.com/2018/July/Recap/tallil_2.jpg https://media.joinsquad.com/2018/July/Recap/tallil_3.jpg https://media.joinsquad.com/2018/July/Recap/tallil_4.jpg https://media.joinsquad.com/2018/July/Recap/tallil_5.jpg _Mise à jour de Yehorivka_ http://media.joinsquad.com/2018/July/Recap/new_yeho_1.jpg Yehorivka fait l'objet d'une remise à neuf, à commencer par la zone jouable qui est désormais de 5x5km, ce qui ouvre bien des possibilités pour plus de profondeur et de variété dans le gameplay. Nous avons changé la méthode de rendering des feuillages, pour améliorer la performance, et la zone de Storage Site est remplacée par des villages et hameaux plus petits. https://media.joinsquad.com/2018/July/Recap/new_yeho_2.jpg https://media.joinsquad.com/2018/July/Recap/new_yeho_3.jpg https://media.joinsquad.com/2018/July/Recap/new_yeho_4.jpg https://media.joinsquad.com/2018/July/Recap/new_yeho_5.jpg En plus d'accommoder les gros véhicules, nous ajoutons plus d'éléments de couverture pour l'infanterie, avec plus de sites d'intérêt et des forêts et des fossés améliorés. Nous testons aussi un nouveau shader pour l'eau, qui devrait grandement en améliorer l'apparence. En tout cas, le monde semble bien plus acceuillant lorsque vous avez quelques centimètres de blindage d'Abrams autour de vous. Un grand merci à tous ceux qui ont répondu à notre appel - vous avez dépassé toutes nos attentes! Offworld out."
  3. Just a quick translation for our french players. I was stuck on the train this evening, and had nothing better to do. Enjoy! Edit: I can't figure out how to display the pictures/videos.

  4. The Wrench -- March 2018

    Hi Squaddies, March is behind us and with it another exciting month of Modding! We were thinking long and hard about a joke involving the Ides of March but since nothing made the cut, just take the hard facts: we received a lot of awesome updates from our community which we are more than happy to present to you. Join us on the Community Modding Discord where you can join discussions and meet the modding community. It's a great place to share your ideas and passions with like-minded people that will happily help you create something awesome. Al Basrah Storm + Night Variation by Stadl0r We love modders who take the approach of making existing things more interesting. Stadl0r did this very well in his project to make some environment variations for Al Basrah by making a nice dusty storm variation. It's very well done and looks pretty much spot on. Sightlines are reduced and engagement ranges drop down by quite a bit. He also made a beautiful night variation with some new light objects which is worth having a look at. (Take a friend. It's dangerous to go alone.) Firepower: WW2 Combined Arms Total Conversion World War 2 is up and coming and we love to see Modders tackling this conflict. This submission came out of the dark: a World War 2 total conversion mod focusing on combined arms in the Pacific theatre. They are currently very early in development but we can already see some very nice things in this update and hope we'll see more in the future! Finkarus by LoRDHitMan Finkarus was first released on the Steam Workshop in March and has seen some great updates since them. Dedicated Wrenchers can still remember the first time we saw this map and it is great to see it released. It's a 5x5km map with different time of day versions, pitting the Russian Ground Forces against the US Army. Be sure to check out LoRDHitMan's hard work on the Steam Workshop here. Sands of Yanya by bestpony Well-known modder bestpony is back with another map, and this time we're headed to a coastal region. A beach littered with Czech hedgehogs, crumbled bunkers that still make for an ample defense position, and thick forests make for a hard-fought battlefield which we cannot wait to set our virtual feet on it. Foreign Legion Mod by Squad Mod France A very welcome and well known regular on the Wrench, the French Foreign Legion Mod brings us some very nice updates again this month with their new model of an AMX 10 RC and a nice work in progress on their HK417 for the more infantry focused fans! As always you can check out their updates on their website. Dzhungli by dsiOne Set in a heavy early morning fog this map puts the very mobile Militia Forces in a battle against heavily mechanized Russian Ground Forces that are defending an old Soviet compound. Dominated by a thick and unpassable Siberian forest which is only broken up by a raging river and some steep cliffs, forces will have to fight to control the crossing points to make sure they can move on vehicles. Operation Silver by EliteLurker Released a while back, Operation Silver has been one of the early favourites of the Modding Community. EliteLurker hasn't stopped to rest though, steadily improving his map by including a soon to be released night version. Operation Silver also featured in the LevelGaming 40v40 competitive league tournament. Included in the Steam Workshop download is a small bonus fun map named RoadRage, made for excessive vehicle mayhem, check it out on the Steam Workshop! That's it for this month people, we hope you enjoyed reading through this as much as we enjoyed collecting and providing it for you. As always, if you want to see your work in here one day, just submit it to us! We're looking forward to seeing your hard work. Squad Modding Hub Management Team Out.
  5. The Wrench February

    Hi Squaddies, The snow is melting (in the Northern Hemisphere, at least. We make no guarantees for the cold-hearted either.) and the sun is coming out to shine onto our screens while we're trying to work on mods. Even throughout these difficult circumstances, the community is working had to bring their ideas and visions to the game and we're happy to show you what has happened in the month of February! So let's close those curtains and get this Wrench started, we have quite a lot of things to show you. Join us on the Community Modding Discord where you can join discussions and meet the modding community. It's a great place to share your ideas and passions with like-minded people that will happily help you create something awesome. Official Squad Modding Hub Server Often requested and, thankfully, now we were able to finally do it. We have an official Modding Hub Server that is running your modded content 24/7! It shall forever be known as the "Squad Modding Hub Official" and you can directly connect here: steam://connect/play.squadmodding.com:27165, or use the IP address: play.squadmodding.com:27165 (The 27165 is technically the port number, but you get the idea.) Do you have any suggestions regarding what to run on it? Hit us up at the Modding Hub: we're there to listen to you! And while we're talking about our server, what are you doing on Saturdays? We have a nice, weekly event for every mod lover and mod lover in the making: our Squad Modding Roundup! This is where you can play some curated mods in an event with other squaddies. Keep an eye out for the announcements and get all the files at www.squadmodding.com. Finnish Defence Forces Update by FDFMod The team behind the Finnish Defence Forces is hard at work to bring this faction to Squad. Weapons are already starting to find their way into the engine and they're currently building some maps. Shown here is a 2x2km map based on a real-life location, it's called Rautjärvi. They are also working on custom buildings and foliage to populate the maps with appropriate content. Mennä! Helicopter Mod v6 Update by Heedicalking/MF Cool One community favourite just received a nice update: the helicopter mod just introduced the Russian Ka-52 "Alligator". Being equipped with a semi-rigid 30mm cannon, two side-mounted rocket pods, 14 ATGMs and a FLIR thermal camera it surely brings a lot to the battlefield. To counter this the M163 Vulcan anti-air platform was also added in this update! Karkand City by FAR-STAN A lot of people in the gaming community have fond memories of "Strike at Karkand," a map that was originally featured in Battlefield 2 and made its way into later iterations of the Battlefield series as well. FAR-STAN has set out to do a faithful recreation of this map and it's going quite well. In the future, he plans to continue working on the map and creating some custom assets to really bring back the city of Karkand to SQUAD -- sure to be a superior city combat experience. Foreign Legion Mod by Squad Mod France Still hard at work, we get another update from the Foreign Legion Mod. This time we can see some progress on their map from community member Legion, and some screens of the Renault GBC 180 which will be their second logistics truck and can carry more supplies than the TRM 2000, but comes at a higher ticket cost. As always you can also check out their website for their full progress reports. Battle of Skorpo - Uskedalen Expansion by Zeno The Battle of Skorpo has undergone a lot of changes during its time in development and is now being updated with an entirely new gameplay area based on the real-life location of Uskedalen. The mainland section of the level will feature tranquil villages, windy mountains, lush valleys and raging rivers. New layers available are AAS and AAS Infantry. Together with the updated Invasion layer and soon to come: Search & Destroy game mode, there will be endless ways to play this map! Sarau Desert by Noxxid3 Already introduced in last month's edition of The Wrench, Noxxid3 didn't stop working on his map inspired by Kashan Desert from Project Reality. A road network was defined and the landscape was decorated with some vegetation. You can follow the development of the map in the forum thread, development is moving quite quickly! Special Forces by r0tzbua While still working on putting the last few changes on the snow white (without a single dwarf) winter factions, r0tzbua was inspired by OWI's own ChanceBrahh to do an AN/PEQ-15 attachment for the M4 rifle. After that was done (even though it's just a cosmetic thing and doesn't work yet) the idea came up to work on a SOPMOD kit for the rifle. When the NT4 suppressor and the Spectre scope was on it didn't seem very far-fetched to play around with night vision. That's where we're at right now, complete with the awesome suppressed M4 sounds by TheSCRUB. SQUAD MOD Combat Evolved by The SMCE Team This fine team consisting of like-minded people from the Modding Community have set themselves quite the formidable goal of creating a total conversion of Squad in the Halo universe. While we would all love to blow through hordes of enemies as the Master Chief, we can all agree that it wouldn't be quite a balanced multiplayer experience. The SMCE team thinks the same and were mostly inspired by the elite Marine ODST gameplay of Halo 3: ODST. We are really looking forward to what they come up with! 1P63 - Russian Optic by Assi Some new optics for the poor optic-deprived Russian faction are in the works, and Assi started right up with the 1p63 for the AK-74M. Originally starting as a practice model he decided to implement it into Squad to check out how the weapon and attachment system works. You can check out the submission in the workshop already over here. Game Modes by Virus.exe Quite known in the Modding community for his excellent work on game modes and more, Virus.exe is at it again with a new release: a Territorial Domination mode which places objectives all over the map and lets the team fight over territories (as the name might imply). Depending on the number of held territories (each 5% of map control gains 1 ticket per minute) a team gains tickets and whichever team outpaces the other by 200 tickets first wins the match. The mod comes packed with a proof of concept INS vs. MIL layer on Al-Basrah which is loaded with highly mobile technicals and only little-armoured vehicles, check it out on the Steam Workshop! Additional thanks here to Sacretis for the Territory Domination icon. The Destruction game mode which we talked about last month has received some updates throughout February. Areas with active objectives are now shown on the map and the construction of deployables in a 10m radius around them. The Gorodok layer received some balance changes and the Chora layer has been updated for Squad v10. If you haven't already played it, get it from the Steam Workshop, it's a lot of fun! Some thanks and credits go out to Rincewind for helping with a map painting system for objective areas, and Assi for the new weapon cache models. Forest Map Concept by Marv Quite a name in the community, Marv is known for working on multiple visually stunning maps. He also released Agrabah, which is on the Steam Workshop already. This new map takes us from the desert and directly into a dark and eerie European forest which makes us afraid of monsters jumping out behind every tree. Looking forward to it! That's all for this month people! We hope you enjoyed what we are cooking in the community and you have as much fun as we do. If you didn't quite make it into this month's deadline, fear not! We're taking submissions for the next month already, just use this Wrench submission form. Squad Modding Hub Management Team Out.
  6. February Recap

    February 2018 Hey Squaddies, Just because February is the shortest month of the year doesn't mean we haven't been as productive as usual! Most of the team is still deep in the heart of winter, so let's see what they've been doing to keep themselves warm. (Hint: It involves some new weapons, maps, and other upgrades!) Like the previous recap, we've selected work that's nearing completion, but not quite ready yet -- work in progress. Don't worry, though, you'll have your hot little hands on it in the near future. Art and Environment Squad's artists are always hard at work, whether it be on the latest weapon models coming to the game, or working hard to make the maps and their environs look beautiful, play well, and accurately represent the world we all want to play in. As diverse as their interests, each artist brings their love of their subject to the table. New Weapon: AT-4 Entering into service in the late 1980s, the AT-4 is a single-shot anti-tank weapon that gives infantry a chance to level the playing (and/or battle) field with impressive firepower. (Big-bada-boom.) Primarily intended for taking out armored vehicles and fortifications, it should be a welcome asset to squaddies taking on the anti-armor role. Careful, though -- tickle the wrong armor and you will need to move ASAP. New Weapon: L129 A1 The British are coming! And you'll just have to forgive that reference. Fortunately for us, they are coming fully armed and ready for action, as evidenced by the fine work on this L129 A1. The rifle, designed for the harsh environments of Afghanistan, should find itself right at home on the upcoming Kamdesh Highlands map. Don't forget the microfiber cloth for that ACOG -- there's nothing worse than sun glare through a smudge. HESCO Structure Upgrade While starting the work on Fallujah, we knew it will be our best-looking map to date. Still, we didn't want to leave the rest of the game untouched. We've started a side project called Make Squad Great Again! (Not that it ever wasn't. ;)) The goal is to give our existing assets and maps a fresh look -- we're talking about a complete rework, not just a simple texture tweak. To give you an idea how serious, we proudly present everybody's favorite home away from home, the HESCO: A special shoutout to OWI's own Tristan "Ghaz" Mills for kicking ALL of the ass on these. Can't wait to see them in the field. New Building Model Not content just to spruce up the old buildings, the team is hard at work creating more assets to bring Squad to life. Featured here is a multi-level building for the upcoming Fallujah map. With the recent addition of climbing and vaulting, this structure should prove an interesting challenge to clear and secure. It's bound to work its way into some other maps, so be sure to watch for it coming to the SDK too. Mapping Speaking of maps, there's more than just Fallujah in the works. Those lucky enough to catch Axton or ChanceBrahh streaming their workflow know that not only is Kamdesh Highlands evolving, but some of the previously released maps are getting some TLC. The mapping team is hard at work making sure Squad's environments come to life in a realistic -- and fun -- way. Update: Kamdesh Highlands The Kamdesh Highlands of Afghanistan have been host to some of the most intense fighting in recent years and bringing them to life accurately is a challenge the mapping team has a handle on, without a doubt. Previously featured in recaps, Kamdesh is shaping up to be a fierce battleground using the team's latest tricks and techniques. It continues to shape up to be one of the most beautiful environments to join the map list. The high peaks, dangerous slopes, and sharp falls into valleys should prove just as potent of an enemy as the OPFOR. We're honestly relieved nobody has to visit during monsoon season. Gorodok Update Pass Though Gorodok is still an old favorite, it could use a little Spring cleaning. Enter Axton. Under his expert eye, Gorodok is looking to receive some optimization that includes foliage draws, experimenting with distance fields, casting more impressive shadows, and even addressing some of the map's giant rock demons threatening the borders. Ahem. Since it's experimental, we'll have to wait for all the splines to reticulate before checking out the optimizations. Be sure to check out some of Axton's previous streams to get a better feel for what's happening to Gorodok, as it happened. Ain't technology amazing? Community SquadCast by TacticalGamer Tired of having to use your eyes all the time? We got your back and your ears. The folks at TacticalGamer recently had a chance to sit down with Drav and Merlin, some of the amazing minds (and talent) driving the development of Squad. Settle in for about an hour of SquadCast and, when you're done, let us know what you think in the forums. Listen Now! Reddit AMA With the help of the r/JoinSquad moderators, carefully monitored doses of caffeine, and your questions, we took to Reddit with an AMA! A huge thank you to everyone who participated. If your question wasn't answered this time, don't worry: we're already planning for the next AMA. Keep your eyes peeled for a blog-ready version of the text soon. In the meantime: Read the AMA on Reddit! And so we find ourselves at the end of another Recap! A big thank you to the artists (code or otherwise!) that made this recap happen. Did you see something you want to talk about? Something you want to see next month? Sound off to your next favorite squad leader in the Squad Community Discord. Until next time, squaddies.
