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.

Sorry if this comes across as nit-picky or nerd-levels of attention to detail. Its actually painfully obvious stuff for us, much like US equipment is for the yanks among us. It is standard British Army doctrine to have optics on all service rifles. It's not just a "preference" thing, or based on availability, or "role", but rather a core philosophy of the service. It was one of the primary design principles around the L85 (and even before that, though optics technology was still maturing). All rifles have an optic. Will we see this in squad? Obviously there are a plethora of valid points to make in terms of balance and so on, I understand this. Problem is, an SA80 without optics is correlated very heavily with "cadets" etc in the army. Even then most of them have access to the older SUSATs. It may be rather immersion breaking to use the weapon system and iron sights (for at least those of us who know). Furthermore, we all get issued a sidearm on deployment. Same thing there. They have talked about the L129A1 DMR, so the era we are looking at here really falls onto the Elcan Specter scope, or even the placeholder Acogs, not the SUSAT. Yet the SUSAT has been mentioned in the dev logs along with usage of the L85 with iron sights. Its all a bit higgledy piggledy you see.
Not really a fan of the new feature that got rid of the full auto switch on the ACOG M4. We have semi-auto for a reason, and the M4 in the real world only comes in semi or full. If it were the M16 I'd understand, but aren't we trying to prioritize realism here? Any opinions on this? Besides that issue, I love everything about the new v10 update.
Marksmens fire off to the left or right of the crosshair, the Crow fires off sight (I think lower than the sight) and apparently de-renders foliage and objects on many maps. The foliage de-rendering isn't an issue for me, I play on low settings and foliage just turns into big ol' green bricks/flakes that I can't see through worth a damn but many people have reported this while I was playing.
(I dont know that someone opened this topic before if this topic already exists sorry about that and for my English.) As the title said realistic scopes could be amazing. Look at Insurgency or RO those games have awesome scopes very realistic and very f*cking cool. I want to see those scopes in SQUAD. Love you guys all keep it coming ) <3
May already be a topic, feel free to move! I feel the scoped/acog M4 is really inaccurate at range? Does anyone else feel this way or is it just me. Sometimes I can drop people one shot in the head, a majority of the time I fire half a clip and can barely hit them at the same distance and same situation. The scope for the AK's i do feel is more accurate, I get less trade kills and a much better ranged shot!
Found an FOV issue with the new scope FX, related to your FOV setting. The new Dark overlay they added doesn't align properly to the scope on anything other than a 90 degree FOV setting. FOV values VS effect in links 90 FOV 100 FOV 110 FOV
American Acog optics, they shake for some reason, and the bullet falls off to the right at long distances. Not sure if that's intended or a bug. Makes it very difficult to hit targets very far away. Comparitively the Russian Optics do not shake, and their shots are in line with the reticles. Ex, I can easily hit the 1000m target on Jensens with AK-74 / RPK optics, but don't have a chance hitting it with Acog. I'm sure the magnifications are not going to stay the way they are, but it seems the acog was nerfed to a point where it's easier to hit long range targets with the red dot.
Hello guys! (Re)beginning in video creation i'd like you to leave a comment or a like on the video on or the post here, you're opinion is important to me. Thank you (to be checked in 1080p ;)) 1st vid, Kill Collection Only: (NEW) 2nd vid, Sniper Teamplay best moves (shorter, more dynamic footage):
Something didnt work properly with the pictures so Im just going to gave you this links instead of them. Something what annoys me and probbably a lot of other players in the Squad and other fps games is zooming the scope .When you use scope which can maginfy, it zoomes in the whole picture instead of only scope. The problem with this is rendering. If you had normal aiming in the games your screen picture would look like 1x outside and lets say 4x inside of the scope, but then your pc would need to render the map twice what dramatically lowers frames per second. Develpers currently have few solutions for this: 1) Is to maginify the hole screen lets say 4x like acog, what Squad and Battlefield currently use. https://www.google.hr/search?espv=2&biw=1680&bih=925&tbm=isch&sa=1&btnG=Tra%C5%BEi&q=Squad+gameplay+acog#btnG=Tra%C5%BEi&imgrc=oyIIYPwPMjpkdM%3A https://www.google.hr/search?q=battlefield+gameplay+acog&espv=2&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwie8_-ujpvKAhXCgQ8KHS7VAsEQ_AUIBygB&biw=1680&bih=881#imgrc=mSwLu_GEzJmuiM%3A 2) Which is actually pretty retarded, Battlefeild uses it for snipers, is to magnify the scope and make all around it black. https://www.google.hr/search?q=battlefield+snipers+scope&espv=2&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjfxpS5kJvKAhVFiQ8KHev0DWwQ_AUIBygB&biw=1680&bih=881#imgrc=hRHpkX2iJng2WM%3A 3) Which I think is the best,and which one many of us would like to be in the Squad, and this one really should be implemented in the game. Magnify the whole picture and blure everything outside the scope like you, developers, did in the project reallity. It looks good with the acog and you could probably implemet that for sniper scopes too. And it could be improved by making picure outside little less blurry and maybe to set metal part aroud the magnification glass non blured. Here is how it looked like in the project reality: https://www.google.hr/search?espv=2&biw=1680&bih=881&tbm=isch&sa=1&q=project+reality+gameplay+acog&oq=project+reality+gameplay+acog&gs_l=img.3...94306.101322.0.1015188.8.131.52.0.0.0.331.2124.0j4j4j2.10.0....0...1c.1.64.img..19.0.0.RD8JD5teXJE#imgrc=LqD6UzEn3qQ6cM%3A I know that developers currently have a lot of job fixing bugs and fps dropps but they should really consider this little problem because it acctually improves gameplay for people who care for realistic details, and yeah, just press like button if you approve this oppinion. Sorry for bad English.
I have to ask, why the lack of ACOGs? Why so many M4A1s using an Aimpoint optic or no optic at all? Squad seems to treat ACOGs as though they're a limited issue piece of equipment. Why don't all classes have access to them? Is this for gameplay reasons (and if so, why, because most classes in PR have ACOGs as per real life, and there aren't any consequent gameplay issues), or is this an authenticity failure?
Hi ! The PSO-1 graduations are too grey and almost invisible. They're thin and its much appreciated but they're barely visible. I've already hold an SVD with a PSO and the graduations are much more clear on a real one. Could you make them darker ? At least the PSO-1. The ACOG too could be little darker but not as much as the russian. Maybe the FOV settings change the way they look but doenst change my mind, I shouldnt have to change my FOV to clearly see in my scope ;) (I play @ FOV 100) Last thing I'd add is if graduations look so bright maybe its because there is no "glass" effect on the scope ; I mean when scoping, the screen view just enlarges within the scope, but you dont feel like looking in a rifle scope (I'm I clear enough ?) If you change this and add lil glass reflection on the scope, maybe graduations would become more visible ? (I'm not a game coder so I dunno if what I'm just saying is right-minded...) Other way to say that : the graduations looks like being "painted" on the screen, and not being part of a scope you're looking in (not exactly what I feel but maybe you'll unerstand me this way ^^) TY !
Scope 'Markings' Serving Their Purpose Many optical sights include markings used for Range Finding for the sake of accuracy. It would be a good feature for a game which heavily leans towards military realism & interesting gameplay (essentially meaning you aim accounting for bullet drop or running/leading the target). Scopes with calibrated range finders include: ACOG - Commonly seen on American Weapons. Range is found by the width of the targetPSO-1 - Used on SVD sniper/marksman rifle. Has a range finder based on height of the targetPGO-7 - For RPG-7. Used to be rarely seen in combat, but these days due to the ammount of conflict it isn't so rare anymore Range finder is based on height of target. Not many people know it but the PGO-7 can also work well on an AK47B10/Recoiless Rifles/SPG 9 have optics with range finders Previous Game Examples (The Good & The Bad) Good, Operation Flash Point: Cold War Crisis. In the instruction manual it is noted that the SVD and American scope have a system for range finding. To Synch realism with militaristic gameplay they adjusted bulletdrop to be unrealistic so that the scope could be used for range finding with their own range system.Bad, PR: PSO scope markings mean nothingGood, PR: Recoiless Rifle/B10/SPG 9 markings work well.Bad, ArmA: Technical Recoiless Rifle/B10/SPG 9 is the most 'vanilla' sight you would ever come accross in a game. It is not useful for accurate ranged fire. I'm unaware of the game design mechanics regarding this except that units should fit based on their unit within markings at a distance (obvious).
