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 dislike so much the "forced zoom" that was introduced in v10, please allow us to not be forced to zoom in when all I want is simply ADS no need for the zoom, it's annoying, make it like PR please then again, when I want is to "focus" for a clear shot, I have even more zoom, please, all I want is to be steady, not to zoom in 1x in the target there is no scope in the gun, then I dont want the zoom my suggestion, is to unbind the "forced zoom" from the "focus" (gun steadiness), maybe in the menu we can choose, so we can disable it then, when disable, it would be like this: Right click: ads (no zoom) Shift: steady (no zoom) please, you fixed the nametags, maybe you can do this too? give the hardcore players this... thx edit: also, having the screen moving forwards and backwards everytime is horrible for CQB
Sometimes when you aim down sights, over a wall, or on the top of a mountain or small bump, you might see that your sights are clear of your cover and your barrel should be just over it also, but when you shoot, you bullet hits the dirt in front of you, wasting your nice lined up shooting and giving your position away. What im suggesting is some small indicator, maybe your gun dismounting from your shoulder, or pointing up over the terrain, so that players know when they can, and cannot shoot to where their sights are pointing. Other games sometimes have a lean function, where if you're close enough to the edge of the wall and ADS, your character will lean around the corner or stand up a little so that you can shoot freely, when you stop aiming, you return to your normal position. Maybe this would be a nice idea also?
Hey all, searched for this, but didn't find a post. I was wondering if anyone has experienced a bug with aiming down sights (ADS) that seems to have started since alpha 5. For me every so often when I try to ADS on a target it starts to aim and then comes right out as if you let go of RMB. At first I thought it was me somehow letting off the RMB, but there have been times when I have definitely clicked and held and it still happened. Once or twice it might be me, but it has happened to me multiple times. It has happened with different mice, and with different factions/guns. A few other players seem to have experienced this as well. However, I can't seem to recreate it on demand, at least not in firing range. I believe it tends to happen when I ADS and go to fire. I feel it happens more often after getting off the first shot? But, again I cannot reproduce it when I want to. Anyone else have similar experiences? Here are 2 short clips I happen to capture to show what I mean. I believe it is a bug, but it happens so sporadically and I'm not entirely sure if others have the same experience.
Jimieus posted a topic in General DiscussionMe, personally, I am not a fan. I understand and appreciate the concept behind it, but from my experience as a user I find it a bit jarring and irritating. To clarify here, it isn't so much the holding shift to zoom part - I can deal with that (just wish I could rebind it to hold RMB) - it's the part where it unzooms, seemingly determined by a stamina bar I can't see. This often leads to a whole lot of camera movement as I wrangle the zoom, in some cases getting to a point where I can get a little motion sick(?). Call me finicky, but it's something that has been present since forever and I just had to see what other peoples' thoughts were on this. Anyone else kinda bothered by it?
Hello and good evening, (NOTE: Searching the web forum here with keywords like "GRENADIER", "GRENADIER ADS", "ADS" and so on didn't result fruitful.) I'ts been roughly 1-2 weeks playing SQUAD now. I learned a lot and still have to learn and adapt, but one of the few mysteries in weaponry and ADS is the grenadier (when firing a grenade). I don't quite understand, which "distance mark" (I call them like that, I don't know the exact proper English word for it) stands for which distance. I tested it on the firing range...to my confusion with no constant results. Would somebody be so kind and explain this problem to me? This problem also faced me when playing INSURGENCY and several other "real combat"-simulation games. I also tried to find an explanation on YouTube, but it seems, I only find the actual work routine of a grenadier.....but not on how to understand the weapon when ADS (firing a grenade). Cheers, Thund3rb1rd P.S.: Sorry for my bad english. It's not my mother tongue.
BrightRaven210 posted a topic in QuestionsSo, every time I start a game or round, as well as after respawning, the first time I walk, ADS, shoot, or change my weapon kit at a supply crate, my FPS will drop a few frames before freezing at a single frame and then flashes black for two to five seconds before going back to normal. After that I can repeat the action I was initially attempting to do without a problem; however, changing kits will still cause the problem even if I am changing for an Nth number of time in the same life. Does anyone know why this happens and how it is that I can fix this? My setup uses the i5-4430 and the PNY GTX 950.
So I went forum hunting for "iron sights", "backup sights" and "backup iron sights" but I didn't get what I was looking for. I did go through the 4 pages so I am bound to have missed something. Will we have backup iron sights for scoped classes? I'm not talking about those rail-mounted sights that you use after removing your scope, or aiming above the RCO, but the iron sights you see on scopes and RU weapons, since they have sidemounted scopes. So for instance, will we get to use the sights on the SVD when things get messy? I suppose it could give a bit of defence, and the 10-round magazine would stop people from using it like a close quarter battle rifle. And when the British make their entrance, would we get the choice to use the sights atop the SUSAT or the RMR atop the ACOG? I've seen them in PR (I don't play it, I can't find a server with ping less than 400) so if they could implement it no issue, I suppose the same for SQUAD? Or is it planned and I am just beating a dead horse? ._.
Just curious. Searched but didn't see a related post or maybe my keywords suck. Case: Running then turning to ADS -- I think people are able to do this too easily and I'm curious how difficult a fix would be -- maybe it's already in place and can be tweaked or I haven't noticed it. Could you guys (feasibly) do dynamic arm animations? Kind of like a cloth or rag-doll type of effect using speed + vector + gun weight to change how quickly I would be able swing my gun around and ADS at the desired target. I probably just suggested the hardest, or least feasible way to solve it :) but if it's possible I think something like that could be useful in teaching people to be a little more patient while not relying as much on a stamina/sway.
So , my question is simply cus i havent played squad yet. Is the aim down sight on toggle or hold to aim? reason for my question is since iv played PR and it forces you to have the toggle aim down sight wich is the worst. I know it gives a klunky mil sim feeling to the game like pr and arma , but pls for the love of god and allah make it optional cus i only find it annoying. just make a keybinding for toggle on / off. / love ButterflyCar.
Vinny1001 posted a topic in Feedback & SuggestionsSearched "sensitivity" and nothing came up about this. So some games have a sensitivity option for regular hip fire, as well as aiming down sight, and even scoped sensitivity. I understand it's pre-alpha, but I was wondering will that be implemented in? I tried snooping through the config files but didn't find anything that useful. I would like to have the same sensitivity all around, or at least have the option for it, as others may like a lower sensitivity aiming down site. But I think this should be able to be customized for the player because some people like it one way, some like it another. Or, is there a multiplier used for the main sensitivity that multiples it into the scoped sensitivity? Because if that's there, allow us to change the multiplier if we don't want any change in sensitivity between ADS, and hip fire, or if you want .5 of your main sensitivity, so it'd half it when you ADS, and so on. So main question, will this be implemented eventually? Oh, this is mainly a suggestion to add into the game, but also a question because it's alpha and it may already be planned. Thanks!
Im really fond of slow paced tactical shooters, and I must say that to me people run way too easily in Squad right now. I think at least ADS movements speed could get tweaked to give a better game experience. So I simply propose to slow backward and strafe speed (still when ADS) significantly down, like matching 25% of the forward speed (when ADS too). It simply needs to give the impression the dude is really focused on his target and just cant look where he's going on the sides and backward, so he'll run slower to avoid getting his feet stuck in something and stumble, or simply take a tree in the face. PS : I would also slow down backward speed (when not aiming), but not as much as 25%, so maybe matching 50% of the forward speed (still when not aiming) ?
