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'm not sure if the Flag capping mechanics stopped working or does it work differently than in other maps/version/gamemode? (This was AAS v1). Before this pic the enemy only had Ammo Hill, but was still able to cap Fortress and after that we also lost Hilltop.
Hi, I'm a returning player and I havent played the game for half a year. I've seen some major updates and changes but I didnt read the patchnotes. So a while ago I was playing on Fool's road v1, and the map seems darker like it was dusk. Is there any dusk or dawn version of Fool's road map? Im kinda worried if that's my game setting because I edited the systemsettings.ini of the game for it to run smoother. Thanks for the answer.
BrossParavoss posted a topic in Feedback & SuggestionsHello, fellas. As you know new US soldiers will be very authentic and pretty nice. Also I like these rolled sleeves and open faces. I'm from Russia, but I don't like play vs RAF in SQUAD )))). If we are talking about desert maps, this uniform is fine — not very hiding, but not very bright. Guys, I guess RAF not authentic even in uniform. I suggest to change RAF soldiers: 1) Clear face without any mask. 2) Rolled sleeves to some kits (maybe random). 3) Uniform are aging, but digi-flora is equal from soldier to soldier in SQUAD. It needs to be changed. This text was written after Fool's Road and Gorodok.
I've noticed in videos and on the forums that there seems to be a little problem with the russian and the militia faction looking very much alike. Of course, one should allways try to check his map before shooting someone, but in close quarters engagements that is not going to happen. I have noticed that in the Ukrainian conflict, because of the camo problem, different factions add brightly coloured details to their gear (sometimes even with duct tape). Maybu putting something like this on the militia models could fix the problem. For long range, you wouldn't be able to see it, and people would have to check their maps. In close quarters, it might help. What do you think?
First of all, congratulations on hitting the first stretch goal, and congratulations to the community for not picking a garbage map. We can all sleep easy knowing that neither Muttrah or Kashan will be remade. So, we know that we will be getting Fool's Road, but what happens if we are not to make it to the Russian Forces stretch goal? Will Fool's Road be a US vs. Taliban map? Also, if Russians are implemented into Fool's Road, will we see the return of the Chechen forces? The only thing that really needs to be done for them is character models, as they can otherwise use the same equipment and assets as the Taliban
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):
Instead of maps being developed as isolated battles why not develop them in campaign sets with each map in a set featuring a different kind of combat (Urban, forest, armour). these maps develop off of each other logically in the frame of an overall campaign. I'm not suggesting a storyline linking these campaign sets, there doesn't need to be and multiple faction combinations should fight in the same campaign set so there's more variety in the game. For example, currently we have Fool's Road, but what if it was the middle section of the Fool's Campaign. The theme of this campaign would be the progression of the Militia faction versus whatever conventional faction(s) they're fighting. The first map in this set would be Fool's Hope. This map is set in an Eastern European city which is the Militia's home ground. Neither faction has heavy armour so instead it is all about dense urban fighting and only light vehicle support. Narratively this is the starting point with the conventional force attacking the relatively weak Militia in their own home. The second map is Fool's Road, which we've got so we know what it's like. In the campaign's narrative however this map would be the Militia branching out and fighting the conventional force outside of their city so they're no longer being purely defensive. The third map in this theoretical campaign is Fool's Gambit. This one is set around a large airfield in Eastern Europe that is occupied by the conventional force that the Militia is attacking. Both forces are employing heavy vehicles with the Militia having the advantage in vehicle quantity but the conventional force having quality. Thinking about maps in this way would be beneficial for development for multiple reasons: A ) Maps in a campaign set use the same assets as each other, so there's more bang for OWI's buck. B ) Campaigns suggest a progression that map designers can follow making it easier to create interesting maps using the same assets. C ) It helps player understand factions by putting them in very different contexts, allowing players to learn and master the different aspects that make factions effective. D ) It lays the groundwork for a campaign mode, if that ever comes around. Thanks for reading, this was a thought I had on a walk and it was burning away in my skull for a few days so I thought I better write it up.
I haven't seen this mentioned on the forums yet (or maybe I'm not looking hard enough), but I'v always wanted to see more than one nation playable on each opposing side whilst playing PR. Here is an example of what I mean. Lets say on the Squad remake of Fools Road, that instead of only featuring the US or UK as a playable faction on the BluFor team, you can choose to be either-or, or maybe even another NATO member state. Say, squads Alpha and Bravo have chosen to play as the US Army, while Charlie squad has chosen to be the British Army. And because Russia doesn't really have any allies, the OpFor team for this scenario are limited to only the Russian military. All of this is can vary depending on which factions the map creator has chosen to fit the scenario that he/she has envisioned. I believe that adding in such an option would play an interesting role on a maps replay value and even in the believably of a conflict, as NATO forces often fight/train side by side. Of course the conversation of balance and fairness can be discussed, although in my mind, war is never a fair fight.
