      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.

  1. Hi, there are 2 underbarrel granade launchers presented in game - US M203 and Russian GP-203 "Campfire", both use 40mm granades with 7meters effective casualty radius. Iv tested both ingame and on jensens range. M203 easily destroy all russian vehicles or atleast destroy turrets and engines with fragiles with few shots, excl. T-72. But GP-203 cannot do anything with same 40mm grenade to any US armoured vehicle, even destroy mg turret. Additionally iv learned about armour of BTR-82A - its up to 10mm, and Stryker M1126 has up to 12mm armour (without heavy ceramics - its not presented in game). So fragile damage to these APCs cant be drammaticaly different, but it is now. And if RPG fragile cant do sth to front armour of BTR, why M203 can do? I think its mistake and damage of m203 has to be strongly reduced to armour targets.
  2. m203 sights are completely useless

    The sights on the m203 are completely unusable. The scope is in the way so you can't see anything and even if you could you can't tilt the gun so whats the point. Can we get rid of the scope on the rifle with the m203 or something? I wish there could be a better way to actually use the sights but I don't really have any good suggestion to something quick and easy.
  3. m203 Parachute flare

    I have been playing this game for a while but i am new to the forum. I would like to toss the idea of a parachute flare for use on the night map. I am not sure if it's even possible or how to do it but i just think it would be a nice idea for ambushes if for 15 sec you can light up a valley.
  4. Unlike it's counterpart in Squad the GP-25 players are able to aim the grenade launcher using a leaf sight, located behind the ACOG of the weapon. Although no range indicators can be found on the leaf sight it is significantly easier to operate. That was taken from Squad wiki, the M203's sight is the hardest to use not the easiest out of the two weapons. The side mounted sight adds the advantage of being able to see where you're going to fire and after you fire, where you're round lands. The M203's sight shows you a big gun on the screen and thats about it.
  5. First off, I know this idea has been floated before, but the last posting about it was several months back, and I thought I'd bring the idea up again. Most people can agree that the night maps are a bit difficult to see in, and some even resort to upping the gamma for greater visibility. Being a (somewhat) realism purist, i don't like doing such things, but that does give us a serious disadvantage to those that do decide to exploit the gamma. This is why i feel grenade-launched flares may be the best option; 1- This utilizes the already-in-place potential for grenadiers to mark areas of enemy targets, and makes them more valuable to the team. 2- Anyone that is utilizing the upped gamma will find it impossible to see during the flare due to over-exposed visuals, which makes this exploit less useable if one has to go into the menu and turn down the settings just in order to see. 3- The unreal engine 4 is one of the best engines currently capable of dynamic, volumetric lights, and should experience minimal frame drop even on the highest of settings. Please rate the poll if you have a moment, or if you have any imput or better ideas, please comment in the section below.
  6. Hi all! I think GL requires more reload speed. It's very slowly now. There are some games, where the sake "reality conditions" made slow weapon reload or slow player movement. Maybe it wil be more comfortable for all of us?
  7. The 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.
  8. In game use are currently using the M203's as grenade launchers for the US army side. But currently the 203 is be phased out of the US army and is being replaced by the M320. All infantry OSUT privates are being trained on the M320. The M320 is a handheld or rail attached grenade launcher with the same characteristics of the M203 on the moved the side to a side mounted side in stead of attaching it to the top rail system. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M320_Grenade_Launcher_Module This is just an idea to keep game play weapons up to date.
  9. What do you guys think of providing Squad leaders with a very limited number of HE (~2) and a few smokes or flares for the UGL. I think this would add a lot of utility to the class and make squads more versatile. I don't want to see an increase in grenade spam so thrown grenades should be reduced for the SL accordingly. Fewer thrown smokes and no hand grenade. Thoughts?
