      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 everyone! Now that the V11 SDK is out and hopefully you're all happily working on your new (or old) stuff it's time to let the community see it again! Submit your content over here: https://goo.gl/forms/0O1ry6yqwCLygmp72 Deadline is the 13th of June!
  2. Modding Update 2.0, #1

    Hey Squaddies! It's time for a quick Modding 2.0 development update! Progress has been going well since the initial modding release, so we figured it was time to show off some of what's coming up next. First off, the Modding SDK UI has been completely redone (by an actual designer this time!). With their help and a fresh copy of the PSD of the new SDK UI, we went straight into implementing the update. It turned out like this! As you can tell, the tabs on the left the UI for the Modding SDK have all been moved to one window. No more multiple tabs on the top bar! Every action you need for modding is now in one convenient window. Sharing Mods We've scratched the old Steam Uploader and wrote a whole new one from scratch. (This one gives more errors than "Something went wrong."). We've also removed the need to have to pick an "Output Directory" when you are cooking your mod. By default, the system will now pick a valid path for you! We've also removed the need to have to click both the "Package" and "Upload" button. If you just click upload now it will perform the "Package" too. The "Package" button now is exclusively for people who don't want to upload their mod to the Steam Workshop. Editing Mods You are now able to edit your mod's information through the UI after creation. No more having to go through your modinfo info file and change all of the information and hoping you don't break anything! This new UI is probably 90% done. All the work that is left to do is small but important: fixing button sizes, handling really long strings, handling edge cases, etc. This should definitely come out with Modding 2.0, or maybe even earlier! Modding SDK Internals SMI Files Modinfo.smi files have been destroyed and replaced with your .mi files. No need to worry though, as soon as you load your mod in the Modding 2.0 SDK, your mod's SMI file will be upgraded to the new format. The main reason for switching file formats is Modding 2.0 doesn't require nearly as much data to be stored locally as the previous method. Steam Workshop Images Your mod's Steam Workshop preview image now lives inside of your mod's project folder. This was changed to prevent this reference being lost and then not knowing why you can not upload to the Steam Workshop. Cooking Mods As mentioned above, you no longer need to pick a package location. The Modding 2.0 cooking system will by default pick a good path for you. The first place it tries is your mod's project folder. Sometimes this doesn't work due to various issues (No space available, The pathname is too long, etc...), so cooking will continue to walk up the Squad folder structure until it finds a valid path. If it can't find a valid path (which is unlikely), you can still specify a cooking directory. Example Modding 2.0 Project Structure In-Game Mod Downloads Finally! This what you've all been waiting for, right? We're happy to report that progress is going well on getting in-game downloads working. This is proving to be a much larger task than originally thought, but steady progress is happening! As you can see in the GIF, mods can now be downloaded while the game in running with no problems. This test case is performed during the game is booting up, since we are doing a lot of CPU heavy stuff then: Current Work Currently, work is focused on getting the mods that are being downloaded while the game is running to be recognized by the game. This is quite a bit of work and will be taking up most of my time for the rest of the month, as the engine is not set up to accept PAK files mounted in the middle of the game. Offworld Out.
  3. Hey there, if you installed Squad for the first time (for e.g. after a clean Windows installation) and you install a Squad Mod, you may experience that you can't join a server running this mod, but others can. The reason for that is, that the registry key holding the Squad installation path is no longer be created in this location in registry. To fix that (this is a temporary workaround until it gets fixed in Squad), you need to create the "old" registry key manually. If Squad is installed in the default location C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Squad then you just need to download the following reg file, unzip and execute it: Squad_a-11-0_Modding_Hotfix.zip If Squad is installed in a different location like D:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Squad you need to open the reg-file (right click and choose "Edit") and change the "install_path" from "install_path"="C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Steam\\steamapps\\common\\Squad" to "install_path"="D:\\SteamLibrary\\steamapps\\common\\Squad" (notice the double backslashes \\ ) so that the file content looks like this: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\OffworldIndustries] [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\OffworldIndustries\Squad] "install_path"="D:\\SteamLibrary\\steamapps\\common\\Squad" Save the file and execute it. Your mods should work fine again! Have fun!

  7. Currently working on designing a map that's based on a real world location with additions and changes for gameplay. I want this map to work well with Insurgency, but also other games modes too. It's going to be a big one and it's influenced by a couple of Project Reality maps! Baby steps first though. Without getting too deep into it, I really like the game mode and hope it gets some TLC down the line, as well as more servers running it! However, it definitely needs some maps that are designed with Insurgency in mind. So, what do you guys think makes a good Insurgency map?
  8. Modding Teams?

    Could anyone help me with modding a kind of team, with a uniform and weapon class? Any help would be appreciated! I would like to make a British team, with an L85A2 as the main weapon and the P226 Mk 15 as the secondary Here is a picture of the uniform: Again, any help would be helpful in some way. Thanks in advance!
  9. [Mapping] Lighting Your Map

    Hey all! Here is the YouTube of the lighting stream I did on Twitch. Hope this helps somebody! Resources: Lighting Trouble Shooting Guide ( https://wiki.unrealengine.com/LightingTroubleshootingGuide) Cheers! ..oxy..
  10. Hi Squaddies, Winter may not be coming for all of us, but at least partly on the northern side of this cute little blue ball the days are getting shorter, nights are getting colder and the people spend more time in front of their PC rummaging around inside the Squad SDK. So, let's see what this community came up with in the month of September before hibernation kicks in! 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 passion with like-minded people that will be happy to help you along the way. Afghan Valleys by dazZz-666 Based around the regions of the Hindu Kush mountain ranges between Afghanistan and Pakistan, this map caters to everyone who enjoys fighting in my rural areas as well as people with a taste for urban combat. It has been made with an US vs. Insurgent layer in mind and something for all the fans of the Afghan theatre. FN Minimi Mk3 by Pawin Made for the French Forces Squad mod, this work-in-progress weapon is already a beauty. For the modeler, Pawin, it was quite an unique experience because as everyone who tried to model a machine gun already knows: these things are complex and are filled with a lot of challenging components. Khe Sanh Combat Base by Socrates A regular appearance in these modding recaps, Socrates keeps on working on his Vietnam-themed map centered around the Khe Sanh Combat Base in South Vietnam. His focus for this month were the farms, dense jungles, and the trenches at the center of the map. From time to time, you can catch him streaming the development of the map on his Twitch channel for everyone to enjoy, so keep an eye on the Modding Discord to see it. Amazing to see all the pieces coming together! Al Bab/Syr1a Map by SQ-MAK AVCI Al Bab is a region in Syria not far from Aleppo, about 30 kilometers south of the Turkish border. SQ-MAK AVCI plans to develop a Turkish armed forces mod around this map and it's off to a great start!. So, let's hope we can experience urban street combat between the Turkish Armed Forces and Insurgents soon. IDF Mod: West Bank Village by CreativeRealms Already seen in a previous edition of The Wrench, CreativeRealms has made significant updates to his West Bank map since we've last seen it. He reworked the lighting and ground materials, as well as added some terraces and put some foliage down. The olive trees will provide great cover for any squad moving down the hill in its shadows. There's also a 360-degree view for everyone trying to get a grasp of the map here. Silver by Elitelurker Elitelurker is working on a map in a hilly region, filled with lush, but dry river banks, very steep hills, and winding roads all over it. The varied terrain should challenge squads with a variety of tactics and it will surely prove a challenge for designated drivers, too. Squad Modding Hub Management Team Out. P.S. Zeno loves you.
  11. Alpha 9.15

    Hey Squaddies, Alpha 9.15 is here and we're sneaking the first iteration of modding support out with it. Presenting the Squad Workshop. Please make sure to check out the notes for more information! Fixed Custom Servers browser showing licensed servers. Changed Yeho Invasion 2 Final Stand flag minimum enemies to capture the flag to 3 like all other flags. Fixed a weapons cache spawning in a closed building on Logar Night Insurgency. Mestia: Fixed issues with vehicle claiming and vehicle respawns. Mestia: Did more adjustments to the lighting. Mestia: Regarding a performance issue some users have reported - we are able to reproduce it on one of our systems now. Unfortunately, it's not an easy fix. The affected GPUs need for a certain operation more than twenty times as long as otherwise comparable GPUs. We are still working on a solution. The only way to reduce this issue for now is lowering the in-game resolution. Added initial gameside support for modding and steam workshop integration. Custom servers are now allowed to run modded maps. Players trying to join a modded server will be directed to the steam workshop if they aren't subscribed to the required mods. Read more about modding in the upcoming Modding Recap article. Instructions to get started on modding can be found in the modding section of the wiki: https://squad.gamepedia.com/Category:Modding. Changed game files to packaged format to allow mod packs to be loaded. This causes an increased update size and update install time. We're very, very excited to finally have this in your hands. Hit us with your feedback!
  12. Modding - What (Free) Softwares Might I need

    For like, reskins, maybe 3d modeling, possibly landscaping even though that's in UE4 editor. I screwed up on the brazier tutorial I tried several minutes ago so that gives you sense at my modding experience.
  13. The Wrench - August 2017 Edition

    Hi Squaddies, With StrangeZak working on getting modding support in Squad itself, what better time for The Wrench? August is back to school time, and the modding community is definitely schooling us on what can be done. Let's get educated! 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 passion with like-minded people that will be happy to help you along the way. 120mm Mortar by Bonfunk The French Foreign Legion has a storied history of mortar usage throughout many conflicts. Thus, it's only fitting that 120mm Mortar they've made good use of comes to Squad under the skillful hand of Bonfunk. These work-in-progress shots give us a look at what's to come. (Hint: A lot of fearsome firepower.) Finkarus by LoRDHitMan With all the features to please and a whopping 8x8km island to put them in, Finkarus is sure to please players no matter how they traverse the map. It features multiple cities and villages, two large mountains, many foothills and hilly areas, dense forests, and strategic structures like a bunker and radio tower. This map is sure to only get better as more vehicles are added to Squad. IDF Mod: West Bank Village CreativeRealms West Bank Village is one of a few maps planned for the IDF (Israeli Defense Forces) mod, which offers a unique Mediterranean landscape where every game is (quite literally) an uphill battle. A combination of urban and large open environments will promote the use of more diverse combat tactics and keep both teams on their toes throughout the match. CreativeRealms is bringing some serious tactical challenges. Khe Sanh Combat Base Update by Socrates A U.S. Marines outpost south of the Vietnamese DMZ throughout the war. It is planned to be a 4x4km map ultimately focused on helicopter and ground vehicle warfare. Lots of progress has been made in terms of creating a sky, waterfall, and making the militia main base. Can't wait to see the finished map! Squad Modding Hub Management Team Out.
  14. Since Steam Workshop support is in the works and getting closer day by day, lets have a discussion about modding! Just like the title says, what is your favourite aspect of modding in the Squad SDK? There's a lot to discover and experiment within the Squad SDK - from making maps, vehicles and weapons to creating game modes and making cool systems and mechanics. Personally, my favourite part is creating assets for mappers to use in their environments/maps. Being able to understand how the current assets are made is vital in being able to do this efficiently and to a good level of quality, so it's really cool sifting through all the assets the developers have used in their maps! Do you peeps have any tips and tricks to share with others about your favourite aspect? Please let us know!
  15. The Road to Modding

    The Road to Modding Hi Squaddies, Over the last month, OWI's own StrangeZak (Zak Strange) has been working hard on adding official mod support to Squad. Although we still have a long way to go and everything could still change, our Modding SDK is starting to take shape. The first thing that was tackled was extending the UE4 Editor. With us wanting to be able to do everything from creating and uploading mods from within the editor, we had to add some custom features. The first thing we added were 3 buttons to help manage mods: "Create Mod," "Load Mod," and "Share Mod." While not fashionably Mod, definitely more practical. When "Create Mod" is clicked, a dialog box will pop up asking you for information about the mod you would like to create. Once this form is filled and the "Create Mod" button is clicked, we generate a new folder for your mod in the Plugins/Mods folder, then switch your content browsers view to your mod's Content folder. Inside of your mod's folder is where all content and information about your mod will be stored. This information will later be used when pushing to the Steam Workshop. Edit twice, post once! The Slightly Cool prototyping went better than expected. The "Load Mod" button is a simple interface for loading up your mod's "modinfo.smi" (Squad Mod Info) file. When you successfully select your mod's "modinfo.smi" file, it will load it up, and then switch the Content Browser view to the mod's Content folder: We are still in early stages of the work on sharing mods, but we already have the base ability to be able to share your mod to the Steam Workshop while in editor. When the "Share Mod" button is clicked, you will first be prompted to enter a changelog. This could be something as simple as, "Initial push to the Steam Workshop," or something as detailed as the itemized list of everything you changed in the version you are about to push to Steam. Once you submit your changelog, everything will start being pushed to the Steam Workshop. A progress bar will update you on the progress and stage that the upload is currently on. Now's a good time to join the Squad Modding Discord. Once your upload has finished, you should see it up on the Steam Workshop within a few minutes. At that point, anyone can subscribe to your mod within the Steam Workshop and have it in game. Congratulations, you've made it! The artist really evokes a sense of curves. With all of the Editor Extensions and Steam Workshop interfacing done, the next area I moved on to was getting mods playable in game. Firstly, I had to get the mod's content packed into a .PAK file format. This required me to learn about and use Unreal Engine 4's new DLC system. With all the correct flags in place, they pass to the cooker to prepare the mod as a PAK file with only the contents of the mod. With that done, it's time to get them loaded. For the most part, it seemed as if getting a mod loaded into the game was easy, since the engine seemed to do most of the work. This step proved to be more of a challenge than I had thought it would be. There were quite a few engine changes that had to be done to get everything working. I also did have to add modded maps to Squad's map list at runtime. After the merging of the mod map list and Squads map list, I was finally able to switch to maps in a mod in a release (private branch) copy of Squad. Studio 54 started from less. With all of this work done, modding finally has a solid base and is starting to take shape. There is still some work to be done before we can get it into your hands: Disabling and enabling mods from in-game, downloading mods you are missing when connecting to a modded server, LOTS of cleanup, and many other things. Can't wait to see what you guys will make with these tools! Offworld Out.
  16. La strada verso il Modding

    Ciao Squaddies, Nel corso dell’ultimo mese, lo StrangeZak (Zak Strange) personale di OWI si è concentrato nello sviluppo del supporto al modding di Squad. Nonostante ci sia ancora molto lavoro da fare e molte delle feature cambieranno nel tempo, il nostro SDK per il Modding sta prendendo forma. Il primo scoglio è stato l’espansione dell’Editor per UE4. With us wanting to be able to do everything from creating and uploading mods from within the editor, we had to add some custom features. The first thing we added were 3 buttons to help manage mods: "Create Mod," "Load Mod," and "Share Mod." Vogliamo che tutto sia possibile, dalla creazione al caricamento del mod da parte dell'editor, aggiungendo alcune funzioni personalizzate. Le prime aggiunte sono stati 3 pulsanti per gestire le mod: "Crea mod", "Caricamento della Mod" e "Condivisione della Mod". Anche se non bellissimo, sicuramente pratico. Quando premerete su "Crea mod", apparirà una finestra di dialogo che vi chiederà informazioni sulla mod che si desidera creare. Una volta che avrete compilato questa scheda, cliccate sul pulsante "Crea mod". Genererete così una nuova cartella per ila vostra mod nella cartella Plugins / Mods. Passate quindi alla visualizzazione dei browser per i contenuti nella cartella Content del mod. All'interno della cartella mod saranno memorizzati tutti i contenuti e le informazioni sul tuo mod. Queste informazioni verranno poi utilizzate quando pubblicherete sullo Steam Workshop. Modifica due volte, invia una volta sola! Il primo prototipo funziona meglio di quanto atteso. Il pulsante "Load Mod" è un'interfaccia semplice per il caricamento dei file "modinfo.smi" delle Mod (Squad Mod Info). Quando selezionerete con successo il file "modinfo.smi" del mod, lo caricherà, si passerà quindi alla visualizzazione del Content Browser contenuto all’interno della cartella Content dellla mod: Siamo ancora nelle fasi iniziali del lavoro di condivisione delle mod, ma abbiamo già la capacità di base nel poter condividere la vostra mod nel Workshop di Steam all’interno dell'editor. Quando cliccherete sul pulsante "Share Mod", vi verrà chiesto di inserire un changelog. Questo potrebbe essere un’introduzione semplice come "Prova iniziale per lo Steam Workshop" o qualcosa di più dettagliato come un l'elenco di tutto ciò che avete modificato nella versione che state per caricare su Steam per spingere verso Steam. Una volta inviato il vostro changelog, tutto verrà inviato nello Steam Workshop. Una barra di avanzamento vi aggiornerà sui progressi e sullo stato in fase di caricamento. Ora è il momento perfetto per unirsi al Discord per il Modding di Squad. Una volta terminato il caricamento, dovreste vederlo all’interno dello Steam Workshop in pochi minuti. A quel punto, chiunque potrà sottoscrivere la vostra mod dal Workshop ed averla sul gioco. Congratulazioni, ci siete riusciti! L'artista evoca veramente un senso di curve. Con tutte le interfacce per l’Extension Editor e per lo Steam Workshop concluse, la prossima area in cui mi sono impegnato è stato ottenere mod giocabili in gioco. In primo luogo, ho dovuto rendere il contenuto delle mod in formato file .PAK. Questo ha richiesto di conoscere ed utilizzare il nuovo sistema DLC di Unreal Engine 4. Con tutto correttamente configurato, abbiamo finalmente ottenuto un file PAK con solo il contenuto delle mod. Concluso tutto, è il momento di caricarli. Per la maggior parte sembrerebbe un processo facile far caricare la mod nel gioco, visto che il motore pare fare gran parte del lavoro. Questo passo si è rivelato più arduo di quanto avessi pensato. Vi erano parecchi cambiamenti al motore che dovevano essere fatti per rendere tutto funzionante. Inoltre ho anche dovuto aggiungere mappe modificate alla map list Squad in fase di runtime. Dopo la fusione dell'elenco delle mappe moddate e dell'elenco delle mappe di Squad, sono riuscito finalmente a passare le mappe moddate alla release (in un ramo privato) in una copia di rilascio di Squad. Lo Studio 54 ha iniziato con molto meno. Con tutto questo lavoro effettuato il modding infine ha una base solida e sta cominciando a prendere forma. C'è ancora qualche lavoro da fare prima che possiate metterci le mani anche voi: disattivare ed abilitare le mod in-game, scaricare le mod mancanti quando ci si connette ad un server moddato, TANTISSIMO lavoro di pulizia e tante altre cose. Non vedo l'ora di vedere cosa riuscirete a fare con questi strumenti! Offworld Out. Traduzione: [EI]Aragorn89

  18. Any chance of a modding wiki?

    Hi Devs - any chance of a wiki for modding? I'd be more than happy to contribute pieces here and there as I uncover them. From my own point of view using the SDK is incredibly frustrating atm - so anything that helps get modders up and running faster is likely to be a very good investment. I know its still in alpha and things will change, but at least it would be a starting point. Just my 2c.
  19. THE WRENCH Červenec

    Ahoj, V létě, ne jenom, že je počasí fajn, ale i modující komunita se nám přináší další Wrench. Možná je venku velmi horko, ale ani to nezastavilo naše modery od práce na jejich úžasných projektech.. Nosná loď třídy WASP a LCAC od Legochiel Legochiel si vybral docela projekt. Dopředu už začíná s námořním vybavením s nosnou loďí typu WASP a udělal velký pokrok. Už se těšíme až uvidíme víc hlavně, když už bude trup nabarvený. Vypadá to, že se rád drží myšlence tématu s jeho nedávnou prací na LCAC (vojenské jméno pro vznášedlo), které taky vypadá hodně slibující. Reskin maskujících setů v Substance Painter od Stom Stom pracuje na tom, aby dal komunitě lehkou a rychlou cestu na reskin hráčských modelů bez únavné práce dělání částí textur a používání kamufláže na správných místech. Připravuje soubory Substance Painter, kde každý může načíst tu správnou texturu, která bude aplikována automaticky. Bocage od bestpony Stanovené ve vymyšlené lokaci, bestpony se snaží zachytit styl terénu nejvíce známý z Normandie ve Francii. Známe z 2. Světové Války jako "Hedgerow Hell" (peklo živých plotů), divoké bojování mezi US a ruskými silami se určitě bude konat ve farmách, městech, točitých silnicíh a neprůstupných keřích. Mód na francouzské zahraniční legie od squadfrance.fr Instantně oblíbený komunitou, moderský tým je obvykle zahlcen otázkami a požadavky o informaci o jejich módu na Squad Community modding discordu. Teď s impozantní velikostí týmu, práce postupuje dobře a my můžeme vidět nové součásti a screenshoty zveřejněny regulérně. Brzy budou sdílet postup na jejich webové stránkce. Lidé, kteří rozumí francouzštině už teď můžou sledovat jejich nedávný postup přes jejich blogy. Tutoriál na Squad frakce od r0tzbua Pokud jste viděli jeho Photoshop šablonu, aby rychle dal US modelům nový vzhled měněním kamufláže na textuře tak možná máte chuť experimentovat s frakcemi v Squad SDK. V jeho novém 35 minutovém tutoriálu se snaží podělit o tom, co našel o nastavování frakcí a udělá to lehké, abyste porozuměli vnitřním pracím a jejích rolích uvnitř Squadu nebo alespoň jednou, kdy se dostanete přes jeho rakouský přízvuk. Khe Sanh bojová základna od Socrates Socrates se spojil s některými modery Vietnamské války a začal práci na mapě obsahující bojovou základnu Khe Sanh, US mariňáckou základnu jih od vietnamské DMZ přes válku. Začal před pár dni a další modeři už pracují na jejím obsahu. Je to naplánované na 4x4km mapu ultimátně zaměřenou na helikoptéry a boje pozemních vozidel. CACTF (Tréninková oblast pro kombinované síly) od wunda CACTF může znít jako hodně ozdobený šálek, ale vlastně to je jenom další vojenská přezdívka, kterou si budete snažit zapamatovat. Nicméně wunda pracuje na 6x6km AAS mapě, která se snaží zachytit fiktivní tréninkovou simulaci mezi US a ruskými složkami ve velké US založené tréninkové oblasti. Už to obsahuje 18 nových budov z betonu nebo znovu navržené nákladní kontejnery a simuluje prostřední Středního Východu Skorpo od Zeno Po první ukázce v květnové edici The Wrench, Skorpo prošlo velkou expanzí s většinou hratelného prostoru vykresleného a pracováno na něm (6x6km). Zaměřený na přenesení autentického norského prostředí do života, Zeno dal opatrnou pozornost do realističnosti rozvržení a dohromady s novými budovami překreslenými z reality v práci ,jediná věc,která chybí pro hráče, bude vůně mořské vody a studený vánek Atlantiku.

  21. Scopes and red-dots

    So, I was looking for a way to customize the red-dots and scope reticle colors, and styles to better reflect the variations in scope design. But after I was looking, I am starting to wonder if I am blind? or if the reticles are part of the scopes model?

  23. TROPICAL THUNDER (WIP)

    In order "To seduce the females!" I`ve started this topic. I`d like to show a map that I´ve been workin on.. SQUAD map that I am working on in my spare time. You might have seen something about this on the Wrench or the Squad monthly recap, or on YT videos by other authors. This map started from topography of one of many pacific islands. I manipulated the landscape, and I am using a modified version of the FoolsRoad landscape material. Foliage is mostly SQUAD SDK official foliage and DOKYOS Lowpoly-Rainforest assets. Game-modes will be Insurgency and AAS - probably a day and night version, depending on the game mode. Framerate is just about fine - I might find ways to optimize it tho. Capzones are mostly abandoned ruins in the jungle - doesn´t make much sense, I get it. Since there are no roads on the map (currently), It will be an INFANTRY-only map. I still have to work out proper SFX to make the whole thing appear more bearable - currently its like the lord of the crickets is holding a concert. Full moon is custom made, - there is a good tutorial on YT for that. The water material is translucent, and eating up a lot of shader complexity. Oh, did I mention that the map comes with custom player textures for the RU faction ? Russians will look somewhat 2006-2009ish, with oldskool wooden furniture AK74S and stuff. Anyhow, here´s a bunch of screenshots:
