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.

THE PROJECT Roadmap https://trello.com/b/d43KRBwe This faction description aims to outline a path for those who wish to see and play with the Brazilian Army one day, a dream that began in Project Reality (2005) but never came true, leaving it to Squad the opportunity to host one of the most complete armed forces in the southern hemisphere. Perhaps the most important thing to say about this topic is that if we (Brazilians and armies enthusiasts from South America) don't come together to plan and execute a Brazilian faction idea, it's very likely that it will never take off. It's not asking OWI Devs that such a faction will come true. Having said that, I gather here the main current features of the Brazilian Army, also considering the balance between what is new in the Armed Force and what is already well established, but NEVER considering features that don't belong to the Brazilian Army. But if you still have questions about whether this is worth it, take a look at the potential: Let's take the first step? INFANTRY Squad Structure of Brazil Army: Through this book from the Army Library, I found out the most current terrestrial squad structure.

ENVIRONMENTS & ENEMIES Rainforest Environment: Amazon Jungle (wiki: en / pt) (environment video) is a moist broadleaf tropical rainforest in the Amazon biome that covers most of the Amazon basin of South America. This region includes territory belonging to nine nations, but Brazil controls 60% of that. In the military, it's well known that the Brazilian Army is the largest rainforest combat specialist in the world, with hundreds of military personnel from other nations going to CIGS (Jungle War Instruction Center). Although the overwhelming majority of Brazilians have never seen a jungle in person, when we think of the Brazilian Army biome being in combat, we think of the Amazon (a region larger than Italy and France combined). It turns out that Amazon isn't just a dense jungle. Amazon has rocky areas and low vegetation. And for Squad this is an example that might work very well: the Amazon region called Pico da Neblina that borders Venezuela. Real enemy: In the Amazon region, Narcos. Fictional enemy: Brazil is super friendly. Fact! But in the lasts years, Venezuela borders gave some attention. What do you think? Heightmap: I'm using this real heightmap for my Roraima map on Unreal Engine 4.You can check it on GoogleMaps or on OpenTopoMaps too. Outskirts Urban Environment: as suggested by Brazooka and heborn, an urban CQB scenario in the outskirts of Rio ("periferia" in Portuguese) could be awesome, but I'd dismiss the idea of bringing a police force (Ground Branch game style) to maintain Squad's logic of prioritizing regular armies. Quite complicated topic. Rio got criminal factions and militias ones but, even the Army sometimes get into Favelas, day-by-day they are not there. That role goes to BOPE (Military Police Special Force). I am not sure if this environment is for Squad gameplay, although at least once a year some f***ing heavy weapon is found at Favelas of Rio. Btw, assets would be a huge work in this option! HUGE! Real enemy: Narco factions as Comando Vermelho (CV). Fictional enemy: Heavy Narco militia? Heightmap: My suggestion is this area for extracting the heightmap for Unreal Engine. That zone is pretty famous and we get a favela (Vidigal) on the west. Caatinga Environment: the Caatinga (wiki en / pt) (environment video) is a xeric shrubland and thorn forest, which consists primarily of small, thorny trees that shed their leaves seasonally. Cacti, thick-stemmed plants, thorny brush, and arid-adapted grasses make up the ground layer. Most vegetation experiences a brief burst of activity during the three-month long rainy season. The Brazilian Army has an unique leather uniform for that kind of sharp environment. This environment is the dream of many Brazilians wanna play with the Brazilian Army because that landscape exists only in Brazil. Real enemy: historically, and many centuries ago, the real Brazilian enemy in this region was the Dutch Armed Forces. Today there is no real threat. Heightmap: My suggestion is this area for extracting (GoogleMaps / OpenTopoMaps). Haiti Urban Environment: Minustah was a Haitian mission in operation from 2004 to 2017 (wiki en / pt) (environment video). Following the 2010 Haiti earthquake, the United Nations reported that the headquarters of the mission in Port-au-Prince had collapsed and that the mission's chief, Hédi Annabi of Tunisia, his deputy Luiz Carlos da Costa of Brazil, and the acting police commissioner, RCMP Supt. Doug Coates of Canada, were confirmed dead. Caos. To paraphrase General Heleno, "Although the shootings were daily in Port-au-Prince, the problem was not the out-of-power Haitian military, but the gangs that were infiltrating the city and had no commitment to anything." Although a regular against an irregular force is fun for many players like Al Basrah and Sumari maps, the gangs (without real heavy weaponry) of a miserable country haven't had a chance against a Regular Army. To make Port-au-Prince a Mogadishu (from the Black Hawk Down movie), we would have to create a more powerful enemy faction. But which one would be worth creating? It would get to be usable for other conflicts too. Suggestions? Real enemy: former Haiti solders and gangs. Fictional enemy: no clue. Heightmap: Port-au-Prince on GoogleMaps and OpenTopoMaps. MAPS Yanomami 4km x 4km AAS + RAAS + Invasion Here is my planning for the "Yanomami" map. Soon I'll set some shots about it: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1FhBUwgfLscjxUmpvta0lvxn1b9A5wyHFbxbup_Yp9IM/edit?usp=sharing OUR TEAM Carneiro and thy. Feel free to contribute and share!

Hello, I'm Brazilian and I like this game, and just like me other Brazilians play it too, and I would like to give you an idea, for example: The Brazilian army against the criminal factions of Brazil, the Brazilian army against the guerrillas in the Amazon, and also maps like FAVELA and AMAZONIA, and just an idea, did anyone get this idea?
