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.

thy (bra) posted a topic in Feedback & Suggestions* Originally posted on July, 22th 2019 by me on Squad Community's Discord. Inconsistency in the Squad's 3d model of Insurgents Although a faction ONLY based on elements of real insurgency, all insurgent groups in both the Middle East and Southeast Asia adopt different Muslim branches but still moderate Islam rules. With this in mind, it is factual to say that it would be more consistent to have no insurgents wearing shorts in Squad game. As the Soo Kim report in The Telegraph newspaper points out, the Islamic countries' dress code is as restrictive for men as it is for women. For us from West and not Muslim, it seems just a silly detail, but it is not, even possible.

I think it would be a cool, not inmediatly necessary, but never the less a nice feature if they added an option in the settings where you can either customize vaguely a soldier for each faction or the possibility to choose beetwen male and female soldier models (for every faction, a standard model like there is now, but with females too) As in the armies around the world there are not only men but women fighting. I would like it very much if it was added.
Nemesis posted a topic in Feedback & SuggestionsHello This is Nemesis, I have to admit that the Development of Squad has been amazing! Everybody probebly Agrees that Squad has made a Huge Jump in the Progress Report inside the Latest Update. When I have time I jump inside Squad and Find it kinda Easy to bECOME a Squadleader, Couple clicks here and walla I am the Big bad Bandino. I Happen to win some and loose some rounds inside squad that I am really proud of Leader. The begining of Squad in 0.4 When My Buddies where Alpha Testing and I was working on Project Reality I happen to meet couple guys and gals that have tought me something alot better than to lead a Team. They Tought me one of the biggest problems of Soicety and that is Getting to know OURSELFS, I beleive there is the person inside that makes us Proud and also a person that Takes care of his Family and watches out for his or her kids, But admit that there is a Soldier in all of us. One way to descibe the Leader is by leading by example. Leadership is required to make progress in the mid of Battle, as you all know Stress becomes a favorite. My favorite kit is Squadleader does not make you a Leader it just happends it puts you in charge of a Mission. If you all know the Diffrence between buying your Coffee and Drinking your own Coffee. Please Take note that Characters inside Squad can be quite funny and or very quite. Value the Squad based on the Squadleaders decitions not his by his or her Gamer Tag. Trust me because your in a Professional Gaming Leauge this does not Mean you are in charge.Trust . What I suggest is that in this Fourm is that anyone that is learning to trust there Squad must Learn to Re-Evaluate ourselfs and Learn from mistakes your leaders have made and Make Smart Choices about Leading by example not by Honors.
OK I know I mentioned this long ago, in a third person thread. What if there was a dog character one guy could play in each squad? As a dog you get to become a sneaky fast running scout that is hard to shoot at while running. You can run in and out of enemy territory and relay info to your squad or team. I know it's out there, but maybe mod the dog for fun? You could have attack dogs, fast dogs, Weener dogs...LOL! Maybe you turn back into a soldier once your killed and a different guy gets to be the dog and take turns being the dog. This is not a suggestion but just up for discussion and some laughs maybe. dogs or no dogs? Would he have third person view? Could he bark? Bite? Pee on someones leg? Enemy dog spotted! Maybe shooting dogs not allowed. Or maybe dog is just AI character that can be sent to drag injured soldiers off the field for rescue, back to a medic. A medic dog?
Traditionally with BF2: PR weapon and character customisation was limited. I wanted to suggest a system similar to the one they have in Insurgency, if of course any of this is possible (I do not know the limitations of the UE4 engine) Each option adds to the overall weight of the soldier, thus changing performance (running speed, jump height etc), but maybe without the need for a supply point based system. Either ttachments can be earned (level up rewards ala old school CoD4).
So i found these while i was going through the forum and i was wondering if these still exist and if they do are they textured in the OCP camo? I know that the US forces are going to be redone at some point but if these do exist still is there any chance we can have them ;) I personally would LOVE! to see these 2 used sm082 & sm041
Hi, i have been playing the commander pre-alpha release and friends and i have noticed something peculiar about the character sizes. We were in a engagement the enemy's were on a hill about 500 meters away. I was expecting to see smaller targets but they looked like they were right next to me. I don't know if that's just my friends and i or if you already know but i haven't seen it on the forum.
