      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 guys, i'm just wondering. the glitch where you delete a particular 'folder'(not going to name the one, incase it didnt get fixed) which removes trees, grass etc has that been fixed? i'm not really keen about getting shot from the other side of the map every 1 m again. Thanks.
  2. militia and insurgents

    as of right now both the militia forces and the insurgents are basically mirrored in thing like weapons and vehicles, i was wondering as the game develops more, how will the militia differ from the insurgents? if they do at all
  3. Disclaimer: If Squad is no longer using VAC and has fully switched over to EAC, then please just say so. If VAC is still officially used, then please read on. --------------------------------------------- From Steam, I go to the view menu/servers. Filter on Squad. And what do I see if I filter on secure servers? A bunch of empty servers. What do I see if I select "Not secure?" All the servers I've been playing on. Every single one. (I won't name them, but they're visible to anybody who looks at the list.) So, exactly how is VAC supposed to benefit the player community if nobody is actually running it on their servers?
  4. Reference - http://media.joinsquad.com/2016/Nov/NovemberRecap/1p_Intro!.mp4 My main gripe is with the sideways rotation, when the player character in the video swings the M4 to the side. This would perhaps make sense for swift 160+ degree turns, but the preview gives an impression of the gun hanging on strings. Personally, I would tone down the sideways rolling and instead add a vertical yaw, slightly delayed much like the animation in the preview, so that it still plays a certain amount of time after the mouse stops moving - making the sights the more misaligned the bigger and faster the turn. Add in a well placed forward pitch of the barrel(or make the camera go slightly up) to reveal part of the sights from a sort of top down view, when the mouse sweep is also a bit vertical to simulate regaining your aim and in my opinion it'd be perfect! Of course someone else might have a totally different idea, so please share your thoughts on the animations, so that the devs get some inspiration and can nitpick things from our feedback that they deem worth trying out.
  5. Crewman Kit

    ,Since vehicles like the BTR-80 and other tracked apc's are coming in, will there will be crewman kits like in Project Reality? I am not sure if anybody addressed this or not, so please tell me if this question has already been answered or not. Thanks!
  6. Maybe this is discussed to death (didn't find anything) and is not top priority, but can you please, just like in PR do, while you are in hip mode in 1st person, in 3rd person show that gun is lowered? In most cases, it really feel annoying and unnecessary. Maybe is just me or others feel the same? Thank you for response in advance.
  7. Combining and mixing different mods

    Sorry if these has been answered before: 1) will it be possible to combine more than 1 mod in the same server? Like onde modder creates a new faction and another one creates a new HUD element, would it be possible to run both at the same time on the same server in the future? 2) In that case, will "clashes" eventually happen, where one mod "steps over" another one, in case both try to change the same part of the game at the same time? If so, will there be a "mod compatibility" management, like a list or table in the wiki stating which mod is compatible to each other or something like that? 3) In case there is a new faction mod (like german army), and another group creates another faction mod (like turkish army), would it be possible to have third mod with a map including both factions, even if they belong to different mods? 4) I guess the question is: how will the combination and mixing of different mods at the same server work in Squad?
