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.

elrammstein posted a topic in General DiscussionMORDHAU currently has 30k players, i understand that player bases fluctuate but it would be great to see 30k players on squad. that being said the gameplay in squad is solid but could be further improved with some gory visuals, i.e more blood. the prior thread cites a reason for this being the game would not be able to be sold in Germany so i guess my question is what is the German business case to not include gore and does it outweigh more sales? there could be a survey for this. thread a long long time ago:
Hello Boys, Here a question poll. Do you want more gore in Squad? Let's push this topic to get a decision from the devs. EDIT: WE NEED A SOLUTION. LETS FIGURE IT OUT TOGETHER SQUAD! IF YOU WISH THAT GORE WILL BE AVIABLE ON EVERY SERVER, THIS MEANS, BECOME AN OFFICIAL PART OF THE GAME. VOTE AND SUPPORT US. LET OFFWORLD HEAR YOUR SHOUT / REQUEST! Greetings David
The blood splash at the hit of a person is already good. But I think you should install more. -Blood texture on the clothes, exactly where it has been hit -Blood traces on the ground in case of serious injuries (disappear after approx. 60 seconds) It makes the game more authentic. Can you please install that? All the best Michael
So.. let's talk about gore. Is it something we will see in the future? Limbs flying, blood pouring down the street down the street drain and splattering on the walls? Brains blown up by a 50. cal round? Medics getting blood on the hands and arms ect after reviving dead soldiers?? These are just things that makes the game more realistic. But im aiming at some thing like the Red Orchestra franchise.
I would like to have a realistic blood and gore system to the game. Like when there is an explosion right under you, a leg come off and blood spray like everywhere. Or when you get shoot the bullet wounds are realistic and bloody. And when an enemy shoots you and you dont bandage yourself, you will leave a trail of blood behind you so it will get easier for the enemys to find you. When you get shoot on some areas of the body would like it if that area wouldent really work or if you get shoot in the arm you cant use very well. Im not a pychopath, i just want it to be realistic and making it as close to real war is it gose. And if you dont like blood and gore, there should a option to turn it down or just off.
Before you say ''Developers already said no...'' hold up. I understand developers not adding gore since its going to get squad blocked in some countries but a lot of people want gore. What they can do is: Make a clean version, like AAA games do. While its violent in one country it will be less violent (or how it is right now) in another. OR They can do what Total War series did Sell the gore as a cheap dlc. You guys are probably tired of seing threads about gore but it would make kills satisfying and realistic. I saw a developer say that they have already tried gore, upload the screenshots, or gifs of it?
Yea i'm sure everyone wants gore in a realistic shooter. 1) Blood. Bloodied bullet holes in dead bodies/ injured bodies. 2) blown by grenade launcher / rpg? Leg / feet / arm goes off. Even head. 3) blood coming out of entry hole (animation) 4) blood on trees because of blood from bodies. 5) slight, very little blood in the waters when taken shot.
This topic should be a direct response to: Z-trooperPosted 17 October 2014 - 04:24 PM I am going to re-quote a part in his response. "We already have some test gore effects implemented, and I did not feel good after emptying a mag into a dummy soldier. It was neither glorious, cool or "awesome", it was a bit sobering especially when the models look like humans." As this game is aiming to be realistic i would say that one should not feel "good, or awesome," when seeing this effect on a realistic human model, but instead the opposite. Either disgusted, and or revolted. I think this is the whole point of immersing a player into this realistic tactical shooter. I shot someone while playing squad and heard their crying screams as they were killed, these screams then turned into hopeless sobbing. I was disgusted and became that much more immersed into squad. I felt more like i was actually in combat. It seems odd to me that the squad developers would add these gruesome sound effects into their game but are opposed to gore or blood. Or more than just a puff of dirt. I feel it would only be fair to the squad community to post some screenshots of the gore effect you have already implemented. It would be very interesting to see how people react and or think about the adding of that effect. Now i understand that this would limit to where you can sell the game legally. However i don't think that a country's restrictions, should restrict this game. All of what i have said in this post is out of respect. Squad developers, you guys are fuckin rocking and i have been waiting for your next shooter ever since PR. Thank you. Thank you all for your Replies. I would like to mention that i do think turning this game into a gore fest would be wrong. However as stated by many, a bullet hole exit wound or some blood stain on the soldiers clothes with some added dust particle effects would be a nice touch. Maybe also being hit in the head should be an instant kill with no revival, as well as a bullet hole in the face.
The death of soldier should be a huge thing, not just an "oh shit he died again" Gore and dismemberment in game can help change the feeling of the game, just like brothers in arms or red orchestra it can make the game feel super brutal and add another level of emersion. also the voices in the game can help add the feeling of "war is hell" Also for gore if you can make it part of the game, like if you blow off your legs you still crawl and shoot as you black out or if your shot in the arm you can only use you other arm to fire you side arm. It makes the bullets feel like a physical thing. Unlike in Arma if you get shot your screen just changes color. If a person gets hit, the character should yell as he gets hit and dust should fly from the area he was hit, it will help indicate if he was hit. I feel like these things would differentiate this from the many Military sims out there.
The blood spray looks pretty cool and is practical (to see if you hit the enemy), but Squad is supposed to be realistic so it should be removed from the game. Unlike in movies there is no blood spray/splatter when someone gets hit by a bullet in real life, except when the victim is shot in the head by a shotgun (at close range) or when the head explodes. I guess most factions will wear helmets so even blood spray from headshots wouldn`t make sense ingame.
Alright, so from what I've seen this is pretty much an awesome, awesome looking military simulator. It looks freaking amazing. It looks very immersive, but it's in a combat environment, it's a war. Can we please get some gore, as in dismemberment and body fragments flying off, etc? No, I'm not a gore fanatic. I just wanna get a slight case of PTSD from this game. I wanna be even more immersed, I want to have my friends fighting along side me and then one of them gets half of his face blown apart. I've seen war footage, and other gross stuff on the internet, that's quite disturbing. The human body seems to be pretty fragile..Especially in war with rounds flying by your face. I've also heard some nasty stories from veterans. If this game were to get a realistic, polished gore system, people would probably enjoy it more, and feel more immersed, seeing their squad mates getting ripped apart by tank rounds, or heavy machinegun fire. It'd be sweet. also being able to shoot at a group of taliban with a 50. cal machine gun and then being able to run up there and see the mess you made. Seriously, a gore system in this game would make it a lot better, and add more immersion and scary moments, which players would enjoy. There could even be an option to turn the gore off for some people that don't like it. Thoughts?
Is there a chance that you may add blood physics, and rag doll physics? They were good in Unreal Engine 3, and I'm sure they can be perfected in Unreal Engine 4. The reason I ask, is because it adds morbid realism to the game, and it makes downing an enemy more satisfying. Also, the blood can be used to know if you have gotten a hit on the person you're shooting at. Like in CS:GO, there is no indication on if you've hit someone except the blood splatter behind them or the bullet wounds on their body. I want to see something like in Red Orchestra 2, or Brothers in Arms: Hells Highway. And of course, there can be the option to turn them off. Anyway, so far, this game looks great! Keep up the good work.
