      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. Hey Hey Squadmates!!! Sorry I haven't been around much, but between school and a national powerlifting meet I had the pleasure to compete in, I've been too busy. This had me thinking, probably most of us are concerned about our health or physique or maybe someone here just want to better themselves. There is a lot of health and fitness knowledge here between the people that served and the grunts that just enjoy staying fit. _______________________________________________________________ A little about my background: I played the usual highschool sports like football and track. I started weight training at an early age but was terribly noobish at it. My idols growing up were Joe Montana, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Dale Earnhardt. While in the Navy I swam and ran a lot as well as ate everything in sight. After leaving the Navy I fell away from running and swimming and found a passion for powerlifting; squat, bench, and deadlift. My first meet was in 2010. Terribly low numbers but I was addicted to stepping onto the platform. A little over a dozen meets later and I finally made it to Nationals. It was a fantastic time and a great learning experience. Over the last 5 years competing I have tried numerous methods of gaining strength and endurance. Some worked and some didn't. I learned how valuable diet is to training at a competitive level as well as being healthy. Besides my everyday training I also teach a weight lifting class where I work and where I train, and I coach the number 3 female lifter in the nation. _______________________________________________________________ My hopes are that people will gravitate here for advice or to share their experiences. ~ Iron
  2. When I am shot while holding rpg or AT4 and I go heal myself it takes forever for it to transition to bandage. Now in real life I would just throw down my rpg at4 to heal myself and I certainly wouldn't take my time. Could this be fixed?
  3. Medical System

    I just can't stop. Send help. Medical system: I imagine currently, you're going for PR's medical system, IE roughly <80% you bleed, roughly <20% you're B/W, <0% you're incapacitated. I think this system served its purpose for a game on the Refractor engine, but UE4 likely opens up a lot more possibilities. ArmA 2 ACE system: Emulation of the ArmA 2's ACE medical system is one option. Three things: BleedingPain Incapacitation Health Three items to counter them: Bandages Morphine Epinephrine Medkits In ACE's medical system, there are many things that determine what state a wound leaves you in; Where it hits, how fast the bullet was travelling, what calibre it is and your medical condition prior to being hit. This can be very unforgiving - The same bullet that might just give you a flesh wound in the arm could also kill you outright in the head or chest. If you loose too much blood before bandaging, you are prone to passing out. If you are still not bandaged, you die. If you are in too much pain, you can pass out. If you are incapacitated, you yourself can do nothing about it. These values are all independent of one another as far as I can tell. You can take a bullet, bleed like a stuck pig and be in more pain than when you stepped on Lego, but not pass out. You can take a bullet to the plate, get knocked unconscious and be in pain, but not bleed. In addition to these conditions, your wounds also affect your combat effectiveness. Wounds to your legs will impede your mobility (Forcing you to crawl in A2 and prior; Limping would be preferable if possible, crawling only if both legs are buggered), wounds to the arms will make it a lot harder to aim. I'd also suggest having torso wounds impact stamina if possible. Medics can apply medical supplies at a faster rate than a regular kit, and depending on the server, are the only ones who can use medkits, which will fix any damaged limbs and restore some health (The amount restored diminishes as medkits are applied to the same soldier) ACE also allowed for dragging incapacitated soldiers and loading them into vehicles or stretchers. Anyone can bandage up (And everyone has a bandage), apply morphine or epinephrine to anyone else, but medics would be the ones with the supplies. Pros: More involved and realistic medical system, makes you REALLY not want to get shot. Neutral: More complex, may take some learning Potential instant-deaths from single bullets; could be frustrating for scrublords (This could be sorted - If your health reaches zero you are simply unconscious for a set amount of time until seen to by a medic or bleed out. If you are shot while incapacitated, you die though. Once "revived", you would be immobilised and have to be medic'd. You can also be dragged while heavily injured) Cons: May be more effort than it's worth in the game's context Note that I'm not necessarily suggesting that everything be taken from this system and transplanted into Squad, but there are parts that can make it a lot more in-depth. There's also America's Army's medical system, but it's been so long since I've played that, I can barely remember it
  4. Hola! Haven't been able to play Squad yet, just watching videos and stuff on youtube and keeping up with your progress. One day I would love to join a team like this so hopefully your still developing in a few years. I can't describe how excited I am to play it myself soon :) Anyways onto my idea, it is simple to implement and simple to understand. I propose that medics have 3 different healing speeds based on soldier stance. Crouched - %100 Standing - %70-85 Prone - %30 My reasoning is this, in a real life situation it would be most beneficial for a field medic to be "over" the wounded person. Crouched, or sitting beside a soldier who is also sitting, or lying down. Expanding on this it may even be beneficial to add another factor being the target soldiers stance, with prone being %100 effective. Moving around I think should affect the speed as well, perhaps a -%50 loss in effectiveness if one or more of the parties involved are in motion. Maybe you guys have considered this, maybe not. I think it would definitely slow down the game a bit, but it would make establishing a safezone for healing more of a priority like in real life.
  5. Health indicator

    I like how the screen flashes red while injured, bleeding. How about having it flash red as is while injured, bleeding until bandaged and remaining red tint until healed by medic for a player indication for health.
  6. Hi. This thread is dedicated to all of us due to the saying "I am Dead-Dead" How to stop this? Simple, in a training mode or manual or community effort there needs to be a clarification. Dead is Dead. You're not being resurrected by a medic.Injured needs a medic bag for magical human flesh crisis resolutionCritical is the guy who's on the floor and needs to be electrocuted to come back to lifeSounds cool? Cool.
