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.

With the changes in V12 -- increased map sizes, vehicle torque, FOB locking, persistent ammo, etc -- logistics has become a nightmare, ruining the fun and pacing of the game. It's particularly bad on public servers when people don't want to spend 10 minutes making a logi run up a steep hill, when they'll just get blown up and waste the effort. However, while most players don't like driving a logi all match, most don't mind a quick trip for supplies every once and a while. Solution: Player-built supply FOB's. The core of Squad is player interaction, so I think it's important to make sure the focus remains on teamwork, communication, and player driven actions. It still needs to be a fun game to play in both public and organized matches, and players aren't going to stick around to grow the community if they aren't spending most of the play time talking with squadies and shooting stuff. The idea is to make logi runs player-driven, short and sweet, but still vulnerable to ambush and supply chain scarcity. Supply dumps can be built at FOBs, which slowly generate supplies. They must be at least 1000m away from active flags, 600m away from mortars, and 1000m away from other supply depots. These numbers should be examined but I think they're a good starting point. This shortens supply runs on large maps and maps with crappy geography/steep hills, but still requires teamwork and planning to execute. This will encourage supply fobs to be built in areas where it makes sense: major cross roads, easy access, defensible, etc. However, mortars can't be spammed with free ammo from the supply dump, it still takes a logistics network to supply them, and supply dumps are placed far enough apart to prevent easy exploitation. This can also be used to keep old FOBs behind the front line relevant as the team advances. Logis get dragged from one base to the next and run between the current FOB and the previous FOB. Need supplies? Spawn at the previous FOB and pick up the abandoned logi there. Then fill it up at the supply depot and drive it forward. Getting pushed back? Dig up the Supply depot and move it back. Then build mortars to replace the supply depot and shell the enemy advance. Advancing quickly? Dig up the mortars and place a supply depot, then build a new forward FOB. Points generate slowly so you still have strained supply lines while teams are advancing quickly, and if the defending team is holding out against heavy assault, close supply points may run low and require longer supply runs to more distant points. Squads can also go behind enemy lines to make logi runs more treacherous/longer as trucks need to drive further back to avoid ambushes. Also, SLs will have to try and hide supply dumps once helicopters are added so that they don't get nuked from orbit
How many of you guys are ETS/ATS Guys? That also do Logi runs for the WIN!! You logi guys are the REAL MVP's out there, so how cool would this be?? Working on this side project. @IrOnTaXi, @Merlin email me at [email protected] when/if you get a chance. I have factory support from Logitech, and Thrustmaster, as well as Fanatec, but they are extremely busy with DD Podium Wheel stuff. Also, the Unreal Bros at Kunos Simulazioni are onboard to help us get this sorted. Stay tuned! Feel free to email me at [email protected] as I am rarely able to check PM's these days, but I do eventually read EVERY SINGLE EMAIL Keep up the great freaking work too guys, you are truly the best there is. At least that I know of haha. Squad is really freaking awesome. Even in it's infancy it is still miles ahead of Battlefield, Call of Doodie, ARMA, and all the other "Battlefield Type" titles, all things considered. And, the potential is sooooo EPIC.
Right now the holding shift function to stay in first gear isnt really working out. when you head up a hill already with some speed you are unable to switch to first gear. you need to stop in order to go to first gear. i'd say just give the full function to switch between gears.
With the accession of the 3 man TOW team, could we get the TOW to be in a building Tree of HAB>TOW so not just the placement of the TOW from the FOB. Yes I know it sounds like I'm saying stop the 3 man squad, but no could we get a transport that can deploy a TOW with the same restrictions of FOB placement but without a Logi resources 2k truck. Have an MRAP or a like that you can drop the TOW, thus freeing up the logi truck. People are dropping FOBs and leaving them just with the TOW no way of reinforcing or removing.
Squaddies and Devs, Currently, a FOB needs a HAB for fellow team members to spawn. As a FOB is being attacked, the HAB timer increases. Would it be a good idea for a well-supplied FOB to have a low or 0 second respawn timer? So that if a team keeps regular Logistics runs to a FOB, it can be rewarded by faster Respawn and similar team benefits? Thanks for your time!
What are your guys' best Logi Runs? Here is mine: My Best Logi Experience I wish so much I recorded it. It was on Fools Road while on millitia a few months ago. My squad and I were on the hill 123, we were holding it with nearly the rest of our team, doing really well, until we got suddenly wiped on it out of nowhere. With the exception of myself and one of my squad members (we just spawned at main) the only other people on our team alive at that time was a single squad just taking up positions in popanav and a friendly mortar crew on ammo. Myself and my other squad member were trying to run supplies to set up a HAB in Popanav, everyone else in our squad held their spawns. The enemy had finally literally just neutralized hill 123 and capped the point a few seconds after we pulled the logi out of main. Shortly down the road we started getting engaged by infantry before we came direct north of hilltop. Which was surprising. (Later our team realized that the enemy had just set up an FOB there, on hilltop). We didnt know where the fire was coming from so we cut south off the main road at the break in the guard rails and continued to parallel the road , eventually hoping to cut back on and drive north to popanov. Exactly at the time our small journey had begun from main the entire enemy team coordinated a huge push to popaonav and north village. Coming from Hill 123, Hilltop and the surrounding area. We had no idea that the enemy was ready to move in that quickly so we ended up driving through the middle and wake of the frontline. We were constantly getting peppered by infantry, shot at by vehicles, missed by over 5 rpgs and almost killed by friendly mortars. We drove parallel from north west of hilltop all the way into north village, and missed our turn (I wasnt paying attention as we were being shot at from everywhere even north, on the other side of the road and was worried we would get killed if we didnt keep going east as the dips and trees were the only thing keeping us alive). We didnt realize we were driving through the frontlines til that dip between hilltop and hill 123.Where we had a short break from the contact. We stopped and debated what to do. I decided to try and to continue driving to popanav, if the enemy team had already missed us that much and we had already made it that far I thought we could beat them to popanav by driving through north village, hoping to use the buildings as cover from infantry on the road road to the west. And we knew there was potentially enemy vehicles to the east of hill 123 (i think i remember we heard an mg in that direction, thats why), so we concluded going through the center of north village was the best route. Not knowing if the enemy was currently occupying it, since we took very very heavy contact already from the area north of hilltop we decided to throw the dice. We decided my compatriot should jump out, no sense in losing both of us if the enemy was on north village and that he would be in a powerful position being behind the frontline. So I kept driving.Coming through the trees to village i saw that it was literally crawling with 2 whole enemy squads walking around outside of the buildings. Fortunately most of them were facing other directions. So i was able to drive right through the middle of them. One enemy started shooting at me, I ran him over on the way up the island to popanav when multiple rpgs hit me at once and finally blew up the logi. We made it 500-600m without taking a scratch, being targeted by the entire enemy team. And were under fire for probably a whole minute + in total, died exactly 100m from the enterance of poponav. My squad mate who was dropped off also died a few minutes later but, after relaying how many enemies were on north village he took up position on the hill south and was able to rack up around 11 downs before a gl killed him. Awesome Game.
I don't know if this has been suggested before but why not have a visual queue inside the truck linked with the stuff in the back so you don't need to switch seats or jump out to check you have supplies? Something like this:
steering weels system is not realistic. there is a delay between the action and the reaction of the steering weels, thats mean when we are driving any vehicle and we steer left or right by using the arrows the weels takes fraction of sec to follow the command, its not executed directly and thats make the driving system soooo hard and not realistic at all. you can keep the feeling that all the vehicles are heavy by controlling the throttle behavior but steering shouldnt have the same algorithm. pls fix it we dont have to start steering before the turn comes up. regards
