      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. Just gonna throw out some map Idea's that I personally would love to play on. Now I don't know if some of these would be possible because I don't know the limitations of UE4 thus far but hopefully now or in future optimization updates by the squad team and the UE4 team would allow these to be possible. A lot of these are inspired from other games locations witch are inspired by real locations so its not really copying. ps..gonna be a long post. 1st idea is a North Korean map and make it have a foggy-ish kinda frosty feeling too it or snowy. Have it been a urban cold map almost like the map propaganda from BF4. Here's some pictures for architectural and weather reference Have some tall muli-level enter-able buildings with a cold atmosphere preferably with a heavy or light snow fall and have US Marines vs North Korean's and or South Koreans vs north Koreans or both. That would be so very awesome. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Next map idea would be the arctic. Could have a map at a research station with the US Marines the Norwegians or the Canadians vs the Russians. They could also through some military and research bases in there. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- My 3rd idea is also a snow map ( I love the snow ). It would take place in Alaska near the coast and would be the US Army vs Russia. The Russians could invade from a carrier ship like in PR. There could also be small Alaskan towns. if they could capture the atmosphere of this photo that would be amazing.^ ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Idea number 4! Urban America, only 3 games have done this that I know of and that's homefront, MW2-3 and World in conflict. In almost all shooters its always the middle east or Europe. I personally think it would be refreshing and different throw in some shopping strips and some commercial districts in a American urban map. Plus it offers an opportunity for a cool faction idea ill talk about it at the bottom. This is my favorite idea ^ I think a map or maps based off these would be epic and it could the US marines, US Army and American militia vs China. •Side note I think a American militia/resistance would be a sweet faction and they could have all sorts of weapons us Americans love are guns. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- IDEA 5! This one takes place in jolly old England in sort of a rural part of Britain. It is the British armed forces vs China, Russia or a coalition of some kind or some IRA type of faction. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Next one is a Eastern European setting with a kinda chernobyl industrial vibe. Could be Germans, US, British, French and some eastern European rebel faction vs Russia or some rebel faction. ( why not all right? ) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Next one takes place in CHINA! It could take place in a rural Chinese town with rice farms or by a section of the great wall. Could be any NATO faction vs China. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Finally the last one takes place on the border of Russia and China and it would obviously be China vs Russia just sprinkle some hills and some outposts with some trees and it would be "very nice" ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I really hope the Squad devs branch out and make some really unique buildings and maps and push the unreal engine. besides just sand and tree's with the occasional bunker and mud hovel (Don't get me wrong I like those kind of maps they have their place I just want some spice). They have made great maps in PR so looking back I have high expectations. And if they need more funding to make it happen hell ill drop another $20 to help this game become one of the greatest teamwork fps's ever. So what do you guys think? If you have any other map idea's just slap that shiz down in a reply.
  2. I have had an idea that I think would work very well to keep maps feeling "fresh" and to make each game feel unique. ​Each map should have a large amount of POSSIBLE control points and at the beginning of each game a random selection of 4 or 5 should be selected for that match. This way, if a map had 20 possible control points & each game had a random selection of 5 points, the amount of different map variations would be MASSIVE & it would mean each game would need to be tackled differently than the last, which would keep the maps feeling different everytime... I hope that makes sense lol This idea could be extended upon even further by having 2 main base locations for each side, with 1 randomly chosen at the beginning, to again mix things up each match. I have quickly created the following images to demonstrate the idea, obviously the possible control points would be careful selected so that they are areas of interest such as hill tops, buildings, sniper tower, tunnels, bridges, etc The main reason behind having a variation of control points is to simply stop the map from becoming the same routine over & over again, instead of knowing that you need to head to point A and then attack point B from the south you would have to plan each attack as if it was the first time. I would doubt you would ever play the same combination of control points, keeping the map feeling different each time. ALL POSSIBLE CONTROL POINTS MAP - http://postimg.org/image/5umvjhvz1/ VARIATION 1 - http://postimg.org/image/8pzyqczz1/ VARIATION 2 - http://postimg.org/image/58xwne0wt/ VARIATION 3 - http://postimg.org/image/jtezi7vvh/ ETC :)
