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.

Hi Squaddies, Welcome to The Wrench! We're going to be doing something a little different this month. With the free weekend beginning on Thursday, June 21, we wanted to present some of the mods the Squad community has battle-tested for top-notch fun. But first, there are a couple of things you should know about modding: It's a system in progress and what you'll see is still changing. If you're curious, you can check out the latest update on modding right here. Second, standard Squad servers and servers running mods are broken into two tabs in the server browser. You'll want to navigate to Custom servers to check out any mods. Lastly, if you're interested in Squad mods or modding, we recommend joining the Squad Modding Hub Discord. Once you're there, you'll find many of the folks responsible for some of the coolest things happening in Squad right now! Join us on the Community Modding Discord where you can join discussions and meet the modding community. It's a great place to share your ideas and passions with like-minded people that will happily help you create something awesome. Destruction Game Mode Modder Virus.exe, with the help of folks like Assi, Nordic, Rincewind, and more, has been hard at work for awhile on this game mode; we last saw it back in January. It has progressed nicely and you can find it on its Steam Workshop page. How do you play Destruction? Truly a community effort, Destruction really makes teamwork shine, so be sure to strap on your headset and keep an ear open for your squad leader's commands. Forest Air by SilenTblooD One of the most beautiful maps in the Workshop, Forest Air is a perennial favorite in The Wrench. SilenTblooD has a keen eye for atmosphere, which just oozes from the screenshots: If you want to check out Forest Air, head over to the Workshop page! Be sure to leave some feedback in the comments -- your input matters! Helicopter Test by Heedicalking/MF Cool While it's not quite ready for Alpha 11, this chopper mod has been delightful to play with and has definitely earned a place on this list. While Squad will have its own helicopters at launch, that's no reason not to explore the wonders of soaring through the skies - or the terror of plummeting to the ground. Head over to their Workshop page to see what's going on in development. Tenax Training Grounds by Victor Tenax Jensen's Range is a fine place to get familiar with your loadout, but what if you want to go a little more in-depth with your training? Enter Victor Tenax and their Tenax Training Grounds Basrah. Featuring an assortment of weapons, vehicles, and training spaces, it's one heck of a place to run some advanced drills with your squad. As you may have guessed, it, too, has a Steam Workshop page. Ones to Watch French Foreign Legion by Squad Mod France Oft-featured in The Wrench, Squad Mod France has undertaken the monumental task of developing an entire faction. Their latest update should give you a taste of the dedication and skill that their team is putting into their mod! Be sure to check out their most recent progress update, which includes an interview with 3D Artist Anastasia. Squad BR by Squad BR Team Seeing some ground between the Fortnites and PUBGs of the world, Wasti, StrangeZak, and Bruno have joined forces to work on Squad Battle Royale. Intended as a way to help develop and test modding, the team is making swift progress (see a preview of the map below!) and would love to have you along for the ride. If you'd like to know more about Squad BR, check out April's Wrench, or join their Discord server. Gulf of Oman by FAR.STAN Coming out just in time for this month's Wrench is FriendlyNikolai's astonishingly beautiful video of the Gulf of Oman map by FAR.STAN. Featuring a first look at a US aircraft carrier, you're going to want to check out the video ASAP: Still in alpha testing, you can find and follow it on the Steam Workshop page. Beautiful work, folks! Finkarus by LoRDHitMan Still not quite there for A11 but LoRDHitMan is working heavily on an update for his map Finkarus. Featuring a lot of new buildings and props he is currently also working on an optimisation pass for it to make sure you’ll have the right amount of frames for optimal viewing. Khamisiyah Remastered by Wheezy Wheezy is working on some more nostalgia, this time for Project Reality veterans in the form of a remastered version of Khamisiyah, which was made by AFSoccer. It’s built from the ground up and is heavily based around armoured warfare. So in the future this map will play out great, but we can’t wait to try it out soon. No matter if you're just checking out Squad for the free weekend, or are with us for the long haul, there's sure to be something that grabs your attention. As always, we want to thank the modding community for putting in their hard work and dedication. You never cease to amaze us. If you want to be a part of it next month, you can get into it right away by using this form and submit your work!
