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.

Hey squaddies, What a weekend, eh? Hopefully, you had a chance to join us for the StackUp Call to Arms 2019! If you didn’t, be sure to check out the SquadZ and Squad Ops segments to see what modding can really do. =) We’re also keeping the donation drive active for a while, should you find yourself with a little bit of spare dosh for the holidays. A big shout out to the modding community that helped make it happen! 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. AL BASRAH NIGHT (SAM TRAINING AND EVENTS) BY NINJA WITH KATANA There’s certainly been a lot of stir lately about night maps and, rightfully so. Who DOESN’T want to see their favorite maps at night? Enter (silently): Ninja With Katana. While the big news here may be Al Basrah at night, there’s no shortage of reasons to check out the mod package from the [SAM] Clan. They’ve got a training map in there as well! Picking up the mod and familiarizing yourself with night time ops may help you get a leg up in their Al Basrah Ambush event. FINNISH DEFENCE FORCES BY FDFMOD TEAM As the nights grow long and cold, a true modder knows that you can ALWAYS make your CPU a little harder to fix both problems! The FDFMod Team is buckling down to make it through the winter by kicking out a brand new update. This month, they’re showing off both new vehicle and character models. Some fresh new paint has been applied to the XA-185 and the Defender, with the Sisu “Eemeli” truck not far behind as it approaches the end of the high-poly modeling phase. Last, but not least, their custom character models are steadily marching toward the finish line themselves. AUSTRALIAN FACTION BY AUSSIE MOD TEAM Our monthly tour of the globe brings us back to another one of our favorite locations (and mod teams): Australia! While the Finnish team may be getting ready to hibernate through a long winter, we can see the Aussie Mod Team is still heating things up Downunder. As you can see from the latest screenshots, their character art is nearing completion. If you squint and get close enough to the monitor, you can almost see the individual strands of dingo hair. Wow! A bunch of lads with such stunning good looks are going to need an equally stunning ride to match and, once more, Australian hospitality provides. Check out their latest ASLAV25 shot! Last, but not least, they’ve left us with a video of their map, Operation Anaconda. If you’d like to help the Aussie Mod team, or just offer some feedback, be sure to join their Discord server for upcoming testing opportunities! ROAD FROM MUTTRAH BY CRIPION101 With eyes on the newly-released helicopters, Cripion101 turned their focus on to something that should be music to the ears of any PR veteran: The Road to Muttrah. The new version aims to expand on the notably solid base of the original PR map to bring it up to a full 8×8 km battlefield based on maps of Muscat. The expansion allows more space for tanks by including surrounding deserts, mountains, and nearby towns. Squads should be prepared to shift gears from long-range combat to more intimate fighting as they near the core of Muttrah. Cripion101 hopes to add an emphasis on infantry, transport, and smaller vehicles which should require teams to make expert use of technical, MATVs, and, of course, those beautiful choppers to succeed. FRENCH FOREIGN LEGION BY FFLMOD TEAM The French Foreign Legion Mod team is back this month! We’re always happy to see them, especially when they come bearing screenshots. Above is Xander’s take on a France-based map. You’ll be treated to freshly harvested fields that have been littered with trenches. The French Foreign Legion is dug in and ready for combat. No trench-ready unit would be complete without some heavy machine-gunning, so the FFL folks have also included a work-in-progress shot of their ANF1 by Drkoliche. It will be part of the Heavy Machine Gunner role, as well as being found atop the VBL. It should be nice and deadly! ADAWIA PARK BY JOHAN SUNDKVIST Recently the host of a Fused Legions fragfest event, Adawia Park is getting put through the paces and coming out all the better for it! We’re excited to hear what Johan Svundkist has to say about their wonderful creation: Featuring a dense urban area inspired by a real Syrian Park, Adawia aims to bring a hint of verticality to an already dangerous battlefield. The added threat of danger from any angle should definitely keep squaddies on their toes and looking for trouble. Both Militia and Insurgent teams will need to make liberal use of rooftops and underground shelters to navigate their way to a win. Be sure to pick your path wisely and cover your squadmates: the enemy could be lurking anywhere. The next steps include enlarging the map to include two new main bases outside the town, with an aim to reduce camping. A labyrinthine network of sewers has also been added to the city to allow flanking — assuming you can find your way to the objective! One last change to be aware of: the rally point radius has been lowered from 50 meters to 14 meters, making sure you’ll have some up close and personal encounters. GULF OF FINLAND BY HAWKEN And we’re back to Finland! But you’ll find no complaints from us, especially when it comes to updates from Wrench-favorite Hawken. Although Gulf of Finland was recently released, Hawken wasn’t quite happy with how things had shaped up. Now we’re getting a complete rework of the terrain to add more detail and make everything a bigger. (And better, obviously.) The update will bring over 2 kilometers of tunnels, more detail to every island, and improvements to both the visuals and gameplay. We’re definitely excited to see Gulf evolve as more and more people experience it! BILL NYE’S LABORATORY BY BILL NYE Squad’s very own mad scientist, Bill Nye, is graciously opening up the lab to share some of those secret goodies. The Lab sets out to answer the question, “Much much does x do? Where do I find y? Can I taste it?” The last answer is always no, but bless your heart for trying. How does Chez Nye set itself apart? The Lab will be similar to Jensen’s Range with much more information, more accessible than the SDK. There are also handy utilities like being able to clear vehicle wrecks to help alleviate logging into a field of burning wrecks, as well as more tutorials and gizmos to come. IRON DAWN BY SPECTR_ETERNAL SPECTR_Eternal’s diligent work on Iron Dawn continues apace, with previously teased points of interest becoming much more fleshed out. In the middle of town, a park stands frozen in mid-construction as war has ripped through the area. Further on, a battered city block is a testament to the brutality of recent artillery strikes. Spread across the biggest towns of Iron Dawn, you’ll find monuments to the war heroes, built just before the outbreak of renewed conflict. Just be sure to tell your newbies not to call out the shiny boiz building a pond FOB. He notes, in closing, that there are some fresh Easter Eggs scattered about for the sharp-eyed squaddie. RAMIEL BY NOXXID3 Originally a Project Reality map by OkitaMakato, Noxxid3 was overjoyed to learn he’d have a shot at remaking it for Squad. Always one of his favorite maps, he’s set to work on the city, which seems to be increasing more and more with each day. New buildings, possibly new areas, Ramiel’s development is going well. (Though he hasn’t forgotten about Black Gold, of course.) Noxxid is also creating new soundtracks for each map. He’s also switched to Mutaha’s materials recently and finds it a most satisfactory experience. Can’t wait to see what’s next! BUNDESWEHR MOD BY [DSK] LIEUTENATK Sweet! We’ve got a progress update from the Bundeswehr team courtesy of[DSK] LieutenatK! Fulda Gap, their current mapping focus, is coming along very nicely. The team is currently adding a LOT of new Central-European style homes and props to the SDK, maybe of which are based directly on their real-life counterparts from the Fulda region. The BW team is also proud to present their first freshly modeled vehicle: the Hans 5T GL Logi (complete with tarp) and open-top transport, featuring work-in-progress German camo. Looking great, folks! If you’d like to learn more, or get involved, be sure to join their Discord server. SIGN-OFF Always love a globe-trotting Wrench, whether it be the factions or the teams themselves! We dare say there’s some of the best this month! What do you think? Would you like to see your mod featured in The Wrench? Let us know by submitting it here! SQUAD MODDING HUB MANAGEMENT TEAM OUT.
Hi Squaddies, As we move into December, the team is now in a full bug-fixing and polish mode, where all the new major features have been locked down. The team is now dedicated to fixing as many outstanding bugs as possible before entering large scale community play-testing. Please give us your strength during this time! In return, we'd like to give you a preview of what the following major patch will contain. As always, these features are still in development and may vary in their final form. Stick with us for more development updates! Upcoming Version Feature Preview Coming in the next major version (Alpha v10), Squad gameplay as you know it will change dramatically. The Animation System overhaul may not sound like it changes much aside from aesthetics, but it is going to revolutionize how the game will be played. On top of that, several other changes to gameplay will mix things up quite a bit. Infantry Movement Changes Transitioning time from sprinting to getting your weapon up and aiming down the sights has been slightly increased from the previous value. The effect of this is that sprinting, as in real life, actually puts you in a vulnerable position. Constant running and gunning will put you at a disadvantage compared to a soldier who is crouching and already steadily aiming down sights. We're seeing that more careful movement is needed on the personal level, and more tactical movement is required as a team: bounding overwatch will become a much more important thing. (Bounding Overwatch: Covering teammates while they move up, then having them cover you while you move up.) Transitioning from standing to prone will no longer be instant, and you don't keep your sights on the target during it. This means that prone diving, previously a fairly common occurrence to instantly get dead-accurate hits, will be GONE. Bwahaha! Crouch Sprinting is also added to the game, meaning that you will be able to traverse distances with a lower profile, albeit at a slower pace than you would if you were standing up fully exposed. Vaulting and Climbing Vaulting will allow you to more quickly jump over small walls. Climbing will allow you to get over higher walls than was previously possible as infantry. This changes the playing field, as a simple rifleman's sandbag may be enough to scale a wall previously only accessible with a ladder. Another trick would be to use a vehicle as a booster which would allow you to climb over higher obstacles. Freelook Freelook will allow you to look around while doing any action while in infantry. This should slightly increase situational awareness while moving and reloading. Remember to watch your back! Weapons Handling Changes Weapon handling will change to feel more fluent and realistic, with a lot more polish in the way it moves and should feel much more immersive. Note that this will be the first iteration of this system and the precise sway/recoil/transition numbers will still be tweaked, and that the exact values we release with may not be the same as those shown here. However, the changes seen will still be in this direction. We will be slightly increasing sway effects when standing or after sprinting. This will put more emphasis on your posture and stamina, as well as taking your time to take your shots. This will benefit players who move carefully and deliberately. Good position and stance will give a more tangible advantage. Weapon Collision The length of your weapon also now plays a factor in how you maneuver through tight spaces and fire from cover. When you are too close to an obstacle or a surface, your weapon will be forcibly lowered and you will be prevented from firing and aiming down your sights. This naturally depends on the weapon in question, so bringing a long marksman rifle into small CQB spaces will be ill advised, whereas pistols will have a natural advantage in tight situations. Sights and Optics Scoped weapons will have reduced peripheral vision. This will reduce their spotting advantage at distance. The reticles also have been designed to allow for them to be used to gauge the fall of your shot. Ironsight weapons will have a very slight permanent zoom increase when aiming down the sights to increase the ability to effectively return fire against scoped opponents. Adjustable Sights All infantry weapons (barring those with fixed sights) will have the ability for you to adjust their sights depending on the range of your target. This is especially useful for grenade launchers and dumb-fire rocket launchers as they rely heavily on the shooter accounting for the ballistic trajectory to score a first shot hit. Being able to adjust your sights to compensate for the distance to target will greatly improve the chances of a first shot hit. This feature is also included in all small arms as well, ranging from rifles to machine guns, even on the PPSh-41 submachine gun. Don't forget to hit the range to brush up on your skills, squaddies. New Role: Machine Gunner A new role we have added is the Machine Gunner. A team-wide limited role, the Machine Gunner is packing a larger General Purpose Machine Gun (GPMG). Compared to the Automatic Rifleman's LMG, the Machine Gunner's GPMG is typically a larger caliber weapon capable of putting down suppressive fire out to much longer distances and can penetrate more surfaces with greater reliability. Due to the size and weight of the GPMG, it is generally unsuitable for firing either on the move or in CQB situations. We will be introducing the M240B and the PKM with this new role. Bipods Bipods will allow Light Machine Guns (LMGs) and General Purpose Machine Guns (GPMGs) to set up on positions and put down a large volume of fire with terrifying accuracy. The Automatic Rifleman and Machine Gunner roles intention were to provide suppression. In reality, they were often quickly picked off by Marksmen or Riflemen with optics, as they were limited in their ability to effectively return fire at range. With the introduction of bipods, from what we've seen so far, the machine gun is a force to be reckoned with. It is VERY deadly, even at range, when set up with a bipod. The changes to sway and prone diving (see above) give the automatic rifleman a much larger window to fire when after an enemy has been spotted, before taking return fire. The best way to deal with an Automatic Rifleman is to flank them, because they will have the power to simply make swiss cheese out of you if you try to attack from the front. Furthermore, each squad will have access to an extra Automatic Rifleman outside of the special kit restrictions, allowing a squad more freedom to pick other specialty kits as well. Changes to the Rush Meta After reviewing community and internal feedback, we have decided that we are unhappy with the "Rush the first enemy flags" AAS meta, as it is an unforgiving type of gameplay that fails to put emphasis on the gradual capping of flags and territory that AAS was designed around. To address this, non-capturable flags will no longer be blockable by the enemy. For example: if one soldier is in the capture zone of their team's first flag and nine enemies are in that cap zone as well trying to block it, the flag will still be captured. Once they find him and kill him, the flag will (obviously) stop capping. This should severely reduce the "Rush Flags" meta, and shift the focus more towards the linear progression of moving from flag area to flag area, as well as having a proper supply train with FOBs and logistics. Blocking a flag is technically still possible if you eliminate the entire attacking force, but it will require more resources to do and is more likely to fail. Vehicle Changes Entering or exiting vehicles and switching seats inside vehicles is no longer instant. The duration depends on the vehicle and the type of seat. This greatly reduces the effectiveness of soloing vehicles when a vehicle is flanked or ambushed. Either it will not be able to drive away or it won't be able to return fire instantly. Bring a friend! Several vehicles will have access to secondary weapons and different ammunition types. For example, the Russian BTR-82A will have access to 30mm High Explosive (HE) ammunition which deal explosive damage suitable for dealing with infantry, in addition to its normal 30mm Armor Piercing (AP) rounds. BTR and BRDM variants also have access to a secondary coaxial machinegun. Some vehicles also have access to smoke launchers, providing a way to either conceal their movements or aid infantry by providing a large smokescreen. Logistics Changes One change that we're implementing to Logistics is for the Logistics carrier to load on varying amounts of either construction or ammunition points. For example, an Ural supply truck has 2000 points worth of space to load either construction or ammunition. If a FOB in the front is running mortars or simply just needs more ammo, the truck can run a full load of ammo rather than wasting half of that space to haul unneeded construction materials. Unsecured oversized loads will be issued a moving citation. The process of loading and unloading is now treated like a weapon on a vehicle, in that Construction and Ammo occupy different inventory slots, and one button (Default: Left Mouse Button) will unload, and another (Default: Right Mouse Button) will load supplies onto the vehicle. Round Start Staging Timer Instead of a 3-minute pre-match spawn timer, there will be a 3-minute staging period before matches. During this time, you can spawn in at your team's Main Base, organize your squads, roles, get to your vehicles, and prepare to move out. However, you are unable to leave the Main Base area until the timer has fully elapsed. To prevent griefing issues, you cannot fire your weapons during the staging period. We're supremely grateful for the community we have and we absolutely do not want to disappoint, despite taking us this long to get our next major release together. Please stay tuned for further updates as our team is on overdrive in hammering out the bugs. Offworld Out.
Hi Squaddies, Welcome to the November edition of The Wrench! We hope you've been keeping yourself busy during this month as much as the modders have. With the integration of the Steam Workshop last month, there have been several impressive new developments since we last checked in. The beginning of a new weekly modding showcase event going by the name of Squad Modding Weekly Roundup has been bringing the community together. This event aims to provide the community with a chance to experience various mods as one and most of all, showcase what's on offer in the Squad Steam Workshop. 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. Challenger 2 WIP by |FA| Red Six Red Six has been hard at work making the high poly version of the British main battle tank, the Challenger 2 (FV4034). The next couple of steps towards bringing this tank into the Squad SDK is to prepare the game-ready mesh (also known as the low poly mesh), UV unwrap it, bake various texture maps, and, finally, texture it. We're sure you will all agree that this high poly model looks great! Brilliant work, Red Six! Hungarian Defence Forces by Gurály "EDM" Ádám EDM has been working on creating a new faction - the Hungarian Defence Forces. This faction uses a smart combination of existing assets in the form of retextures and renaming for authenticity. Here are a few words from the man himself: Rebel Faction by Stom Stom has also been working on a new faction, and this one is aimed at creating flexible forces for others to play as on a wide variety of maps. Heres what he has to say about his work which includes various detailed retextures of Militia forces and additional vehicle assets: Donbass Regional Airport by [2.Fjg] West Based on several major battles of the various eastern European separatist situations, this map features government and militia forces fighting for control of a large 3-floor airport terminal and surrounding industrial areas. The map will have a mix of close range fighting within large structures and thick woodland as well as long distance engagements when fighting for the tarmac and major roadways. [2.FJg] West has been progressing well on this map, and we can all imagine the intense battles that will take place once it's released! Remington 870 Marine Special by Chap Perhaps one of the most iconic and beloved weapons, the Remington 870 Marine Special is being carefully brought to life by Chap. His hard work definitely showcases the French Faction Mod team puts into everything they do. Speaking of which, we can't wait to see what comes in their next update! Dormant Volcano by LaughingJack A reimagining of a map from the game Joint Operations, LaughingJack brings us a tropical themed island with a small, skirmish-focused layout. LaughingJack says that he hopes to have some boats and amphibious APCs ready to use soon. While the map will be playable in a vanilla Squad, he also says that it will be part of a Joint Operations conversion mod that is in the works as well. More screenshots available here. Agrabah Dawn AAS by Marv Longtime modder Marv once again brings something interesting to the table, this time in the form of a dawn lighting layout for his new map, Agrabah. With an AAS in place and a hazy, dusty feel, this map sure does impress. One should expect a fierce battle at the map's prominent features a village situated at the top of a spire-like mountain, or grueling trench warfare to take the radio station, for example. Marv is expecting the map to be ready in late 2017 or early 2018. LCU-1627 Landing Craft by Virus.EXE Our Modding Hub native, Virus.EXE, has been hard at work collaborating with Legochiel to create this incredible prototype for landing craft in squad. Fully player controlled and able to transport vehicles to and from the beachfront, this project brings us one step closer to a shared dream of amphibious invasions. British Asset Pack by Baby_James Baby James has updated and released his British Asset Pack for all Squad modders to use. The pack includes an extensive number of props to use for all your British needs. (TARDIS not included. Sorry.) Free asset sharing is always a welcome sight to those of us in the modding community, and we hope that his work inspires more to do the same! Forest Air by SilentBlood This map by modder SilentBlood manages to pack down a great deal of scale into a 2x2km package. Designed with a high degree of attention given to game balance, SilentBlood created the map for tournaments and intends to give it a high amount of points-of-interest at three major levels of elevation. It's always a pleasure to see the elements of a map's design being thought out thoroughly. This map is planned for release on the 22nd of this month, with an infantry, an invasion, and a few AAS layers to play with. Canadian Armed Forces Air by Capone Capone has been working on creating the Canadian Armed Forces. His first step is making the soldier characters and he says that they are aiming to add the infantry component of the Canadian Armed Forces to Squad. Squad Modding Hub Management Team Out.
