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, I have been enjoying Squad for a long time now, but ever since I first started playing, my textures (mainly objects and terrain at a certain distance like trees, rocks, poppy- and corn fields and buildings) look low-res (more or less like cardboard cut-outs). At close quarters i hardly notice it, but when in a firefight with big distances between me and the enemy it hurts my eyes. I have already tried a lot to fix the textures (Like messing about with the in-game graphic settings, nvidea controlpanel and the gameusersettings.ini file, reinstalling the game and deleting all usercached data, overclocking and reshade) but nothing really worked. Other people who experienced the same kind of texture problems were told to use supersampling, but when i set super sampling to 1.5 (which is the highest my pc can handle at ~40fps) I barely notice any difference. Also note that I don't have a problem with my fps which will fluctuate between 60 and 72 (with vsync enabled to get rid of stuttering) on epic without supersampling and I've seen multiple videos from people with more or less identical specs (and some worse than mine) where as their textures look crisp and detailed. My specs are: Windows 8.1 64-bit Intel Core i7 4770 @ 3.40GHz clocked to 3.9 with turbo mode ASUS Nvidea Geforce GTX 770 2GB 16,0GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 1600Mhz ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. B85M-G (SOCKET 1150) 232GB Samsung SSD 840 Series (Squad is installed on the SSD) 1863GB Seagate ST2000DM001-1CH164 Got 2 monitors but Squad is running on my iiyama PLG2773HS 1920x1080 144hz I have made some screenshots if there is anyone who wants to take a look at them, if more are needed please say so: Anyway, I really hope someone can help me out here and sorry for the long post and my English. Kind regards, Theballie
Hey guys. From the first time I installed the game, I'm having issues with the graphics. First of all, I have 2x GTX 770 4GB but for Squad I'm using Single GPU Profile (SLI seems to be causing problems). However, regardless of what graphic settings I use, the foliage (trees, flowers etc) seems very "textury" and ugly. Even if I set foliage to Epic along with 1.5 supersampling, the improvement is so minor that I can't even notice any difference at all. Is that normal? I have attached 2 in-game screenshots along with my settings. Thanks in advance.
I would really appreciate some finishing help on my tall 3D apartment building now, trying to get the stairs to the roof fixed (after that I'll try to add textures, 3d objects in rooms etc.). Almost all apartments complete, should pretty much only be few doors and windows missing (I can finish all windows/doors, but if you want to do it, please make it precise, compare it to the existing heights/values of doors/windows. Several of the values of the house are even after german industry standards lol I looked up some values on internet) Here you can access it via TinkerCAD (I made a private backup ofc) or you can download the .OBJ file here: https://ufile.io/22e301 TinkerCAD direct access here (free autodesk account required): https://www.tinkercad.com/things/ceERKh2TKIG-house-3-rich-basement-stairs/editv2?sharecode=4DLfWKNtrSbXf9rV-Ds0j7bQjSEemZBY_4TgGVNolw0= click here for free 3D view, walls made invisible for view (Sketchfab): -> -> -> -> -> -> https://skfb.ly/66oDY <- <- <- <- <- <- And ofc. we will share credits for this asset (I have an idea for an easteregg in the texture ) Setup will probably be like "as war started, all citizens abandoned the house and only left few things in it" (big furniture), also I'd say 5-10 apartments totally empty, like they hadn't found tenants yet. Each aparment will have small bathroom, small kitchen and bedroom (just like my old apartment had lol). WIP screenshot (not latest):
OXOTHNK posted a topic in ArchiveWhen I try to export my final Base_color texture, it exports not correctly, but in viewport all is ok. I have tried to use any formats(png, targa), but it didn't help. Pls help me to fix it.
Hey guys, ive got a problem with horrible and strong flickering on my textures in the game, especially in maps with bright sunlight! In darker maps or maps without sunlight, my whole picutre looks smooth,flawless, kinda like CSGO. Maybe a little bit aliasing and flickering of textures, which is totally normal. But when the sun starts to reflect on those objects, its like all my trees and grasses starting to dance with each other. I cant even see a difference between an enemy who is moving and those flicker parties in distance - no chance to spot...feeling like a big disadvantage, especially in bright and big maps. For example Chora,Kokan or Yehorivka in the sunny version. I cant spot anything or anyone with this issue. What is more, when i stand still, its still looks awful but nothing moves - no flickering at all. When i start moving or zooming ("breathing") , the flicker party begins. I searched and tested and tweaked for more than 20 hours by now and just cant get it right...i tried EVERY possible ingame setting, i tried 90% of nvidia control panel /inspector tweaking tips, i read hundreds of threads of people who have the same problem with flickering textures in a bunch of different games. Actually, its a common problem, but i never noticed it that hard like in squad. Somehow, i feel like my graphic card cant get AA to work right in Squad....its weird. No AA ist horrible flickering, FXAA, FXAA+TXAA and SMAA too. Smaa is the best of them, but still hard to play. JUST TXAA "freezes" all my textures, so my picture is totally smooth and chill but horrible blurry tho. My nvidia AA`s didint work either. Anistropic filtering, optimization, high quality filtering,max performance mode, single display...all of that didnt solve my problem. I even tried sweetfx, but the presets looked anything but "realistic" in my opinion and it was still flickering, just in a sharper and brighter way I cant downsample/upscale my resolution that much, because otherwise i loose my stable 50-70 FPS ingame. So, higher resolution cant do it for me. All i can afford (fps-wise) is 1.25 super sampling ingame. I really dont know what is going on. I watched tons of squad videos (even tho i know they are compromised) and 95% of them had a WAY smoother, "kinda flicker/Shimmer-free" picture - even in movements and in sunny maps. I hope you guys can help me Sorry, gotta improve my english as good as my squad graphics didnt wrote that much in a long as time, hope you guys can still understand my problem. My rig: i7 4790k 4,4 ghz evga gtx 980 4gb Vram with the newest driver (tried 3 or 4 different drivers) -> runs ingame with 1394 mhz Clock and about 2000-2600 vram, under 70° C 8 GB ram DDR3 1600 mhz Seagate HDD Barracuda (games) SSD (Windows) 850 be quiet psu ( i guess?) win 10 BenQ GL 2450 - 1080P Display 60 HZ
Hello everyone ! Let me first of all introduce myself, I am Romain, 28yo CG Supervisor for video game cinematics. I have recently worked on project like Halo 5, Grey Goo, Call of Duty ect... I am also member and founder of the ArmA section in the multigaming community =BoB= aka BreizhoO, I am pretty sure I have played with some of you guys on Squad or any other simulation game out there. I am new in the video game industry though, always worked with pre rendered cut scenes, and I have just started in the modelisation of some WWII era assets. Endgame being integrated those as a mod in Squad with Unreal Engine 4. Those assets are started : ( I will get some WIP renders later this week ) Opel Blitz - 80% KubelWagen - 70% Stielhandgranate - 100% Pak 38 - 90% STG 44 - 40% The list is quite long, and for now I am only working on this on my spare time. I will first focus on the firearm themselves, and then, when the SDK gets released, I will get the characters and vehicle up and running? I hope that we will be able to get the original rig, and reuse the game animation. I am also negotiating with the Milirary History Museum of Budapest to get my hand on some Axis and Allies outfit and gears and then 3D Scan them with my company hardware system to get ultra hight quality model, almost never seen in an Indie game before. Now, to get a bit more into details and to introduce the mod : It will be a partial game conversion using some existing asset and animation. Project name is : 1944 : La voie de la liberté. This is the road that goes from Utah Beach in Normandy to Bastogne in the East of France. Crossing Britanny, and Center of France to finish into those cold Ardennes valleys. Battlefield will be various, from the Libération of Sainte-Mère-Eglise, Carentan, Rennes, Anger, Le Mans, Verdun, Bastogne ect... The main idea is to develop a war frontline, with no compromise, extreme simulation, so extreme that gameplay would be left behind on some aspect. Difficulty and Inertia will be the keywords. No quick reload, if it takes 20 seconds for the crew to get in the Panzer 38 (t) then, 20 seconds it will take. MG Gunner will have less stamina than a simple rifleman, or according to his load. Emphasize ambush and transport more than Gun & Run Here are a few features we would like to showcase, via Scripting or Blueprints in UE 4 : - Drink & Stamina ( Drink coefficient is directly connected to the speed of Stamina regeneration. ) - Towing of Canon and light Artillery. - Troop transport, Opel Blitz, Half track, Light carrier ect.. - Light armored vehicles, M5 Stuart, Panzer 38 t. No Heavy Unit - Squad Based, FOB, rallypoint ( Squad ) - Massive non linear map based on actual location - Construction and Fortification ( Squad ) - Gear modification ( Tree branch for canon camouflage, sandbags ect... Men of War like ) - HQ and High Command ( Squad ) - Axis and Allies, Western Front conflict. - Inventory, micro gestion, ammo and drink canteen ( Men of War like ) - Vehicles Cargo ( ArmA like ) - Night and Day cycle ( If technically possible ) - Autobipod ( Red Orchestra like ) Everything announced is subject to changes, but the main idea is here. We will start with the basic features first, in order to get a prototype released no too long down the road. On the reference side, here are some and what we like from them : - Invasion 44 & Iron Front (mod ArmA) ''Speed pace and tactics'' - Resistance & Liberation ( mod Half Life ) ''Game overall concept and belt inventory'' - Men of War series ''Micro gestion and inventory'' - BattlegroundEurope WWII OL ''Game concept and scale and learning curve'' - Red Orchestra & Darkest Hour ''Game concept, and weapon behaviour and impact + bipod system'' - Project Reality ''Team based'' As you can imagine, this is a gigantic task that is in front of us. This is also why I offer to any volunteers to step up, we need 3D Artists, Texture Artists, Progammers, Level designer and Sound specialist. There is absolutely no obligation what so ever in therm of time to invest, if you just feel like modeling one gun and then leave, it is all good with us. If you feel like this is a project you like and want more responsability, then that is also totally fine. Everything is to be done, so if you like it, text me, and we will find you a task suited to your skills. If you have a showreel, or example of past work, please attach them to the discussion. Pipeline is as follow : 3D Modeling : 3dsmax or else for High & low poly. (We need high and low poly modelers, I can provide High meshes that just need retopo and UV's) Texturing : PBR Shader Substance Painter & Designer Photoshop Rigging : 3dsmax Game Engine: Epic Unreal Engine 4 I also have a possibility to purchase some good models on Turbosquid or CG Trader, I will activate a transparent paypal microdonation system to help. Everything will help, up to what you can and want to give, 100% of it will be used in the game purpose. This totally optionnal and is basically like a kickstarter to help us shorten some corners. Thanks for your support. =BoB=BreihzoO
