      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. Vault/climb penalties The vaulting system in v10 alpha was great! However, I'm suggesting that some of the higher vaulting and climbing be accompanied with more penalties: make it slower and make it drain stamina. Parkour ninjas was a thing in the alpha and even though it was fun I don't like it for gameplay and realism. I like the opportunity vaulting brings, it allows for sneaky tactics etc, but I rather see that a squad blocked by barbed wire in an alley way (between a house and a fence) dig those wires away instead of jumping up on the fence, walking like cats on it and then jumping back down. There should be more penalties to high vaulting and climbing so that the decision of choosing that path isn't always the obvious choice. The weight of military gear should be more accounted for. I think this guy put it quite good on Reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/joinsquad/comments/7lnw0o/the_new_vaulting_mechanics_are_great/ Fall damage Also, I think many people don't appreciate the difference to fall damage when carrying gear (not even alot of gear) as compared to being free of gear. During conscription we were even adviced not to jump from our APCs because of the 1m fall, which could result in damage to feet and knee joints in the long run. In the v10 alpha, we could jump from roof tops and high walls without penalties that just didn't seem realistic; maybe we could get to climb down instead?
  2. I know it's in the works, but please put vaulting and mantling in the game as soon as possible. Getting around walls is getting extrememly frustrating for me. God, I need vaulting and mantling in this game. Wald
  3. Upcoming Features or Not?

    Hi guys, i'm new on Squad. I really like the game and i'm now eager to see what improvements will come. I already read some Montly Recaps and some topics to get some idea what will come next. But still i have some questions for quick catch up. So i listed my questions/suggestions to get some more information from you and developers. What's your performance goal? Since i see some features will not be implemented (ie. destructible buildings) because of performance issues, how much performance improvement should we expect when the game has finished? Is it possible to achieve %80-100 fps increase when the game has done? I think performance is the most important factor for playerbase and playerbase is important factor for Online Multiplayer games. Will you remove jumping? When the vaulting implemented will you guys remove jumping, because i think its not realistic at all. What about climb over fences and walls? Permanent Bullet Decals? I see bullet decals disappears after some shots, are those affects performance too much, is it possible to make them permanent? Destructible environment? I read you have no plan for destructible buildings yet. But how about other things like tress, fences, walls? Will there be explosion craters? Asymmetric warfare? Since factions are asymmetric?!?!, will there be more diversity between factions? Play style is almost same for all factions atm. I think there should be different tactics for different factions. Like will there be booby traps or tunnel network system for militias/insurgents since we know USA and Russia gets Helicopters for sure. Thats all for now, keep up the good work...
  4. First of all, I'm amazed at all the new animations! Great to see vaulting as well! However, in the current animation it seems to be "too nice" on the player; shouldn't the penalty be greater, i.e. that your weapon is lowered more? There's no demonstration of vaulting on higher walls/structures, is this planned for the future? I'd like to see some vaulting possibilities where you simply tuck your weapon aside, bring up both of your hands, etc. EDIT (added this below): "I noticed another detail that adds to my concern: the vaulting is a lil unrealistic as it's like the player model "floats" over the obstacle, one would expect the camera/your view to bump somewhat (just a lil touch)."
  5. Greatings community, Here are some ideas that I was discussing with some friends while playing the game regarding the current state that its in. I know everything is subject to change and that the devs are adding more and more functions in the game while we move on. I'd love to see some feedback and perhaps some discussions regarding this topic. The main points are: adding an adrenaline like dimension in the game for vaulting, stamina, rushing/sprinting, drawing weapons for quicker, more realistic immersion ! Vaulting: We all know that there is no vaulting in the game right now and i've read some topics that this will most likely be implemented as the game development moves on.To jump over a 50cm wall we have to press jump and duck to cross like back in cs1.6. This usually fails because your stamina is depleted or on a low point due to crossing a field. Imagine a situation where you get shot at in real life, and you have to make it over a wall or ledge or w.e. You'd jump over that mofo and even risk breaking something to prevent getting killed. Closing in on my point now; the devs should add some sorcery in to make sure once you get shot at, you gain some kind of adrenaline and the stamina isnt affected while you jump/duck over a object for cover. Ideas:vaulting does not affect staminavaulting affects stamina, but lower the penalty from 33% or 25%, whatever its at right now to something more acceptable like 5%or vaulting affects stamina while not suppresed/being shot at but it does not affect stamina once you are being shot at. In this version, suppression adds adrenaline and your soldier will make sure to get to safety like in real life. This option would be the most realistic imho. You could go even further in to immersion and add a legs damage penalty by shot wounds or falling from height wich slows the vaulting animation by 50%. But we are getting to deep now, suppresion and adrenaline would be a nice implementation in further gamesthe last option could be an option if vaulting is not added in the game, here you would gain the adrenaline mode once you are being shot at and stamina is not affected by jumping. This would however break the game once you snipe / engage from a distance and opfor could just get unlimited jumping. Making it to hard to hit the enemy.All in all, vaulting and adrenaline would be nice.Running/sprinting for life: Drop the current run / sprint mode as it is right now and add the folowing:normal 'run' (movement by arrow keys)running (movement by arrow keys + shift*) *=default keybindingsI'd love to see the some extra rush mode during a run where you could gain an extra 10/15% sprint speed. I honestly think this would add another dimension in chasing/closing in on objectives to make sure you arrive where your headed towards alive, not dead or wounded. Mix classes up a little and modify the run/sprint speed for every role. An rpg eqquiped with 4 rockets would definitely add loads of weight and should prolly run slower then a normal soldier. Im not sure if this is already ingame. I have not seen any differences in running with classes. Changing weapons: This one should be a dead give-away and probably is suggested many times since the weapon change animations are ruining the whole game. Other games implement a fast animation to secondaries but why not set a new standard, and let other industries follow our example. Instead of having a four second animation from RPGs to your m4/ak/any other weapon. Add the folowing; yes, adrenaline, once again, since this would improve the flow and immersion alot. Once being shot at, your switching/animation greatly increases by as much as something like 50%. Set a difference between switching from RPGs to rifle, this should take longer since an RPG is big as f#ck. However switching from your rifle to pistol could be faster!my second idea would be totally awesome. See to it that theres an option to drop a weapon by pressing some button like 2 times while you are in an animation. When switching from your rpg to pistol in a firefight, you'd drop that fkin bazooka and get to your makarov as QUICK as possible.Third idea is that drawing pistols should be increased if spec ops roles are introduced in the future. Trained special forces could have the ability since they are trained to do something fast. Thats about it for now guys. Im sorry if i mentioned some ideas which might be posted before me, if so, please copy the link and ill delete the idea from my post in an edit. Feedback and support (if you like it). Disclaimer: Sorry for bad Engiesh, it are my the second language!
