      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) 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.   Section II: Forum Signatures   §1 Signature Dimensions
      To avoid clutter, please make sure your signature (if you choose to have one) does not exceed the following size limit: 350x150 pixels. Your signature may consist of images, user bars and text elements, as long as the total size does not exceed 550 x 200 pixels. A small tolerance will be given, but any signature larger than the limit may at any time be deleted without prior warning. If you are not sure whether your signature is acceptable, please PM a moderator.   §2 Signature Content
      All rules of section 1 fully apply to your signature. We will remove signatures or parts of signatures without notice if they violate the forum rules, and infractions may be given.   §3 Animated Signatures
      Please refrain from using animated .gifs as signatures, they distract and clutter the forum.   Section III: 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. I know this has been discussed in other threads. After looking through several forums and searching repeatedly I couldn't find an established thread on the subject. Perhaps we don't need so many similar forums???? Anyway, as a bunch of people have noted, the sight picture when ADS is wrong. No one who expects to hit their target holds a weapon out at arms length. Scopes & sights are supposed to ASSIST aiming not make it harder. Right now, while some people have amazing aim that defies my understanding, the majority of us find a target and try to aim but end up shooting in their general direction. This does not match the tactical nature of the game. In fact it goes against everything else in the game. I hope this will be changed, and significantly. The sight picture when ADS in Squad, currently, looks nothing like any type of weapon handling I have done and I've fired a lot of different weapons.
  2. yeah it sounds stupid, but the other day i was in event on squad ops and some people accidently discharged the weapon before the game started. It would be cool if when you pressed some key, your character would engage the safety and would kind of lower his weapon like the image, you would also see it in first person. if you press the fire button you will disengage the safety and raise the weapon and it would take like a half a second. Better than the safety shovels http://images.akamai.steamusercontent.com/ugc/140004481106113970/5A8EA85F73D41A503CC0D5EE238C84DC4772D789/?interpolation=lanczos-none&output-format=jpeg&output-quality=95&fit=inside|1024:819&composite-to%3D*%2C*|1024%3A819&background-color=black
  3. Hey guys! I looked for this on the forums but didn't find it. In some other games, your weapon isnt stuck to the same position on the screen at all times, i think it would be great if this was a thing in squad, but its not like in the arma games, where your weapon is completely independent of the screen movement until it reaches a certain point. this video explains what i mean. When you look around both your screen and the weapon move but the weapon isnt stuck to the center and it wont reach the corners of the screen either.
  4. loving the new update, new guns and vehicles really made this game so much more awesome however i have noticed a little detail in the SKS reload animation, i think many other people are also made aware of this right now there are only 2 reload animations for the SKS, one of them is when you empty the magazine and you use up the entire stripper clip but when the magazine is not fully emptied, no matter how many bullets are left in the box magazine, the player will always push 5 bullets into the magazine no matter how many are left in the mag (I didn't really count but i think its 5??) Not really a big deal, don't think i really care if this never gets changed because the current reload animation is just beautiful but it'd be a nice, detailed touch if in the near future the devs can include this into the game keep up the good work guys
  5. What insurgent/militia weapon from Project Reality do you want to see in Squad? Note that I haven't included weapons already in development by OWI. If I missed a weapon you want, state it in the comments. I personally want to see the PKM, however the DP-28 and Vz. 61 are close seconds. The MAT-49 is also to die for... sorry, I have a thing for SMGs...
  6. I'm seeking clarification. Obviously, there are in Squad a number of weapons lacking in authenticity; the M1014 over the M590A1, the M9A1 over the M9, the RPK-74M over the PKP, to name a few. Their use has been heavily discussed. I have heard from a number of community members that these weapons are placeholders, which presumably means it's the intention of the devs to replace these weapons with more authentic ones at some point in development. However, I'm not really clear on all this, so I seek clarification for the following: 1. Is "placeholder" a term used for these weapons by the devs? 2. Is it the intention of the devs to replace these placeholder weapons with more authentic ones at some point in development, whether it's two months from now or two years from now? 3. Did the devs implement these weapons under the false impression that they were the authentic choice, or were they implemented under an assumption? I have not personally heard from the devs their intention to eventually replace all these placeholder weapons. I have heard, for example, Z-Trooper say something along the lines of "We won't bother" when asked about every using the M9 over the M9A1. I'm not pointing fingers at the devs nor anyone else, so do not assume otherwise. Thank you.
  7. Weapons: I think it would be amazing if squad had some sort of customization feature in the future. For American weapons, adding different sights to suit your play style, rail mounts such as green NV lasers so when nightvision becomes a thing you can see where teammates are aiming, rail flashlights (maybe in combination with the laser), different types of stocks to increase mobility and accuracy, different types of magazines such as magpul, forward grips, and maybe the option to add a suppressor. And for the other sides with AK's and what not, again adding sights to fit play style, option (for russians) to switch the standard support to a rail system and add all the American things i mentioned (A.K.A. Tactical AK), different stocks (folding, none, tactical, and standard), different magazines such as drums, and again the option for a suppressor.
  8. Amazing game, been loving it since day one. Couple of things though First off, when emptying an assault rifle, it be AR15 platform or AK platform, heck almost any existing gun platform, the bolt will lock in the back. Now when this happens the weapon makes a distinct metallic clinging sound, which i am deeply fond of because, it sounds cool, and it tells me to reload. This should be added soon, as i find myself too many times facing an enemy with empty mag and weapon. Worst thing is coming behind the enemy and hearing that clicking sound. Second, the M72 LAW which is issued to the anti tank role of US Army is a disposable weapon system, WHICH means that when you've fired it, you throw it away like a condom. For some reason the soldier im controlling is a total retard and choses to store the empty LAW on his back. So when engaging enemy with the LAW, BOOM, then switching to primary and emptying a mag into the abyss, and then switching back to LAW again, this fucking retard brings me the just fired, empty, disposable, condom, and ill have to tell him to reload. Lets fix this, make it a badass animation when throwing away the M72 like a baws. Keep up the good work devs ;) Oh and the sniper is too weak.
  9. Hello my english is not perfect so i will be fast on the details I love this game and this is so fun to play with a RP team but in my opinion something is missing. I used to love playing OP: Flashpoint and in Red River, the weapon was jammed randomly and this is something really cool. If this could be in Squad this can be fun, a jammed m249 to fix while spraying or something like this can be amazing ^^. Thanks for reading.
  10. Halo so i think you hear from the new Update of Arma 3? The name is EDEN. Why i say it on Squad? As you maybe know have eden a new Audio for Battles and a GREAT Incredible Realistic one too. And hes the first game who have this. This Sound its AMAZING and Squad NEED it for sure! Why its so amazing? When Bullets fly over you had you can hear it! Its like Pocorn, we all can this from Clips over War or maybe a soldier from Irak- Afghanistan! You can this knatern and knallen like Pocorn over you had that Zing: A video or too: Sounds are extremely Important for me! And i think im not alone... SO lets hear the new Arma EDEN update Battle sound: https://arma3.com/assets/audio/arma3_eden_top10_audio_sample.wav im very sure that we need this!!!! 1000% Thx
  11. Hi Team, please add M32 and GM-94 grande launcher.
  12. Hey. Couldn't find it on the forums. I noticed that sometimes weapon dissappear on player characters in game. They stand with hand looking like they have a gun but they don't :) I think it's small bug.
  13. Dale here, please read further.
  14. *DEVELOPERS MUST SEE* post You know when your gun goes trough the wall in the games, or when you aim really close to the wall and you feel retarded because you lost some kind of 3D perspective or whatever hahah. UE4 acctualy has solution for this. It would improve breaching, compound clearing, peeking trough windows etc. 10x. I dont really know how much work it takes for this, but I hope it will be implemented one day in Squad, it would be first game which did that. It is just awesome. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-xvvncRvVCI Sorry for bad English.
  15. So there are a few games out there that have a system in place which detect if any part of your weapon is touching a hard surface in the environment, and prevents you from pointing the weapon in those directions. I think this system, when implemented properly, is nice because it solves 2 problems in FPS games: 1.) It is no longer possible to accidentally reveal your position by letting your rifle's barrel clip through a concrete wall. 2.) Compact weapons gain a realistic advantage in confined spaces. If you were carrying a M240B through a narrow hallway, you'd find that the weapon is colliding all the time with the walls and floor, making it very very difficult to use in that environment. So if you want to have an easier time in the hallway, you'll need to use a smaller weapon like a M4A1. With this system in place, there would be a real and functional reason to choose a M4 carbine over a full size M16A4 rifle in a video game. So I wanted to ask if there are any plans to include this kind of feature in Squad?
  16. How do you feel, about having "Officially" acknowleged Skins, like Valve does it with CS:GO Skins? This could make a player more disguised, or popping out in certain Terrain. I think this would give the Community something to do, when they are getting boored of playing all the time, but stil want to give something to the game. PROS: - Camouflgage - Developers don't need to make them - Fun for users CONS: - Devs. have to implement that option - Work. If you want to see this in-game, lets do this and bump this Thread!
  17. I sort of expect all of these things to be mentioned once or twice maybe alot of times but this will be a personal brainstorm and i will constently update it with new feelings about the game and what id love to see in it or improve on as feedback wise and feature wise, To mention i am well aware that probably all of these ideas or brainstorms i write down wont be in the game or will have a low chance of coming to it so please dont try and say this or that about an idea like for example... "That would be stupid to have etc etc" Just note your opinion is aloud of course just dont be arrogant towards the ideas that are writen by myself... Alright so ill list the ideas i have below and enjoy just a reminder feel free to have your own OPINION about an idea thank you. P.S Aware that its currently only in ALPHA. #1 Bipods, Id love to be able to rest my lets say LMG/sniper onto a broken wall or covering area to overwatch and provide cover fire to your squad as to sitting there and having a bipod as an option and an alternative to sitting over a wall to provide said siturations also to reduce recoil and prevent other nasty things from happening in a close quarters situration. #2 Wall Mantling, Currently you just hop over a small sized broken wall but what if one wanted to go over the wall instead of walking down or up the road he could just jump right over into a better position or opening for easier engagements now this i would personaly love to see the animations for. #3 Flashbangs, Now this idea was handed over to me ingame with a couple of mates we were about to clear a compound going into the house/building and to end up flatterned beacuse the only other alternative = NADES didnt work out as well after the nades were thrown the moment we steped foot inside said structure we were laid upon, now if we had a flashbang i would surely see a better outcome to the onslaught which again i would love to see this happen.. ;) #4 Ability To Customize, At the moment you pick a class and spawn in with the default choice's id like to be able to choose my scope and or attachments for my weapon because right now if you want to play the role of a medic you are forced with an ironscope which im sure this will definitly be a thing in the future as an update but for now its lacking the ability of choice the game is still highly enjoyable but i for one would enjoy this upcoming or suggested feature. #5 Animations (TEAM), Okay heres just an idea that i love seeing in films and real life siturations if you are back to back with a wall and you have a teammate infront of you and you decide to push ahead or clear a building id love to see an animation of your character holding onto the teammates back or body armor as he pushes forward for me this would make me feel more powerful and immersive. #6 Cam Control, Okay heres one pulled out of ARMA as this feature is amazing instead of having to move your entire character to face a new direaction why not have the ARMA feature where you press and hold a key and only your HEAD would move with the mouse and holded key that why instead of having to get up and rotate it would make it easier and more immersive and it would end up giving a better game experiance to the players.. Id love to see this one :D Okay ladies and gents thats all i have so far i feel better getting it out there AND if an idea was and or has been said more then once i appologise thank you for reading and please dont forget to be open minded i wont bite anyone with an opinion just hope these things have been heard and or are already coming out! ENJOY! Sorry if my english is off! :P
  18. The teams are not bad but you should be able to have a better setup. Here is an idea how to balance the teams out. First of all the US Team must really have a Designated Marksman. A good weapon of choice would be the M39 EMR equipped with ACOG. Both teams should have only 1 Fighter class, for the US team the M4A1 equipped with a Reddot of course (as already provided in the game). This is where the Insurgent team falls short. I think to really balance the both teams the Insurgent Fighter Class and Insurgent Cell Leader Class should have an optic mounted on their AK-47. The Russian Kobra Red Dot would be the best choice. Yet still maintaining the AK-47 power vs M4A1 accuracy ratio, this is critical.
  19. Correct me if I'm wrong, but... The M1014 semi-automatic shotgun was adopted by the USMC, but not the Army, and as Squad features the Army it's unrealistic. The M590A1 is the weapon you're looking for. The USMC adoped the M9A1 as well, however the Army continues to use the M9. So... will this be looked into, and fixed? If/when there's a USMC faction, you can give them the M1014 and M9A1, but in the meantime it'd be great to see the M590A1 and M9 replacing these weapons.
  20. When you are in an injured state, your priority shgould be to stop the bleeding. It is quite frustrating, bleeding out, whilst folding away an AT weapon. Can you please look into the possibility for this weapon, that you can enter directly into the bandaging function, rather than the serveral seconds spent folding away a LAW or RPG which seems to be priority number one when bleeding to death. This can lead to death if you already have low health. Priority should be drop the weapon, stop the bleeding and pick it back up. Thank you for a fantastic game.
  21. I think that a good way to make everyone happy(people who want only realism, and people who want to be able to customize their shit), a good compromise would be to have either a side feature or maybe somebody could make third party software to make a custom skin for squad. The only thing being that other people do not see the skin, they only see the regular skin. This would keep the people who want realism happy and the people who want customization. The only thing is that there might be problems with people making their sight a bright color. But the simple fix to that problem is to have a 'modable' part of the gun that can be changed, not including the sights and other parts that would be OP. You would be able to import pictures to add to the gun or draw your own, and transparent would not show up as transparent. I will try to make some visuals later when I have access to my own comp. Also I did use the search function and the only person who posted this in another thread was me, I wanted to make it it's own topic. Please tell me your thoughts.
  22. So I think that when clans are eventually added it would be awesome for the clan leader to be able to design a clan weapon skin. I was thinking this could be the same skin for every player or there could be a base skin to which each member could add their own personal touch. I'm not sure how clans are going to work and I assume the developers don't know fully yet either but I'm assuming they will be able to be made by anybody as long as they meet in-game requirements like a skill level and minimum members to start kind of thing. This is a long shot but instead of or with the clan skin there could be a clan hat that the members' player models wear into battle or maybe just a patch on their shoulders. Also when the player base is larger it would be nice to have the ability to join a game with your clan and be automatically put into a squad together, maybe even choosing who will be squad leader/kit before hand. Also something that would be awesome is if you have a large clan that you can group members into squads and they will always play together unless swapped manually. I assume this will be added but a game mode/matches only for clans to fight eachother would be awesome and this would begin the competitive aspect of the game and allow for a clan leaderboard and organised tournaments with the top clans. TY for reading my idea, i hope this will influence the developers. Unless of course they have long since discussed these topics which they probably have. Please leave your opinions on this and list your own ideas for this.
  23. As usual, sorry for my poor English. I hope you can understand me. Second moment: please, don't write here "Squad is not milsim", "Nobody cares". I want to talk about cosmetic aspect rather than gameplay features. My favorite thing in PR is representing of different factions. Team made various units in the way they should look and act, made them distinctive and realistic. Authenticity is major component of this kind of game, although devs aren't making milsim. But Squad still stands for realism. For example, many of us remember "Medal of Honor 2010", arcade run-and-gun-and-press-to-win shooter. This game is typical COD-style FPS, but it tells story not about elite Tier -1 international task dreamteam. It tells about elite, but real units, real places and (mostly) real combat situations, based on operation "Anaconda". It is the reason, why MoH: Warfighter failed: EA has decided to sink authenticity in ocean of tacticool trademarks and trips around the world. Sadly, they don't understand it. I know, it is only pre-alpha and we should expect many changes, including player models, so I won't talk about them. But it looks like US faction is... Slightly marinated? As far as I know, Army has never bought M9A1 version, only Marines use railed Beretta. Correct me if I am wrong. Next, M203 UGL. Some Army units in A-stan still use it, but even more units get M320 and satisfied with them. Marines still use M203. M1014 shotgun is standard for USMC. Never see this gun in hands of Army infantry. I know there are a lot of veterans on our forums, who knows modern US equipment and weaponry far more better than me, and I will greatly appreciate your opinion and correcting. And one more word about your models, weapon sounds and animation. They are simply oustanding. I want to have them all in game, doesn't matter, authentic they are or not. There are a lot of modellers in the game industry, but you are Artists. P.S. Russian faction has not been represented yet, but russian military DOES NOT use Ural-375D for almost 40 years, RPK/-74/M (Except for Naval Infantry), AK-74 with metal stock and shotguns. Trust me
  24. I meantioned this breiflyin another post, and by now, some may notice my bias to the RO franchise. Weapons that are shot directly could be dropped as an ingame object, and forced to pick up. To further this, we could or could not implement a system that will destroy a weapon that shot from ones hands. This may require yet another hit box, but it was seen in RO:Ostfront with great success. Especially useful against players shoot from concealed positions rested on window sills, bunkers, or any other form of cover where their weapons are visible to an accurate marksman. This allows brief moments of time for troops seeking cover to escape sniper/MG fire. Any thoughts? yay or nay?
  25. Does anyone know what future firearms are to be included, in particular GPMG's? Will machine guns like the PKM or the M240B be availble through the normal role selection or will they be a battlefield addition through the ammo box etc. For those who are unsure of the guns I speak of: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PK_machine_gun https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FN_MAG
