      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. State of War: 41

    A quick overview. The mod aims to bring the early parts of the second world war into Squad. Depending on the amount of participators in the mod creation, we will expand the ambitions accordingly. The mod will aim to change the flow of battle and gameplay by removing individual radio communication, making communication through man-carried and vehicle-mounted radio's the most deciding factor in winning a battle. We will emphasize the strengths and differences between factions according to history. The vision is something in between Forgotten Hope and Project Reality, introducing fixed wing aircraft and iconic tanks. Other possible features to be discussed is squad/fireteam types, having access to different special equipment. Nothing is decided and changing the core Squad concept too much deserves a serious discussion. What fronts will be depicted? The initial release will center around operation Barbarossa and the german advances through Soviet, possibly through a simple meta campaign. The first release will focus on the early light tank warfare, with tanks such as the BT7, T26 and Panzer 2/ Panzer 3. The second release will most likely continue expanding the arsenal into 1942, introducing the iconic MG42, T34, Panzer 4, along with Stalingrad maps. It will also introduce an insurgency mode with sum-o-dat terrible partisan hunting. The third release will center around the North African campaign, with such vehicles as the Crusader, Stuart, Fiat 13/M40 and El Alamein. What factions will be depicted? German Wehrmacht (First update) Soviet Red Army (First update) German Waffen SS (Second update) Soviet Partisans (Second update) Britains Western Desert Force (Third update) Italy's Royal Italian Army (Third update) Deutches Afrika Korps (Third update) Free French Foreign Legion (Third update) Awfully ambitious.. Yes indeed, this is the reason i have divided the different fronts into different updates that will mostly likely take years to complete. On the other hand, the goal is not to make every obscure Czech rifle used in the war, but to focus our efforts on the most important and commonly used equipment. Because this is a mod and not a product with a price, i can only put so much time and effort in it. I'm a huge World War 2 geek and love historical accuracy. If you feel the same way and know anything about map making, 3D-modeling, texturing, coding or blueprinting in Unreal Engine 4, animating or other, please consider joining. If you have a basic knowledge of Blender and Zbrush, i'm always willing to help (or recieve help, god knows i have a lot to learn). No, this is not another WW2 thread, it's a mod project and i'm looking for people who wants to help working on it. If you are a sad fellow who loves to shit on other people's work and ideas, i'd encourage you to move along to something that excites you. It's a new year, let's get this shit started. Fusilier Rifleman: Standard rifleman class for "Fusilier squads". The meat of the wehrmacht, the Fusilier squad is the most balanced and useful of all squad types. Carries Karabiner 98 with bayonet Shovel Stielhandgranate Bandages Pioneer Rifleman: (In the works!) Standard rifleman class for "Pioneer squads". The builders of heavy defenses such as timber/concrete bunkers, teller mines, bouncing betties etc. Carries Karabiner 98 Shovel Bandages Repair/Mine defusal tools 3kg Explosive Charge Nebelkerzen 39 (Smoke grenades) Grenadier Rifleman: (In the works!) Standard rifleman class for "Grenadier squads". The spearhead of the wehrmacht, is useful for breakthroughs but cannot construct anything. Carries Karabiner 98/ Gewehr 41 Knife Bandages Splitterhandgranate Nebelhandgranate Radioman: (In the works!) This role is reserved for those who can stay close to their squad leader communicate well, arguably the second most important class in the squad. Carries Karabiner 98 Bandages Nebelhandgranate Binoculars Torn Fu.g Portable radio Assault Rifleman: Specialized class optimized for close combat, comes in limited numbers. Available for all squads, this is the class used for taking the next building or clearing out that pesky machine gun position. Wether used to protect your pioneers or lead an assault, a vital role nonetheless. Carries MP40 Knife Bandages Stielhandgranate Shovel Machinegunner: (In the works!) The centerpiece of the german squad, everything in a german squad is designed to serve the machinegunner and his assistant. While not entirely useless for close combat, this role is all about positioning yourself well and making sure the ammo carrier stays close. Carries MG34 Knife Bandages Walther P38 Ammo Carrier: (In the works!) This class carries ammo for everyone, but especially for the machinegunner role. Can place a limited number of ammoboxes, or just equip it to resupply nearby friendlies. Carries Karabiner 98 with bayonet Bandages Stielhandgranate Ammo boxes Shovel Squad Leader: The squad leader class is the glue keeping it all together, all the while being equipped for close combat. Carries MP40/MP38 Knife Bandages Nebelhandgranate Binoculars Walther P38 Platoon Leader: The platoon leader is most often seen by the different radios on the field either in a static position or in a command truck. Rarely fights in close combat. Carries MP40/MP38 Knife Binoculars Luger P08
  2. WW2 factions

    imagine if you could play with WW2 factions, weapons, vehicles, and maps
  3. Hi As many probably know of the mod to arma 2 called invasion 1944, you've also maybe heard that it's coming to arma 3 as well. But updates are very rear on our pages, so i thought i'd share a bit here ;) screenshots on our latest build http://puu.sh/mRaNZ/bf39f257eb.jpg http://puu.sh/mRaWY/b929a6ca8d.jpg http://puu.sh/mRhpk/9e21b31fd1.jpg http://puu.sh/mRhqM/df0c48f1b0.jpg http://puu.sh/mRhr2/438940b73a.jpg http://puu.sh/mRhH2/44eb0ce3e5.jpg http://puu.sh/mRhI1/b997138a2e.jpg http://puu.sh/mRhJS/7bdd9f77d8.jpg
  4. Watching this video just now reminded me that yes we do want one with the features mentioned here: 1. Destroyable buildings, planes, tanks, environment, etc. 2. Team play objectives without flags. 3. No weapon lockes. 4. Commander to help strategy and guide team objectives. 5. What did I miss from the Video?
  5. WW2 in Squad Discussion

    So, I have heard of WW2 mods in development for Squad and I know its early in the game for mods but I thought it was something to talk about. For me personally, one thing that makes squad a great game is really the sounds. I know its weird but hear me out. When you play other military simulations the weapons make more of a "bang" sound. In Squad they make a "pop" sound. Again, I know its weird but its one little thing that sells the game. So in some kind of WW2 mod, I want to be sitting in the woods on the Eastern Front with my K98 rifle and hear it echo through the trees when I shoot. Its those little things that make the game so much better. And a lot of people say " there is not enough weapon variation with WW2" but, there is. I mean you have the Russians, Germans and Americans (with a few others) that all have their own weapons and vehicles. That is another thing to take into account, vehicles. Vehicles are a very broad topic. For this, only ground vehicles. There are so many vehicles in WW2 you could use. Probably mostly tanks and Jeeps of some sorts. Tigers, Shermans, Willy's Jeeps. So think about these things and talk about what you think about a WW2 mod and what it should include to really make it great. If you want to answer these questions: What vehicles would make a WW2 mod really stand out to you? What little details of the game would sell a WW2 mod?
  6. Possibility of modding WW2

    Hej Guys, I just have a question. Will it be possible to mod ww2 weapons, new maps and so forth into Squad. I read that modding would be quite open so I am guessing that this would be possible right ? Just a quick yes or no to confirm and I would be ever so happy.
  7. Ghost Army new film to be made by. Bradley Cooper. Deception is the art of war! You know of any more to be released soon please list them here I know of one other with Nicholas Cage to be in it.
  8. Squad World War 2

    I have no idea if this has been discussed before (searched the forums but couldn't find anything). I WOULD PAY SO MUCH MONEY FOR AN EXPANSION/DLC/SECOND GAME SET IN WWII since PR WW2 isn't coming anytime soon. I know the base game isn't even in aplha but it's worth considering. Discuss
  9. Project Normandy

    Hello So i was just thinking about the fun days when we had normandy back in 0.98. And i thought i would like to re-visit that time. It took some time to find. But i finally found the 0.98 version that includes normandy in it. And i thought we could hoste a local server with perhaps hamachi or some els form of lan hosting software anyone up for that?

  11. Dragon Teeth of WW2

    http://www.warfoto.com/watch_on_the_rhine.htm Look at the war photos on this link and youll see dragon teeth used as a barrier to tanks during WW2. I hope we get to have them when we get tanks in Squad. breaking through them and destroying them will be a vital tactic, dont you think?
