      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. I dislike so much the "forced zoom" that was introduced in v10, please allow us to not be forced to zoom in when all I want is simply ADS no need for the zoom, it's annoying, make it like PR please then again, when I want is to "focus" for a clear shot, I have even more zoom, please, all I want is to be steady, not to zoom in 1x in the target there is no scope in the gun, then I dont want the zoom my suggestion, is to unbind the "forced zoom" from the "focus" (gun steadiness), maybe in the menu we can choose, so we can disable it then, when disable, it would be like this: Right click: ads (no zoom) Shift: steady (no zoom) please, you fixed the nametags, maybe you can do this too? give the hardcore players this... thx edit: also, having the screen moving forwards and backwards everytime is horrible for CQB
  2. Rework "Focus" mode

    I'm new at this game, but I have played a lot of other realistic games before, such as Arma and RedOrchestra series. Squad feels like a really great game, but the game's "Focus" mechanics really bothers me, and I feel like there is so much potential to improve the game by changing just this one thing. 1. Zoom. I know there is a group of people that refuse to understand the real purpose of zoom because "bionic eye". I'm part of the group that feels that zoom is essential to present the game in a realistic way. It is essential to be able to properly assess distances and engage in combat. Squad offers so much potential with it's large viewing distances, please don't undermine it with poor zoom implementation. Right now there seems to be 2 problems with zoom: It feels that the game doesn't zoom-in enough. Whatever your FOV slider in the game is, whenever you "focus", your FOV should change so that a person at 100m on your screen is the same size as a person at 100m in real life. This will allow you to notice and engage enemies at the right time, as well as properly assess distances and correct for target distance and target speed. Zoom shouldn't be time limited. The game shouldn't zoom-out when you run out of breath, because zooming-in isn't "focusing your eyes to see better", it's "looking at the world at a realistic scale". It should not be linked to breathing. It is extremely annoying right now. 2. Holding Breath. Red Orchestra 2 has a really great mechanic for "holding breath". Instead of stopping breathing for a short time when pressing a button, your character goes into "controlled breathing mode". In this mode the character stabilizes his breathing, making longer pauses in between inhaling and exhaling for you to make the shot. This works so much better than the current Squad implementation. It allows you to have better control of your gun without unrealistically reducing sway. You just have to time your shots better. This breathing mode also adds a lot of options to realistically reduce it's effect: you can't properly control breathing after a long sprint, when your stamina is low, or when you're receiving heavy enemy fire (suppression). TLDR: Change "Focus" mode so that zooming is done to a realistic level (1:1 scale with real world) and is not linked to breathing. Change breathing from "holding breath" to "controlled breathing".
  3. Permanent zoom? NO!

    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. Can we have a menu option to toggle this on or off as we please? If off in menu, there will be no zoom watsoever in any ironsighted guns, including HMG, techies, side-guns on choppers, etc. That is just for scopes
  4. Will we ever have optic's in game that look realistic instead of just zooming in the entire screen? I tried my hand at Photoshop to demonstrate what I mean. Another good example would be from Red Orchestra 2 I think it would make the game that much more immersive and add that extra bit of realism to the game.
  5. Right now, any map the US has a CROW they can utterly dominate. Many accounts of foliage no rendering at long range, different geometry so they can spot people from long range. Not to mention it's a 50 cal with a long range zoom. On a specific map (the one with north/south DC, forgot the name) The US utterly massacres militia by hitting the hills east of DC and having 50 cal overwatch over the entire map as far as the C column of grids. This is ridiculously brutal and nobody can get anywhere near the hmmvw to hurt it. When we do hurt it, the CROW takes 5 RPGs and still doesn't go down (probably a repair station nearby since it's the meta to superfob those hills to the east and completely destroy the entire west 2/3rds of the map) Can we please balance this? Either fix the rendering, reduce the zoom, or make it worth 30 tickets. It's far more effective than the BTR in just about any situation other than transporting troops, no reason it can't have the cost associated. edit: the main issue is getting shot from a kilometer or more away through all kinds of foliage (and solid cover) from something you can't even see (even with optics most of the time, you just see the tracers) it's just brutal on a whole other level and contributes to the phrase "Playing US is easy mode"
  6. Hello, I'm not sure where else this would belong. Perhaps on Bug Report, but perhaps this might garner the question if others have had the issue as well. It's really rare, actually. I haven't had anything else happen like it before. I had my map open after pressing M, then pressing N (while gun fire was in the background, I believe it was the .50's), the game crashed. Prompting this error: Error Image If there is anything else that needs to be provided, I will do so for the devs. E:/ Crap just noticed where this was posted. Sorry, I meant to post it in Software Support ._.
  7. 1. When running, your head doesn't really move at all. It feels like you're a camera that's panning. Increase head bob when running. I'd even increase head bob fractionally when walking, then up further for when running. 2. IRL when sighting a weapon your head leans in toward the sight some. When you sight in Squad, it's like you're just holding the weapon up in front of your face. Increase the zoom some, perhaps to around half the value of the zoom that results from holding your breath. ATM you feel about ten miles away from the foresight. Just because zoom is a popular topic does not mean it shouldn't be brought up, so I saw fit to mention my opinion on zoom as well as a suggestion for head bob when running. Just because you see zoom brought up "again" doesn't mean it deserves to be dissed, especially when it is not the focus of the topic, so please reply considering that.
  8. Hi, forum This is my first post, I tried to search for topics like this one but did not really find anything, so I went ahead and made a thread. First off i really like the role of binoculars in the game, as I mostly play medic, it gives me a role out of combat. -Is it an "alpha-issue" that binocular vision is just a "zoomed" view? I would like to see through a hole or an oval, as it looks in real life, with bad periphial vision - it shouldnt be too hard to implement either. - I would like a distance recorder / laser on the binoculars! (maybe just the SL's, or if a Sniper-team role is ever implemented, for the spotter to have good binoculars, with distance measurement.) -Will there be zooming on snipers? I have only tried the SVD, but I think it's a pretty weak zoom... personally I have an 2-8x scope just for playing hardball, so it should be possible to zoom more, and hopefully also change the zoom. also a fun mechanic for snipers to have to do a little tweaking when putting people to rest. -The grenade launchers, or even sniper scopes should be able to be changed - to fire on different ranges (by rolling your mouse 3) to correct for bullet/grenade drop. I haven't felt any ballistics too much in the game(if at all), and honestly I don't know how much they effect real life shooting, but I think it would add to the fun, and its not like one wouldn't have the time to change the sights before enganging an FOB fx. This would also give the laser/distance viewer a nice role in-game, and enforce communication further. thanks for reading :)
  9. Hi guys I have a simple request that I know I would find very useful. Could we please get the ability to assign a key to zoom out of the on screen map as opposed to the single cycle mode we have now? I've lost count the amount of times I'm tying to zoom in on the map on the fly and zoom in too far only to have to cycle through all the views again lol. I know you have full manipulation of the map on the spawn screen but I think this small addition would be neat while on the move :) Obviously this is far from an essential feature but I'm curious what everyone else thinks?
  10. ACOG zoom issue

    Hey, I have noticed that when i zoom in my ACOG scope or sniper scopes, my whole FOV zooms in. This is not realistic as your whole view does not change. Only the view in the scope. Take a look at this video. thanks!
  11. Hey, It's me again. This time I would like to address on the issue of zooming. When you ADS, you press shift, you would be able to zoom slightly to see enemies clearer. However, it is only a slight zoom. For players playing on poor monitors like 720p monitors like mine, it is very hard to see enemies more than 100m away. I would like to suggest having zooming same with the ACOG distance, and for acog users to be able to zoom also but only abit. Or scratch that entirely and go for binoculars for every player. probrably weaker binoculars compared to the Squad leaders. Thanks
  12. Solution for Scopes

    Something didnt work properly with the pictures so Im just going to gave you this links instead of them. Something what annoys me and probbably a lot of other players in the Squad and other fps games is zooming the scope .When you use scope which can maginfy, it zoomes in the whole picture instead of only scope. The problem with this is rendering. If you had normal aiming in the games your screen picture would look like 1x outside and lets say 4x inside of the scope, but then your pc would need to render the map twice what dramatically lowers frames per second. Develpers currently have few solutions for this: 1) Is to maginify the hole screen lets say 4x like acog, what Squad and Battlefield currently use. https://www.google.hr/search?espv=2&biw=1680&bih=925&tbm=isch&sa=1&btnG=Tra%C5%BEi&q=Squad+gameplay+acog#btnG=Tra%C5%BEi&imgrc=oyIIYPwPMjpkdM%3A https://www.google.hr/search?q=battlefield+gameplay+acog&espv=2&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwie8_-ujpvKAhXCgQ8KHS7VAsEQ_AUIBygB&biw=1680&bih=881#imgrc=mSwLu_GEzJmuiM%3A 2) Which is actually pretty retarded, Battlefeild uses it for snipers, is to magnify the scope and make all around it black. https://www.google.hr/search?q=battlefield+snipers+scope&espv=2&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjfxpS5kJvKAhVFiQ8KHev0DWwQ_AUIBygB&biw=1680&bih=881#imgrc=hRHpkX2iJng2WM%3A 3) Which I think is the best,and which one many of us would like to be in the Squad, and this one really should be implemented in the game. Magnify the whole picture and blure everything outside the scope like you, developers, did in the project reallity. It looks good with the acog and you could probably implemet that for sniper scopes too. And it could be improved by making picure outside little less blurry and maybe to set metal part aroud the magnification glass non blured. Here is how it looked like in the project reality: https://www.google.hr/search?espv=2&biw=1680&bih=881&tbm=isch&sa=1&q=project+reality+gameplay+acog&oq=project+reality+gameplay+acog&gs_l=img.3...94306.101322.0.101523.19.15.1.0.0.0.331.2124.0j4j4j2.10.0....0...1c.1.64.img..19.0.0.RD8JD5teXJE#imgrc=LqD6UzEn3qQ6cM%3A I know that developers currently have a lot of job fixing bugs and fps dropps but they should really consider this little problem because it acctually improves gameplay for people who care for realistic details, and yeah, just press like button if you approve this oppinion. Sorry for bad English.
  13. Feedback on the game.

    So I noticed that there's no scopes on assault rifles expect for US. The maps are big and so it would be nice to also have scopes(red dots and etc.) for RU and Militia. Second, why is there no scope available for the medic? And finally, raising my weapon doesn't bring a close up, I have to press shift to zoom and on top of that it is time limited... Just my opinion and ideas to help better the game. Besides that, great job and keep up the good work!
  14. Shift/Focus feature

    As a big RO2 player I really like the focus feature. However I think the focus should last as long as you hold shift. How is this balanced out? Focus is only available when you have green stamina and stationaryIncoming suppression prevents you from focusingCan't focus in bleed stateNow I know that the first point is already in the game. With long engagement distances, ironsights (ak and rpg) could really earn their keep with this. Closed pre alpha, perhaps this could be tested in one of the next builds and see how it impacts gameplay.
  15. Did a search on binoculars and zooming nutin came up.... I hope a character will have this capabilty to zoom in from afar using spotting binocular range finding set. Would be cool asset and it would be bigger and see farther than just a rifle scope.
  16. Zoom Mode - on and off

    please add a zoom mode in the main menu of the game, so that we can change it according to this suggestion: I really don't care what it should be called, so I made my own names: (no to be taken seriously, ok?) 1-) Battlefield (or Call of Duty): what it is now, zoom for everything 2-) Project Reality: no zoom at all, only scoped weapons will have that, and that's all. No zoom for 0.50 cal humvees, techies, or choopers (side guns) either. Nothing The changes can be client-sided. It won't affect the server or gameplay of others. That means people decided how they want it Or it can be serve-sided too Most important: There can't be a third option, kind of a mix (between the two options, or anything else). Either it's on (battlefield/call of duty) or off (project reality) Thank you!
