      Forum Rules

      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.
      The rules of this forum have been last edited November 24, 2015.   Section I: Posting Guidelines   §1 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.   §2 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.   §3 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 In doubt, it is recommended to rather post in an existing thread, unless that thread is years out of date.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.   §4 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.   §5 Language, Free Speech & Respect
      This community can only work if we all respect each other - while we will not strictly moderate every little swear that occurs, the Squad Moderation Team will moderate any spiteful / aggressive behaviour, even if it is not expressed with explicit language. As a privately hosted web forum, there is no guaranteed “right for free speech”, especially not when it would impact other users negatively. The moderation reserves the right to remove rants and unsuitable content at any time.   §6 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.   §7 Attitude towards Squad, the Team and other Users
      As per §5, keep in mind to be respectful and reasonable, not only towards all users of the forum, but also towards the Squad Team, towards any ideas and content and the game itself. Criticism is welcome, but if it is not constructive or 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.   §8 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.

      On Site Selling and Trading of Items

      We are fine with allowing members to post their gaming stuff you need to sell in the "Discussions - Off Topic" as long as it doesn't get out of hand.
      All transactions are between the members involved and OWI will not be involved nor get involved in any dealings. All negotiations are to be done in the privacy of PM's between the parties involved. Only computer hardware is allowed. Software and any non computer items will be removed and the poster warned. No commercial activities will be allowed. Only personally owned items can be listed.
      When the item(s) are no longer available either because they have been withdrawn or sold the thread must be terminated. This should be done by the OP so as to inform the membership that the item(s) are gone.   Abuse in any shape or form will be dealt with quickly and could include punishment right up to being banned from the site.   We reserve the right to terminate this allowance at any time and to modify the rules at any time.   Thank you

  1. Same as in title. This forum is still somehow active....
  2. Completely mistook unity for unreal engine. Probably from my limited experience, but I feel the somewhat opposite. The games dont have enough weapon sway. But it's also probably due to me being small build with a pretty heavy system. Seeing your location is in america, the m4 is pretty light and you're probably a big tall dude.
  3. Escape from Tarkov Same engine. I think it's a survial game but ignore all that and focus solely on the gunplay. It stood out the first time I watched the video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MmklF4az0pE Notes to take: There is seems to be little things they have done to improve the gunplay vastly. The weapon sway is much more apparent than in squad.- @4:44 & @1:44 In squad, even with the recoil your weapon sights is always in the middle of the screen (ie your camera recoils in sync with the gun). However in this game, the recoil makes the weapons climb away from the middle of the screen/player camera. (Of course the head camera should recoil with the weapon but the weapon should recoil more than the head in automatic fire as the energy transffered to the head should be somewhat damped by the bones and flesh)This is more apparent @ 4:44. Squad example (slow mo )- https://youtu.be/Ymjl1jORB40?t=3s @2:10 when the player switches to his side, you can see the weapon oscillate up and down caused by the player model crouch moving till he stops to take more accurate shots. Player Head camera seems to sway more caused by body movements- @3:50 The player camera seems to sway from side to side when moving about. In squad, the player camera feels quite static even when running. The weapons handling looks fluid and smooth - I know there is some performance issues with 3D sights in squad, but tarkov showcases what the gameplay might have looked like with 3d Sights. @1:48 the red dot sight actually looks like it is infront of the holo sight insted of being painted on the middle of the optics. The switch from the optical to the side sights @1:48 so damn smooth and fluid. These are the main things I could pick up on that Escape from tarkov have done better than Squad. I think this would make squad a more realisitc while also increase the viseral experience.
  4. Will there be trackir/Occulus implementation? I can guess it will be on the backburner if so, but is there any possiblity? Helps with helos and planes.
  5. I was looking back at some of the PR mod videos and people were havin a giggle with the British command voices. Then I realized, I don't think I've seen the commo rose in squad videos yet. Am I blind or it is going to be implemented soon? Video in question: https://youtu.be/rvPEG2JmVts?t=5m
  6. HUH..... Hey Spearhead here aswell!!!
  7. Yeah it is really good, however it is not compatible with TrackIR. The head band is too wide for the TrackIR emitter. You need to cut out a chunk with a hand saw from the headband. Got myself the 388 headset (little brother of the 780) and it also is thin enough to tack on a trackIR.
  8. Err, I have the correct package for this weekend but when will I receive my keys for the pre-alpha? Any ETA ie day and time? I checked my junk and inbox like my fridge, expecting something.
  9. Welcome, and plz no ban me admin.
  10. Am i not allowed to ask for a reasoning? Are you an admin sir? https://youtu.be/hDoGqZUHVEI?t=5s
  11. I asked an "admin" a question to do with the gif rules. Not state it.
  12. DAT was fast Awesome. Thank you very much
  13. I want to have some type of animation allowed on the signature. I am thinking about the squad logo but with the flag moving about in the wind.
  14. Like i said, gif within the 350x150 size limit. Not "half the size of the monitor". Possible admin?
  15. Err, did you use PS for these? Might as well learn myself Thanks for the try. I feel like im asking for too much. But........ could you add this behind the Nepalese flag to get rid of the empty areas
  16. Please allow small gifs that still abide the rule. I don't see the problem with gifs.
  17. Probably, gonna be the only guy asking for this...... I challenge you to make a Nepalese variant. Good luck with that. Hint: it is not a rectangular flag. If possible also please add a khukri infront of the lower half of the logo.
  18. I was watching a BF3 color correction video when I got hit by the nostalgia train. The BF2 US, Chinese and MEC loading theme. Beautiful scenery with the soundtrack running in background The great times when the music was of grandeur instead of electronic fart music which the genre has now devolved into. I do know that permissions will need to asked, but it is possible to add just 1 or 2 tracks to start the nostalgia train and give tribute to BF2 if possible???. Plus the loading themes have no connection to the modern battlefield games, therefore I wouldn't think it would affect the battlefield brand in the first place. Just to give tribute. Also should save some development time as the music asset is already available. I also do think that grand orchestral music would be quite fitting for a military theme aswell. EDIT:I'm not saying that Scott Tobin be replaced. Just for 1 or 2 Map. The possibly remakes when time is free ? Road to Jalalabad, Strike at Karkand........ Mod: please switch this post to suggestion please.
  19. I do know and enjoy Tobin's work. Im just saying theme for just 1 of the many maps to be implemented
  20. Yea, I do see problems with my suggestion but doesnt hurt trying to see whether they'll give permission. Fingers crossed.
  21. Enemy wheelbarrow spotted......
  22. No arma stances please. Far too cluncky of a mechanic. But Far Cry 3/4 mechanic. YES PLEASE....... fluid and intuitive.
  23. I think they squad should have NDA till release on certain situations. ie bugs,glitches. Because it isn't representative of the game until release. Probably force every video to have this disclaimer
  24. WTF? You don't want people to heal and suppress. You can't do these unless you are co-operating with the enemy. Even then, the server admins would be watching. The stats should be an indicator on the player's play style. Not his skill.
