  2. SQUAD: Tips and Tricks

    All of these things are helpful to know when playing Squad but here are just the basic stuff and if anyone else wants to add to this thread feel free to put in anymore tips and tricks. First off, some commands that every player can use for some shortcuts and useful actions: To open the command console, press the button on the top left of your key board under the 'esc' key. This will open up a slim Black box along the bottom side of your screen and if pressed twice more the console will be closed. However these commands that every player can get acess to can be carried out normally ingame, like the 'LeaveSquad' command tor 'ChangeTeams' command. However there are a couple usefull ones that will be listed bellow. 'Respawn' command: if typed in and enter is pressed your character will instantly become, 'dead dead' and you will be back to the spawn screen but doing this will automatically give you a 60s respawn timer. 'StatFPS' command: if carried out your FPS will be shown on the left side of your screen and if the command is carried out a second time the FPS counter will be turned off. Now some useful things to know when getting into playing squad. . Changing the map/Spawn screen, when pressing 'Enter'(i think by defult, i have mine on CapsLock for easier access) you will be presented with a screen with an map and the squad list on the right side. In the top left there will be a drop down settings menu that will allow you to toggle multiple settings. The ones that i advise turning on are: Toggle viewing FOB radii, toggle viewing FOB supply points, toggle viewing roles as player icons and toggle viewing spawns. These settings will make it easier for you to play the game and have a better combat awreness. .There are multiple different versions of some kits like rifleman and medic just like PR and come with different load outs and some times different weapons and optics, They can be selected by clicking once on the kit you desire in the respawn screen and then proceeding to select the specific version you want, usually there is something to balance the kits like if one kit has a magnified optic and one doesn't, the one without will have a couple extra mags or an extra grenade. Rearming, quite often in Squad you will run out of ammunition and need to resupply so will need to go up to a ammunition crate (built at HABS) or a vehicle (tanks have less ressuply ammo and vehicles like APCs have more) and look for the ammunition symbol on the top right. Once that is selected you will be able to select individually what you want to resupply or just click in the middle of the circle to resupply everything. The other options that you see in the wheel at the ammo crate allow you to change kits but it is not free and will take ammo supplies from the total at the FOB you are resupplying at. Changing kits can only be done in the respawn screen and at ammo crates not at vehicles. When done from the respawn screen, unless you spawn at the main base, you will be spawned in with the minimum amount off ammo, which consist of 2 mags for your primary and 2 bandages appart from for the medic which gets 3 so make sure when doing this to resupply after spawning. There is one last way to resupply and that is the riflemans ammo pouch which can be place on the floor and holds a maximum of 100 ammo points. Once placed it can be accessed by any friendly player but only picked back up by the rifleman that placed it down. When respawning your ammo from the last life is carried over from your last life so keep this in mind and make sure not to run out of ammo, your ammo is only automatically refilled when spawning at the main base. FTL and SLs can both place markers on the map via the spawn screen by right clicking and selecting a marker. The red markers on the right side will allow you to place markers seen by the whole team of enemy players, assets, movements or buildings. On the left will be markers for your squad or fireteam respectively. Markers placed by a squad leader will come with a distance on the compass at the bottom of the screen. The top menu is only for squad leaders and are more miscellaneous markers like a FOB creation point or Mortar target. If playing as a SL i would advise assigning two confident players in your squad FTL so they can place markers or spot enemies for you and the team. If you come across an enemy FOB emplacement it can be entered and used even though the other team built it.
  3. Squad Event: Operation Resurrection

    Once we get large games going you could go into the admin camera mode and record the game that way, get some good cinematic shots from both sides. That would be some good content!
  4. Squad Event: Operation Resurrection

    For rules, we can just copy PR rules as they dont all apply but we can steal elements from them. My ideas for rules: 1. Teamwork is the #1 rule, we cant play squad without it. 2. communication, as someone said before it would be bad to have every player require a mic but players that dont would be limited to less essential kits like rifleman nd LAT for example and more specialist kits like Medic, Marksman and HAT could be left for players with a mic. ALL SQUAD LEADERS HAVE TO HAVE A MIC. 3. Squad names allow you to claim vehicles e.g. IFV gets Bradley, BMP and BTR 80A and Tank gets tanks. No squads named just armour are allowed vehicle type needs to be specified in squad name. 4. Mech Inf squads can only claim APCs like normal BTR and stryker and heavier assests must be left to specialised squads 5. TKing is not permitted under any circumstances 6. If you are new dont take SL or heavy vehicle roles like tanks and helis without any experience. This could lead to asset waste and a loss for your team in bad circumstances. 7. DONT create a squad unless you intend to lead ( big one ) If theres no open squads and you dont desire to lead wait for a place to become available and request unfull squads to open up, you might get lucky. 8. No Baserape. Avoid builiding HABs close to enemy main and no mining roads close to the main 9. vehicles that require crewman kits are not to be one maned. BRDMs can be one maned 10. lone wolfing is available only if permitted by the squad leader and you mist ask to do so or risk being kicked from the squad. 11. all squad members should try their best to follow their squad leaders orders. There could be more, these are just off the top of my head. I do think flag skiping should be available just because it is part of the tactics in squad, building a HAB behind enemy lines to open up a new attacking front on a contested objective. I am currently writing up the 'Squad holy bible' so if you have any suggestion for rules please let me know.
  5. Squad Event: Operation Resurrection

    Ill go blufor alpha SL pls. Also just so you know, any SL can be commander and will keep their squad unlike how the PR commander is a stand alone role
  6. EVENT: Operation Chaos

    also just gonna put it out there, if armoured vehicles (warriors, MBTs and BMPs) arent on the table there isnt much requirement for a HAT in both squads
  7. EVENT: Operation Chaos

    Can i have SL for a brit squad pls
  8. No sound on my PC

    Hey i was wondering if anyone here knows how to fix this problem. Woke up this morning and the sound wasnt working at all, and as far as im aware there where no updates to the drivers and OS overnight so i am very confused. I have been trying to fix the problem for a couple of hours now and nothing has lead to success. I have tried all the basics, muting and unmuting, unplugging and plugging my headset, just restarting the PC and i have updated and reinstalled the Nvidia drivers multiple times. There may be some more things i have done but at this point i just dont know what to do anymore. Please any help would be truly appreciated. Thanks alot, Hoops
  9. No sound on my PC

    I am pretty sure you are right, i do use realtek for my audio but it wasnt something i knew at the time. I do appreciate the help tho, even if i didnt need it😁
  10. No sound on my PC

    I was trying to update the Nvidia drivers because i am using Nvidia high definition audio and that is what the internet was telling me to do.
  11. No sound on my PC

    i fixed it there was a windows update this morning and i had to restore the system to before the update. Not sure how but it worked, sorry for the waste of time.
  12. BF3 Reality Mod

    Was just scrolling through my my youtube when i saw this: After being in development for 4 years it is available for play testing if you subscribe to the dev's patron. Not much more to be said really, the video gives some good info about the game and if you want more gameplay, TheTacticalRedneck has some more vids on his channel. Looks like it could be a PR 2.0 once fully developed and would be a nice step up from those old BF2 graphics.
  13. COD MW free day 3/10

    As far as im aware it is a free to play game/game mode separate from the full game
  14. COD MW free day 3/10

    Pretty sure it is only the battle royale gamemode that is free as they decided to bring it out as its own new standalone game for some reason. Not for COD MW as far as im aware but the older CODs did have moding capability.
  15. SQUAD Registration of Interest

    Sounds great. Looking forward to playing squad with some familiar faces. If we are to use PR rules then we may have to gently role them in for players who arent in the VG community as they are used to little to no enforcement on other servers. Things like squad naming and who has the right to certain vehicles is sometimes a problem so it will br best for us to try and teach them instead of using kicks and bans right off the bat and maybe grow a larger player base for this type of gameplay we are looking for at VG. Im sure there will people in the squad community who will be down for a more VG approach on the game.
  16. SQUAD Registration of Interest

    in the top left when you press caps lock you can toggle certain icons on the map e.g FOB radius and number of supplies at each radio. If you go on custom browser there are servers with maps for this kind of thing (jenson’s range) where you can pick your faction from 2 that are currently in play and take any kit you would like and practice with it. There is a firing range for both vehicles, normal small arms and any emplacements you would like to try. You can even practice flying or go on a FIBUA(fighting in built up areas) or CQB course if you would like.

  18. SQUAD Registration of Interest

    I have been playing squad quite a lot recently, just come back to it after a long break and have been having quite a lot of fun on it. Yes it is quite disorganised to what you would usually think a game like this should be like. But not in every game, the new commander feature added allows a Sql to be voted for the role by other Sqls. This feature allows alot of coordination in games and can actually lead to a victory or a loss depending on the commander and his/her tactics. The commander does get access to off map supports and a UAV but really this isn't normally thier strongest characteristic. Rarely do i play on PR where the commander takes command of the whole team and coordinate each squad but this is what occurs in most games in squad, especially in popular servers like PA 1 and 2. If you are in a squad where the Sql lead isnt always talking to your Squad and the communication seems a bit limited more than likely your Sql is gonna be communicating in the Sql only chat with the commander. The servers on squad have quite a different rules set when it comes to vehicles and squads but it all depends on the server you join. On PA(project awesome) servers rules regarding vehicles is that it must have at least 2 crew if a crewman kit is required and for squads, they can only be locked under 4 if they are 1 man squads e.g. logistics. Squad naming is more of a decency than a rule and pretty much any squad can take a vehicle if no other squad has claimed it already, IFV/BRDM squad taking a tank. The main reason for there being 2 heli squads instead of one or a one man BRDM(which doesn't require a crewman kit) is the ability to communicate with commander and other Sqls. Joining the game and seeing things like those above may seem like it is discouraging team work but really it is just a way to increase communication. That BRDM on its own could be scouting for HABs (respawn locations) or vehicles so the team can act together to remove those assets from the battle field. But the rules depend on the server. Also just for ease any rule that may be unusual can be displayed in red text at the top pf every players screen automatically every 10 mins or so (I assume this can be set to different timings). I think a server with the current VG PR ruleset could be used but adapted more to the sqaud player base because we wouldn't want them to come on the server and do something that they would normally consider ok, get kicked or warned and not want to play. The aussie mod would be nice but i pretty sure at the moment that on the mod description in the workshop the author has written that he wouldn't like anyone to host the mod on their own server but for it to be only hosted on an official server created by the mod author. I saw this a few months ago so i am unsure if it is still true. I would be down to play on a VG server or if anyone wants to play with me i am usually on PA 1 or 2 and if u would like any help getting into the game i am sure i can put my couple of hundred hours to use Cheers, Hoops
  19. Operation Frosty Dagger

    Well done, probably the best arma 3 event i have every taken part in (although it was my first lol). It was really good fun and a good laugh. I think the mission idea was great and not too complex just following the trail of enemies from rv to rv. As for my suggestions for the next event, I think it would be good fun having a convoy mission through takistan with ambushes on the way to a compound of some sort and then a defence or maybe just picking up supplies to go to the next compound. Whatever you decide to do im sure it will be great. Thanks sausage.
  20. I know PR is going to DIE!! Whats next?

    Yeah i have. Decent game but after a while it seems like it lacks content as games can be quite repetitive (especially on coop mode). Graphics and game play is good but it is more on the hardcore side of things which is good. In some game modes it requires good teamwork and comms but mostly it isnt really required. Can see it as a good idea for small groups to play on but for large communities not so much, most game can only have a max of 8 players with others having only 4. Personally i think it is a good game but not one you can dump 100s of hours into, just not enough content.
  21. Abuse of admin power

    Hey, Project Reality is a heavily teamwork based game that requires good communications skills to succeed at all. As the commander of the whole team yous should be communicating between SLs and other players with both comms and all chat. This gives you all the resourses you need to communicate with your team to ask if you could remove a certain FOB or carry out an area attack. You just need to keep in mind that even as the commander you are not above anyone else nor are you if you are an admin or VG member, we are all just here to lay and have fun. So if KaraMara was telling you not to destroy the FOB just don't. And as the commander your map is a big tool, you should be able to see if your team has any FOBs or if anyone in particuler may be helpful to the team. Don't destroy it just because you want something else because it is likely that many others may want something different. There was nothing wrong with what the admins did ingame in this situation, you did destroy the one active FOB which could've made the team lose the round. Skitalez just told you how to d it and not to actually do it, so he didn't do anything wrong either Anyway the moral of the story is to make sure you communicate with your team before you do something as it could piss someone off.
  22. Server issues

    Sometimes this does happen on Al Basrah. Not sure if it is just this map or not but it is known as the ‘deaddead glitch’ and it is where all players load into the map and have the black screen that displays ‘DEAD’ as you said. There doesn’t seem to be any way to get around this glitch atm appart from someone logging onto TC and restarting the server. If you want any more info on this it is probably best to talk to Deathdealer or BinkleDinkle as they are the ones that told me most of the above.

    Bravo SL pls
  24. Canadian Kokan (CAS??) Heli

    Hey, re. title: Canadian Kokan (CAS??) Heli I am slightly confused if this heli is considered a CAS asset or not as over my time of playing PR i have been told by multiple players and VG members that it is/isn't a CAS heli. I have also searched the forums for any existing answers to this and found nothing. I have been told it is a grey area and not quite yet decided. But it would be nice to know if it is or isn't so i don't have to be moaned at for using it as a trans or CAS. Cheers, Hoops
  25. Squad
