Hi Squaddies,

During our Kickstarter campaign we held a vote to see which map from Project Reality you, the community, wanted us to remake for SQUAD. Fallujah clearly won that vote and was put on the roadmap. At that time, we were still learning a lot about the engine and how to efficiently tackle level construction in Unreal 4.

We started with barren desert maps like Kohat, then started adding more complexity seen in maps like Chora and Sumari. From there, we explored the Eastern European setting with large forests on maps like Fools Road, Gorodok, and Yehorivika.

Next, we pushed on to an urban setting on Narva, all the while knowing that Fallujah was one of the key maps that we were working towards. Upon the release of Narva, we began pre-production on Fallujah. At this stage we knew we wanted to take some extra time to brainstorm how we approach gameplay and visuals, because of this we decided to revisit our workflow and we really think it has paid off.

Getting Organized

The first thing we did was spend about a week reference digging. We wanted to gather tons of inspiration and sources to help us capture the essence of Fallujah.

In order to stay organized and to produce things in phases we broke the city up into four key recognizable districts: Outskirts, Industrial, Urban Residential and Urban Center, each contributing to the map in a unique way both in visuals and gameplay. Defining these districts allowed us to plan out the flow of the map and also breakdown the production of the assets into manageable phases....

Hi Squaddies,

Winter may not be coming for all of us, but at least partly on the northern side of this cute little blue ball the days are getting shorter, nights are getting colder and the people spend more time in front of their PC rummaging around inside the Squad SDK. So, let's see what this community came up with in the month of September before hibernation kicks in!

Join us on the Community Modding Discord[discord.me] where you can join discussions and meet the modding community. It's a great place to share your ideas and passion with like-minded people that will be happy to help you along the way.

Afghan Valleys by dazZz-666

Based around the regions of the Hindu Kush mountain ranges between Afghanistan and Pakistan, this map caters to everyone who enjoys fighting in my rural areas as well as people with a taste for urban combat. It has been made with an US vs. Insurgent layer in mind and something for all the fans of the Afghan theatre.

FN Minimi Mk3 by Pawin
[​IMG] [media.joinsquad.com] Made for the French Forces Squad mod, this work-in-progress weapon is already a beauty. For the modeler, Pawin, it was quite an unique experience because as everyone who tried to model a machine gun already knows: these things are complex and are filled with a lot of challenging components. ...
Hi Squaddies,

I'm Chuc, Lead Animator on Squad. You might know me from my previous work for Project Reality (where I was also Lead Animator), but also all the Squad updates and news forum posts that just so happened to be in my area of responsibility, though now is taken over by our community manager, Gatzby.

I wanted to provide an update on where we're at with the Animation System, as well as the road we've had to take since beginning this system overhaul.

[​IMG][media.joinsquad.com]

Back in September 2015, even before we released in Early Access, we were starting to see a lot of flaws and shortcomings with our animation system. Which was severely hamstringing us not only performance-wise, but our ability to expand it and add new features in a stable and reliable manner. In reality what you, the player, are playing with now on the current Release version 9 is something that was built from the very early days of Unreal Engine, in order to get something working, with little regard for architecture and expandability. Over the months of development and Early Access release feedback, weve made some minor incremental improvements to it in terms of performance and some additional visual fidelity, but nothing major in terms of features.

Fast forward to January 2016, when we had laid plans to rework the animation system with one of our Senior Programmers, Kory, in charge of learning and in essence building the system. At the same time, me and another animator Kab (recently hired at the time) were in charge of reanimating and re-rigging all of our weapon and character assets (over 1800 individual assets) as even the standards we were using with the old system were incorrect. We made significant progress with the creative side of development, where we had managed to re-animate almost...

Announcement Donations Required
Alright guys, I'll get straight to it. For the last few days we have been bombarded by DDOS and lag attacks whenever our server is at its prime. This causes alot of players to leave, and the seeding of hours is wasted in a few minutes. This issue has been up at the higher administration for quite some time and now we have concluded that we need a new dedicated server which can fix many of the problems we are currently facing with lag.

When we started we had but a few people, there was no website, and there was no server. After months of working stuff out, we were finally able to buy a website domain and now we are supporting a monthly server. We have along way from this, many of the donors (I wont say their name) have funded the server for quite some time. They can keep funding the current server too, however, for this upgrade we need your help.

I don't usually talk on the financial matters of SSG, because it is not my prerogative but today I am forced to do so. We have grown from a small community of few people, with more larger than I ever thought we would be. We have a good admin team and capable members. For this reason, I request that for the upgrade and to keep the servers and website running we need your help. Even a small donation of 10 or 5 dollars will help us to better the servers. Keep in mind that this money is not taken as a salary or used for any personal thing. It is spend on the clan.

Our Paypal donation system is set up and now we can take donations directly from you guys. So now we can accept donations directly without any kind of third party agent.

I hope that the admins and members who can help us in this task, will help us. I owe them my personal gratitude.

In the end I would like to say that to keep our ambitious clan functioning and our servers running, a few people who are leading the clan can't do it alone. We need your help as SSG will not survive or thrive without full dedication from its members and admins.

Thank You!
