Welcome to another installment of The Wrench, a look at some of the great work Squad’s modding community has been doing over the past month. Below are updates from some of Squad’s mods written by the mod teams themselves.
To submit updates on your Squad mod please fill our our submission form: https://forms.gle/p9awjvtT5Rd2QqtH8 (URL)
Due to the volume of submissions that we had this month some of the updates are being held for a future Wrench.
What follows are updates sent to us by the people behind the mods themselves. Their words, their images, and their amazing work!
Before we begin everyone at Offworld Industries would like to pay their respects to CillinjoLo “Ewan” (西林觉罗) who was an active member of our modding community working on Squad Vietnam, Steel Division, and SquadZ in various capacities. We know that his loss will be keenly felt by all those who worked with him and knew him. We have extended our condolences to his family.
Hey so the team from the Smoking Snakes team present to you with two of our best models!
The M113BR featuring a fully modeled interior, and our work-in-progress of the VW-Worker 15.210.
Please join our discord if you want to know more about our project!
In preparation of the ASL season 2 tournament, we created this mod to fulfil our desire of track attack. Season 1 was done on the vanilla track attack.
We changed some rules of the Track attack and add some layer.
We hope to launch the tournament in April.
More information can be found in the discord.
Greetings from myself and the Squad: Vietnam team,
Our submission for this wrench is a brief recap of work we’ve been doing over the holidays along with showing the wrench readers some of the things we’ve already teased over on our discord server.
First up we have the M79 40mm Grenade launcher, a pretty iconic weapon for US troops during the Vietnam war. All credits go to Hoover for the excellent model.
The Vietcong truly were a guerrilla fighting force rather than a conventional army. They used many traps and tactics to ensure that every soldier fighting against them felt a sense of fear night and day regardless of their proximity. From shoot and scoot mortar attacks to punji stick traps, the VC were creative with their warfare. We have put a lot of careful consideration into the design of our Vietcong faction. We hope to deliver a true asymmetrical gameplay experience by leaning into guerrilla warfare and away from more conventional forces.
With that in mind, we would like to show you test footage of our first Vietcong trap, the tripwire grenade. Credit goes to Luminous for the models and ERENEJ for implementing and making the trap reality.
We still have a few items in the works when it comes to weaponry and vehicles but thanks to a concentrated effort from our team we’ve recently overcome a serious bottleneck in our pipeline. While this means we are edging ever closer to a playable version of the mod we still have plenty of work to be done and tested before release. Those of you with keen eyes may have noticed we don’t have an estimated release date but don’t fret, the mod is still alive and kicking, we’ve just decided to learn from our previous mistakes.
For regular updates, teasers and additional info about the mod please visit our discord.
You can see what our African Union soldier will look like with his French lizard camouflage and his M16A2.
This faction will be equipped with a variety of equipment, such as Russian, American, South African and even French.
We also have a plan to reuse all the equipment created for this mod in a remake of the movie black hawk down…
So don’t hesitate if you are an established modder, 3D Artist, 3D Animator , SDK Integrator, Sound Designer ? Join the Tactical Collective team and come to participate in our projects!
Our EC665 tiger will be available in different configurations, more or less armed to facilitate balancing. This pilotable version is a long term project that will follow the progress of Squad gameplay and the eventual addition of combat helicopters.
Almost all of the 2020 Faction soldier kits are ready as you can see and the new Scar H PR army sniper rifle is being added to the arsenal of this faction.
We are looking for a blueprint master to help Medinar implement all this wonderful content we present to you at each wrench, so don’t hesitate to apply on our discord.
Here is the L119A2 that equips the British SF and we are also working on the C8 IUR version used by the Canadian Special Forces.
The SAR 9 will equip the Turkish forces, once completed.
We are working on an update that will bring a lot of content and we have taken into account the problems of balancing that we will try to solve.
The unarmored spec ops technical is part of these changes.
If you have serious skills in 3D, weapon animation, integration in UE4, or sound work, please apply in channel recruitment.
Hey were still Working on making Japan happen in Squad and we are still looking for Talented Mappers and People that want to make Japanese Assets for the Maps. Fore More Info or just to see more of what we do join our Discord.
Panjwai has been updated with seven new invasion layers, an AAS layer, night lighting layers, Insurgent BTR80, Insurgent Mi8 helicopter, and new RAAS layers! The mod has been updated for 2.12 and is ready to be played. Please consider running mods on your server with the influx of returning players for 2.12 may make servers with mods easier to seed.
This month, the Bundeswehr Mod Team wants to show us everything new around their new engineering level assets, such as new NATO Bunkers and destructible bridges. They are also showing off weaponry to man and defend bespoke bunkers, such as the MG3 on the finished Erdziellafette – a MG tripod, equipped with a trench optic for firing out of cover and animated 240 round belts for the MG3.
Since the Germans are not fielding heavy MG´s on tripods, this will be the FOB emplacement equivalent for the Bundeswehr faction. Of course there must be also equipment to deal with heavy defensive structures! Their M113 Panzermörser (armored mortar carrier) with 120 mm Tampella mortar and their Panzerfaust 3 (AT launcher) with Bunkerfaust warhead will help your team overcome any obstacle in your path rather quickly.
Their cherry on the pie this month: You can play the new levolution mechanic on your own server! You will get a standard narva map, with all bridges over the train tracks being destructible. Read more about the mechanic showcase Narva+ Mod here: https://bwmod.com/narva-mod/
