Le petit studio canadien Offworld industriesmet les bouchées double en ce début d’année pour nous proposer une nouvelle release de son jeu Squad la version alpha 5 avec beaucoup de nouveaux contenus au niveaux du mapping mais aussi l’amélioration de l’hud et de la carte et un petit filtre sur les viseurs du jeu et une liste de correction en tout genre .
You are no longer punished with a team switch timer if you failed to switch team
Further optimisation passes on weapon and player animation code
Jumping has been redone.Jumping no longer requires stamina. However, for every jump a small cooldown timer is associated with it. If another jump occurs before this small cooldown is up your jump height and forward velocity will become lower. If multiple jumps are done consecutively (spamming jump) four or more times without allowing the small cooldown timer to reset, you will go on an extended cooldown timer while your jump stamina regenerates. This allows more flexibility while preventing bunny hopping.
Updated rulesets to only count TKs as 1 ticket instead of 2. Fixed an issue where players would sometimes be punished for suicides twice.
Fixed an issue where sending someone straight to death would not score or apply punishments in the case of TKs.
Fixed kit logic not working correctly in all cases, We now remove your kit as a squad leader if you pass the squad leader role have been added.
Fixed an issue where players could deploy with a kit role while incapacitated, effectually allowing +1 available kits of any type.
Updated sway values for most weapons.Optics and iron sights have slightly different values to account for magnification.Speed and horizontal randomization sway has been increased to more accurately represent and convey the appropriate target acquisition timing desired.Managing combat stances should be more desirable, more effective, and medium to long range fire will potentially require more effort, especially in the standing.Updated focus time by 5 seconds to account for potentially higher difficulty in firing with updated sway values.
Changed the way traces work for nametags, so the trace comes from the eyes instead of the waist and we trace for several parts of the body instead of just tracing for Center of Mass.
Fixed a mass disconnect when Steam servers go down
Fixed bug where player is stuck in sprinting if they die while sprinting and then get revived.
Fixes to make deployable ghosts more reliable.
Updated graphics settings defaults and edited the graphics menu to get rid of variables that were not having any effect anyway.
Modified decompression for Audio which should help with performance.
Unicode support fixes, specifically for non-language characters like Emoji
Improved the inventory sliders so grouped weapons and your current selection (different coloured smoke grenades for instance) all appear at once so you know exactly what youre selecting in your inventory.
Added a UI element for jumping height penalty.
Added bleeding and incapacitated map icons on the map, visible to Medics.
Updated player map icons in preparation for a greater overhaul of the UI.
Players can now close their map and spawn-screen with the main menu button (default escape on keyboard or start on gamepad)

Changed the map so it will never be able to lock your inputs when closed anymore.
Added a pulse animation for your own player icon for quicker identification.
Fixed the inability to drag the map in the spawn screen.
Touched up the spawn menu role select to make the grey out of kits work, and introduced a new presentation style that allows for more information about loadouts at a glance
Cleaned up marker code and tooltip code, should hopefully give better performance, and no longer capture the players input when they want to select a rallypoint
Added a News message box for the main menu
Added a server licensing information notice to the main menu when server licensing is enabled. The custom games list now no longer shows when server licensing is disabled remotely.
Added the ability to delete action keys in the keybindings menu
Fixed bug where screen resolution would reset when editing settings.
