    Hey squaddies!



    We’re taking Alpha 15 into testing and that means we need you! The update will be rolling out to the Squad – Public Testing Client shortly. You won’t need a password, simply install the testing app. (Note: It is a full, second Squad install — be sure you have enough space!)



    The test does not have a set duration at this time — we’ll be running it as long as we need to collect as much data as possible.

    Below is an abridged list of changes to get you up and running. A complete Alpha 15 changelog will accompany the full release.

    ALPHA 15 PRE-RELEASE CHANGELOG​


    SERVERS​



    As this is a pre-release test, we’ll be hosting a couple of servers ourselves. For the time being, servers will be limited to Offworld Industries hosted machines:



    2 in Montreal, Canada
    2 in Örebro, Sweden



    Server #1 on each location is running newly optimized maps. (Yehorivka, Gorodok, Tallil, Kohat)


    Server #2 on each location is running TC layers of all current existing maps.



    If at any point the servers should crash, please contact [M] Nordic Socialist#5510 on our Community Discord server.

    • Added an Infantry Tutorial orientated putting players through basic.
    • Added an Interface Tutorial that teaches the Deployment interface.

    • FOB Radios will disable spawning on HAB’s if the Radio’s been damaged and its health has fallen below 75%.
    • All HESCO related deployables have had their visuals updated.

    • Substantially improved performance on Kohat Toi River Valley, Tallil Outskirts, and Gorodok maps.
