Quite a fair bit of that could be done using scripting, persistent variables and my team loadout changes.
Karajorma's Freespace FAQ. It's almost like asking me yourself.

Yeah, he said it was easy, looked complex to me from what I knew of existing squadwars anyway.

Up to you at the end of the day.

Aardwolf, that's about the most useless pointing out of that fact that I've seen.

Still on the same plans as before.  We are all a little held up by other projects at the moment but we do have a plan......

Well I just noticed that he appeared out of nowhere and asininely asked everybody for updates on 4/20, and hypothesized that maybe he was "under the influence"

 
Re: Squadwar will return one day. Get your suggestions in now.
In response to controlling the number of squads a single player could be in: 1) This should be controlled by that player's FS2NET account not the in-game profile; this will help maintain that the player doesn't join too many squads. 2) Also I too think that players should be limited to one or two squads, but they should be able to change which squads those are; they shouldn't be able to change whenever though, they should have to wait something like a week or two after joining a squad to leave and join a different squad.

Nope, not under the influence.

I like GS's ideas btw.

Re: Squadwar will return one day. Get your suggestions in now.
Thanks! I like my ideas too! Haha, hey can we get some sort of option somewhere to recieve an alert via like email or something when a new update to the game is released. The email should contain data on anything new as well as maybe progress on whatever is being worked on. Kind of like a newsletter. This should probably go some where else, but I'm not sure where.

Re: Squadwar will return one day. Get your suggestions in now.
One Squad per profile. . . . I never liked people splitting their flag.
 
Pick it and stick to it I say.

 
Re: Squadwar will return one day. Get your suggestions in now.
I don't think this has actually ever worked in real squad war back in those days... people can always make more than 1 account and join 1 squad with each of those. Actually getting the thing to work should be of a higher priority than sorting out the details :P

 
Re: Squadwar will return one day. Get your suggestions in now.
Well, yes getting it to work should be of a higher priority than getting the details sorted out. We could have a system that prevents the players from creating multiple FS2NET accounts with the same email address. Trust me, people are much less likely to create multiply email accounts than they are to create multiple online accounts on something else, like FS2NET.

Re: Squadwar will return one day. Get your suggestions in now.
I've already got more email addresses than I can count on one hand.  That's a lot of possible FS2Net accounts right there, with email validation.  But the accounts themselves would be completely separate entities, and you would have to constantly be switching your account in game making sure you don't use the wrong one, etc.  So really I think that just limiting to X squads per account would be enough for most situations.  It could also disqualify you if you are using more than one account.
