Forum Rules

  • Items changed, or highlighted for future attention, on 20 July 2013 are highlighted in yellow.

Global Rules
  • Forum moderators may or may not be Tripwire Interactive staff members, but either way, please respect them, as they are the authority of the forums. Speaking to them with intentional spite will not be tolerated and may result in the loss of your forum privileges.
  • Any decisions made by any member of staff or moderator are final and not subject to discussion. Doing so may result in a ban from the site. The owners of Tripwire Interactive Forums reserve the right to remove, edit, move or close any thread for any reason, as well as to remove access to the forums for any individuals with or without warning for breaches of the rules.
  • If you have a complaint regarding another user, PM the appropriate moderators, or if you have an administrative issue, [RO]schneidzekk.

General Behaviour
  • Use the search function before posting. Chances are your question has already been answered.
  • Use a title that describes the content of your post. Don't use all caps or special characters to draw attention either in the title or the body of the post.
  • Up to 10 emoticons are allowed in a post
  • Political discussions are prohibited.
  • Flaming - We do not tolerate abusive, malicious, personal attacks. You will be banned if you persist in this behavior.
  • Trolls - Anyone deliberately antagonizing other forum users by posting 'flame bait' type messages is not welcome. You will be banned (possibly without warning depending on the severity of the issue) if you persist in this behavior.
  • Personal insults (directed at anyone) will result in a ban. If the behavior is not corrected, it will be made more permanent.
  • Constructive criticism is welcome. However keep in mind we (and other forums goers) may not agree with you. If you can't keep the conversation civil, you will be removed from the forums.
  • The use of hyperbole, one liners, and images as part of a forum debate is likely to get you infracted. You have many ways to participate and be a constructive part of this community, even when you disagree.
  • To make the highlighted bits above 100% clear to everyone, the following WILL NOT BE TOLERATED:
    1. Personal attacks, insults, antagonism of any forum-goers, moderators or Tripwire Interactive staff.
    2. Name Shaming and Public "Witch Hunts" are also not allowed.
    3. Breaches of confidentiality and privacy of any sort.
    4. Any form of racism, bigotry or attacks on race, creed or color.
    5. Linking to posts on other forums related to ANY of the above, whether you are the originator or not, without exception.

  • There has been too much in the way of abhorrent personal behaviors in the past. These will cease. It doesn't matter who started it or who reacted to it - it will all result in moderator action. If you have to indulge your hatreds, for whatever reason, go do it elsewhere - and do not try and drag our forum-goers over to enjoy your hatreds.
  • We understand that people have strong feelings about our games, what we do for a living and how we respond (or don't) to comments on the forums. We all aren't going to agree about everything. So, BE CIVIL in your disagreements!

  • DO NOT Transmit any message, information, data, text, software or graphic files, or other materials ("Content") that is unlawful (including illegal drug usage), harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, libelous, hateful or racially, ethnically, sexually or otherwise objectionable. This includes publicizing private information, such as individual's real names, IP addresses and anything else that might be used to identify them to the freakier members of the internet. This also means you may NOT publically share private communications (PM, email or anything else) without the original poster's permission.
  • DO NOT Post or transmit any Content that contains a virus, Trojan horse or other mischievous Content.
  • DO NOT Post or transmit any unsolicited advertising, promotional materials, "junk mail", "spam", "chain letters", "pyramid schemes" or any other form of solicitation.
  • DO NOT link to posts on any other forums, or any other form of media, that breaches our rules. It will be treated just the same as if you had posted it here.
  • DO NOT Double Post, cross Post, "necro post" or restart closed threads.
  • DO NOT Intentionally or unintentionally violate any applicable local, state, national or international law, rule or regulation.
  • DO NOT Upload or transmit any Content that infringes any patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright or other proprietary rights ("Rights") of any party.

  • - For images in signatures: 1 image up to 400 pixels wide, 150 pixels tall and 100kb in size plus 2 lines normal size text and up to 100 chars per line
Netiquette: Written text has no inflection, and, as such, you should be careful how you write your messages as interpretation will vary from person to person. Please take advantage of the built-in emoticons to add such expression to your words. Please remember the golden rule: to treat other forum users the way you would like to be treated. Please use common courtesy, and enjoy using Red Orchestra's forums
Offensive material
The following is a list of some things that MAY be considered "offensive" by the moderators and the team. This is NOT an exclusive list and it does depend very much on context.

Crossing the line into "offensive" territory is likely to get you asked to change your name, sig or avatar or to withdraw/delete posts. This will be done politely by the moderators. If you refuse to comply further action WILL be taken once started, ultimately leading to banning from the forums.

A key point: please attempt to use your brains. What is mild humour to you may well be deeply offensive to others. While we have no intention of acting as politically-correct "thought police", we are on the lookout for those things that can cause offense and, in some cases, are actually still illegal in some jurisdictions.
  1. Names recalling notorious war criminals or personalities.
  2. Names recalling atrocities and war crimes in general, or units with particularly odious histories.
  3. Use of obscenities and expletives.
  4. Blatant racism, mysogynism or many other "ism"s.
  5. Use of symbolism and regalia recalling Nazism or Fascism; this does not include pics of soldiers who happen to have such symbols on their uniform, unless we feel this has been done to provoke. Please note that many Nazi symbols (including the Swastika) are still illegal in Germany and other countries and considered deeply offensive by many Europeans.
  6. Use of symbolism and regalia recalling Stalinism.
  7. On both the previous two, the moderators' views on the intention and impact of use of such symbols will be final - not yours. Please be understanding if you are advised to change something.
  8. In general, if a sig/avatar represents your allegiances in-game and is clearly "in part", it is likely to be fine; if the moderators feel you are trying to demonstrate unpalatable political allegiances, or to use it in an attempt to ridicule or provoke others you WILL be asked to change it. RO is NOT the place to make any extremist political statements of any kind.

So people get the idea, some examples that would be considered offensive, numbered as above:
  1. "Hitler", "Beria"
  2. "NKVD Blocking Detachment", "Einsatzgruppen"
  3. This one should be pretty obvious...
  4. So should this - and it includes calling all Germans "Nazis" and all Soviets/Russians "Commies". It got boring 50 years ago, so stop it.
  5. Use of swastikas, fasces, SS-runes and so on for the Axis.
  6. There is actually very little overt symbolism from the Stalinist era; the hammer-and-sickle isn't offensive per se.

A simple rule-of-thumb: many Europeans find Nazi symbolism of any sort offensive; many Americans still find Soviet symbolism offensive. Engage your brain before using.

Final Note: this is NOT open to debate, so please do NOT start whining and moaning if a moderator asks you to change something. They will advise at first, giving reasons, then, if you take no notice, they will step up the pressure through to banning.

    Do you use SweetFX or did so beautiful lighting on Unreal Engine3?

      Cause that's not how I make my maps.

      Mayako is set in a completly different stage of a day. Lightshafts are slightly off as there are some things I need to think about first. That's what "work in progress" means.

      Nah, no SweetFX. Pure UE3 lighting (and RGB table).

        Keep the faith Defwen.

        Many years ago, I had a forum mixer with Hourences ( ) about if level design was an Art or a Craft. I choose craft, mainly because much of the making is technical and requires proficiency with a number of tools/apps. Hournces said "ART!", as the vision is what drives the results. Level designers adapt to whatever game engine they're working with, and will get as close to their deired results regardless of the tools provided. Maps are so subjective, the only opinion that really matters is your own. Though it's nice when other ppl like it as well

            Hi there,
            I'm proud to announce first public release of Yonabaru, a custom map for Rising Storm. The map is in early beta, yet playable and hopefully enjoyable.

            Shuri Line, 1945. Yonabaru is located on the east of Okinawa. Repel enemy offensive, capture nearby villages, town and push Japanese forces to a sea during your counter-offensive. Yonabaru Airstrip is your final destination and objective.

            RSTE-Yonabaru (Beta) is available on the Steam Workshop.

            Current bugs/missing features:
            - sounds
            - cover nodes, mantle (currently only in the most important places)
            - building interiors
            - non playable areas are flat empty
            - no bots support

            Steam Workshop:

                  RSTE-Yonabaru B2 is available.

                  [NEW] Partial support of bots
                  [CHANGED] Objective B (Crossroad) reworked
                  [CHANGED] More meshes for Objective A (Frontline US base)
                  [CHANGED] More meshes for Objective C (Destroyed Village)
                  [CHANGED] Lighting (See details below)
                  [FIXED] Players couldn't spawn on SLs
                  Current bugs/missing features:
                  - sounds
                  - cover nodes, mantle (currently only in the most important places)
                  - interiors
                  - non playable areas are flat empty
                  - possible issues with SpawnProtection volumes
                  Lighting change:
                  Mostly positive feedback have been received so far for B1 version. However I was forced to change it as from gameplay perspective, the map wasn't enjoyable. B2 has a fog and different lighting to limit long-range fighting as much as possible. I'll return to B1 lighting in a future, I promise. It's a temporary change.

                      Ok. I'll place this on Crucible and give it the usual load and execution tests.
                      I'll report the results.

                          Just had a muck about on this and its just as nice as before, but the limited range helps a lot with optimisation. I'm now not stuck with under 30fps for most of the map, so it now looks playable. Nice to see the bots being able to move also.

                          There was an issue or two with the last cap regarding frame rates. For some reason once I get into the area with the hangers and the airstrip my framerate plummets to sub 1FPS at times. I checked to see if anything was going on in the background, but nothing else on my system seems to be doing anything that would cause such issues. It just seems to be that area also due to the second round returning my system to normal.

                          Was thinking on sound (as its rather empty atm) to help get an idea of the heat maybe add the sound of Cicadas? If you ever go to Asia in the summer (or at least Japan) you will likely know you CANNOT escape that sound.

                                New version's light looks like a storm is coming in. A Rising Storm perhaps?
                                Ok, I'm not funny.

                                Have you contacted the guys doing the Pacific Armor mod? The wider spaces on this look like a tank or two would work well.
