The Arma and Squad/PR mumble channels/In-game comms will have additional regulations in order to prevent excess of audio spam and to enhance communication of our squad. The guidlines are as follows:
1) PURPOSE OF EACH RADIO
Mumble and In-game chat will both be used, but each will have a purpose of their own.
A)On Mumble (Local), depending on the situation people will in one channel if we are in one group, or in separate channels if we form squads.
B)On In-game squad radio (Squad wide), the entire squad can/Squad leaders can be alerted.
*Squad wide radio should NOT be used for a situation that does not effect other sub squads.
2) CONCISE INFORMATIVE CALLOUTS
When ever asking for assistance or calling out enemies, ALWAYS use the following format; "what your calling" + "location". Then you can follow with land marks that may help your squad mates. Always aim to keep call outs to as few words as possible, to avoid spamming the comms.
*ex. Enemy infantry, North, 350! By the tower.
*ex. I am down, South of you guys. There is an Enemy East of me.
3) KEEP THE COMMS CLEAR
Comms. should only be used for callouts, questions, and directions. Anything else is not accepted.
*Radio comms. should NOT be used to talk about irrelevant matters. We need to keep the radio chatter down in order to hear our surroundings.
4) CONFIGURING MUMBLE HOTKEYS
It is required that everyone sets up a hotkey for MUTE and DEAFEN on Mumble.
A) Muting the mic may be important in order to prevent excess noise from the comms. Also deafening the mumble chat (Radio Silence) can be useful for intense moments that require heightened focus.
B) In addition, the keys used for In-game radio should be set as "push to mute" on Mumble, to avoid irrelevent/duplicate chat on the Radio.
*To set up Mumble hotkeys, go to configure/shortcuts.
5) RULES OF ENGAGEMENT
See the following guide: http://ttp3.dslyecxi.com/2_basic_infantry.php
*We will have our own guide set up soon.
If a member violates the rules they WILL be warned. If a member continues to violate the rules of Radio communication, they WILL be muted on mumble temporarily. IF the offender continues to disregard the rules they WILL be banned from Mumble and the group.
