AIM OF THIS WIKI PROJECT
Update the entire Squad Wiki to the current version V1.0 of Squad.
See all Release Versions.
- If you find changelog line that do no have any effect on the wiki, move it from section #Not yet finished to section #No Wiki Change Necessary. Ideally, we do this clean-up process first to then focus on actual work for the wiki.
- From section #Not yet finished, pick a changelog line you want to work on. Update the wiki according to the changelog. Maybe more than one page will be affected by one changelog line - so you have to know the wiki pages to find all the places that might need updating. If unsure, ask Usgu or Shanomac99. some suggestions where changelogs should go on the wiki have been added. Also, apply some thought how and where to best include the new information on the wiki.
- When you are done, move the changelog line to section #Already finished. Please also list the wiki pages you have updated for this changelog - this makes it easier for other editors to see what you have done.

NEW MAP: FALLUJAH
Take to the streets of Fallujah, the latest map to join Squad and one of our most dense city environments to date.
NEW FACTION: MIDDLE EASTERN ALLIANCE

Server Player Population Increase
- Increased the maximum player capacity of servers to 100 players (+1 slot for Reserve Slots).

- If you were part of the Company Clan Backer level, we will be contacting you or your Company Clan Leader within the next month with information about how to get your clan’s custom uniform unit patch up and running in Squad. All Company Clan Leader backers will initially have a “Squad Legion” Company Clan unit uniform patch to showcase that they were a Company Clan backer. After your Company Clan Leader has received and responded to our information request, you will be able to enable and disable your custom unit patch in the same In-Game Settings Menu -> Steam Inventory.
