  1. Hello, Escapers! We are proud to announce we will be opening a Japanese language subforum on the official Escape From Tarkov forums, to allow our uses from Japan and those who speak Japanese, to have an area where they may discuss Escape From Tarkov in their native language. With the start of this initiative, we would also like to open Recruitment for a Japanese Emmissary and Japanese Moderator. Details concerning the position are below. This offer is for Fluent Japanese speakers only, but also please be aware that English is also a requirement to communicate with fellow Forum Administration personnel. Let's answer some questions that you may have? What does a Moderator do? A Moderator's prime task on the Escape From Tarkov forums is pretty easy. Help keep the forums orderly and easily accessible by removing/locking posts which clutter up the forums or are previously discussed topics. This helps cut down on repeated posts of the same topic and allows for unique discussions and conversations. Forum Moderators also handle punishments for rule violations based upon the forum rules, the violation in questions, and the nature of the violation. Things like this include, profanity, derogatory language or attitude, toxicity towards other forums users and creating a hostile discussion environment. The Escape From Tarkov forums is a place where both new players and older, more experienced players may converse, with players of various difference age groups, so ensuring everyone is able to find the answer to their question without being ridiculed by older, experienced players is a priority. What does an Emissary do? An Emissary's job is to connect with our player base and future players. An emissary should have a solid grasp on gameplay mechanics and features, allowing them to answer questions that most players would have about ingame mechanics or features. An Emissary helps guide newer players and potential players towards the game, and finding their way within the game. Like an out-of-game Sherpa. Emissaries are also tasked with translating Project News, Patchnotes and other announcements of important into their individual native languages, so that these announcements can be read by the native speakers of their region. What do we look for in a Moderator? When we are going over potential applications for Forum Moderators, we look at key indicators that help predict how effective a moderator that person may be. These include: Forum Activity Written/Spoken Languages (Especially for Multilingual Forum Moderator Positions) Age/Maturity Positive Interaction with other Forum Users Previous Moderator or Supervisory Positions Gameplay/Technical Knowledge about Escape From Tarkov What do we look for in an Emissary? Be active - Always at attention, locked and loaded to carry out your orders. Translations - You will be responsible for intercepting, and deciphering all incoming news, and communications. Communications - Talk with Operators in your forum section, make social media pages, twitter, and any other way to spread the news! Field Operations - Go into your region to find well-known Streamers, Magazines, YouTubers, Gaming Events, etc. What affects your Application negatively?

  2. Thank you everyone. It's been an honor ever since that early morning that I pre-ordered EFT back in January. I may not talk much, but I'm always around, the Scav around the corner
  3. Aye it is Battle Brother!
  4. Hello Escapers! Recently we announced a future mechanic within Escape From Tarkov, "The Hideout" that will be playable in the future Open Beta of Escape From Tarkov. Many of you had questions concerning the Hideout, and we are happy to provide to you a compiled list of questions and their answers from the Developers! We hope you enjoy these answers as much as we enjoyed reading them! Thank you to everyone who submitted a question in regards to The Hideout and your continued support for Escape From Tarkov and the Battlestate Games Development Team! Many thanks go out to @Blackb1rd for providing these questions our community asked in regards to the newly announced Hideout's Feature. Additional thanks goes out to @Olloch, who helped curate and format the questions to assist in their readability. German translation of the news Thanks to emissary @Leos45 French translation of the news Thanks to emissary @AGN_YuD Italian translation of the news Thanks to emissary @baggio Polish Translation of the news Thanks to emissary @NuclearMessiah Korean Translation of the news Thanks to emissary @deadspace2 Japanese Translation of the news Thanks to emissary @giraffy Czech Translation of the news Thanks to emissary @PugMonk Turkish Translation of the news Thanks to emissary @Dimitri468 Chinese Translation of the news Thanks to emissary @Hazel Questions from Hideout Announcement Q: Can we bring/invite other players to our hideout? A: This is very possible in the future, and our Development Team will look into being able to share your own personal hideout with other players! Q: Will the hideout get attacked by SCAVs or other players? A: The Hideouts will be located in a secure zone within Tarkov, and will not be at risk of assault by Scavs or other players. Q: You mentioned upgrade security, what does that improve on? A: You will be able to reinforce the hide out’s entry door and install security cameras. Q: Does this mean we have to scavenge for fuel just like loot in order to keep the generators working? A: Yes. Players will need to scavenge fuel to keep their Hideout generators replenished and in working order. Q: Where will be the hideout located? Somewhere on the map or in a separate instance? A: The Hideout is located in a separate instance from the rest of the game, being an area to relax, recuperate and re-arm between raids. Q: Is the hideout going to be accessed through the main menu just like the traders and stash? A: Yes, you will be able to enter the Hideout from the Main Menu. Q: Are there going to be SCAV guards on it? A: At this time, No. But we do plan to add a cool feature in regard to Scavs in relation to the Hideout in the future. Stay tuned for future details! Q: Will we have the option to upload custom art/pictures for posters? It would be nice to make our own art for graffiti too! A: This is great idea! We will take this idea into consideration amongst the Development Team and will see what is possible! Q: Does the hideout replace the stash? Meaning, will the hideout mode serve as a replacement or 3D alternative to the current character inventory screen? A: The Hideout will not completely replace the current inventory/stash/trader screens, and is essentially a visual representation of your Stash. You will be able to access your stash from within the hideout, but it does not replace the Stash completely. Q: Can I walk around in the Hideout? A: Yes, you will be able to move freely about your Hideout Q: When outside of a raid will the character automatically be sent to their hideout or will it be another option in the main menu? A: At this time, returning to the Hideout will be optional, selected via the Main menu at the end of any raid. Q: Do we have to go to the hideout to mod our weapon? How does it defer from the stash in this regards? Is it a replacement or addition? A: The Hideout is a visual representation of the Stash. It is an additional option that players may use, but does not outright replace the Inventory/Stash menu. Q: Do I equip myself by going to the shelves and take whatever I need? No more menu equipping or both are going to be available? A: No, you will not have to equip yourself from the shelves. Q: How would this work alongside with the clan system? Can we have clan hideouts with the common clan stash in there maybe? A: This is a great idea and is very possible. We have planned to have this in Escape From Tarkov, and will announce more details when the time comes Q: Traders; Will we be able to use the computer or the laptop (as seen in the pictures) to communicate to traders? Then how will our items be delivered to us? A: You will not be required to access Traders via the Laptop to trade. You will be able to visit the Traders via the traditional Traders Menu currently available in the Alpha Test. Q: How would the 'ammo creation' be done? Would the ammo be of a certain quality, or is it determined by skills and the modules? And how about the medicines? A: You will need to collect resources, such as gun powder. When you upgrade the workbench within the Hideout, it will unlock additional crafting blueprints. Crafting ammunition will take time, and to decrease the amount of time required, you will need to progress in related skills. Items such as MedKits will require alternative components, such as a Medical Resource. More details regarding our crafting system will be announced in the future. Q: Will there be a community hideout where there is only one per free roam server? A: At this time, no. There will not be a community hideout in the free roam map. Q: Will our hideouts be part of free roam mode? - So will we be able to find other player's hideouts within the map/server? A: At this time, no. Hideouts will not be implemented into the free-roam map as they are separate from all raid/free-roam instances. Q: Furthermore, will separate item classes have their own containers? Weapon crates or weapon racks, then fridges for food and water and refrigerators for keeping medicines cool, clothes racks, a rack to hang up all our body armor? - The list goes on... A: No, there will not be separat containers for items based on item types. The Hideout feature is not intended to be a replacement for the current stash system, but a fun feature for our players to enjoy. Q: With the firing range, will we have to use ear protectors, since it is indoors? This would not be realistic without it. A: At this time we currently have Ballistic Ear Protection ingame. It is up to you, the player if you wish to equip them or not through the Stash system. Q: How do we 'unlock' the hideout, do we find a large empty bunker in game? Or do we buy it from a trader? Or is it just given to us at the start? A: At this time there is no details or decision on this. It is very possible that the Hideout will be a very special quest reward. Q: How extensive will the customization of our hideout be? Can we buy 20 desks from a trader, just for the sake of it? Or is it a set template to just upgrade to? A: Customizability will be slightly limited. As this is to be a supplementary feature and not a core-gameplay feature, it will be limited to a preset-configuration with various upgrades available. Q: Will there be precise object placement within the respective zones of different purposes. So can we choose where we place each of the targets within our shooting range, or is everything going to be a set template which we cannot alter? A: There will be no precise placement of objects within the Hideout. The Hideout is a place to rest and relax on your quest to Escape from Tarkov. You are not intending to reside there long, as you are trying to escape! Q: Can we please have a music player in our Hideout? Maybe even add our own by having a playlist in certain folder of the game like some games do. A: This is a great idea. We do plan on there being a music player, and it is very possible we can implement this feature with music folders. Q: How many modules will you be able to employ simultaneously? A specific amount we have to choose from or all of the available ones? A: No. The Hideout essentially will have a tree of unlock-able modules and upgrades, but you will not have to weigh decisions of which upgrade to utilize. Fully upgraded, the Hideout will feature all available modules/upgrades that are available. Q: Will the modules be tiered and have a cool down? A: The modules will be in a tier-based system. Q: Will there be rare modules? A: Yes, there will be rare modules called ‘elite’ modules. Q: What and how many types of resources do we have to gather for the hideout? How does this work? A: You will need to gather many different items. Every module has prerequisites - 5 tool sets, 4 car batteries, and level 5 Intelligence skill for example. You will need to meet this requirements to start construction. Q: Will each Hideout be the same, or will they be different? If so, in what way? A: All Hideouts will essentially start with the ‘basic’ setup, and will be customizable through the player’s choice in upgrade/modules to install. Q: Always loved housing mods in Fallout that actively displayed the items stored there such as weapons on wall racks, food and drinks on shelves. Would this be something we can expect to see in EFT? A: We are considering this feature. Q: How much interaction can we have with the environment? Like: sit and watch TV, repair weapon, etc. A: These are great ideas! We will consider them and look into implementing them in the future. Other Popular questions Q: In the interview with COO Nikita, there was an answer given that there would not be any belt fed machine guns. But there were mentions of RPK before and we have seen it on videos of the studio. We also have a skill tree for it. So are these machine guns never being added or just not at this moment? And maybe do we get drum-mag ones and not the others? Can we please, clarify this more? A: There will be belt fed MGs; We did not say that there would not be any belt fed machine guns, only that it is tedious to implement at this time. Q: Will there be an update or two before the closed beta? Or are we waiting for the closed beta to start? If it is possible to talk about this now. A: Yes, there will be an update before the start of closed beta testing. Q: Will stash and secure container upgrades be available with the closed beta start? If not, when do you plan to add those missions to upgrade this features in-game? A: No, as we announced in the Hideout Announcement, the Hideout Feature is planned to be implemented in the Open Beta of Escape From Tarkov. Q: Does the use of Sweetfx get a player banned? I would like to use it for tweak of the game look and mood of it on my liking. This is also allowed in other games. What is the stance of BSG on this? A: No, SweetFX will not be detected and flagged as a cheat by our anti-cheat system. We are constantly making improvements to help catch and ban any player who wishes to gain an unfair advantage over other players. Q: Does any use of macros get a player banned? A: At this time, no. We do reserve the right to change this decision at any time. However, use of macros may/can cause unforeseen issues within the game, and it is not recommended to use them. Other questions that came up related with the Hideout announcement Information Q: How do you plan to let death affect the game? If you die, do things like Radiation and other negative effects go away or do they stay? A: We are considering the possibility of Radiation and other negative effects staying with the player after death. Q: Does your health that you came out from the raid gets patched up right away just like the armor repair or do we have to take a time off and rest, etc? How does this work? A: You will need to take care of those things in between raids. They will not be automatically fixed after every raid. Again, we would like to thank everyone who submitted their questions in regards to the future Hideout feature coming to Escape From Tarkov. More will be announced and released in the upcoming future, so be sure to stay tuned for any and all Project News!
