If you go to your 'My Gang' page, you'll see that you can now create/disband squads and add/remove cars from them. You can now also add/remove characters from cars. (In an in-town event, this is disregarded, and whoever you have selected from the events page itself will be used).

The owner of a squad gives it a password. This allows other gangs to join it. The owner can kick other gangs out when the squad is in town.

All the stuff below is not yet done, but this is a quick brain-dump on how it will work.....

World Travel
The squad owner sets its movement orders. Encounters are generated immediately and you?re shown the first. You can choose to play it out anytime, and the squad cannot do anything else until you do so. Someone in the squad who isn?t the owner can also force the combat to happen 30 minutes after this - this stops the squad owner from holding up everyone else.

Scouting around outside town
One of the movement orders you can set for a squad is ?scout around outside town looking for trouble?. Encounters are generated one after another until you?re done. An encounter with a trader gang can just be ignored, as can an encounter with a pirate gang whose cars are all slower than yours. You?re also liable to meet player-squads who are skirting the same town. An edge-of-town battle is unique in that it has a safety zone (the town itself) you can reach to escape (there is no such thing in pure wilderness battles).

Arriving from a journey
When arriving into town after a journey, you may meet a player-squad who is skirting the town at that time. This is checked for when you click the ?confirm arrival? button.

A PvP battle on the edge of town must be played immediately (unless both gangs choose not to fight: this is also an option on the website for all combats)

Anyone who isn't available when a road combat is being played will be controlled by AI
