RQ-11B Raven Addon for Arma 3

Version 2.1

By Feint

Official up to date Readme pages and detailed instructions can be found here:

http://feintgames.com/rq-11b-raven-welcome/

ADDON INFO:

The RQ-11A Raven was released in May of 2012 for Arma2 and was subsequently updated 3 more times. This new version, the RQ-11B Raven is being released for Arma3 as an evolution of that original addon. The scripts have all been overhauled, new models have been created with new textures and dozens of new features have been added.

ADDON FEATURES:

  • New 3d models (compared to Arma2)
  • New and improved textures
  • New in-camera sounds
  • New 3D controllable camera
  • New Ground Control Station interface
  • New Tactical Laser for target marking for ground troops
  • New Laser Designator for bomb guidance

INSTALLATION:

  1. Install the “@RQ-11_RAVEN_AB_A3†to your Arma3 root directory
    (usually located here: c:\SteamLibrary\SteamApps\common\Arma 3)
  2. Add the “userconfig†folder and its contents to your Arma3 root directory.
  3. OPTIONAL: Customize the “raven_keys.hpp†file using any text editor to the keystrokes you prefer and save.

DEPENDENCIES:

CBA Community Based Addons

USAGE:

The RQ-11B Raven Backpack can be found in the Backpacks section of the editor. Place in the editor and preview your mission.

To add backpack to your unit, in the init line, type: this addBackpack B_MAV_B_BACKPACK;

All of the parts of the Raven can be found in the editor under the section titled: [RQ-11] Raven Parts

KNOWN ISSUES:

  • The tactical laser can malfunction when operating more than one Raven at a time.
  • Engine sounds aren’t the smoothest
  • Assembly process doesn’t appear correctly. This is an Arma 3 bug. Usually this only happens once per mission.
  • There may be some unintentional multiplayer issues
  • Sometimes the Raven lands on the ground and takes off after a few seconds when operating at minimum altitudes – WORKAROUND: raise altitude
  • Sometimes the Raven stops in mid-air and just hangs there for a few seconds
  • Tactical laser is difficult to see at night without NV goggles and even then it’s pretty hard to see from a distance (this is a limitation of DrawLine3D)
  • When launching from 3rd person, sometimes your unit will step over before launching
  • addAction to build the Raven not showing up on backpack when backpack unloaded from vehicle - FIXED IN VERSION 2.1

CHANGELOG:

  • VERSION 2.1:
    • FIXED: addAction not appearing on backpack after unloading it from a vehicle
    • FIXED: Missing semicolons in config around descriptions of the functions
    • FIXED: Missing required addon listing in config

    [*]VERSION 2.0:

    • INITIAL RELEASE

Congrats on release, very nice addition to the game, it was missed :)

Have you ever been in a MRAO or a Hummer? I mean, sure those vehicles look big, but frankly they aint :) I dont see how it would be possible to assemble and launch the Raven from a vehicle ;)

This is something I explored in Arma2 but I had problems. I know the SEALs launched it from the SWCC boats in Act of Valor and it would be cool to see it in-game but it would take more effort than it's worth to me. I'll add it back onto the list of possible upgrades. Thanks for the suggestion.

Thanks for the release Feint (it was a great addon in A2).

Can you please be more precise about this known issue?

"There may be some unintentional multiplayer issues"

Hey,

after changing the Keys in raven_keys.hpp, Arma crashes when I try to open the Cam Menu. BTD and the Message that raven_keys.hpp wasn't found :(

Thank you.

I found a weird bug one time where when I picked up the Raven, it attached to my body but didn't apply the rotation or setVectorDirandUp values.

Sounds like when you saved the file, the name changed. Make sure the extension didn't change to .txt or something.

Nope.

still .hpp

Did you place the userconfig folder in your root directory?
