  1. Currently working on a new HUD for the Drakon! Going to look beautiful when it's done. I'll post some concepts a bit later!
  2. Hey all! I know some people have had confusion on how to use the Drakon. So I decided to make a tutorial! If you have any other questions, just message me personally. Thanks! TUTORIAL
  3. Yeah we noticed this as well. It wasn't a huge concern for us so we didn't take it out in this first release. We'll adjust it for the next release. Thanks for the heads up!
  4. Unfortunately we don't have plans to add sidewinders. The Drakon isn't made for air to air combat and it's already overpowered as is. Also, the real version of this drone doesn't offer AA assets either. So it didn't make sense for us.
  5. Thanks for troubleshooting that for us officeramr, we'll look into it and add it to the bugs/incompatability list for now.
  6. IT'S FINALLY HERE! GET SOME! https://forums.bistudio.com/topic/185244-apex-drakon-jet-powered-uav/?p=2921315
  7. The APEX Drakon Finally, after 6 long months of development it's here... Introducing a new Unmanned Aerial System for Arma III. The jet-powered APEX Drakon offers a new way to control the battlefield in a sleek, effective way. Derived from the General Atomics Predator C 'Avenger', the Drakon comes equipped with a slew of incredible weapons and takes no prisoners. Not only was this model built from the ground up by none other than Kiory, this incredible machine comes equipped with a custom loadout editor made from scratch by AWOL, a well known Arma mod creator. Efficiency, design and quality were all key factors in creating this masterpiece. Prologue After a year into Arma's release, I had become frustrated with the vanilla UAV systems. With a game based in 2035, why were we using propeller driven aircraft? Also, why such a weak armament and why are they still extremely buggy? With those frustrations in mind, I set out to fix it myself. Meeting up with Kiory and AWOL, we began work on a new UAV system that would completely change the way UAV's would be viewed in Arma. 6 months later, the Drakon was released. While we still have a long way to go to get it where we want to, this is a step in the right direction. Addon Contents Includes the APEX Drakon .pbo file which comes with a single Drakon and a custom loadout editor built into the mod. FEATURES Jet-powered UAV system Nearly double the speed of vanilla UAV systems 4 external hardpoints and 1 internal bay Custom loadout editor and service menu (To be included in future builds) HELLAD Solid State Laser system Multiple camouflage patterns Stealth and Laser selectable variants Re-built UAV terminal TUTORIAL CREDITS Arma 3 engine: Bohemia Interactive Project lead: Church 3D Artist: Kiory Code/Scripts: AWOL Video Production: Church END USER LICENCE AGREEMENT: DISCLAIMER You are permitted to install and use this software for personal entertainment purposes only.

If you'd like, please donate to our cause! DOWNLOAD LINKS HOW TO INSTALL AND USE: Simply extract the @Drakon file from the .zip folder and drop it directly into your Arma directory folder! Once in game you must spawn an ammo support vehicle next to the Drakon in order to access the APEX Support Menu. Enjoy! KNOWN ISSUES Keep in mind the Drakon is still very much in an alpha state. This is our first release and there WILL be bugs. Here are a few we are aware of: The Drakon still uses Arma III's unfavorable UAV system. We know, it's something we want to get away from. The Laser Designator doesn't spawn on the UAV unless you first apply a loadout. The UAV flight model needs to be cleaned up. It currently floats too easily and the stall speed needs to be adjusted. The UAV turret cam works when it is stowed away, allowing you to see inside the drone. This will be fixed in a future patch. For some reason the Drakon doesn't get along with ACE's missile system very well. We're looking into that. For now, avoid using with ACE. There may be many others. These are just the ones we're very aware of. Feel free to PM me with any bugs you find outside of these ones. FOR MAKING WORK WITH ACE Thanks to Bamse for pointing this out. Remove these 6 .pbo files in order to avoid conflict with ACE. ace_javelin.pbo ace_laser.pbo ace_laser.pbo ace_laser_selfdesignate.pbo ace_laserpointer.pbo ace_missileguidance.pbo ace_yardarge450.pbo THANK YOU! PLEASE ENJOY OUR MOD!
  8. Hey guys, Sorry for the delay in updates! The first release of the drone is nearly ready to go! Kiory and I had some setbacks in our business working for other paying clients and it made us put the UAV on hold for just a bit. We're almost ready to go! Thanks for the continued patience, you're all awesome.
  9. Due to the ridiculous power of the laser, we've opted to have the laser loadout support only the laser. This is how it is done with the real Predator C as well so it makes sense to us. This drone is made to work with other drones very well, so I recommend having a fully kitted out drone and a laser drone to support.
  10. Very soon, I promise! All of the really big stuff is done! We're fine tuning the last things that are going to make this drone really great and then we'll push out our first release. I don't think I can give a date right now but soon!! I will, however, give you guys a teaser of our Custom Loadout Editor Tablet! It might just become a lot more than a loadout editor too ;)
  11. Nope! The Drakon uses the internal bay to house the laser components. It will only have laser capabilities when it's in that loadout.
  12. No, we don't have plans to give the Drakon and AA capabilities at this time. It's already extremely powerful as an air to ground weapon, adding AA would be overkill.
  13. We're getting very close to first release everyone!! Here's a peek at the first mock-up of our loadout editor!
  14. We've been doing some internal testing and I think we might need to tone down how badass this drone is...
