After 3 years of inactivity and 18 months of silence, the Draken project is finally being revived with a new version for Prepar3D v4, to be released in 2018. Stay tuned to this website for more information.
Since I do not have the time to maintain this website actively anymore it will be scaled down successively, beginning with the closing of the support forum today. There has been very little activity in the forum for the last 12 months and I seriously doubt that it will increase in the future. I have […]
The website went offline for a day or so after a system update crashed a plugin, but now we are online again. I doubt that anyone even noticed the glitch. Not much activity here at the moment, but at least the website is still up. I have no idea what will happen in the future […]
On request from many users I have put together a stripped-down AI (non-flyable) version of Draken for FSX. It contains five LODs with about 30k polys in the highest LOD (compared to 75k in the full model) and – of course – no interior model. You can find it on the Download page (registered users […]
For those of you who haven’t already noticed, Draken has now been updated to version 4.1.2. This final update to 4.1 only comprises a bugfix to the PN-59 navigation system. If you have installed version 4.1.1 and don’t feel like downloading and installing the whole 17 MB kaboodle again, there is also a patch which […]
This is a maintenance release which fixes all the (known) problems with the autopilot and navigation system. It is a complete installation, not a patch. It also introduces a change to the course indicator, which no longer points to navaids or waypoints. That functionality was really a remnant of the very earliest version of the […]
The promised maintenance release (4.1.1) is slightly delayed due to the fact that I have a new job, which is great, but which also means less time for Draken. I have precious little time to spend on this as it is, as you well know. The update will be released before Christmas though, that’s a […]
The autopilot is still not working properly – the bank/turn control especially – but a solution is in the works. There will be a maintenance release (4.1.1) at the end of this week which will take care of this as well as some other minor problems. If you have other issues with 4.1 please post […]
If you are using Internet Explorer 11 you may have noticed that the logo banner is missing from the website. This is due to the “inventiveness” of Microsoft with every new release of IE, always a pleasure, thank you very much. I will patch it up eventually. Meanwhile, consider using a W3C standards compliant browser […]
The max/min G force condition for enabling Altitude Hold mode was reversed in 4.1. You can download a fix for this from the Download page. Just replace the file “..\Airplanes\Saab_35_41\panel\j35bm.cab” in your installation with the patched file and reload the aircraft. Easy as pie.
