Drone Silo Compatible Aircraft

Building Function

BASIC INFORMATION

The Drone Silo houses all Drone Silo Compatible Aircraft ( Drone Aircraft )  that will deploy when a Base is under attack.

  • The Drone Silo has a Trigger Range ( Radius ) of 600
  • The Drone Silo will begin deploying Drone Aircraft when an attacking Unit breaches the Drone Silo's Trigger Range.
  • The Drone Silo, once activated will continue to deploy one Drone Aircraft at a time until it is empty or deactivated.
  • The Drone Silo will Deactivate and recall any deployed Drone Aircraft that are not actively engaged or pursuing a Enemy Unit once all attacking Enemy Units exit the Drone Silo's Trigger Range.
  • Fully Destroying the Drone Silo will simultaneously Destroy any and all deployed Drone Aircraft.


DRONE SILO INTERFACE

The Drone Silo interface may be accessed by Left Clicking the Drone Silo then selecting " OPEN " from the menu.

DroneSilo-Function1


  1. Available Aircraft - Shows the Type & Number of Compatible Aircraft in the Airfield / Hangar that may be added to the Drone Silo.
  2. Availability Restriction - Only Drone Aircraft that have 100% Health into or out of the Drone Silo.
  3. Loaded Aircraft - Show each Drone Aircraft that currently loaded into the Drone Silo.
  4. Drone Silo Capacity - Show the Used / Total Drone Silo Capacity used by the Drone Aircraft currently housed in the Drone Silo.
  5. Drone Silo Level - Shows current Level of the Drone Silo.


ORDER OF DEPLOYMENT

The order in which the Drone Aircraft are deployed is determined by the Units the Drone Silo contains at that time.
The full Deployment Hierarchy is as follows :

  1. Night Owl
  2. Slayer Drone
  3. Reaper Drone
  4. Wing Drones
  5. Copter Drones
  6. Halcyon

Units not in the Drone Silo are removed from the Hierarchy and the remaining Units are adjusted up accordingly.

DEPLOYED DRONE AIRCRAFT BEHAVIOR

Drone Aircraft that have been deployed from the Drone Silo will behave as follows:

  • All deployed Drone Aircraft are controlled solely by R.U.B.I.
  • All deployed Drone Aircraft that are destroyed during an attack will be
    • Repaired to the same Health as the Drone Silo
    • Redeployed in subsequent attacks until the Drone Silo has been fully destroyed.
  • All Drone Aircraft are deployed with the same level of Health as the Drone Silo at the start of the Attack.
  • All deployed Drone Aircraft are subject to their individual Ranges when targeting a Enemy Unit.
  • All deployed Drone Aircraft that have no viable Enemy Unit to attack will
    • Hover or circle the Drone Silo until a viable Enemy Unit is detected
    • Return to the Drone Silo upon its deactivation ( Closed ).
  • All deployed Drone Aircraft are instantly destroyed upon the Drone Silo's destruction.
