Small Dragons

ModID = 519998112

This mod adds a rare smaller dragon to the game. Has a custom AI, comes in many different color variations and now supports armor with more pieces to come. These dragons are roughly the size of a TRex, breathe fire, and when tamed they will land with an all stop whistle.

  • Both female and male dragons.
  • Custom animations for sleeping and exiting sleep.
  • Saddle is Available at level 65.
  • Wild dragons make use of thier breath weapon so beware.
  • Supports colorization.
  • Balanced for PVE.
  • Custom AI Blackboard and behavior scripts.
  • Rare spawn. Map won't be filled with them.
  • Females can lay eggs.
  • Grab and carry function. Press C while in flight.
  • Will take off and land on its own. Can chase threats on land or in the air.
  • Early stages of armor. Currently, only a chittin helm can be crafted but it does support dyes and there will be more pieces to follow as well as more polish is added.
  • Configurable run modifiers and fire damage amounts in the GameUserSettings ini.
  • Custom Dossier.
  • Supports mating. Yes, baby dragons!
  • Supports public seating with one extra seat for a friend.


The saddle Engram is available at level 65 and requires 0 points.


Only one piece for now.
  • Chitin helm - Craftable from the players inventory and takes a chitin helmet for resource as well as other common resources.


Rex Egg Kibble is the most effective followed by prime meat.

does this mod go with the map scorched earth, are there spawn points or do i have too spawn the Dragons

@sundawg That can happen when there is a game update. The stats themselves get changed on top of the game.ini stuff gets altered. So keep a copy of it on notepad or something to replace when the ini files get altered. As far as the stat value changes, that I am unsure we can do anything about.

Thanks for the update of this mod after the dev kit wait. We consider this a must have mod for our game.

As much as I love this mod, I wonder if there is a way to tone down the footsteps. My dragon sounds likes its 2 tons larger than it is. I'd expect the boss to sound like that, but smaller dragons should make a smaller sound footprint.

Has anyone else had a recent drop in their existing dragon tames stats? Several players in my server have noted that the tamed stats (specifically stamina) has dropped.
