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.

for the owner of the mod, the mod is not working, dragon does not fly no gospe game, do not bite, just walk on the floor. What's wrong with mod? Anybody know?

No use complaining to the mod owner, they've abandoned this. Sort of wish they'd at least update the title to reflect that. I switched this out for far so good... though this mod felt cleaner/smoother and less complicated so RIP this mod. :(

I wish someone would remake this mod, was simple and classic, no fancy element dragons added like in newer dragons mods...
Bluefire Sep 13 @ 2:55pm

This was an amazing mod, this is just one of those sad instances where you have a great mod, but in the end, you have a mod author who gets angry at the developers of the game he mods, and just doesn't see the point in making the mod anymore because of that

This truly was a great, classic mod for the early stages of the game. Will be greatly missed.

It's broken. I had enjoyed this mod when it came out. But now dragon don't fly. It walks on air. No fire breath either.

Definitely broken. They don't fly anymore, just run through the air. Also causing server instability.
