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.

We dont have this problem on our server. We tried it over and over. lol
We have 43 mods now. I think it has to do with battleeye. Lots of mods seem to trigger it.

To all you people having issue with the fire breath not working: On my server atleast the fire breath of any tamed dragon either forcetamed, legit tamed, or unclaimed/reclaimed does not work untill after server has been restarted. Also the breeding does not work on said dragons until server is restarted. I know its a little bit of an inconvenience but if your server admin isnt a halfwit they will restart the server a few times a week atleast to fix the issues on your recently obtained dragons. And if you are not a halfwit you will not be mad for all the server restarts during the week that in the end help you and your fellow ark-nerds.

stoni2041 Jun 7, 2016 @ 8:25am 
Unfortunately, that bug has not been figured out yet. If you read through previous comments it is known though.

@heatherc191 - we run this with 42 other mods now. It is possible that you have a corrupted copy on your computer that you are copying from.
Be sure that when you replace the mod on your computer that you do it like this.
1) unsubscribe
2) delete ALL mod content. Two locations. steamapps/workshop/content/346110/ and delete the folder laballed 519998112 and then the 519998112 and 519998112.mod folder and file from the mod folder you are currently aware of.
3) resubscribe and let it download
4) Start ark and let it install
5) Copy refreshed mod to server.

Load order should not matter.

@Strud - we still get alpha spawns. Not sure what you are on about.
