Flyers equipped with the Homing Pigeon Leg Ring will automatically attempt to return to the specified, or the closest Homing Pigeon Flag owned by the tribe, in the event that the rider dies.

Simply place Homing Pigeon Flag(s) to act as rally points for flyers, and equip your flyers with the Homing Pigeon Leg Ring via the costume slot.

Don't forget to drop the mod a like and add it your favorites:

  • Auto-return - Flyer automatically attempts to return to a Tribe Owned Homing Pigeon Flag when its rider is killed.
  • Send to Flag - Manually send a flyer to a specific flag (can be a Tribe, Allied or a Public Homing Pigeon Flag).
  • Recall to Flag - Manually recall a flyer to a specific flag.
  • Set a default return flag per flyer - Either a specific flag, or the closest tribe owned flag to the flyer.
  • Tribe Log support - Homing Pigeon notifications are recorded in the tribe log.
  • Rename Homing Pigeon Flags - Handy to know which is which and where your flyer is flying to.
  • Custom Flight Path algorithm - Sends the flyer to a dynamic altitude to mitigate collisions.
  • Custom collision avoidance system - Enabling flyers to navigate around obstacles while on route to destination.
  • Public Homing Pigeon Flags - Public rally points for any tribe's flyers. Cannot be destroyed or damaged.

@PommieGamer it was the last TLC for now, they focus on bug fixes now, so new TLC will be after the new DLC Instinction or something like that, so would be kind if u dont wait month to fix the new Argy Model ring bug x.x

@archluckyjomer No other dinos are supported. For the full list of vanilla dinos please read the FAQ's thread .

@Nerdberd Thanks for letting me know. Was inevitable that the TLC updates might cause problems. I will track this as a low priority bug and work on a fix once all of the TLC passes have been implemented.

@shalliekat No reason why not, but there is also the built-in item GPS Node tracker, so you don't have to necessarily add a mod to achieve that, the game already has items which would facilitate the same result.

Not so much a game breaking bug as a fashion faux paus glitch : With the model update on the Argies, their leg rings float in space in front of them, and no longer appear to be snapped around their ankles.

@PommieGamer So the dino is still there somewhere?? Do you think the Dino traker mod would work for such cases? I don't have a true admin on my server so im terrified of putting a new mod on and it totally crashing and then my whole game be gone.
As it is I added a mod and my game is glitchy so not sure if it is stacking in the list right as is.

@shailiekat if the server reboots then there is nothing you can do, when the server comes back all of that information is lost as it is not persisted. I am working on something which will allow you to track the flyers, until then the best thing to use is simply the vanilla GPS transponder nodes provided by the core game. I always recommend equipping all of your flyers with these so that you can find them if such an event, such as the scenario you describe, occurs.

How bout if you send your flyer home through the homing pigeon... the server reboots.. where did your flyer go?? mine still shows as en route. I'm running basic map the island. Also have another bird out there no idea where. wish it would say where the "Pigeon" is on the map so if they are stuck out there we can go grab them.

@iamcYtrox From the information provided I do not know why. What does the no placement message say? If you don't see a message explaining why you can't place the structure then read the Troubleshooting Guide , specifically the section regarding "Green Ghost Structure".
