Dragons are now more realistic, and may be harder to kill.
Some features:

1. Dragons fire breath now lights objects on fire, which can do damage.
2. Dragons frost breath now freezes objects, also doing damage
3. Dragons melee attacks are more realistic(bite does more damage, wings can throw anyone a considerable distance, dragons do more damage on their right side(right handed), and will always try to face the target, and will attack with wings and tail less often)

4. Dragons no longer land unless they have low health or have been hit by dragonrend. -suggested by chad.steel
5. Dragons will not go out of there way to fight you. Actually, they may just watch you cautiously until you get to close. - suggested by chad.steel
6.Dragons take longer to get into the air unless from a perched position
7. The bug where dragons bite throw you has been fixed
8. Dragons can hunt now, and hunting grounds are still being created.
9. Hunting dragons will have many ingredients from the body of creatures it ate
10. Dragons have a more diverse selection of shouts to choose from. They will usually stick to the fire and frost breath as their main attack -suggested by chad.steel
11. Dragons can cooperate, one sometimes on the ground, and one always in the air, fighting side by side -suggested by acidz_reign

and more to come!

Hunting dragons ARE NOT LEVELED!!!!! For you new players, you might have a hard time fighting the dragons. I try to make them Frost or less, but don't wander blindly into a hunting area. Read the list of them below

***Dragon Hunting grounds***

1. Karthspire(1 Blood Dragon)
2. Red Road Pass(2 Frost Dragons)
3. White Watch tower( 2 cooperating dragons)

I'm still making more don't worry

1. If a dragon pushes the player in to water, you will not get like you normally would, leaving you defenseless. You will get up if you hit a rock or land.

2. Some hunting dragons won't give a soul

3. Some named dragons aren't affected by the mod

4.Hunting dragons can be found before the first dragon is killed. New players should get to that quest as quickly as possible and avoid hunting grounds to avoid problems

5. Occasionally, the Dragonrend shout may cause dragons to fly away towards the end of the map. This one needs to be fixed soon.

if any bugs are found that are not listed, please let me know in the comments. Also

**NOTE** I am now deleting any comments about "how can a dragon be realistic?". I explained it to the first person who asked and that's enough. So please don't post those because it will be deleted.

!!!!!PLEASE READ!!!!!

For those of you that do not want the no landing part, then download this instead: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=80708897

It is Realistic Dragons Lite. Dragons will still land like normal in that one, except for Odahviing, who will still fly like in this mod.

Please leave suggestions for updates to make dragons more realistic(I have thought about size, but the animation is screwed up when size is changed).

when i had this mod enabled everything worked fine (as far as i could tell) but whenever i tried to ride a dragon i would get stuck in air rotating around while he flew away. he would still land and i would get off like normal but it is still pretty dumb. :(

The bitethrow "killmove" isnt a bug, Sadly I say no to this cause of that. :(

If it was "realistic", since dragons aren't real, this should remove dragons.

Does this mod take out the dragon kill bite?

Found a bug that causes the player to stay in riding position on the ground instead of riding the dragon, although the dragon was tamed by using the shout.
This leads to the problem of not being able to finish the fight against Miraak in the Add-on Dragonborn.

For something to be Realistic it has to atleast be a real thing!

Was about to get it but the hunting grounds bug kept me from getting it. It would conflict with the alternate beginnings mod. If you fix this let me know so I can share with F&F. ty

Found a bug due to which the last time Alduin can not kill the heroine (the first time you see a scroll on the mountain). Heroes endlessly beat him with swords and the quest has not been continued. Knew you would like me hard from my 80 mods choose the one that caused this bug

Seems to be bugged in two ways.

1. Dragons in melee range one shot me with a bite throw everytime (At full 200+ health, level 38 in almost full heavy sthalrim minus my heavy armour dragon preist mask. All legendary quality some 400+ armour rating)annoying but not a big deal i'm a battlemage I have spells for range.

2.The same reason as the guy below this comment (AscendingDragon) except all dragons take off in the air and i'm left on the ground mime riding.
