Naj's Speedy Flyers UPDATED 11/08

Mod ID: 1083349027

Essentially makes all rideable flyers' speed stat fully customisable, WITHOUT OVERSPAWNING ISSUES!

All aspects of the speed stat modification per level tamed are now adjustable through .INI settings (initial tamed speed, modifier per level tamed, global speed stat modifier and a speed level cap) on all of the Speedy Flyers! Other stats are also modifiable through .INI multipliers. An imprint bonus of max 20% is also taken into account, depending on the imprint quality.

Also reenables backwards walking on the rideable flyers. There are multipliers available to alter the other stats (Health, Stamina, Weight and Melee Damage), without replication issues! As an added bonus, you can .INI adjust the speed and damage values on the Glider Suit as well... Furthermore, this mod provides server admins with the Admin Skiff which is only available by using spawn commands and does not spawn in the wild; It is a modified version of the Tek Hover Skiff which is really fast, can fly underwater and has no inventory or weight restrictions applied.

Currently available blueprints/items:
  • Glider Suit (.ini adjustable speed settings)
  • TEK RockDrake Saddle
  • Griffin Armor Charm
  • Phoenix Armor Charm
  • Wyvern Armor Charm

Currently available rideable flyers that are covered by this mod:

  • SNOW OWL!!!
  • CORRUPTED PTERANODON, ROCKDRAKE & WYVERN!!! (Taming only allowed after .ini option set to True)
  • TLC 2 Argentavis
  • Griffin
  • Quetzalcoatlus
  • Lymantria (Moth)
  • Pelagornis
  • Pteranodon
  • Tapejara
  • Tek Hover Skiff
  • Admin Skiff
  • Rockdrake
  • Phoenix
  • Astrocetus (Space Whale)
  • Fire Wyvern
  • Lightning Wyvern
  • Poison Wyvern
  • Alpha (Mega Fire) Wyvern

For all the features as well as the many options this mod offers I really urge you to take a look at the Mod's guide:

Setting for being able to tame Corrupted Wyverns & Alpha Crystal Wyverns doesnt seem to be working, they always say not tamable. Anyone have any fix?

Mod seems to break rock drakes and prevent them from climbing.
Causes them to climb the air, fold on themselves and teleport around the map.

Any news on an update to the mod to add all the stuff from gen 2 and later DLCs ? :)

Current tames will be affected as well... Check out the guide to learn more, there are some caveats in that regard...

Question, is this like classic flyers, which means any flyers currently owned won't be changed and only new tamed flyers will be upgradable? Classic flyers makes all flyers into modded versions with upgradable speed stats, is this like this? Or will current tames be changed aswell?

oh, before i forget there's some oddity with tek quetzals - imported ones don't display their colours and show as completely default, only SF type display as they should so had to turn off conversion

probably would be a pain to sort it out in the appropriate way, the mod referenced is and it's pretty barebones in effectively going 'this buff sets dino's speed to (wild levels * [config speed %])' and does not apply to unspecified boss mobs (alphas maybe?) but does completely destroy base additive tame speed (poor ankylo) and imprint speed due to being a set rather than an add

that said it's surprising the best that's available in mods tends to be stat redistribution (i.e. inflate hp/melee even harder) rather than speed levels increasing speed and perhaps even oxygen increasing stamina regen like the myth that it did of old/food relative to base increasing regeneration rate and things like that

maybe a pipe dream but for all the wondrous things mods do in fixing wc's wonky gamedesign, 'speed levels matter' is something i've been on the lookout for for ages and that mod is.. close

but not quite

Though I see what you mean now... that would be a huge undertaking and may even prove impossible to pull off the way I implemented the speed stat in the mod. My mod only affects the speed stat after being tamed

RedistWastedSpeedPoints = boolean value, default is False. If set to True, all Flyers will get their untamed points that were applied to their speed stat (and hence be useless) redistributed over the health, stamina, weight and melee damage stats first and alternatively (when those stats are filled up) put into the food and oxygen stats. Make sure you know that this is what you really want for your flyers before you apply this setting, because once the untamed speed stat points are redistributed like this the change cannot be undone!
