SPEED STATUS VALUES NOW MODIFIABLE THROUGH .INI SETTINGS (check here for all the .INI settings/options)!
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.

Essentially makes all rideable flyers' speed stat fully customisable, WITHOUT OVERSPAWNING ISSUES! Companion mods that add the exotic Flyers to TheIsland, Abberation, Scorched Earth, Ragnarok and TheCenter maps without tampering with .INI settings are now also available!

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...

Mating and breeding functionality was added to the RockDrake, Griffin and Wyverns (Fire, Lightning, Poison AND Ice) as well. Happy breeding! The Phoenix does also have breeding functionality added, by means of laying Phoenix eggs and hatching them... Griffins give live birth (i.e. do not lay eggs). The Imprint food on the Griffins is Raw Mutton, for the Phoenix it has been set to Moth Kibble and for the RockDrake it is the Nameless Venom. The most optimal taming food for the RockDrakes is the Nameless Venom, for the Wyverns it is the Wyvern Milk or the Argentavis kibble.

A SpeedyFlyers Resource Companion mod is available here, which allows for crafting the necessary resources on the maps where they would normally not be available.

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:
  • MANAGARMR!!! with adjustable number of jumps and stamina costs
  • SNOW OWL!!!
  • CORRUPTED PTERO, ROCKDRAKE & WYVERN!!! taming enabled through .ini
  • TLC 2 Argentavis
  • Rockdrake
  • Phoenix; now supports melting of Scrap Metal into ingots!
  • Griffin
  • Quetzalcoatlus
  • Lymantria (Moth); now supports passive Silk production (as a .ini option)!
  • Pelagornis
  • Pteranodon
  • Tapejara
  • Fire Wyvern
  • Lightning Wyvern
  • Poison Wyvern
  • Alpha (Mega Fire) Wyvern

The way the Flyer classes are now implemented do prevent most overspawning issues, so there is no (need for a) counting and culling mechanism!

For all of the mainstream maps there is also a companion mod which allows for the addition of the exotic Speedy Flyers for that specific map to the map spawners without tampering with .ini settings! You can find the workshop pages for the companion maps here:

TheIsland Companion mod

TheCenter Companion mod

ScorchedEarth Companion mod

Aberration Companion mod

Ragnarok Companion mod

This mod is clean and - for the most part - stackable.

This means that this mod does not modify core game files and the speed leveling ONLY occurs on the Flyers spawned in after the mod was installed OR imported from the Classic Flyers mod (without losing the ability to level up speed! The stats will be different after import though and, because they are not the same class of birds, mating with the wildly spawned (sf) flyers is not possible).

When you uninstall this mod you will lose any flyers that were spawned in 'the wild' by this mod through the map spawners or by using the (sf) spawn codes but you will KEEP the flyers you spawned in using the 'non-sf' (imported) spawn codes in the 'Spawn Codes' section or any of the flyers you imported from the Classic Flyers mod, but they will then obviously no longer be able to level up speed and will get reverted to their vanilla states when you remove the mod. You can, however, then import them back into Classic Flyers or reinstall the mod and regain the option to level up speed, should you want to!

Flyers you spawn in using the other (non-sf) spawn commands or import from the Classic Flyers mod have their mating capabilities enabled as of version 6.0 of this mod, but because they are not compatible with the classes this mod spawns in through the map spawners they are not able to breed with the wildly spawned Speedy Flyers; it may get very confusing so you can enable/disable the mating/breeding of imported flyers through .ini settings if you wish. You can use [Alt-G] (while riding your flyer) to toggle appropriate name suffixes for the wild and imported flyers. Finally, the Ice Wyverns may not be spawnable by using spawn commands without the Ragnarok DLC installed so make sure you add this free DLC to your ARK installation!

The visibility of Phoenixes can be controlled through a .INI setting (see appropriate section) so you can enable or disable the need for superheat condition at will, so the Phoenixes are visible even on maps that don't normally support the superheat conditions after you spawn them in using the provided spawn codes or let them spawn in naturally through the map spawners using one of the Companion Mods (specific to the map you play on).

GameUserSettings.ini options not working

Looking at the ini settings link, I'm assuming that your mod adds all those to the gamerusersettings ini file. Is that correct. I guess I'm really only interested in the rotation settings for the Wyverns. One other question. If I use this and play on a nonded server, Host a game local with my 7 yr old. Do I have to edit his ini as well or will the changes on my ini file affect all on my "server"/host PC? And BTW thank you for this a lot.

I'm just looking for a mod that makes the Wyvern more flyable For instance, make it land when I tell it to land and where I tell it to land. And make it turn better. Will this mod do that?
I know, everyone says Wyvern's are supposed to be that way but I hate it. So I'm trying to make them fun to ride instead of frustrating. I'm just playing casually with my 7 yr old.

Just wanting to know how the progress with the X flyers is going?

Does this mod do anything with the stamina of flyers like classic flyers does

Prevent mating false, I assume this should allow mating but I can not get them to mate anyone had a similar issue and got it to work?

I've been playing with this mod for quite a bit now, and I have to say, this is impressive to say the least. The fact that you haven't abandoned it is also wonderful, and I appreciate that. This is leagues above the Classic Flyers mod. I do want to ask though, once the Tropeognathus is released, will you be giving it the same awesome treatment you've given the other flyers or will that be impossible? Again, spectacular job on this mod, and I hope you keep up the great work!
