Mod ID: 1092784125

NEW FEATURE: Gryphon nests! These nests allow you to easily hatch gryphon eggs as long as there's a gryphon roosting on it.

Main features
- Adds three species of gryphons, with more to come
- Spawns on all maps (Including Extinction!)
- Armored saddle
- Nest for hatching gryphon eggs
- Speed leveling
- Breeding

The armored saddle, along with the helmet and the legguards, are fully paintable. It is crafted straight from your inventory. Please note that equipping the armor removes the passenger seat; This is intentional due to balancing reasons.

Mountain Gryphons are much like the original Griffins which they replace, living near and on mountains. These gryphons have identical stats compared to the vanilla version and were the first to be added to this mod.

Arctic Gryphons live in snowy regions and possess higher levels of stamina to help them weather the cold, the improved stat countered by a slight health and weight capacity penalty. Naturally, these are found anywhere where there's snow.

Pygmy Gryphons are ferocious cat-sized critters that roam both jungles and swamps in search of prey. Tame them to earn their eternal loyalty, then carry them around! Much smaller than most, though definitely not to be underestimated.

They should normally be found on all maps that feature these biomes, providing they use Island-based spawners.

Note: This is a fully stackable mod. Installing this mod does not affect already tamed Griffins. Removing it will only affect the Gryphons that were added by this mod.

Frequently asked questions

Does this mod work with Classic Flyers?
Yes, it does. You just need to make sure to load this mod before you load Classic Flyers.

Can you make the armor for the vanilla griffin?
The armor attaches to points the vanilla griffin doesn't have, making this impossible.

Is it possible to disable speed leveling through an INI setting?
This will be added in a future update.

Do these mutate?
They certainly do! Just look at the Pygmy Gryphon petting zoo in the screenshot, which involved many hours of hard work by my better half.

What are the dino name tags for these creatures?
"Gryphon" and "SmallGryphon", respectively. Arctic Gryphons and Mountain Gryphons share tags for future cross-breeding experiments.

Is there a way I can stop Mountain Gryphons from spawning? They are replacing crystal gryphons on Crystal Isles on my server. I like the Arctic Gryphons and Pygmies, but I'd like to disable Mountain Gryphons.

Is there a way I can set this mod to not spawn Griffins on the map? I am using ASM so I cannot go through the .ini files and change them, I have to add the line of code into ASM as I understand it. I'd like to take the Griffins to Aberration but I don't really want them flying around in the wild.

This mod is awesome! I love the pygmy gryphon! What, this mod adds two more gryphons? I didn't even notice, I was so busy staring at my adorable tiny gryphon!

How do you get the Gryphon nests to work? I can get the gryphon sitting on the nest, but then what do I do with the egg? I tried just dropping it in the nest but it was still saying too cold. Sorry if this is explained somewhere and I am blind and missed it. Thanks in advance for the help.

remove pygmy gryphon from your shoulder, you need to tap F twice. Pygymy Gryphons tend to spawn in city outskirts down the broken tube that runs along the outskirts of the city. Yes, you can breed gryphons as i've using this mod for a while and having great getting skittle colored gryphons from it. THe gryphon does also show up on the island map, pygmy gryphons tend to show on the western beaches, artic gryphons in the snowy mountains and mountain gryphons are generally found at the tallest mountain. Hope that helps.
