Mod ID: 1092784125

Main features
- Three gryphon varieties
- Spawns on all maps (Genesis Part One to be added once available in the dev kit)
- 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.

using the Mod on our Server, we have the problem, that all Gryffs are buggy. Partly they show life 0.0/0.0 and stamina dont get low (visible) and the Griffs fall from heaven.

This mod works. or... at least for me. i can easily spawn Gryphons, and i find them around in the wild. it's not too hard to find the mountain Gryphons, and i can find the two others in the snow biome and swamp biome. i think this mod is great. thank you.

Why do the gryphons stop lvling after a few lvls?

Was an INI ever made to disable leveling of the speed stat?

We're running this mod on The Volcano map, and it works great! It sounds like any spawn issues may be map related.

If all else fails, get the Simple Spawners mod and force the map to spawn these gryphons.
