Mod ID: 1092784125

Fjordur spawn support
All variants have been confirmed to spawn naturally on this map.

Main features
- Three gryphon varieties
- Spawns on all maps (Genesis Part Two to be added once I have time)
- 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?
Not at the moment. This may 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.

could you add, that arctic gryphons can keep warm??? This would be a nice ability for them. Like otters but you need to ride them.

Wait so if I put the mod on my unofficial server, do I need to input the codes into the game Ini? Or is that only for genesis 2?
