[WIP] More Saddle Options 4
"So here is a wip shot of my Raptor Hunting Saddle, it has a dead purlovia, fish, antlers and a dead dodo (on other side). I am not happy with the bridle and reins so those will be edited alot more. It has a sort of "battle harness" which will have some spikes I think to help protect the Raptor when hunting, I will also have a version without a saddle seat that you can then put on the rest of your Raptor pack.

The dead purlovia may or may not stay, I will be trying other animal options it was just the right size for testing.

Check my artwork section for more WIP shots.

Also thumbs up and comments are great, it helps me tell if I am going in the right direction or not.
PS the mod is not out yet, its still WIP. ;)"

I have been really taking my time on the Raptor bridle, the vanilla version is a pretty big mess the bit is made of leather and its not even in the Raptor's mouth instead it clips through the jaw. Plus the reins are pretty sad they dont make sense as they are attached to the saddle where its hard to reach them.

But now I am super happy with how it turned out, the reins look great and move great. Raptor is a pretty important dino imo so I wanted it to make sure it turned out right. Now I can move onto finishing the harness parts.

Well, what about a Mesopithecus?

Voodoo I was actually planning a wood platform saddle lol. I have it all sketched out for the Paracer atm, it will depend on if I can get it balanced well in the Devkit.

Birdskull: I thought about the poor Otter but I just couldnt bring myself to do it yet lol, they are so cute... ;_;

TWC35GA: I am hoping to give the older dinos some love for sure first and then move on to some more of the newer ones. Poor Mammoths really need a pick me up imo.

This is a great idea have been looking for a saddle mod. As others have said, hope to see other dino saddles and do have one sugestion a lower lvl platform saddle more primitve made out of wood and other such resorces. Again great mod idea!

@nivea hey just a suggestion, if you've still got the purlovia on there. It doesn't make a lot of sense due to its size. People'll hate me for suggesting this, but what if you put a couple otter skins on the back?
The dossier does say they are hunted for their furs.

Looks very good. I hope to see this mod soon, as I plan on adding it to my server. I do hope you have plans to add it to all or at least the classic Dinos.

Thanks you all, It is a upcoming mod and once I finish the Raptor saddles I will begin to get it ready for release. The saddles still needs work though so not ready for that stage just yet. :)

xXFangedEyesXx: Yeah I think they are cute (when you know not scareing the heck out of me randomly..) so there will be a version without the game animals on it and instead it has a large amount pelts. lol
