Small Dragons 2.0 (Un-Official)

----Introducing, Small Dragons 2.0 (Un-Official)----

NEW! Small Dragons can now dive like the Griffin, simply go up in the air and point straight down to dive. Diving straight into the ground will create a great explosion.



Yes, they are back, and they are just like the old ones, but better!

Don't Forget to Rate, and Favorite!!!

Note: This is meant to be balanced for vanilla, if you want to use it for modded, you're gonna have to use stat multipliers on your server.

Our old favourites the Small Dragons are back, and they are just like the original!
Took a while to make, but it's finally out. If you were a fan of Small Dragons before it broke in the workshop, then this mod is for you!
This mod is not official, since i'm not the creator of the original mod.

----More about the mod:

Well, the new Small Dragon has almost the exact same color regions as the old one, almost the same stats and balancing, similar control and movement, diving and strafing, and some other things. I've compared from experience and videos to make it be just like the original Small Dragons. It also has a new range of saddles and armors to wear.

Small Dragons now have a multitude of uses, they can harvest Stone, Thatch and Wood, and have weight reduction for those materials, along with raw Metal. They are excellent for weight and transport, as they can carry creatures just the same as the Quetzal.

They are also capable of having babies, and getting mutations.

It also has the same attacks as the old one, along with a few new ones (Read below). Some of the old annoying things that the old Small Dragon had has also been fixed, such as loud footstep sounds, and the weird looks when using the firebreath while running.

----What attacks does it have?:

-Left Click: Bite attack, damages creatures and structures.

-Right Click: Firebreath, can be used in the air and on the ground.

-C button: On the ground, it does a wing attack similar to the Wyvern. Harvests wood and thatch from trees, and pushes creatures away. In the air, it performes a pick-up which can carry every dino that the Quetzal or Wyvern can carry.

-X button: Claw attack, which can harvest stone while on the ground.

-Ctrl button: Does a roar, it's awesome.

Small Dragons spawn in the mountains, and on Dead Island. That means, on The Island, Scorched Earth, Ragnarok, The Center, Crystal Isles, Shigo Islands, and any other map that has mountains, or a carnivore island-like place. On Extinction they spawn in the desert area, and also in the deep ravine next to the city (The place that has a lot of Kapros and Sarcos)

There's two new saddles, one that is a Passenger saddle with 2 more seats for friends, and a One-seater version for one player. There is also a Chitin armor for it, yes, Dragon armor, not just a helmet this time ;)
Armor and saddles are crafted in the inventory!

Saddles and the armor can be colorized, and have their own custom icons and looks.

They are tamed just like the old ones, you knock them out and feed them meat. Their prefered kibble is Rex. Amount of tranqualizers varies, it should be around the same level as a Rex, but they have more resistance to damage, so i'd say about 50% more tranqs as an equally leveled Rex.

(Psst! Quick tip! Aim for the head, it does 3x the damage/torpor!)

Hello; Since the new kibbles are here, what does it takes to tame a dragon? exceptional like a rex?

@Zergkaninchen Melee plays a role in the fire breath damage, just like it does with wyvern breath attacks.
Zergkaninchen Mar 9 @ 2:41pm 
Hi, how is fire breath damage determined? Is it only by level or is it also influenced by the melee damage stat (or oxygen)?
tatianyi Feb 15 @ 3:37am 
the dragon can get burned when they are touching that a bug?
hotbread100 Feb 2 @ 10:33am 
i was wondering what might affect the small dragons like bear traps and if they are able to damage structures past wood(i tame with stone gates a lot)

@Trollphan, no problem its all good. I wonder how Shadlos did it back then since you do bring up a good point. Also my Dragon went from 100k hp to 300k hp LOL, man I feel like thats super overpowered. Ill take it though, thanks for the reply!

I have been thinking about that, but, what if you're stuck on a cliff or something, wouldn't you want the Dragon to fly up to you? Wouldn't work if it was only able to follow you on the ground. Plus, there is no flyer who can follow on foot, so i don't know how to implement it.

Yes, newest patch notes.

"-Changed stat per level for tamed Dragons, health ammount per level increased, same with stamina, melee, and speed. "

Now you get more HP per level, it felt too little before. That's why your stats have been increased.
