Faster Flyers By EddyChomps

Faster Flyers

As the name suggests it's Flyers that are Faster.

Mod ID: 1587391872
Version 1.7

Must be first in mod order.

The Idea behind this mod is to bring back some of the classic awesomeness to making flyers faster, but to prevent them from becoming overpoweringly fast.

Currently this mod includes modifications to the Argentavis, X-Argentavis, Griffin, Pteranodon, Quetz, Tek Quetz, Snow Owl, Lymantria, Pelagornis, Phoenix, X-Tapejara and Tapejara.

Most flyers can level speed but stats are clamped a predetermined percentage. No need to worry about wasting points, as when max level is reached you can no longer add any points to speed.

All of these flyers will no longer take off when mounted. (They stay put on the ground)
Also no more getting thrown off a cliff when you dismount. You just stand up on the dino’s back.

Argy, Snow Owl, and Tapejara now allow use of weapons while mounted.

Almost all can walk backwards on the ground to back out of tight parking spots.

Almost all flyers get some imprinting bonus to speed and some get bonuses to stamina as well. In order to obtain the max intended speed the flyer must have a full imprinting bonus.

The Griffin now has genders and can be bred. (Gives birth to live babies)
There is also a Griffin Saddle craft-able in your inventory. (I do not have a mesh for it)
This Saddle can be disabled via INI. Setting the following to True will remove saddle slot from Griffin

Snow Owl, Pelagornis and Argy can now run on the ground when you are mounted.

The Phoenix now has air braking and backwards flight and is less firery for better visability. (Adding breeding is not something I plan on doing.) Since the Phoenix will only normally spawn on maps with superheat, the normal spawn code will spawn it but will not be visible unless there is a super heat so it may not easily work on many maps, so there is a second spawn code option but they spawn above your head at a random level with the second option.

Lymantria can now be bred.

I have added some more color options for most flyers to spawn in. They are a more rare spawn and at level 100 and up.

Yes I know it has messed a lot of creature mods up and until I get and dev kit update I'm Not sure I can fix it. I know my test server is working but know other are having issues.

Also on another note, a few of my servers using this mod in 1st order keep crashing after this current update

Funny you say that cryptic howl - this is literally the only mod I know that allows flyer speed, but also a cap on a certain speed, any other mod you use would give valid reason to complain because they have no limits whatsoever....I find this mod to be the most balanced in existance

I love this mod however I find flyers get a bit too fast when imprinting them.

They were causing spawn issues so they were removed from the mod. No longer supported but vanilla still spawn.

What do you mean "Wyverns have been permanently removed"?
The support to Wyverns for this mod?
They can no longer spawn in the game?
Which one is it?

Can you please make this mod PAD compatible? (Play As a Dino V2)

I am thinking that one of the latest updates to ark may have screwed something up. I am investigating the issue but as of this far cannot reproduce it.

We're on The Island, we have S+, DinoTracker, Awesome Spyglass, and Awesome Teleporters. Faster Flyers was highest priority.

We are on Ragnarok and we have the SS mod, a stacking mod and meat spoiler mod. I put your mod first on the list as well.
