Flyers equipped with the Homing Pigeon Leg Ring will automatically attempt to return to the specified, or the closest Homing Pigeon Flag owned by the tribe, in the event that the rider dies.

Simply place Homing Pigeon Flag(s) to act as rally points for flyers, and equip your flyers with the Homing Pigeon Leg Ring via the costume slot.

Don't forget to drop the mod a like and add it your favorites:

  • Auto-return - Flyer automatically attempts to return to a Tribe Owned Homing Pigeon Flag when its rider is killed.
  • Send to Destination - Manually send a flyer to a specific destination (can be a Tribe, Allied or a Public Homing Pigeon Flag / Mailbox).
  • Recall to Flag - Manually recall a flyer to a specific flag.
  • Set a default return flag per flyer - Either a specific flag, or the closest tribe owned flag to the flyer.
  • Public Homing Pigeon Flags - Public rally points for any tribe's flyers. Cannot be destroyed or damaged.
  • Mailboxes, Letters and Parcels - Send and receive letters and parcels via flyer to the Homing Pigeon Mailbox.
  • Bird Seed - No costume slot? No problem. Feed your flyer who doesn't have a costume slot the Homing Pigeon Bird Seed to add one to them.
  • Tribe Log support - Homing Pigeon notifications are recorded in the tribe log.
  • Rename Homing Pigeon Structures - Handy to know which is which and where your flyer is flying to.
  • Custom Flight Path algorithm - Sends the flyer to a dynamic altitude to mitigate collisions.
  • Custom collision avoidance system - Enabling flyers to navigate around obstacles while on route to destination.

Is there any chance that this awesome mod will get a Fjordur update? I have run it in the past and it works great, but on Fjordur the Argy will not fly up, and will get stuck.

This mod has a great concept, but DONT GET IT! My bird keeps wandering around in one straight direction forever, INCLUDING UP! Thats right, my argy flew straight up and up and up..... and up.... and I cannot fix this no matter how many in game settings I work with. Its a 50 / 50 chance on whether your bird will come back to you or will legit fly into the atmosphere right now, so install at your own risk!
Hi PommieGamer! This is such a brilliant mod! Luv your ideas and how you did them! I just wanted to check to see if it is still actively working before subscribing. I'm not so worried about using the mailbox, as much as I just luv the idea of my Argy Birdy-Boi escaping danger & going home if i die. Thank you so much! I'm on The Island in singleplayer mode.

It does not. The height of Fjordur is much higher, and it causes birds to fly into the ocean or mountainsides. Haven't bothered to try it on Asgard and the other realms within.

Anyone know if this mod works with the new Fjordur map?

Tried this mod and every command made my Snow Owl just fly straight up into the sky for infinity.

I love this mod! Very handy.
Any chance there might be support for Crystal Isles at some point?

I was wondering if this mod is still being updated, the last update was 2 years ago.
