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 Flag - Manually send a flyer to a specific flag (can be a Tribe, Allied or a Public Homing Pigeon Flag).
  • 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.
  • Tribe Log support - Homing Pigeon notifications are recorded in the tribe log.
  • Rename Homing Pigeon Flags - 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.
  • Public Homing Pigeon Flags - Public rally points for any tribe's flyers. Cannot be destroyed or damaged.

@CBreezyBruh the mod author would need to follow the steps outlined in the Mod Integrations thread and provide me with the necessary info that I need to be able to integrate Homing Pigeon with that mod. Please pass on that link to the mod author and politely ask them to get in contact with me when they have that info I need.

@Crolya Ah that would explain it, there was a bit of refactoring done in the newest version, so if the server updated and the client didn't (steam can be weird sometimes), then they would have been a mismatch.

Glad to hear it's working, and thank you for the generous donation, that's very kind of you. :steamhappy:

was wondering if maybe you had any plans to make the mod compatible with Ancient Dragons and Wyverns? love the mod idea, especially for that mod, but the two don't seem to be compatible :(

Thanks for the troubleshooting steps. Discovered I was missing the 2/11 updt. Apologies for oversight. This is an awesome mod. Donation incoming.. :)

@Crolya I tested the mod before release and post-release and from memory "Send To Flag..." was working as expected for both dedicated servers and single player. Can you try the following:

1. Un-equip and Re-equip the Leg Ring from the flyer and test again. If that doesn't work, then:

2. Stop server, uninstall (Delete directory '655261420') and re-install the mod files. Start the server and test again. If that doesn't work:

3. Provide me with more details about your setup:
- Are you running single player or a dedicated server?
- What flyer are you using to test?
- What flag are you attempting to send the flyer to? Public? Tribe Owned? Allied Owned?
- What map are running?
- What other mods are you running?

278.1 was released only a couple of hours ago, if there is an issue it is possible that Wildcard may have changed something. I am at work at the moment, so will verify myself when I get home.

Love this mod. It stopped working, however, sending flyers, when the latest ARK mod took place. They can still be recalled to a flag, but the 'send to flag' radial menu option no longer works. pls, pls, pls, fix :)

@Zenphyre sounds like it didn't stand much of a chance even if it were to fight back considering it got killed in the time it took to fly towards you. Bad luck unfortunately.

@pommiegamer yea, I found it stuck because the fliers fly vertically it got stuck on the roof of a cave and I whistled it back towards me which normally cancels the flight to the flag and it was on neutral but unfortunately didn't fight back :(
