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 it possible to ad a feutre that the flyers first fly up so they clear some mountains or somethign? my pteranodon was stuck on a mountain wall as he was flying back to my base
this is my new home, with a pigeon, hello pigeon Err ER eR!

This is a great Mod but its causing the birds and other flyers to move forward on their own, when hovering and on the ground, as well as walk like on wander for a short deal of time. I would love it if this issue was fixed, cause i see a huge potential in this Mod.

Nice :) thank you

@Martin yes the mod works with single player. The mod actually prevents stasis on the flyer temporarily when en route itself. Occasionally the flyer will not render in when arriving back at the flag, in that case you simply need to walk up to the flag the flyer arrived at and they will render in. The mod will function as expected when you're not in the area.

Hey just came upon this amazing mod, my question though is does it work on SP? I have the prevent hibernation option on but still will the dinos go back and forth without the player being near the loaded area?

Thanks :) Dimorph squadrons are great when you are farming beaver dams and its far easier to have them follow 1 flyer than to send 21 flyers to where you want them to go

@Moobien And thanks for the support. Glad you are enjoying the mod.
PommieGamer  [author] May 7 @ 6:38pm 
@Moobien there isn't any special treatment for following dinos presently in the mod. The reason you're probably experiencing the "squadron hanging around at high altitudes" is due to them going into stasis while following the Homing Pigeon flyer. I temporarily prevent stasis on the Homing Pigeon flyer while it is en route to its destination, but I don't currently apply the same behaviour to any dinos following it. I think this is a good idea and so I have added it to my developer backlog as a todo item. You can track the status of this proposed enhancement here [].
