Brings back the classic flyers we've all known and love! This mod gives vanilla flyer species back all of their pre-nerf'd stats. Yes, that means they can level speed again.

This mod brings back the original species' stats for the following vanilla dinos (including tames from before the nerf!):
•Wyverns (Fire, Lightning, and Poison only; ice wyverns NOT supported)

This mod gives core-game/vanilla rideable flyers back their original stats by altering their files, therefore it is incompatible with any other mod which also alters vanilla flyers or their eggs, as one will overwrite the other. This mod cannot affect flyers from other mods, only their mod authors can affect them. Other than mods which alter these files, Classic Flyers is fully stackable. It also adds cleanly and removes cleanly, without losing any of your flyers. Please see the FAQ as well as the list of Compatible/Incompatible Mods for more details.

This mod also adds several new quality-of-life features to these fliers including ground attacks, taunt "attacks", backwards walking, and allows wyverns to wear saddle skins. It also adds a new Emote: Pet!, as well as a special Wyvern Stone which wyverns can use for a small armor boost. Please see the Features page for more details.

I want to give a huge thank you to for sponsoring the Classic Flyers' test server[]. If you are looking to set up a new server or are considering switching over, I highly recomend them. My testing server has always run smoothly and I've been very impressed with their automatic mod updater.

If your comments have been removed, it is because you failed to follow mod policy. Read the FAQ before asking questions and post Bug Reports in their proper place.

Thank you.

yea you just spawn them in like cheat gmsummon "Argent_Character_BP_C" 200 the 200 would be the level at witch it would be before it tames so it would be higher after the tame is finished with that command.

gmsummon commands work perfectly fine (when typed in correctly) and the classic versions would be exactly the same as the vanilla versions, because the class names are the same.

just a quick question, i recently stumbled upon "Gmsummon" command which will tame creatures on the sent command, although i noticed it doesn't work for classic flyers/other creature related mods. is there any way of adding gmsummon to the spawn command list or is that not able to be done with mods?

Was hoping to see this mod. XD

Hi desnoyerse Thanks for reading through the FAQ and bringing an original question to the table. I only consider those who ask stuff that's literally a FAQ header or listed elsewhere like Features or on the Desc to be askholes ;)

You're actually reading my mind for something that I've been considering. I've been considering adding that functionality as an option to the Flyer Totem. My cross considerations are pondering any negative repercussions that might add as well as the time involved to make it happen, as well as working out the prob of having the spawned dinos scale with natural server spawn levels.

Hi Ertosi, after playing a while with this mod in my single player, I really like it !
However, I have read your F.A.Q. to not be an "askhole" and I have seen a partial answer to my question, so I will be asking it anyway and hope that you understand why I am asking it. Here it is:

In your F.A.Q. you said you will not make the Wyverns, Griffins (and probably Phoenix) spawning in maps they don't spawn normally in, however, would it be possible to have a variable to allow us to switch it so they spawn (default would be set so they are not spawning, obviously) ?

Again, I hope you understand why I am asking this =) Thank you for this incredible mod once again !
