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 (currently some bug reports concerning them and their eggs)

This mod gives vanilla 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 full 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.

Help Support This Mod
At the request of several fellow ARK survivors, I've set up a Patreon account[] for players who wish to show their support. Please feel free to visit it if you would like to support my future ARK projects, pick up my next pizza or whatever ;)

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.

Have fun and always love your fliers!

So this is an odd bug Ive noticed with this mount. Tamed land mounts, anything that doesn't have movement bonus in air or water, end up going super speed in the water. Our bronto hit the water and shot accross the map.

I believe this to be an issue with this mod as it never happened prior to us installing it on my server. Trying to mess with the config didn't yield any results but if the creator of the mod/anyone tech savvy enough to help recode this issue for us would help me, I would be very appreciative.

@Apex_Raven the "Imprint" Results are managed by Ini for the server
That has nothing to do with the Mod.
We have set the "BabyImprintingStatScaleMultiplier=1" and if we have a full imprinted Wyvern, it has 120% Speed
So if your wyvern has ,or than 120%, this Multiplier is increased by the admin.
That will affect "all" Dinos" and a few Stats.
If you change it "now" this will have also affectet all already imprinted Dinos, cause this will be realtimecalculated
