Description
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.

Great Mod, [...] it made Ark feel right again!

This mod brings back the original species' stats for the following vanilla dinos (including any already tamed!):
  • Argent
  • Harpagornis (aka pre-TLC argent; does not spawn on its own but can be manually added to spawners if you wish.)
  • Moth
  • Pelas
  • Ptero
  • Quetz (including Tek version)
  • Tapejara
  • Wyverns (Fire, Lightning, and Poison only; ice wyverns NOT supported)
  • Griffin
  • Phoenix
  • Rock Drake

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 tamed 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, extra taxidermy poses, 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 https://arkservers.io/ for sponsoring the Classic Flyers' test server[arkservers.net]. If you are looking to set up a new server or are considering switching over, I highly recommend 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!

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

Answers already posted for common questions will not be repeated here or elsewhere.

Asking "hot topic" questions (Extinction, snow owls, ice wyverns, etc) instead of reading the already posted answers will lead to an immediate comments ban.

Thank you.

There will be a small update to CF later tonight to catch it up to the latest version of the DevKit. If you would like to test it early, it is available on the Testing Version of CF available here: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1098223558

Just installed a new Olympus map a few weeks ago... added CF to it of course.

Loved it back when it saved the gameplay of this game, love it even more now!
Game on Ertosi!!

One of my favourite things in ARK is zooming around the map on my Pteri, the faster the better for me. Thank you so much for bringing back my favourite part of the game <3

The other features this mod brings to the table make it even better.

- Pelagornis underwater dive
- Phoenix visible after the heat wave
- Wyvern turn faster
- Harpagornis spawn option (Pre-TLC Argentavis)
- Wyvern and Rock Drake breeding

The Harpagornis should be added to the spawn cycle by default when installing this mod. I think everyone would want both versions of the Argy at the same time.

Anyways, this is 1 of 3 must have mods when playing ARK.
(S+ and resource stacking mods being the other 2)
