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 any already tamed!):
•Harpagornis (aka pre-TLC argent; does not spawn on its own but can be manually added to spawners if you wish.)
•Wyverns (Fire, Lightning, and Poison only; ice wyverns NOT supported)
•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, 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.

Mod Policy
•Updates can be seen in the "Change Notes" tab.
•This mod is made to work with the core game and not around other mods. Do not use this mod with other mods which also alter the files of the vanilla flyers or their eggs. See the list of Compatible/Incompatible Mods for more info.
•Don't be an askhole. Please read this mod's FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) before posting questions or comments and use the appropriate Discussion pages for posting Bug Reports, reporting Compatible/Incompatible Mods, or Server Advertisements.
•No requests. Consider this mod as-is and exactly how I want it.
•This mod updates on Thursdays and may have multiple updates each Thursday. Critical bug fixes or responses to Vanilla changes may alter this schedule.
•As the mod author, my contribution ends at ensuring the mod works in general. It is not my job to provide tech support for every user who has trouble installing mods or updates on their end. Kindly refer to Google or the ARK Forums for installation/update issues.
•Posts which fail to follow this policy or which fail to show common courtesy will be deleted without notice.

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 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!

Update is beautifull. I can fully use my argentavis again. Good going ^_^ Epic mod now 100%

Today's update's changes can be seen in the Change Notes tab and everything is looking good in-game in all game modes.

[As with all updates, there will always be a few users who run into trouble installing the update. If this happens to be you, hit up Google for how to perform a clean mod install. Still have trouble, then do it again, but do it manually - don't trust your auto-updater.]

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.

And as a reminder, user-side issues are exactly that. Please hit the main ARK forums or Google for answers on how to fix.

Thank you.

Hmm I was thinking of getting this, till I saw the thing about Argent not pickng up the Doeds and Anyklos. That was a great thing they did with the Argent TLC! But Im glad to see its getting fixed in next weeks patch, so I will wait til lthen to pick it up =P As Im using my Argent to fly my big ol spikey girl around to mine metals and such in SP =X Sweet mod though all together.
