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!):
•Argent (normal argent only; x version NOT supported)
•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 (normal tapejara only; x version NOT supported)
•Wyverns (Fire, Lightning, and Poison only; ice and crystal wyverns NOT supported)
•Griffin
•Phoenix
Rock Drake (removed in response to Genesis patch, which broke rock drake animation assets)

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.

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.

Additional Information
Admin spawn codes, console commands, server options and more can all be found in the Classic Flyers Mod Guide
