Jan 27, 2014Wouldn't mind seeing Gryphons in here, to be honest. If they were added, they'd only spawn in Extreme Hills and would have a nest, possibly with rare ores or a chest full of loot nearby (Due to Gryphons habit of guarding rare things) and one or more eggs. You'd need to kill the gryphon guarding its nest and take the egg and hatch it like you do the Wyvern.Posted in: Minecraft Mods

I just watched an interview with Jeb from a while ago, and it said that no cliched or overused mythological creatures will be added
into minecraft, dragons were an exception, and seeing as there is only one dragon who rules a small island, it apparently didn't count.
However, this was a while ago, just thought i would point it out.
I wouldn't call Gryphons overused....that (DIs)honor belongs to things like Dragons, Elves, Orcs... you get my drift. Comparatively, Gryphons are actually somewhat rare in video games; most fantasy games will have SOME form of dragon in them...the same can't be said for the Gryphon!

I don't really like the idea of this in vanilla.
It is really balanced, and could be put into the game, though I feel that gryphons would not fit the game.
Seconded, you contradict yourself in what you say.

I agree. Anyway this seems to be so rare that it is a waste of coding and memory. No support.

I hope this doesn't sound stupid but i Personally think the griffins should be a bit bigger especially if ur gonna ride them but they don't have to be much bigger maybe just double the size they are in the pic they're pretty big anytime i seen them weather in harry potter or W.o.W
@ Emerald: Are you saying gryphons would be a waste or....???
I agree with you about the size; as a rule of thumb, if you're able to ride it, its at least twice your body weight, if not more, since most animals can't support more than a third their own weight on their backs.So, if a Gryphon was to be able to have a full sized adult human male on its back, and FLY with him, at a minimum, it'd probably have to weigh in the vicinity of around 1000 to 1500 pounds, or more, and likely be at least as tall as a horse at the shoulders, around 4 and a half feet, maybe 5. 6 feet if you want a "King" gryphon breed. and the wingspan would be enormous, at least 30 feet if not more

The gryphon idea is cool,but maybe where a nest is there should be some things around it in the area hinting that there is a nest. like random stone blocks,quartz,leaves,wood anything that hints to a nest
This'd be easier to implement than having dead prey all around.... the thing is though, due to the generation system, often I will find what appear to be artificial terrain features that upon closer inspection are in fact just generated.... I'm unsure how you'd implement "terrain spoor"....

if it's only a "little faster than walking and hard to use" then it's pointless, if it was at least as fast as a horse when flying then all the rest would definitely balance it.
you forget; its flying. thus, all the pesky terrain thats in your travel path, you can fly over. Even if you aren't actually traveling very fast, you'd still be faster than a guy on foot, due to the fact that he has to detour or climb/descend obstacles......

I meant in gameplay terms. And in common sense; since when has a horse gone on a rampage when it's rider takes a fall?
Rampage? never as far as I am aware, unless the horses rider was a **** and treated it wrong. Panicked? On occasion. You are also forgetting the differences between a herbivore that has a herd instinct and a creature thats a carnivore with a pack mentality; if you're a gryphon and the Human who is your Alpha suddenly falls off your back for no reason, you're likely going to be wondering what the hell is going on, and be very angry if anything has happened to him/her....
That and, using the premise that the human in question raised you from the egg, you'd be wondering what happened to Mother/Father....

I support this and tried to use the banner, but it doesn't work instead, it comes up with the banners URL thingamajig but it won't come up with the picture.
As for the gryphons, could we have different types? Like a snow gryphon in the tundra, a mountain gryphon in the mountain and a plains gryphon in the plains. The Plains being most common, while mountain and snow could be rarer. The Plains could look like what you said they would: a typical gryphon. Maybe the mountain could have a sleeker body and different colours: maybe blue tinged feathers. Like half mountain lion/cougar and half some sort of mountain bird. (I don't know, I'm not sure at the moment.). Then the snowy one could be half snow leopard and half tundra bird.
we could expand on this by having different "Breeds".
I'd imagine that other than color differences there would be size differences and other differences ranging from more flight time to more agile to more health.
For example, if you had a Forest Gryphon, it would be smaller, but far more agile ( it'd spend most of its time hunting amongst the trees where it would have to dodge well) than say a Plains Gryphon,. which, not having to be so agile and likely with a larger food supply, would in all likelihood be larger, stronger, but not as fast.

Bit OP and "What else can you do with it?"
A leash could work though. There's been a thread about ropes and how they could work, with discussion on tying up and pulling other players around.
Yanking someone off their high horse (or gryphon) sounds like an entertaining use, though I'd rather not have the mount go completely nuts.
Considering said mount is a carnivore that'd be bigger than you with a really sharp beak and really big talons, I'd say not ing it off or panicking it would be the best; then again, if you think about it, panicking something the size of a Gryphon would be rather difficult. Angering it though, probably not too difficult.

Doesn't seem very original, your just getting the concept of Gryphons and slapping "Dark" "Evil" "Bad"
likewise, this isn't a very good way on making suggestions. Gryphons should be Neutral creatures with no alignment at all. They should be wild, mythical, and tamable animals, not animals of specific alignment.
But again, that's just my two cents.
Depends on what Fantasy series we're taking them from I suppose, but I agree with you, they should be neutral; after all, I very much doubt Mojang would make them full blown NPC's like villagers....

2 words, Red Dragons
The future existence of dragons in the overworld are already planned, and they will surely be tamable and flyable, but extremely rare and difficult to get. The idea of having a bunch of lion eagle hybrids that everyone flies everywhere seems just a little game breaking.
I have my own "Two Words" to add to that; there are two of them. FIrst one is "Not Likely". Second is "Not Soon".
I also see your post and raise it one Minecraft Wiki page; specifically, the page on Red Dragons.
(Redirected from Red dragon)
The Red Dragon is a new mob that is planned to be included sometime in the future. But still, Notch has not hinted an arrival date and Jeb, who is currently in charge of Minecraft development, has not shown much of an interest in adding them.
Originally, Dragons were a possible planned mob hinted at by Notch during the Spider Jockey update. He also mentioned that dragon lairs may be an addition. They remained a potential work-in-progress until the Ender Dragon was announced.
On October 12th 2011 Notch announced Red Dragons "After release, I will totally work on slightly less dangerous dragons that don't destroy terrain and can land and whatnot. They will be red."
On October 12th 2011, in a Reddit post Notch also said. "They will be different dragons. The Ender Dragon will probably become larger, and the ones in the main world will be this size, won't go through terrain, and will be red because dragons are red."
At Minecon 2012, Jeb was asked about Red Dragons. He acknowledges that the Dragon Egg item currently has no use and that it is possible to be used for Red Dragons. He explained that one of the main reasons they are not a high priority to add is because coding them would be difficult. He also makes the example that Ender Dragons fly through terrain as a workaround for the type of coding Red Dragons would require.
I ask you to defer to my knowledge, as I've been keeping a extremely close eye on red dragons ever since news about them came out. Thus far, there has been nothing new for a looooooonnnnngggg time. I would not call the existence of dragons in the Overworld "Planned" anymore than I would call them "Certainly Tameable" and "Flyable".
Also, if you had bothered to read at least SOME of the posts in here, you would see that people have put a IMMENSE amount of thought into gryphons and how they'd be implemented; in contrast, I see little to no thought behind your post. If you want to tell people "It won't work" give us VALID reasons why.
And also, Red dragons would be just as "Game breaking" as you claim Gryphons would be; you'd be able to fly Red Dragons "Everywhere" too, no?
