If you do not mind my asking, what kind of concerns?
It also worked well for pistons.
And something else that I cannot recall at the moment.
But again genius.
To be honest, i don't quite know how to put my answer into words. But if enough time goes by without Mojang taking notice of us (I want to give it atleast a year), i will probably end up asking somebody to turn this into a mod. I've still got a few things planned in the mean time, though =D
Quote from Oventoaster
As an advocate for powered flight, I normally disdain from flight being obtainable from tame-able mobs. However, you do bring up some strong points, so this idea has merit. I've noticed that most flight from a mob suggestions bring up the same arguments for it's inclusion. Here are my rebuttals:
- It is found in the Extreme Hills Biome, making for a treacherous climb!
- Extreme Hills are actually stupidly easy to climb. In fact, since you are so high up anyway, you could easily spot them.
- You must feed it everyday with X and Y food to make it grow up
- None of the other animals do this. Why should this animal be an exception?
- Food is plentiful and renewable for experienced players, so this is a non-issue for them.
- Flight is quite restricted
- There is a fine line when balancing that. Too restrictive, and flight will become useless. Too lenient, and it could become overpowered.
- As a side note - the method at which you control the Gryphon is inside that line, so I approve.
- YOU MUST BOSS DEFEAT
- What if somebody wanted to build a mountainside headquarters? Take note - your suggestion does not have a boss to defeat, so this does not apply to you.
partly suppourt. Perhaps a more difficult method of hatching the egg (a ritual with Redstone?) would better balance the Gryphon. I'm on the fence.
Thank you for your feedback. I appreciate that you have offered constructive criticism in a respectful way, so ty!
I hear what you're saying with your rebuttals, but i have to say something about having to feed your baby Gryphon...
You said that no other animals do this, but when i was playing around with horses in the snapshot, i was feeding baby horses hay and it was making them grow. Now to be fair, that didn't exist when i suggested Gryphons. So it would have actually been an exception, like you said.
Also, the eggs wouldn't hatch on your own. You'd have to incubate them for a couple of in-game days. I was thinking the player would probably place their Gryphon egg on either a dirt or a hay block, and then place a torch directly above it. Or maybe some type of redstone ritual like you said. The player should definitely have to do something to manually hatch it.
Thank you for your support, albeit partial. I hope we can pull you over the fence onto our side!

This is an amazing idea with lots of potential. Hope to see it as a mod of in vanilla minecraft soon. SUPPORT!
Thank you very much!

Quote from Xuarie
Yay! a place where people want to add in Gryphons to minecraft!
I've been floating the suggestion to add gryphons for a long time in the "Mob adding" mods like 'Mo Creatures, but everyone seems to enjoy dragons or dragonesque creatures better.
Heh yeah i've noticed a lot of people really want to see dragons in Minecraft. I love dragons *takes brief glance at his Skyrim map hanging above his computer*, but personally, i don't think they would ever fit into Minecraft as mounts or tamable mobs.
Quote from enemyrush
It would be awesome if they added gryphons. It make fighting the ender dragon easier. They also fit into the game very well.

I can only say this: support.
FREE BUTTER BEYOND THIS POINT.
Thanks! YAY BUTTERRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!! =D
Quote from Howard17
I 100% support this. Very balanced, and if anyone says it has to be even harder to usethen it would be useless to have it. Great idea
Thank you for your support.

Yay! birds! nobody hates birds...
I can't tell if you are being sarcastic or not XD
Quote from DJCubed
I honestly think they should spawn in a rare occasion in extreme hills on the top on a hill, then, you could have a model of sticks and wheat, it would be cool, and also, a mother and a father of the gryphon egg(s) could be watching their eggs and try to attack you. thanks!
These are good suggestions, ty!
Quote from Dwarvenhero81
I have a suggestion:
1. Death Animation:
When a Gryphon dies it will tilt sideways and crash down.
1a. this makes Gryphons are risky choice of mount, basically: Gryphon's life = Your life
2a. however maybe we could suggest parachutes as well (made from feathers maybe?)
2. Beak Dash
The rider can press a special button which will cause the Gryphon to "dash" forward, any entities struck by the beak will be knocked sideways (if hit from the side) or backwards (etc.) damage will be based radius of impact area, health of the Gryphon, etc..
1a. however this will directly affect the Gryphons hunger and consume a large amount of used (to balance it, up for debate)
2a. this could be used for quick escapes, hit and run tactics, etc.
These both make good sense... Ty for your suggestions!
Quote from MasterWeavile898
This is actually quite genius.
It would be more likely to make it in if there were a mod, at least that is what I think.
Hm... I guess it worked out well for horses, but there are many concerns that we have with it being modded.

Oh. My. Gosh. THIS IS SO COOL! I WILL SUPPORT!!! ...how do you support.
Well, I'll just go on reddit and see!
P.S. The valuable blocks should spawn INSIDE the tower.
P.P.S. to u. (As in "You" I HATE it when people say "u" instead of "You"
Thank you for your support and the diamond!
Quote from texTnummbers22
Maybe if it gets hungery and is being ridden it will sometimes change direction and snatch bats out the air.
Haha that would be cool!

If this cannot be added to vanilla, please someone make this into a mod.
Ohhh don't worry. If this doesn't end up in vanilla, we've received many offers for people to mod this for us. Or at the very least, suggest it to someone who might. But i'm pretty hopeful about it's chances in vanilla!

Quote from Pixelpain
Should gryphons be afraid of water? A large body of water i mean.
Hm... I wouldn't think so, due to them being part eagle. I think that maybe you should get dismounted if you fly your Gryphon into water though. It shouldn't let you swim them around.

I think you might need help with your banner. Save the image by right-clicking the banner and saving it to your computer. Go to Imgur and upload it there, take the embed code, and then copy it into your signature to fix it.
Yeah sorry Sylveon, i don't know why it isn't working for you. I've noticed it not working for several people so far... Gl i hope you get it workin. Until then, i added you to the bannerlords list (awhile ago). Jetstream too, of course!
Quote from Lai1999
It has been a long time since I last posted here.
Anyone miss me?
I finally know how to use spoilers
When a Gryphon is tamed, they will change the colour of their feathers, going from Black+Brown of wild Gryphons to Cream+Brown of tamed Gryphons.
I miss anyone that supports Gryphons!

Possibly get ignored for spamming? IDK, it would either be a really good response, or a really bad one.
Seems worth trying though. We should coordinate it properly.
If we did it, we should all tweet the same message (and only once from each of us)
Haha i'm glad i asked first. I definitely wouldn't want to be considered a spammer. My inspiration for the idea was how so many colored glass supporters tweeted dinnerbone/jeb and that ended up getting their attention. I remember seeing a quote from one of them saying something along the lines of how after receiving thousands (he may have been exaggerating) they couldn't help but notice it. Colored glass has been around longer, and understandably has more supporters than us. I was thinking that to compensate for numbers, we would use timing and coordination.
And yeah, if we do end up doing this, we should all say the same thing, like you suggested.
Quote from Jetstream_Xeno
Will we be able to name them using name tags?
I think I would name mine Gilda.
I don't know about if you'd be able to name them with tags... That'd be up to Mojang.
Quote from crono23
This idea is so cute and fun. Supporting now.
(Also brohoof to the 2 people abouve me :3)
Thanks for your support =D
Quote from whiterino16
Guys, we made our first contact with intelligent alien life!
In other words, this is a very good idea. do I need to expialn or not?
Ahahaha that is high praise, indeed. Thank you =D
0I wonder what would happen if we (a group of supporters, bannerlords and myself) did a synchronized tweet at dinnerbone or jeb. Maybe if a bunch of us tweeted at the same time, it might catch their attention.Posted in: Suggestions
We could set a date, giving supporters time to become aware of our plan, and then all tweet within a time frame (perhaps like, 8:00 PM to 9:00 PM) on that given day.

Aye. Maybe a secret room with a simple AND gate for a combination lock. And possibly have the chances of it spawning, say, one in five hundred? As only three Strongholds spawn per world, that would make it rare to the point of finding one would be a hugely epic accomplishment, and give players a reason to search out the the other Strongholds.
Or, every Stronghold could have a hidden alter room, but, in 499/500 cases, a broken egg would be sitting on top, which would be no more than a useless decorative block.
And, perhaps, the alter room could have one or two silverfish spawners guarding it, like the one guarding the End portal?

-Huh, Gryphons in Minecraft. Why not?
-(comes into thread, reads topic sentence) Wow, this is actually pretty cool.
-(ignores the fact it's a Wall-o-Text)
That's basicly how this went for me. XD
I have a few suggestions. No hunger, but health is ok in my book. Yes on the breeding. Most of it I like actually. I support!
Woot! Thanks for your support. I'm glad that is the way it went for you lol =P

You seem to have forgotten that Mojang has a habit of putting popular mods, or part of popular mods, into vanilla MC. And besides, giving them a fully workable model of why your idea is so great is never a bad idea. And besides that, having a mod would spear the word about this idea even more, and allow Mojang to see if it is really popular or not.
Ah... This is true, i suppose. If enough time goes by and Mojang doesn't notice or add Gryphons, then i'll probably end up asking somebody to mod it. But they say that patience is a virtue lol
Would it be interesting if, extremely rarely, if an alter that spawned in a Stronghold or a new generated structure, could have a gryphon egg on it? Sort of a shrine where ancient cultures worshiped gryphon as gods?
Ohhh... I could see that working... Definitely in a Stronghold, assuming that it would be extremely rare, like you said. It should also be hidden. Perhaps in a secret room, or even behind a wall.

You should send a letter to Mojang explaining this idea, kinda like what this guy did: http://www.minecraft...0#entry20391233
Your new avatar literally made me laugh out loud.
Quote from Hexocast
I feel like I should make this a mod! what do you guys think I will add as much suggestions as I can! Hopefully I can do this in a few weeks.
Thanks for your enthusiasm for our idea... But please do not turn it into a mod. I'm sure you would do an excellent job, but we've had many people offer to mod it, or suggest it to Dr. Zhark for Mo' Creatures, and we've said no to all of them as well. So it is nothing personal. We just really want Mojang to add this to vanilla MC, and it being a mod might reduce the chances of that happening.
Quote from EnderLink
So, I like this idea. If they added these, I wouldn't even bother trying to find one, I'd spawn it in plain and simple. But the griffin texture should be changed. Right now it looks like a bird. Also, you're stealing a griffin egg from it's nest, so maybe the MOTHER griffin could defend her baby. I like your flying idea a lot. +1 just for that little bit. Maybe you should have to keep the egg warm? Even if this isn't implemented into vanilla, I'd love to see this as a mod.
Thanks for your support. May i ask what you mean about the texture? Gryphons are half eagle and half lion, moreso eagle than lion, due to the head, the wings and the ability to fly. So it was fully intended to look bird-like, but with the lower torso, back legs and tail of a lion.
But still, it is only concept art. Mojang would have to make their own model and texture when they add this to MC.

I love this idea, and because you actually need to controll the gryphon it makes it Difficult, but awesome.
I can just imagine airial battles with these....
(Oh, and I just tweeted to Jeb_ for you.)
Thanks! And thanks for tweeting!!
I shall refrain from answering, on account that I wish to avoid putting an axe through my computer.

I think my profile picture explains what Mojang does all day.
You know, i had been thinking of doing this awhile back... Maybe i should. Thanks for the advice!
