    Well i found the answer but its rather dissapointing to find the reason behind why dragons can no longer fly/teleport.

    Sorry i wasnt being clear(ill go edit ), i should mention tamed dragons wont fly anymore.
    i noticed this when the GD was introduced,i really like how they fly while fighting or when following you around.

    It is all because they have been trying to fix the issue where flying creatures could enter private houses. Thus far they have

    - Disabled creature teleportation
    - If a creature is flying it can't move within a house
    - Disabled creatures from entering flight mode, but they can still in some instances

    All this to fix something that wasn't a real issue in the first place as long as you put up a wall and some doors instead of leaving your house wide open.

    Devs you guys shoulda just coded the tamed pets same as how they coded players where there is no name on acess/friends list they cant enter? wouldnt that be better soloution than to take away my pets ablility to tele/ fly!

    Did i tell you guys how much i like flying drags yet? hehe REVERT PLEASE!!!!!

    Actually, I've noticed in moving objects around in my house that wall/floor detection is a bit quirky. If I can drop objects from the second floor to the first through a solid floor, might pets be able to pathfind their way down too?

    ( er ... I guess that depends on whether you were referring to truly private houses or private area of a public houses )
     
  8. Are you in 2D or KR?

    In KR there is an option to turn off idle animations. If you have that off, your dragons will not appear to fly anymore.

    thats why i've proposed a sceondary soloution (read my post above),im sure it probably easier to code since the code already exists for players.

    only problem i see with my soloution is if the owners pets have to be acessed or stay outside,but owell if my pet has to stay outside my house then so be it,id rather have my pets tele/flying ability back!

    A dragon that doesnt fly....well is justed not a dragon :<

    If you try KR, you'll get a suprise.

    It's glitched so that dragons flap their wings 24/7.

    I would like my pet to teleport with me. Frustrating that he doesnt since in a lot of places that means that I have to log in and logout to get him. Which is just annoying. I lose all my bars and protection if I have it. I have a pet ball but it is almost useless.
     
  16. I enjoy eating tin foil...

    Forreal! the all come command was one of the most usefull commands for pets with magery,It was good for when pets get stuck,and they get stuck alot! now that command is useless without teleport.

    My Private home set to private should not be exploitable by using bad game mechanics.

    I should not have to double wall any home I build to prevent others from killing me in it.

    *( the design of my home in no way should limit my privacy/security) if set to private.*

    Besides you would have a ton of players complaining if they put teleport back on.

    Its a pain as it is to kill greater dragons without them teleporting on top of you, yay pvp.:)

    That's why i've proposed a secondary soloution. I have never heard of a PVPER complained about the dragons or any other pets ability to teleport.The only complained i've saw is that pets can get into private homes.So please leave the pvp/pvm discussion outta this!

    On a side note i have never seen ANY KIND(including the GD and rune beetle) of pets with magery teleport to thier victim causing overpowerd issues in PVP.

    Please take your dragon or white wyrm to the hedge maze. Tell it to follow you. Then teleport your tamer over a hedge or two.

    Watch closely now as you see that your pet no longer needs the ability to teleport or fly.

    Why? Because it has mysteriously learned as part of the submission process to gracefully step up, on and over hedges, short walls and other similar objects with its magnificent wings neatly tucked close to its body to conserve its strength, while still proudly holding its head erect. Leaving not a single branch trampled in its path, it is truly a sight to behold. Such obedience, speed, and efficiency! How unfortunate that all pets cannot perform such marvels....

    Howcome my dragon just stands there then when i'm going around a corner and not teleport to me like before when i say all come?

    Justed thought of another prime example as to why its not as good as before,have you ever done a champ spawn? when your pet get surrounded by spawn and cant move you could always run away abit and say all come it would teleport to you but now you cant do that which sucks big time!

    Oh....who knows. Last summer, all creatures other than perhaps crimson dragons seemed to lose the ability to land on your head or to jump over fences. Many of them still expend mana casting teleport spell, but to no avail.

    I know I quit asking about it when I realized that perhaps the trade-off for not being able to use the "come" command with my pets that have magery skill was that wild greater dragons would no longer land on top of me while hunting them. As others have pointed out, the change may be a side-effect of changing up the rules to keep pets out of houses where they are unwelcome visitors.

    Double-walling was for preventing Nature's Fury bees from being cast into a house. A single wall is more than enough to prevent creatures from teleporting inside.

    If you design an open air patio then people/creatures can cast on you and there is the small chance a magic caster will teleport inside. Just go inside your house if you are worried about it happening or kill them.

    One post a month about a Reaper getting inside is a lot less than the number of people annoyed that their pets can no longer teleport.

    Oh, so you abuse the private house mechanic to kill creatures?

    No, j.c. I dont abuse creatures/housing.

    I see your very quick to point fingers.

    I used your comments on housing to try to get my point on the board.

    My view simply is if my house privacy is compromised then dragons can continue to walk.

    Guess I never realized when or what broke my dragons ability to come or fly... just noticed that it quit doing it..... infact had a recent conversation with a guildmate about how we used to enjoy seeing them fly.... was one of my delights was to go for a ride with my dragon behind me watching him fly gave me great joy.... *sighs*.... I should hope they could find a "better" fix for the teleportation issue than removing my dragons ability to come when I call or fly....

    Well i do remeber last year for a bit out of knowwhere reapers started teleporting into my old house, I was trying to figure out how they could but IIIIIIIII cannot teliport around housing, why not give the mobs same rules as us, dont disable teliport just nerf it so it does not work around housing of any kind or in a mondain area or in a whole bunch of areas for that matter.

    Wild ceature should not be able to enter a private house seems like a simple fix but then again........


    Speaking of OT when did certain mobs get the triple spell abilty seems an upgrade from the dbl spell abily they picked up bout 8 or 9 years back?

    You mean loads of run-on sentences? Those are my specialty!

    6 and 4 words? Those don't really run on, at least not they way they could if one was into run-on or run-around sentences that don't really have a lot of point except to take up space or make silly points that may or may not be entertaining depending on the mood of the reader at any given point of the early evening in which they find themselves reading neigh-defult threads that seemed to be kept bouncing to the top when people just can't help themselves and make one more little post that makes some quip about a topic already mentioned earlier in this sentence which seems to have run away on me and really needs to stop soon because if it doesn't then I'm never going to get logged back in and do the "chores" and stuff and maybe getting a little hunt or two in for mongbats or maybe something a wee bit higher up the food chain although the little pests do seem to have a fondness for camping on my the front step, not that it really gets in the way much, not like stopping by stratics and getting caught up in writing a sentence that really just don't know when to stop and since its this long already I feel like it should actually come to some exciting conclusion that would make it worth the while of any who is actually still reading at this point long after the original point of starting this has been &[email protected] CARRIER

    Speaking of dragons - I ran across this cute picture and thought some of you might enjoy it, too.
