Port of Animated Feathered Wings by
Original mod based on Animated Dragon Wings by Anton0028
Skyrim SE version of Animated Dragon Wings available here.
HD textures and meshes by Wolflord13.

What's New:
-Full flight with animations available with Flying Mod Overhaul (I have no idea why it took me so long to find it)! Note: This is completely separate mod from Real Flying SE. Real Flying SE is not required for this.
-New optional wing size files. Check them out in the optional files section! Thanks to Turboprinz for the tip on how to make the changes.
-I will no longer be working on the Real Flying Add-on. I couldn't get animations for it to work and the Flying Mod Overhaul already has them. I'll keep it in the optional files for anyone who wants it but highly recommend using Flying Mod Overhaul instead.

Have you ever wanted to play as an angel, divine being, or cross-bred freak of nature?
-Yes: Now you can!
-No: You can still download the mod anyway, if you want...

This mod adds 30 equippable wings and mutagens to the game. Mutagens grant the player a set of wings when consumed and equippable wings apply wings to any character when equipped. The wings are fully animated, have appropriate sound effects, and behave properly when the character sprints, jumps, casts spells, sneaks, swims, etc. Mutagen wings are permanently attached to your character and will only be removed by consuming the craftable "Cure Mutations" potion. Crafted wings stay until you equippable them or consume a "Cure Mutations" potion. There are a few scripted in-game events that remove all magic effects and therefore remove the wings, but they are rare. Changing your race via the race menu or transforming into a vamprire lord or werewolf will also remove the wings. Simply re-equip the wings or consume another mutagen potion to get them back.

In-game effects:
-Appropriate animations for actions such as jumping, swimming, sneaking, attacking, etc.
-Works for all races and genders.
-Works with followers! Just give them a set of equippable wings from your inventory.
-Eliminates all fall damage.
-Increases jump height (requires SKSE64).

There are four styles of wings, each with multiple color variations:
-Old (Standard)
-Soul Hound

How to get the wings (Mutagen):
  1. Craft the desired mutagen at any cooking station.
  2. Consume the potion you just crafted.

How to get the wings (Equippable):
  1. Craft the desired wings at any cooking blacksmith's forge, under the misc category.
  2. Equip the wings you just crafted. Wings equip in slot 47.

Make sure to close any menus and un-pause the game for a few seconds after unequipping/curing a set of wings before equipping/drinking another set or mutagen. Wings may not appear if you don't let the appear or dissapear animations complete before applying another one.

Alternatively, you can use the console if you don't want to gather the desired ingredients to make the wings yourself.
  1. Open the console by pressing "~"
  2. Type in one of the following and hit Enter:
  3. help "mutagen" 4

    help "wings" 4
  4. Look for the wings or mutagen you want. Use the Page Up key if you don't see what you're looking for.
  5. Once you see the item you want, take note of its item ID and enter the following into the console:
  6. player.additem <itemID> 1
  7. Close the console by pressing "~" again.
  8. Equip the wings or consume the mutagen like any other potion.

To create your own jump height boost setting:
Open the mode in the Creation Kit and set _Anton_AnimatedDragonWings_JumpHeight to your desired value. Skyrim default is 76, mod default value is 180, original mod value was 300.

Real Flying Add-on Beta notes (no longer supported, recommend using Flying Mod Overhaul instead):
-Make sure you have the latest version of Real Flying SE. SSE patches break the mod and it must be updated every time the game is.
-You must be in 3rd person to fly properly. This is an issue with Real Flying SE, it is not something I can fix.
-Do not give a Flight Mode item to an NPC. They will not fly and you will be stuck in flight mode until you take it away.
-You don't actually need wings to use Flight Mode. Now you can fly like Superman! (Although there are better mods for that sort of flight out
there). Just be careful about unequipping it at high altitudes if you don't have wings...

NMM: Just download and install.
Manual: Extract files and place in Skyrim SE's Data folder.

-Soft incompatibility with 360 Walk and Run Plus. 360 swimming feature prevents wing swimming animation from looping properly (see the first demo video).
-Possibly incompatible with Animated Fairy Wings SE. (One user has reported issues.)
