It is possible, but extremely complicated. You'd have to redo the skeleton and motions and swap out the tiamat skin. Pretty hard with VRS I would assume, but I've never used it.

Actually, I think all you need for an actual working dragon riding, but very buggy, is just swap the dats. BUT: If you try to dismount the monster you use as the chocobo, you will just be locked in place. I surmise that it's probably cause it can't find the motions used to 'dismount'.

Yah, i tried that with a Behemoth. Funny. But they don't wanna quit playing horsie.

For a truly working dragon that you can ride, it will have to be either a graphical mod to a chocobo, or a total reworking of a dragon to match a chocobo's skeleton.
That is currently beyond my skill and the small time I have even during the summer. (Summer Classes in College & CompTia A+ Cert training :shock: )

Deleting the texture would just make the chocobo a big grey chicken shape, and without a skeleton the dragon wouldn't move.

A wyvern for a chocobo is nice, but riding on a wyrm (like Tiamat or Vrtra) would be sweet. :D

This is just a WIP, as the dragon didn't take the chocobo skeleton too well... you don't want to see it try to move. But, probably after another 50+ hours of messing with it, it could be done. :P
