(I tried to make this the least Wall-of-Text I could, but it was kind of difficult. It’s still good though.)

So, we have a few mount in the game now, and they all have their unique ways of getting us around. However, I think that these could still be expanded in, so I introduce the Ostrich Mount!

The Ostrich is summoned with the giant egg (

) that has a 1/75 chance to drop from any surface desert enemy (still unsure about this, leave me some ideas in the comments.) When the player is riding the Ostrich, it will go at a maximum speed of 30 MPH, but can be affected by any speed-increasing accessories, making it useful for fast transport. When jumping, it will fly for about 20 blocks, but only about 5 off the ground, since Ostriches can’t actually fly. (Additionally, the Ostrich will stick its head in the ground when staying still for a long time.)

Thanks for reading this suggestion! Let me know what you think in the comments!

Nicely done, especially the sprites!

Seems pretty balanced for it's abilities. For an ostrich, it certainly can run like a mad man. (I assume this can be obtained pre-hardmode, correct?)

I really like this idea and fully support it. Though, maybe it should be a 1/100 drop chance, as that would slightly reduce the rick of players getting annoyed at having a bunch of excess Ostrich Eggs. Or at least round it to 1/75.
