Permissions | Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

DragonTravel gives players the opportunity to ride dragons in Minecraft.
It offers server-admins the possibility to add a new outstanding way of travel to their servers.

More videos on DragonTravel (including tutorials)


  • Allows admins to set destinations for the dragons.
  • Allows players with the specific permission to summon and mount a dragon and...
    ...fly flights which consists out of waypoints(as many as you like)
    ...fly to destinations which have been set by an admin before.
    ...fly to coordinates chosen via command.
    ...fly to players choosen via command(different permission-nodes for other types of travel).
    ...fly to your faction's home-position (Factions required)
    ...fly to a home-position which has been set by this player earlier.
  • Allows admins to set stations and limit the mounting of dragons to these locations (or a specified radius around it).
  • Possibility to require a special item for players to use the plugin (e.g. a dragon-egg)
  • Making signs which automatically mount a player and bring them to the written destination on the sign.
  • Permissions-Support
  • Support of all Economy-Plugins supported by Vault (Vault is required for that)!
    Admins can set different prices for all ways of travel!
  • Admins can choose in the config whether dragons of this plugin should destroy blocks or if any dragons should break blocks when touching.
  • All messages are fully customizable! Default messages.yml is English, but we provide other language-files in our wiki.

Due to the fact that things can change rapidly in this project, I stopped maintaining instructions on the plugin and other information like a list of commands/permissions in the forums, on this page etc. and decided to create a central location where you can always find all information up-to-date: The DragonTravel-Wiki.

Please use this wiki and report all mistakes you find in there and avoid posting questions on topics like commands/permissions/sign-creation etc., which are answered in the wiki, in the comments.

The questions and requests posted in the comments are repeating and there are some questions we answer at least once per week, so we decided to write down some of those Frequently Asked Questions.
Please read the questions below and see if you can find your question there, this really saves us time we can then spend on the development of DragonTravel.

  • Is it possible to change the speed the dragon's wings are flapping?
  • Is it possible to remove the dragon's health-bar?
  • Is it possible to control the dragon manually?
  • Is it possible to move the rider closer to the dragon to avoid him flying above it?
  • DragonTravel does not start, what can be the problem?

You can find the answers to those questions in the FAQ!

    @Si7VdeR: Go

    Since there is no official version for Minecraft 1.8, there won't be a version of DragonTravel for it soon (correct me if I'm wrong).

    @Demokdawa: Go

    Just for you to know: of course we read your report, but since the future of Bukkit in its current form isn't 100% sure and we are planning on rewriting big parts of DragonTravel to make it somehow platform independent, we are waiting for the first version of Sponge until we rewrite DragonTravel and will of course try to fix the problems occuring when using it with Cauldron. :)

    @luigi_vampa: Go

    Still haven't found, I was not able to reproduce the problem locally because the problem seems to happen 'randomly' and the fact that it only occured once in two weeks shows me that I'll haveto try for quite some time until I can reproduce it and I'd need it to happen for quite some times to be able to find its cause. -.-

    Hello there. Plugin has been perfect for the last few weeks but found it hanging again this morning. Last line in log was /dt travel naboo

    Thanks for the reply Phiwa. No rush, with all the things going on lately I'm sure that's the last of your worries.

    @luigi_vampa: Go

    Just a short feedback. Due to a lack of time, I wasn't able to work on the matter for more then an hour yet and haven't come to a solution. -.-
    I haven't forgotten about you, I'll work on it as soon as possible.
