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 your town's spawn (Towny 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!

    Hey Noobcrafter,

    first of all thanks for youe feedback!

    Regarding your first point: I know about this problem and it is on my to do list, but it is not that easy to fix.

    Regarding your second point: If you create a ticket for that, I'll see what I can do as soon as I find some time. ;)

    This plugin is ABSOLUTELY beautiful! Exactly what I was looking for in creating my World of Warcraft esque server. I only wish I had read the commands yesterday as I just spent hours trying to spawn noAI Edragons but was getting frustrated with their rotations and non flapping wings.

    I give it a 9 out of 10.

    Reasons not full 10:

    1. 1 I'd like to use flights instead of travel but the dragons orientation never directly follows path direction. Especially noticeable if trying to create ascending or descending spirals within a limited area, like off a tower or flying into a city.
    1. 2 While travel is nice in that it doesn't have the problem of flights with dragon orientation, the dragon always stays at travel height until directly above station then nose dives. Would be nice if there was a descent radius in config i.e. I have my height set at 150 to avoid mountains. It would be nice to set descent radius to 150 or say 120 and when you're that many blocks from destination station you begin a soft descent.

    Other than those 2 things it's literally perfect.

    @Layania: Go

    New version working with CB 1.10-R0.1 has been released, only waiting for approval. Please report bugs you find using the ticket system.


    But how are the "layers" done? Is it just one Minecraft world with some kind of ceiling at height 100 or how do you do that? Because DragonTravel can only handle different worlds if you just use the normal Minecraft world mechanics (e.g. the worlds nether, world, end or other worlds created with plugins like MultiVerse or similar). If you are using different mechanics, DT we will have a problem handling them.

    <<reply 2822935>>

    In 1 world. But the map is massive so its split into layers.

    The layers you describe are all in one world? Or are they set up in different worlds?

  • Avatar of SKILLMODS SKILLMODS Jun 05, 2016 at 15:48 UTC - 0 likes

    I am currently experiencing an issue with Dragon Travel with layers. Essentially my world consist of multiple different layers/regions and when im in a layer and try to fly to another one it can't find the correct location. For example I started in a layer and set a station, about 500 blocks above in another layer I tried to travel to the station in the other layer and it just flew up and was unable to find the correct area. It should have flown down, to my understanding the plugin was trying to find those cords within the same layer and not checking in other layers where the station was actually set.

    Just wondering if there is anyway to make it check for different layers of the world or even if its possible to get an updated version to allow this to be possible.

    @xH3LLRAIZ3Rx: Go

    Yes, the dragon travels some way towards those coordinates and is then teleported to the nether where is moves to the exact location and dismounts the rider. That's what it should behave like and that is what it behaved like when I tested it. :)

    @HarryJamesD: Go

    Not really, I was not able to reproduce the problem yet. Could you give me the exact coordinates (including the decimals where you get stuck? I need them as exact as possible (e.g. x=536.6447857, y=642.8903769, z=57.2527063).
