Permissions | Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

DISCLAIMER: v01.001.27 has only just released and has a lot of changes in it. Make sure to backup your previous files in case of error when upgrading!

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!

Please read the paragraph above before posting any questions!

    @Phiwa: Go

    Maybe you could spawn an invisible armorstand, and place that inside of the enderdragon's body, and then set the player as riding on the armor stand. (Or the same thing with a minecart?)

    Time Travel takes time!

    @kythuat: Go

    The problem is that we already tried to do that multiple times, but the hitbox of the enderdragon does not allow the player to be nearer, but others players still see you nearer to the dragon than you see yourself when pressing F5 in most cases.
    We should analyze this issue again to see if we find a solution this time.
    I created a ticket so we do not forget it.

    Good plugin :) but it rides on the back dragon look beautiful when I was not hitting F5 repeatedly to see. I hope the update after it is improved posture to suit the dragon

    @ursak: Go

    Ehm...that should not happen... ;)
    Any details? Coordinates you left the first world in and coordinates you joined the second world in or anything similar? Do you have a stacktrace or any other message in log?

    @Kino876: Go

    Thank you. That was the problem. I was wondering wtf. :P

    Just add an extra region around the place where people should be able to travel from and allow mobspawning and give the region a higher priority.
