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!

    Okay ;)
    Other players do not see you floating as far above the dragon as you see yourself.

    Hey Layania, sorry for the late response. I think there really is a problem regarding the message file.
    There is a temporary fix for it, described in this ticket. cleargyman48 fixed it for himself. :)

    @phentop: Go

    The problem is that DragonTravel uses permissions to allow some users to use specific features of the plugin and deny the use of it to other users.
    By default, no user is allowed to use the plugin except the users which are operators (ops) on your server. To allow other users than operators to use the plugin, you need to use a plugin like PermissionsEx.
    Operators automatically have the permission to use all features of the plugin, they have the permission "dt.*".
    Take a look at the DragonTravel-Wiki for a list of available permissions.

    I'm having an issue with the plugin. My players cannot click any signs that I have made. The admins have no issues. The players get the mssg: "You don't have permission to use this." I'm unsure what I'm missing.

    This is my config:

    1. <<< Choose which dragon-entities can't destroy blocks >>> File: Version: 0.5 AntiGriefDragons: bypassWorldGuardAntiSpawn: true ofDragonTravel: false all: true Language: en DragonSpeed: 1.0 DragonLimit: -1 MaxTravelDistance: -1 TeleportToStartOnDismount: true VulnerableRiders: true CommandPrevent: - /spawn - /f - /kill - /home - /tp RandomDest: Name: _random_ Limits: X-Axis: Min: -100 Max: 100 Z-Axis: Min: -100 Max: 100 MountingLimit: EnableForTravels: false EnableForFlights: false Radius: 5 ExcludeSigns: true Payment: usePayment: false byResources: false byEconomy: true Economy: Prices: toStation: 10.0 toRandom: 10.0 toPlayer: 10.0 toCoordinates: 10.0 toHome: 10.0 toFactionhome: 10.0 setHome: 10.0 Flight: 10.0 Resources: Item: 371 Prices: toStation: 5 toRandom: 5 toPlayer: 5 toCoordinates: 5 toHome: 5 toFactionhome: 5 setHome: 5 Flight: 5 TravelHeight: 150 RequiredItem: Item: 122 For: toStation: false toRandom: false toPlayer: false toCoordinates: false toFactionhome: false toHome: false Flight: false OnlySigns: true PToggleDefault: false DismountAtExactLocation: false MinimumMountHeight: -1 DamageCooldown: -1

    Any help is appreciated. We love the plugin as the admins - since it works for us.
