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!

    @MightyFlyRudy: Go

    Few questions:

    1. Which version of DragonTravel do you use?
    2. Which version of Craftbukkit do you use?
    3. Does it only happen when travelling via signs?
    4. Does it happen for every station or only for specific ones?
    5. How far away from the station do you float (pleae give me the coordinates of the riding player and the ones of the station (x,y and z))?

    If you give me those information, I can try to find the problem. :)

    I'm having a problem now where DragonTravel stations get all glitchy. When using a sign to travel, the Ender dragon will just float in place instead of dismounting the rider. How do I fix this?

    I posted a ticket. The plugin was working fine one day and now it is no longer working with any recent versions.

    @Cherish: Go

    Since I only add new features to the latest versions of DragonTravel and Essentials doesn't provide an official version for Minecraft 1.8, the feature cannot be added at the moment.
    I already added it in the code, so as soon as there is an official Essentials version for Minecraft 1.8, I'll do my best to push out a DragonTravel version with this feature as fast as possible! :)
    Thanks for the great idea!

    Thanks for a great mod!

    If at any point you considered integrating it with Essentials warp points... well it would be really awesome to be able to use those warp points!

    @vncentwu: Go

    Yes, ops and users with the correct permissions do not need to pay. :)
    If you find, it doesn't work, please feel free to tell me, so I can try and fix it.

    @Phiwa: Go

    I think that your plug in is probably working as intended. I looked at your permissions, and it seems like it might be possible that OP's do not need to pay. (Looks like I will have to figure out how to work them new to servers)

    @vncentwu: Go

    As long as you do not use a currency other than resources you do not need any additional plugin. :)
    I fixed a problem about payment by resources some time ago, but it might be there is another problem in it.
    Might be the case it is the same problem as the one about customized items. There was a problem I wasn't able to solve about a year ago and it might be the same problem here.
    I'll take a look at it tomorrow. :)

    @Phiwa: Go

    Sorry about that! Yes, it allows everyone to travel without making payment, regardless of whether the sign says 0.0 or 5.0, etc. No errors occur in the log. Perhaps I need an economy plug in for it work? I do not know if that may be the case, as I wish to use payment by resources (zombie flesh!).
