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!

    @winnie1000: Go

    Operators automatically have the permission dt.nocost.*, that's why they do not need to pay.
    You can not turn this out except the case you open the jar file (using 7Zip or any similar packaging tool) and edit the plugin.yml inside it.

    You need to change the following paragraph

            default: op


            default: false

    and save the plugin.yml. It will be changed inside the jar file and operators have to pay for actions in DragonTravel.

    @MathyGaming: Go

    • Did you turn costs on in the config? You need to set the options Payment.usePayment and Payment.byEconomy to 'true' (take a look at the wiki)
    • Do the players have op rights? Operators have the dt.* permission by default which means, they have all rights and donot need to pay for anything.
    • Do the players have a permission containing the dt.nocost permission (e.g. dt.* or *)?

    Plzzz Help! I have installed vault and essentials, but when I set the price of a travel, and someone use the travel sign, they don't pay. Is there anyone one who could help me?

    @SimSonic: Go

    No, it isn't, but I could push a commit to update it later today. :)


    I just updated the GitHub repository. Please be aware that I accidently pushed CB 1.8.3 as a lib with it which increases the size of the commit. -.-

    @humanparody: Go

    Could you create a ticket for that? :)
    I'll see if there is a newer version of Factions than the one I developed the current DragonTravel version with. :)

    Hey Phiwa, running into an issue with Faction signs throwing an error (no response in-game). All other signs seem to be functioning properly.

    here's the log, sorry if there is extra info thrown in there, it's just what popped up during the time I clicked the sign once
