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!

    @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

    @Phiwa: Go

    No, I did not... I used the item ID (number form)

    @0ct0ber: Go

    Do you have renamed the gold item? Manipulated items cause problems.

  • Avatar of 0ct0ber 0ct0ber Mar 14, 2015 at 02:52 UTC - 0 likes

    I seem to be getting a bug. When I let people use the flight sign, and use an item cost (my server has a physical currency of gold) it doesn't take the item. All perms people have is the permission to use flights.

    @PrimoHighDefinition: Go

    That seems quite strange to me, seems like they switched back the packages.
    Could you try v0.0.1.4 with that build please?

  • Avatar of PrimoHighDefinition PrimoHighDefinition Mar 12, 2015 at 10:30 UTC - 0 likes

    Broken again on newest Build (1.8.3) Here the errorlog at startup: http://pastebin.com/MKwwfnF8

    @PrimoHighDefinition: Go

    I just uploaded v0.0.1.5 which should work with CB 1.8.3-R0.1.

    Since I do not have much time at the moment and I'm really tired right now, I only ran a very basic test (server is starting, travels and flights seem to work). Use this version carefully and report all serious bugs you encounter immediately!

    Apart from that: Enjoy your journey ;)
