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!

    Added the config option and uploaded version :)

    Haha, I'm trying to skin them into some x-wing type shape but it's not going well. Looks like a rusty old bucket falling apart as they move! They've got the sounds done already.

    Awesome work Phiwa, thank you.

    Edit: Maybe add it as a config option. Return to the exact point where the player mounted the dragon or find the nearest block below?

    Can I download and test it now or is it waiting for bukkit staff?

    @luigi_vampa: Go

    Just uploaded a version containing a fix for the problem.
    Sorry for the inconvenience caused by the bug, but to be honest we didn't expect that anyone could run a map without a floor and thought everyone would at least have the bedrock.
    I also never expected dragons in Star Wars. ;)

    @luigi_vampa: Go

    Yes, that's the problem. I'll upload a version with a fix later today.
    DragonTravel searches for any block below the player to ensure the player does not die from fall damage when dismounting. I guess I'll just let him fall in case there is no floor below him. :)

    I'm using a bSpace world that has no floor.

    Thinking about it when I try to tp to a player that is flying through space I get a 'Error: hole in floor' msg. Could that be the issue?

    @luigi_vampa: Go

    Hey mate,

    the problems seems to happen when DragonTravel searches for a save point to dismount a player. Might be the case that an infinite loop occured, but that would be kind of strange since this part of the code didn't change since Alpha
    I'll take another look at it later, do you have a special map or anything else? Something like different coordinates beginning at 256 or any mod doing something like that? :)

    Hello Phiwa, new build was going so well!
    then this happened http://pastebin.com/v7pAUtAu

    Using spigot 1.8 and dt

    There was two players riding the dragons and they were beating their wings at ridiculous speed but moving forward at slower than walking pace.

    @Tareyu: Go

    Did I get you right that it happens when someone is riding a dragon when the server is shut doen?
    I thought I had implemented a dismount in that case. o.O
    I'll take a look at it next week, won't manage it earlier, sorry.

    I have a big bug with Craftbukkit 1.8. When the server restarts, the parameters are not properly backed up. So I took the dragon at the station X and the dragon does not decend to the next station and I'm stuck in the sky above the station
