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 your town's spawn (Towny 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!

    @Silarn: Go

    and where is there a link to the rb r7 build? because i've replaced the plugin.yml with the file from the link below and it still does not work.

    internal error every time you try and mount or travel with a dragon.

    @Silarn: Go

    there is no RB for bukkit/minecraft 1.2 yet.

    and being dev builds, even tho this had been updated for 1.2, there is no guarantee it wont break or that some gamecrashing bug appears. usually it's fine, just no guarantees

    @jbarrett98121: Go

    2.3 should work as-is for the 1.1 RB R7 (you have to get this from the forums).

    2.3 will also work on R6 if you use my modified plugin.yml below.

    2.4 should work on all 1.2.3 dev builds AFAIK.

    @cvxx7q: Go

    No RB for what? There are two working RBs for 1.1 - R6 and R7 (which works with poorly written plugin.ymls).

    And 2.4 works on 1.2.3 dev builds.

    @jbarrett98121: Go

    because there's no RB... everything is experimental until further notice

    you guys are one of the last ones to update

  • Avatar of Silarn Silarn Mar 03, 2012 at 16:31 UTC - 0 likes

    As I said, others have discovered this has to do with how the plugin.yml is written.

    I changed some elements in the DragonTravel yml around and it now works fine.

    The modified yml is pasted here.

    You want to use this in 2.3 for R6 servers, however it will also work in 2.4 but dragons will not travel properly unless you are using a 1.2.3 dev build.

    @Silarn: Go

    This has nothing to do with the event system at all, even 2.2 uses that "new" system. Bukkit broke several plugins with R6 and I do not know the error respectively how to fix it. The error in the console showing up does not even make any refference to our plugin, so I can't even identify the error causing code. And I think it is time that Phiwa also can contribute something on this project by fixing it,

    @XemsDoom: Go

    Other than the fact that it's the current RB and the RB for 1.2.3 is probably not going to happen soon? Only one other plugin out of several dozen does not work on R6. (Of those updated to the new event system.)

    @Silarn: Go

    R6 is everything else than a recommanded build, it breaks too much. Version 2.4 works great on Minecraft 1.2 builds. Do not use 2.3 on R6 Builds, there aren't good reasons to use it anyways.
