Dragon control

Controlling your dragon is simple: Look in the direction you want it to fly.

Use the sneaking key to toggle the parking brake.

Since v4.0 you can control the dragon with the arrow keys! For that to work the server needs the SpoutPlugin and the player Spoutcraft. Both is completely optional.

Since v5.0 you can let your dragon shoot a fireball with a left click while riding on it.

Dragon inventory

Since v5.0 each dragon has a inventory. To access it simply right click your dragon!

Dragon feeding

To make your dragon temporary faster right click it with a golden apple in your hand. Every apple will give +0.1 speed (max: +1.0 speed).

    Is it possible for the console to spawn dragons in a specific world like /dragon spawn world_nether? I'd like to be able to spawn them without being in the world to create a sort of PvE frenzy world.

    @snitride: Go PermissionsEx uses superPerms as backend. This is what RideThaDragon uses, too. So it should work just fine.

    The dragon won't be controllabla and WorldGuard support should work. Also the next version will have support for BananaRegion.

    If you want to help developing: Read this first!

    Hi there,

    This plugin would be just the right thing for letting players travel on survival servers! WOW! I am using permissionsex 1.1.7 which RideThaDragon doesn't seem to recognise yet :( Therefore i had to switch to op, you can imagine, what happened then... xD Well Worldguard is no use, if you are in op-modus.. Luckily i managed to unmount the dragon before serious harme was done! I can`t wait until this plugin will have a workaround to hinder the dragon destroying everything beneath them and also being able to actually controle them.
