What does it do?

  • Changes your speed when flying (with Creative mode)
  • You can change the speed factor, and enable/disable the plugin's features completely
  • Supports permissions
  • Can block a player from flying completely if you want

Why would you want this?

Creative mode flying is ideal for building stuff but quite unhandy if you wish to travel from place to place and it's a long distance, flying can be so slow!! With this plugin it gets lots faster.

Also you can block a player from flying completely. By default players will be allowed to fly but by setting the permission to false for a player, that player won't be able to fly at all!


Just drag the CreativeFlySpeed.jar into your /plugins folder. It's that easy!


  • /flyspeed - In-game help
  • /flyspeed [speed] - Set the speed factor (default is 4)
  • /flyspeed on - Enable the flying speed modifier
  • /flyspeed off - Disable the flying speed modifier (after this you can fly in Creative as normal)

Default settings (at every server startup) are speed 4, and features ON.


You do not need to set permissions to use this plugin!

Do note that OPs always have all permissions!

  • creativeflyspeed.flywithspeed - Allow the player to fly with a speed modifier - default: true
  • creativeflyspeed.setflyspeed - Allow the player to set the flying speed (/flyspeed [speed]) - default: true
  • creativeflyspeed.setonoff - Allow the player to set the flying speed modifier on/off (/flyspeed on and /flyspeed off) - default: true
  • - Allow the player to view help on the CreativeFlySpeed commands - default: true
  • - Allow the player to fly at all (even without a special speed) If you set this to false the player will not be able to fly. - default: true

I'd love to know the following: error log if there is one, plugins you use, CB version, CFS version, do you use permissions?

This plugin uses MCStats to collect information about plugin usage. Of course, this is strictly anonymous, and you can easily opt out via plugins/PluginMetrics/config.yml. The NSA isn't watching your server ;) You can of course see for yourself what data is collected on the MCStats site, just the basic stuff: how many servers, how many players, which Bukkit version, etc.

    Could definitely use a config file. I absolutely do not want this enabled by default, I much prefer the default minecraft flying 90% of the time, I only want to turn this on when I need to quickly move from one area to another or explore the map. So the fact that this gets re-enabled every time I log on is really annoying.

    @Zombiewarz , it's probably something along the lines of the plug-in messing with pre-exisiting files instead of new ones.

    So editing files that won't be removed when you remove the plug-in would probably do that.

    @Scalionm: Go

    CreativeFly, another plugin, has a smooth mechanism for changing fly speed. This one is an older version, but this one has two advantages: it works for vertical speed too, and it can handle any speed.

    Flying with this mode (1.6.2) give me headick, it's not flying, it's jumping from block to another.

    Need something smooth

    I got a bug where I'm always walking around super fast after setting the fly speed and ill keep walking super fast after I uninstall the plugin ...any fixes ?

    I'm looking for a plugin just like this but to slow down, rather than speed up, flying. I want to allow flight on my survival server for building purposes but want to make it painfully slow (horizontally) so that it isn't used for travel.

    Anyway, point being, the plugin is precisely right for what I need but the default speed of 4 is precisely wrong. Any chance of getting that config file working soon? The speed that I need is 0.3

    Try CreativeFly for a smoother fly experience. :)

    flying with this plugin lags like crazy, even when the flying speed is set LOWER than the default, while other flyspeed plugins work fine, so this must be a problem on the plugin-side.
