93 - Timed Flights

I would like to be able to have unmanned flights execute on a timer. This way I can have dragons appearing to do random flyovers of towns, or castles.

So my thought would be /dt TFlight (NameOfFlight) (NumofTicks)
 Like /dt TFlight FlyOverSpawn 72000 -  To have the flight named "Fly Over Spawn" execute every hour.

Seems like it would be fairly trivial to use the Bukkit event Scheduler to achieve this effect.

    @DrkMatr1984: Go

    A lot of the groundwork has been put in place for this feature during the recent recoding. However, we'd like to get rid of a lot of the current bugs before moving ahead with these new features. :)

    @RonnChyran: Go

    Yeah, that sounds nifty. Like maybe scheduled Dragon Flights that go back and forth between two stations on a timer, and players can right click the dragon when it comes in and climb on the back quick, like riding a bus ;)

    Time Travel takes time!

    I would like to have this feature too as well. Would it be possible to have manned flights execute on a timer as well? Maybe question the user if he wants to take that flight.
