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).

    @ItzzBrandon: Go

    This plugin was discontinued a long time ago. Some people have updated it a bit in the comments, but I'm not sure if they still work, and last I checked they were still a bit buggy.

    @BarisOzkaya: Go

    Same thing. There is no longer any official support. You can try to find someone to make their own versions of this or try to tackle it on yourself, but I don't think they can release it on the repo here because the project still belongs to V10lator.

    @stutiguias: Go

    By the way, I just wanted to say that I love the work you're doing with the plugin, but for the safety of my server's map and so no one cheats, I cannot download and use RideThaDragon until the portal and xp bugs are fixed. I am super excited to start using it soon, though, and so are many of my players! :D

    @TheBuffXY: Go

    You can check out stutiguias's GitHub for a latest build of RideThaDragon. Sadly, the main developer has stopped working on it and the other person who updated it in the comments stopped updating, so now stutiguias is updating it, and it works in the latest version, with not too many bugs I don't think. She commented below with some links, so check those out!
