Enderdragons Plus


The plugin controls the spawning of Enderdragons. It fixes the feature that Enderdragons will always fly to the point 0,70,0 if they have no target. It also gives the dragons a home position, where it will return, if he flies to far away.

The Plugin will replace all dragons witch are spawned by these dragons. (except they are not of class: net.minecraft.server.EntityEnderdragon). It is compatible with DragonTravel. It is compatible with RideThaDragon.

There are multiple possibility to configure Dragons. Also there is the possibility to have different Dragon types (different Ages of Dragons) on the Server (see the section Dragon Ages).

Also you can ride dragons with this plugin and fire fireballs while riding (pure Awsomeness)!!

IMPORTANT! This will only work with CraftBukkit!!! (Tested with Version 1.7.2 R0.1) All other Bukkit Implementation and Versions can work, but it is not guaranteed.

The Configuration is mostly good documented (config.yml).

Dragon Ages

There is another configuration. The Dragon ages located in the ageTable.yml.

Different Dragons with different ages can be spawned. This makes it possible to have different difficulties (like: small, normal, hard, etc.). For further information and syntax look at: Dragon Ages.

If you want to help me by donating, this would be great! This Project consumes a lot of time. The changes the bukkit Team / Mojang do are not always that fine to look through. Donating always motivates to do more/better work ;) . The link is on the top right!

I need some 'Beta testing people' to help me find bugs to already existing stuff. :/ can't do coding + testing at once (unfortunately I only have 2 arms...).
