Just a little project started as a small idea from my wife, "I wish I could ride these dolphins."
- Native Minecraft Version:
- Tested Minecraft Versions:
- Source Code:
- Languages Supported:
- English, Customizable
Today, all mobs are ridable and fully controllable with WASD keys. Simply right click on a mob to ride it (with proper permission, of course).
Some mobs have their special abilities mapped to spacebar or mouse clicks (make creepers explode, endermen pickup/place blocks, ghasts shoot fireballs, etc etc). Special actions are added all the time.
Some mobs I'm adding new special abilities (dolphins can spit, phantoms shoot flames, etc)
Perfect for donator perks, or just for some plain server-wide fun.
Do you support MC version X?
I keep getting asked this a lot more than I should be. So, instead of answering it each time to each person that asks, I'll just write it out here and point them to it.
This plugin is version sensitive! This means each release is built against a specific version of Minecraft. Doing things this way goes against the grain of what most other plugin developers are doing, I know, but it helps keep my sanity.
Minecraft is an ever changing beast on its own, each version (sometimes even minor versions) has drastic changes in the code. A plugin like this is only possible by digging deep into that code, far beyond where most other plugins ever dare to go.
To keep giving you guys the best experience possible I simply ignore all legacy versions of Minecraft. This means that when the protocol version bumps I bump with it and drop the previous version. This includes dropping 1.13 in favor of 1.13.1
If you do not update your server to the latest versions with the rest of us then you have made a personal choice to stick to using legacy software. To me, this includes plugins as well. I'm sorry, but I'm not sorry. ^_^
You can find a list of all the previous versions of this plugin at the top of this page (Version History). Just pick one for your minecraft version. Any bugs in those legacy builds will forever remain, such as with all legacy software. I don't backport hotfixes.
If after reading this you still choose to stick with the 1.13 version of minecraft that has hundreds of known bugs (over a hundred which were fixed in 1.13.1) then you will want to use v2.35 of the Ridables plugin (which contains some bugs itself that were fixed in later versions).
If you are using 1.13.1 like a sane person, then you want the latest version of Ridables ^_^ *high five*
Information moved to the wiki
I have a wiki up on my GitHub page. Still a work in progress, but holds most of the goody bits you guys are after, including installation, configuration, permissions, etc:
We're all here to have fun. If you enjoyed this plugin (or didn't) let me know in the reviews! I read every single one, and they really brighten up my day. ^_^
Please do not use the review section for bug reports or asking for support. Use the discussions tab, GitHub issues, or even chat with me on Discord. We cannot hold a conversation in reviews, so nothing ever gets resolved that way. Plus it just makes you look like a dick in front of everyone else.
[1.13.1] Ridables - Ride and control any mob with full WASD control 2.48
Ride and control any mob with full WASD control
Hey you dude, have made an amazing plugin!
I have a slight issue though. I don't know if it is just my server, but people riding animals using this plugin are able to enter entry-deny WorldGuard regions, but cannot when not riding these animals.
I recommend trying to develop some kind of WorldGuard compatibility to ensure that people cannot enter WorldGuard regions using this plugin.
Many thanks again for making this amazing plugin.
Excellent plugin. always dreamed of riding an Enderdragon, now its possible. Thank you so much. Maybe in the description somewhere put that you mount and dismount with same commands as boats and that all the animals have been disabled in the config. Took a little bit to figure that out as I was expecting them all to be enabled.
Amazing resource to have on any server and being able to control the entities is a huge bonus! Developer is fantastic in supporting his work - there is nothing better than someone making sure his customers are 100% satisfied! Thank you Billy - this is awesome! :-)
Typing this from the back of a phantom
Great plugin, one of my most favourite
The only suggestion would be to include some form of instruction on how to set permissions. In the permissions it is set to 'default: op', so what is one required to type in to allow others to ride too?
