Ride and control any mob with full WASD control

    Just a little project started as a small idea from my wife, "I wish I could ride these dolphins."

    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. ;)

    Special Thanks To:
    YourKit, makers of the outstanding java profiler, support open source projects of all kinds with their full featured Java and .NET application profilers. We thank them for granting Ridables an OSS license so that we can make our software the best it can be.

    Great plugin, easy to use and permissions are simple enough. That being said, it would be great it there was a allow.ride.all permission :)

    Quite an amazing plugin; especially since it's perfect for VIP perks and still goes along with the EULA. I would definitely recommend! I look forward to the 1.13.2 update. :)

    I will continue to give this resource 5 star with every update because its still ridiculous that its free and being maintained so well. The Developer is fast at answering questions and adding requested features. anyone marking this with a one star is a moron. And absolute necessity for anyone wanting to jazz up their 1.13 server.

    A+ Plugin and Dev support. This guy knows his stuff and is very quick with his responses. The plugin is great. So easy to configure.
    If you have a list of servers that use your plugin, feel free to add mine as I don't plan on removing it anytime soon. ip= GreenGem.Mc.Gg

    The plugin just from the page looks amazing, don't worry about the comment below, since that is a person who just thinks that the review page is where you request help instead of commenting in the discussion page if you have errors, or looking at the documentation that Billy provides.

    I've seen the plugin on Spigot, since July, continuing to grow in ratings, and downloads, and it seems amazing.

    A next idea is "Ridable Blocks", built into another plugin.

      Damn. That sucks, bro. If only there was some documentation that helped install the damned thing, right? Better luck next time, yo.
