    Command Summary (open)

    • /mob go <north/south/northeast etc> [distance] - Instructs the mob you are riding to start moving in the given direction. If a distance is supplied, it will walk that far and then stop (maximum distance is 250 blocks).
    • /mob goto <player name/entityID/mob name> - Instructs your mob to go to the specified player (no matter how far away they are).
    • /mob goto <X> <Z> - Mob will go to the specified coordinate
    • /mob attack <player name/entityID/mob name> - Commands your mob to move to and attack the given player/entity. If the mob is a friendly animal, this will make it follow you around (forever). (You can find out the entity ID of an entity by pressing f3 and noting the number above the entity's head.)
    • /mob follow <player name/entityID/mob name> - Commands your mob to follow the player/entity around (until you unmount)
    • /mob stop - Commands your mob to stop everything it's doing.

    Thanks for forking this.

    Considering this is one of those plugins where a description is short and sweet "a plugin for riding and controlling mobs", I thought a video description was appropriate. However, putting them in spoiler tags does look nicer. Thanks for the suggestion.

    Kainzo, can you identify the cause of that warning? Any idea who was doing what when that happened?
  9. Offline


    Very nice idea, I will try this
  10. Same spam here as Kainzo has, nothing was happening, it started right after loading this.

    Just got proper MASSIVE spam with this, when someone was riding a Wolf to test.

    When I try to mount something it says that I dont have permission to mount mobs. What do I do?

    0.35 released.

    The warning reported above should be fixed now. If you see any text being emitted from MobRider to the console, please report it with as much detail as possible about what was happening at the time. One thing that I know doesn't work correctly is feeding the mobs. I'll fix that in the next release.

    Giving it another test.

    Hey ive got a problem... whenever i type a /command such as /mob goto bob it doesnt do anything whatsoever
  17. Offline


    I've not yet tested goto, follow, attack, mount, or unmount. However, remember that you must be mounted on a mob for the /mob commands to do anything. I've updated the command handler to give appropriate feedback to the user; it will be in the next release.

    Can you control them using wasd? And is there permission to only ride certain mobs.
  19. Offline


    You cannot control them using wasd. The permission nodes are currently pretty broad; I have no problem adding them at a more granular level.

    MUCH support for you continuing this.

    It's absolutely wonderful to be able to vanish and sit AFK on a guy's head instead of staring at a wall. But that's just my usage XD

    My players have asked if this was returning and now I can say it's now possible again. Thank you :D

    LOL MobRider... a little too much vulgarity for a kids game >.>?
  22. Offline


    Haha, you can even ride other players! XD
  23. .....what, you manage to find offense somehow in Riding Mobs? Dear lord.
    KoryuObihiro and Mentioum like this.

    Please make it so people can only ride certain animals, I want to make it so players can only ride other players... bookmarked, but not installed.

    Then don't grant them the permission nodes....

    I dont believe this needs much more configurations...
  26. Offline


    The only configuration options I plan to implement will be through permission nodes, extending existing ones as much as possible.

    Development plans:
    • Add more granular permissions for mounting. Add range permission to be used by goto/follow/attack.
    • Add relative mob movement commands.

    For example in a future vesion, mobRider.animals.sheep would only allow riding of sheep. mobRider.players.PoorVictim would only allow riding of the player named PoorVictim.

    To take care of Psycho Robot's range request, I plan on adding mobRider.range. If you don't have the permission, if you have mobRider.range, or if you have mobRider.range.*, you have unlimited range. If you have mobRider.range.50, you can only goto, attack, and follow players and mobs that are within 50 blocks of you. The number at the end can be anything, so you can easily give different ranges to different groups.

    For relative mob controls, I plan on adding /mob turn <degrees>, where degrees must be a multiple of 45. This will allow users to use a macro program to 'drive' their mobs via a different set of keys. Personally, I was planning on using the numpad.

    Any objections to removing /mob mount and /mob unmount? As far as I can tell, it doesn't really serve any practical purpose.

    hey just a quick question, do the mob commands work? like /goto xyz, /goto player ect.
  28. Offline


    yes they have done for a long time so unless they have been broken recently (i dont think the have) then yes it does. It also supports /follow <player> although it tends to spam the console....
  29. Offline


    Please report any console spam you get, along with what was happening at the time it occurred and any guesses you might have of the cause. The current version of MobRider should not be spamming the console.

    I havent updated to the most recent version. I'm waiting to get all my other plugins stable before I add donator related features (mobrider is one) on my server. Sorry I should have clarified that I hadn't used the most recent version.

    Thanks for taking this one on board btw.
