[1.13.2] Ridables - Ride and control any mob with full WASD controls

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?

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:



Source code
Development Builds
Maven Repository
API JavaDocs

Discord/Live Chat


Since I no longer support Spigot or CraftBukkit I feel it would be inappropriate to continue uploading to their resources section.

From here on out all releases will be posted to my GitHub Releases.



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.


Hope this stays updated for future versions of mc I like this plugin

Most definitely. I’ve only not done many releases past few weeks because I’m working on v3 of this plugin :wink:

too bad it doesn’t work on 1.12 so I can’t use it :sob:

That’s a personal choice :stuck_out_tongue: You are more than welcome to update to the latest builds with the rest of us :wink:

yeah then my server would be 10 tps no thanks :smirk:

Why? If you use paper, you shouldn’t have such problems :wink:


Small taste of the upcoming v3.0 :slight_smile:

New config style and options, too.

v3.0-BETA1 has been released in my Discord (linked in first post). \o/

v3.0 is finally released! \o/

Paper 568+ is required for v3.0 (thanks, md_5 for all those NMS remappings)

Remember, this is a big update, so make a backup of your old Ridables data then delete the old data directory in order for the plugin to correctly populate with the new data structure.

I don’t currently have the time (or will power) to properly document everything or the changes. So if you have any questions I can be reached on Discord using the invite link provided up top in the topic.

Spigot and CraftBukkit are no longer supported, either! Which means I can finally stop uploading the plugin to the Spigot resources page. Instead, releases will be posted to GitHub.

The topic up above has been updated to reflect this new information :slight_smile:

That’s all for now \o/~~

Please update it to 1.14.2, I really like this plugin!

Sorry for such a late notice, everyone. Been a little busy all over the place.

Ok, so I’ve ultimately decided to drop this plugin in favor of maintaining it’s features inside a custom fork of Paper. I’ve named this fork, Purpur, and while I don’t really provide support for it I do offer it openly for free to anyone wanting to use it, too.

Purpur is pretty much a drop in replacement for Paper (exact same scenario where Paper is a drop in replacement for Spigot). It provides all the goodie bits Paper does, including all it’s optimizations. It does contain quite a bit of extra goodness, though, at least for me. Things like all the mobs being ridable like from this plugin.

Why did I create Purpur instead of continuing on with this plugin? The reason is simple. I created this plugin for my wife and kids, and maintaining it has eaten up most of my spare time. Its much easier and faster to make these kinds of changes to the game by editing the server jar directly. My family gets the same features, with the added bonus of more me time because I’m not stuck neck deep in plugin code.

Don’t worry, I’m not ditching Paper. Most os my time still gets spent as an active contributor to the Paper project. Purpur was created so I can do the wilder things to the server that don’t fit within the scope of Paper.

If you have any questions or anything I can be reached on Discord (invite link posted above). Replies here may go unnoticed for extended periods of time, so use Discord if you want a timely response :slight_smile:

Thank you all for using and enjoying this plugin. I hope to see you all on Purpur soon
