Dragons are quite amazing creatures, and it would be a shame if there wasn’t a way to bring them to Minecraft. Fortunately, this is now a reality thanks to the Mystic Dragons mod, the only one of its kind.
Designed by thehippomaster21, this is yet another great mod for Minecraft. Dragons are mythical creatures with wings and a usually oversized body. They are also able to fly and spit fire, but unfortunately the latter feature did not make it to the current version of the mod. It may be added in a newer version if possible.
True to its name then, this mod gives you the ability to fly over the Minecraft world. There are minor glitches, since Minecraft was only developed to accommodate the player’s character moving on the ground and not in the air, but flying is still feasible and quite enjoyable too. You can ride your dragon, but you can also target and kill a few in order to obtain swords, which can then be used in combat with mobs.
The mod has many different species of dragons. They are listed below along with their main characteristics.
Blue dragon: Has 12 health points and will habitually assault players if attacked or ridden without being tamed.
Blue dragon E2: Wildlife evolution of the blue dragon and a truly rare creature.
Green dragon: Grassy and sandy landscapes make up its habitat. A little slower to attack compared to the blue dragon, but once it does, it mounts a fierce assault.
White mystic dragon: This one can be flown without being tamed.
Scale sword: Scales are dropped by dragons after their death. You can use them to create a sword.
Right click on your tamed dragon to set aggressive or peaceful behaviour towards other mobs.
The dragon can be fed with raw fish or meat.
To mount a dragon, right click on it with empty hands. Small dragons cannot be ridden.
Detailed information is available in the developer’s readme.
This mod is suitable for Minecraft’s single player mode.
Download and install ModLoader, AudioMod and TurboModel Thingy.
Make a control test by running the game before going to the next steps and ensuring it works. This way you’ll know that if something goes wrong, the mod is the actual culprit.
Download the Dragons mod and drop its zip file in the .minecraft\mods folder. To navigate to this folder, use the ‘run’ option in your start menu, type “\%appdata%\.minecraft\mods “ (without the quotation marks) and click OK. Do not decompress the zip yet.
Extract the ‘resources’ folder contained in the mod’s zip file into the .minecraft folder so that it merges with the already existing .minecraft\resources folder.
Go to your .minecraft\bin folder and open minecraft.jar with WinRar, 7zip or other similar utility.
Drag and drop all contents of your open zip file (except the resources directory) into the open minecraft.jar.
Run minecraft and enjoy flying.
