    Rather, they simply can't pass through.

    I know notch was too lazy to do this, but after seeing that you can make fireballs destroy blocks in the same way dragons do (yay meteors) I figured it might be fun to have a way for dragons to NOT horrifically ruin your terrain.

    If no-one does this, I'll do it myself eventually, I'm just a little busy atm :3

    Ok let me do this in a few minutes

    Code:
    public class main extends JavaPlugin implements Listener{
    @Override
    public void onEnable() {
    getServer().getPluginManager().registerEvents(this, this);
    }
    @EventHandler
    public void dr (EntityExplodeEvent e) {
    if(e.getEntity() instanceof EnderDragon) {
    e.setCancelled(true);
    }}}

    If a dragon runs through a block, cancel the event and move him to the opposite position.

    I still plan on doing this in 10 lines, I'm still working on homework (I took about a 4 hours break cleaning the house x.x) so I'll get to it sooner or later.

    I was thinking more of rewriting the move method of the dragon to give them the ability to "nest" on blocks.
    See the tutorial on overriding mob behaviour.

    Well, you can't exactly do that in 10 lines, can you?

    Without an entityMoveEvent this has got to be alot harder that it sounds.
    I remeber a plugin in which you could ride a dragon to a set location, maybe its worth looking that up and checking out the code. Im sure the dragon would avoid mountains and stuff in the way.

    EDIT: here it is http://dev.bukkit.org/server-mods/dragontravel/

    Since the player is riding the dragon maybe they used the player move event. im just guessing

    Read their plugin, those are pre-defined paths set by the users.

    Seems like this is harder than everyone thought. ;)

    Theres no entitymoveevent, so i had to work off playermoveevent, then check if there was a dragon nearby the player, then if its location was null, if it was teleport it to the players y coord. Seemed to turn out all the cows went flying when an enderdragon came near!

    Dragons like to eat cows. Cows don't like dragons. Cows flee when dragons come near.

    Code:
    getServer().getScheduler().scheduleSyncRepeatingTask(this, new Runnable() {
    public void Run(){
    for(World world : getServer().getWorlds()){
    for(Entity entity : world.getEntities()){
    if(entity.getType().equals(EntityType.EnderDragon){
    if(entity.getBlock().getType().equals(Material.AIR) == false){
    event.setCancelled(true);
    }
    }
    }
    }
    }
    }, 0L, 1L)
