Draconis aims to make Minetest Game more fun to play in survival by adding an exploration element and higher progression beyond diamond.


Dragons spawn in 2 ways depending on the mod config. If simple spawning is on, they will spawn randomly in the overworld like most other mobs. If simple spawning is off, smaller Dragons will spawn in patches of frozen or scorched terrain littered with loot blocks, aand massive Dragons spawn undeground in rare caverns. Undeground Dragons are meant as a sort of boss fight, with the end reward of a Dragon Egg if the slain Dragon is female.


Draconis adds 2 new tool materials, Dragon Bone, and Draconic Steel.

Dragon Bones are obtained by killing Dragons. No matter what type of Dragon it is, it will always drop Dragon Bones. These bones can be turned into very strong tools, stronger than Diamond and Mese, and can also be used to craft the Dragon Flute,

Draconic Steel has 2 varieties, they have no differences aside from cosmetics, unless you have 3D Armor enabled.

Draconic Steel is created through a very difficult process that requires killing multiple Dragons and having at least one adult Dragon. The full process is detailed in the in-game Bestiary. Draconic Steel is much stronger than Diamond and most other modded tools, and the armor gives certain buffs depending on the variety of Draconic Steel used.

Do you recommend this mod?


    While I personally am not the biggest fan of survival oriented servers adn games, draconis certainly has mede me reconsider. It has life like ~~although, technically dragons aint real~~ animations, and the hardwork of ceejo just shows through everything. +1 For a damn fine mod


  • Pretty good mod

    Seems like a good mod to me. Adds lots of very cool dragons, new materials an weapons. I like that it runs well on old computers, despite having amazingly complex AI, high-poly textures and being a fairly large mod in general.


  • Good mod

    I'm taking your word for it. Also, fire = good.


  • dragons

    great mod that provides amamzing qualitly dragons


  • Updoot because this seems to be a genuinely well-done mod.

    ~~I gotta admit though that I haven't even bothered to download it.~~

    I have even bothered to download it.


  • Very innovative

    A very good example of the capabilities of mobkit and the recent engine changes for code based animation.


  • Dragons <3

    I love this mod. The dragons are so amazing. I have been seeing it used on Dragon Realms 2021. I think it's really sweet to see the dragons sleep at night. I didn't think they'd grow so large however, but I think it's perfect! I have yet to hatch my own dragon, even though I have all the necessary components. I just want to keep the eggs unhatched until I have at least two of the same color.


  • Dragons!

    This mod is really quite impressive

    I decided to try this mod out, and started by spawning a dragon. It looked at me for a few seconds, walked a bit, then killed me instantly. I returned to find the hill on fire from the dragon, with dragon sliding down the hill leaving destruction in its wake



    No game is complete without dragons. This is a pretty high quality mod for them
