DarkHorse Plugin

I seem to be doing a lot of bukkit plugins lately.  At least they’re good ones, though.

This plugin adds a few new riding animals into minecraft.  You’re not just stuck with horses anymore.  You’ve got donkeys, mules, and skeleton horses.  Yep, you can ride a dead horse instead of beating it like someone who makes Australian jokes.  ¡ǝʇɐɯ ‘ʎɐp pooƃ.  There are also zombie horses.  They both look pretty cool.  I mean, imagine running through a city riding one of these:

Just imagine it.  Let that image sink in.  Sadly, this is NOT single-player, only bukkit.  And the horses don’t spawn naturally, so I guess you can use it as a way to identify the devs from everyone else.  Or as a premium reward on a server for donating to them.  Whatever you want to do with it, really.  To spawn one, just type /dh followed by the type of horse you want.  The list is:

  • horse
  • donkey
  • mule
  • skeleton
  • zombie

Add ” tamed” to the end of the command to spawn a tamed one that you just need to saddle.  Then proceed onto your ever-lasting undead ride into the setting moon.
