What it does

TARDIS is a plugin that gives you the ability to create a Police Box that lets you time travel (teleport) to random locations. It adds a Whovian twist to the typical /sethome and /home commands.

As a player, you can:

  • Create a TARDIS that is bigger on the inside.
  • Time travel to a random location.
  • Time travel back home (where you created the TARDIS initially).
  • Save and list interesting time travel locations, so you can return to them easily.
  • Take companions with you when you time travel.
  • Make your TARDIS blend in with the Chameleon Circuit.
  • Use your own schematic to build the TARDIS interior
  • Grow new TARDIS rooms
  • Use Artron Energy
  • Remote control the TARDIS
  • Custom TARDIS sounds with companion Resource Pack
  • Custom TARDIS textures with companion Resource Pack - requires MCPatcher with CTM and CIT

What's new?


Fixed broken /tardisroom add command


To avoid any confusion, this version is for CraftBukkit 1.7.9 or higher only due to the upcoming Minecraft in-game name changing. This means the plugin will update the TARDIS database file to use player UUIDs instead of player names. This requires that the plugin connect to api.mojang.com to lookup the applicable UUIDs - the plugin does this one time when the server is started up after installing the new version the first time. For more information, please see: http://dev.bukkit.org/bukkit-plugins/tardis/tickets/678-uuid-migration/

The TARDIS.zip file also includes a new TARDISHorseSpeed.jar for CraftBukkit 1.7.10 compatibility.

Change log here


As a minimum, just drop the TARDIS.jar and any optional plugins listed below into the Bukkit plugins folder and start your server. For more detailed instructions see: http://eccentricdevotion.github.io/TARDIS/installation.html

Optional installs

These are not needed for TARDIS to function, but enhance the plugin with extra features...

  • Install the TARDIS Resource Pack in the Minecraft client to hear custom TARDIS sounds
  • Install Multiverse so you have multiple worlds to travel to. This is also required if you want to generate TARDISes in their own self-conatined world, and grow rooms.
  • Install the TARDISChunkGenerator plugin so that you can generate TARDISes in their own self-conatined world (included in the ZIP download).
  • Install WorldGuard to automatically protect your TARDIS from griefing, and stop mobs spawning in TARDIS worlds.
  • Install WorldBorder to restrict the size of the worlds generated for TARDIS occupation.
  • Install TARDISWeepingAngels to add some Whovian mobs to the game.
  • Install a Permissions plugin, so that you can restrict or grant players the rights to use TARDIS’ different features. We like PermissionsBukkit.
  • Install ProtocolLib so that the TARDIS Zero Room is completely detached from the universe and the TARDIS Keyboard is editable by clicking it
  • Install LibsDisguises so that you can use the Genetic Manipulator / Immortality Gate

Bugs / Requests

Please post a ticket for TARDIS plugin requests and bugs, thank you :)

WARNING: I am no longer prepared to waste my time looking at incomplete tickets. If your ticket does not follow the guidelines set out below, it will be deleted immediately!

Make sure you have read the FAQs first, as your question may already be answered there.

If you are going to create a BUG ticket you need to supply relevant information (as I'm not a mind reader, nor do I have access to your server...) - as a minimum you need:

  1. Exact CraftBukkit version i.e. NOT 'the latest' - use the /tardis version command
  2. Exact TARDIS version i.e. NOT 'the latest' - use the /tardis version command
  3. The server log showing the entire error (as a paste or wrapped in <<code>> tags - NOT a screenshot) - if no error in the log, then a video of the bug happening or the EXACT steps needed to reproduce the issue.
  4. Attach your plugins/TARDIS/config.yml file
  5. Attach your plugins/TARDIS/TARDIS.db file
  6. List of other plugins on server
  7. And read this: How to file bugs


Basic statistics are collected for some versions of the TARDIS plugin (v2.5.8 and earlier). You can opt out at any time by setting opt-out: true in plugins/PluginMetrics/config.yml

External web access

Version 2.8 of this plugin includes a translation feature (the /tardissay command) that connects to Microsoft's translation service. The URLs it connects to are:

You can prevent players from using the command by removing / not giving them the permission tardis.translate

    I like the simpler things like the the new blocks.... I'm quite looking forward to creating a new world and starting out fresh with nothing but my hands and going it alone against the elements and monsters. A lot of the new stuff is kind of beyond my Minecraft playing skills - I don't think I will ever be able to defeat an underwater temple, I just don't get to play enough to be that good (unless I cheat and switch to creative lol)

    <<reply 2332681>>

    TARDIS and Tardis-Xern both do the same thing and shouldn't be installed together...

    Hey Eccentricnz, what are you most excited for in the 1.8 update?

    There's no Jogy34 here buddy, try asking on the correct plugin page...

    Dear Jogy34,

    First I must say, we absolutely LOVE your plug-ins. Currently I have the Tardis, Tardis-Xern and Weeping Angels plug-ins loaded on my server. When I attempted to do a quick plug in update on the Tardis plug-in I had some issues with finding and getting into my old Tardis.... So I went back to my original settings. I assume, the best thing to do is completely remove Tardis, Tardis-Xern and Weeping Angels and then reload the new updated versions one by one. After I do that, will I be able to import everyone's existing Tardis'? Should we all start over with new ones? I was hoping you could give me a little insight before I begin the upgrade process.

    Thank you for all of your hard work and time. SpectralPrisim CraftWho

    They should become secondary and tertiary consoles in a somewhat limited capacity

  • Avatar of ChenSun11 ChenSun11 Aug 30, 2014 at 16:57 UTC - 0 likes

    In the process of building some rooms on my TARDIS. I have the updated version now (not the beta) and I have a question. Does the Wooden Console and the 4th Doctor's Console work?... I remember when I had the beta version I couldn't seem to get them to work. Do they work or are they just there for show?

    @Knucklez107: Go


    Possible problem: wrong version of TARDIS for the version of CraftBukkit you are running, but without further information who knows, check the server log for errors...

  • Avatar of Knucklez107 Knucklez107 Aug 29, 2014 at 05:30 UTC - 0 likes

    I installed the plugin by dragging all files in the plugins folder.
    but nothing in the tardis plugin works, I typed in /plugins and the "Tardis Horse Speed" and the  "Tardis Chunk Generator" was normal but the plain "TARDIS" plugin was red, I am guessing that means it is broken, I installed it twice though, please help
