TARDIS

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?

v3.3

This version requires a recent build of CraftBukkit/Spigot - this means you will probably need to run Spigot's BuildTools to update your server JAR file.

The TARDIS.zip file also includes a new TARDISHelper.jar for CraftBukkit 1.8.7 compatibility - TARDIS v3.3 requires TARDISHelper v1.7.3 or later.

Installation

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 the TARDIS Resource Pack in the Minecraft client to see custom TARDIS textures
  • Install Multiverse-Core 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 ( or just use the vanilla Minecraft World Border feature).
  • 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. Also make sure you have searched for a previous ticket with the same/similar issue (use the Filters to search closed tickets).

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 at Pastebin - NOT a screenshot) - this should be the log from when the server starts up right through to when the error occurs
  4. If no error in the log, then a video of the bug happening or the EXACT steps needed to reproduce the issue.
  5. Attach your plugins/TARDIS/config.yml file or other configuration file if relevant
  6. Attach your plugins/TARDIS/TARDIS.db file
  7. List of other plugins on server
  8. 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

    And if you have your TARDIS in junk mode, it'll now leave you behind if you hit the handbrake.

    Cannot reproduce, working fine for me...

    And I just noticed my Biome Adaption isn't working anymore. The submarine works if it's on water, but otherwise it's always a Police Box. Great...

    Make sure both the Chameleon Circuit and Biome Adaption are ON

    Now I'm curious if there's some kind of a command to see what plugins are availible and what they do for the TARDIS plugin, and especially what version of them I need...

    I can't seem to find anything like it in the Index File. But I'm not sure how outdated the information above is, since this is running a Beta build I'm assuming I couldn't go based on that.

    I'm trying to add functionality to the TARDIS plugin without having to fiddle too much with different settings files, and I don't want nothing like Factions or Towny as that just makes my server more complex than it needs to be. xD

    @eccentricnz: Go

    That fixed it, thank you! :) By the way, you'll need to update the TARDIS Information System with the new console rooms that were added.

    I also managed to fix the signs by running BuildTools again to make sure it was the latest version.

    Edit: And I just noticed my Biome Adaption isn't working anymore. The submarine works if it's on water, but otherwise it's always a Police Box. Great...

    Just realised you need to delete the Acid Battery as well... made some small changes to the recipes - use build #1516

    @eccentricnz: Go

    I deleted the entries, and no longer get a server error, but they don't get re-added after restarting the server.

  • Avatar of eccentricnz eccentricnz Jun 26, 2016 at 23:19 UTC - 0 likes

    @Dracony225: Go

    Delete the entries for the Rift Circuit & Rift Manipulator from the recipes.yml file and let them get re-added next server startup. If that doesn't work, make a ticket with the server startup log in a paste and attach recipes.yml

  • Avatar of Dracony225 Dracony225 Jun 26, 2016 at 22:52 UTC - 0 likes

    @eccentricnz: Go

    This is what the server log is telling me:

    [00:49:42 INFO]: [TARDIS] Rift Circuit recipe failed! Check the recipe config file!

    [00:49:42 INFO]: [TARDIS] Rift Manipulator recipe failed! Check the recipe config file!

    No errors before or after those messages. And yes I have every single map file moved to the correct folder. And this is a completely fresh installation, with none of the config files edited.
