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?



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. 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

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

    51st anniversary of Doctor Who today (in my part of the world at least and so the plugin informs me...)

    @markdf: Go

    Yep, there's probably a number of things that I need to update in the docs, they always seem to lag behind the current features

    Permission tardis.eject is missing from the Index File

    @eccentricnz: Go

    I uploaded the two I made. On one I mention it's for 3.1 and needs to be in .tschm format, but didn't mention it on the other. I put the offset as "-1?" because I had no idea what it would be since we don't have to worry about that now days. I'm quite sure they're in working order.

    Also I noticed the "bigger" one should only be one floor, but takes up two on the map. If it's exactly 16 high it's too low for the doors. I didn't change the floor level when I loaded up the 'bigger' schematic you offer in the set, but had to change it to make it work right. Not sure why it's one way on bigger, but another on the one I made. *shrug*

    EDIT: I see what the issue is, the top block I copy is too high, puts it past the 16 block limit.

    EDIT2: I'll have to re-submit those schematics. The default console I copied (bigger) somehow had one block with TWO sticky pistons sticking out of it, one pointed up, another down, and this was on every door with sticky pistons. When I would load it as my TARDIS, the sticky pistons would be pointed to the _sides_ instead of up/down. Another issue was the RedStone Torches didn't load originally and same with the door. Would be good to note with using this method to build.

    Yep, that page still needs a WE schematic

    Thanks for taking a look at the request mate.

    On the custom TARDIS schematics page, to upload one, we need to put it in .schematic format, no? Do so with world edit?

    (took my Bigger Baker idea and created what I call "Type 40 Deluxe", can't wait to show ^_^)

    @eccentricnz: Go

    That would be a very large ticket. They would have a lot to cover...

    @Squawkers13: Go

    Maybe they might, but they would have to say what they want the API to give access to...

    @eccentricnz: Go

    Maybe some other developers would also like the presence of a TARDIS API as well :)
