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?


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 1.7.9 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

Note v2.8 needs to have WorldGuard & WorldEdit on the server for the plugin to enable. (Fixed in build #780 and higher)

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

    @trickyrockslayer: Go

    Not something that really does it for me, and certainly won't be implemented unless/until:

    1. There is a comprehensive ticket made
    2. Minecraft / CraftBukkit 1.8 comes out with native support those floaty text thingy mabobs

    Also I have no idea what you mean by "sift threw image files for the worlds"

    I had a weird thing happen. I decided to test out a new permissions plugin (GroupManager) and I set it up with a few ranks and gave the ranks appropriate privileges. One rank I made called Timelord with has all of the needed TARDIS plugin nodes in it. Everything worked fine and the players all seemed to enjoy the new ranks. However when one user who didn't have a TARDIS yet decided to make one, her rank was changed and a entirely new rank was made (first_group) . Of course This was very weird, but wanted to say something here since it occurred during the creation of a TARDIS. Have you heard of this happening before?

    I just thought it would be cool to have an advanced travel room that would sift threw image files for the worlds. The destination console does not add new worlds its display. If the interer syns where holograms that would be cool to. Like a soft dependency. the plugin should be able to be enabled and disabled by the players in the preferences.

    @trickyrockslayer: Go

    What do you mean by 'support' - the touchscreen one looks as though it will just work with any commands, including TARDIS ones...

    I'll not be adding any features that you can easily achieve with another plugin.
