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

    @siviter09e: Go

    Probably be out about the same time as a CraftBukkit beta build, but no guarantees!

    You can get the latest (unsupported) dev builds from the TARDIS Jenkins server - link in the description above (best to read the list of commits on the GitHub page to see what has changed - https://github.com/eccentricdevotion/TARDIS/commits/v2)

    @Puppier: Go

    Check WorldGuards regions.yml for the world, is mob-spawning: deny set correctly?

    @ReverendJesus: Go

    Please start a ticket, and in it upload your TARDIS.db, config.yml and the error log from the server (startup log AND log of the 'comehere' error). Thanks

    @TeisWoge: Go

    Make sure you are running TARDIS v2.2-beta-1 if using CraftBukkit 1.5.1

  • Avatar of eccentricnz eccentricnz Apr 01, 2013 at 19:32 UTC - 0 likes

    @zander123p: Go

    You need to install:

    1. TARDISChunkGenerator
    2. Multiverse-Core

    Once installed and running correctly

    1. Delete your TARDIS
    2. /tardisadmin create_worlds true
    3. Build new TARDIS
    4. Grow room

    when will the next update be out?

  • Avatar of ReverendJesus ReverendJesus Apr 01, 2013 at 16:26 UTC - 0 likes

    Running Minecraft 1.5.1, with the latest Dev build of Craftbukkit on my server. All the "recommended" plugins for the TARDIS are running as well.

    I'm able to create a TARDIS, and it materializes (and that's *very cool*), but while my key (stick) seems to lock & unlock it just fine, I cannot enter it via the door. It creates the TARDIS interior in its own world - I can use the multiverse "teleport" command to get there and verify that it exists - but I'm unable to enter it properly. I've tried un/reinstalling, reloading, and read through the FAQ and everything on the site I can grok, but I am at a loss.

    Possibly unrelated: The "/tardis comehere" command return an internal error when attempting to move the TARDIS. I hope it's something simple I'm missing, but I just *cannot* figure out what the hell I'm doing wrong.
