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

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 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

    RE: an actual eye of harmony

    I really think this is what custom rooms are for! I will not be adding any default rooms that don't fit with the current modular system, sorry, but that's just how I like my TARDIS to be...

    I'm quite happy to host room schematic files for everybody to access though :)

    You could make it to where you have a chance of going out of control and you need to use a stabilizer.

    "an actual eye of harmony in the tardis (perhaps a ball of stationary lava source blocks) - I'm a bit wary of introducing lava into a TARDIS, maybe an animated texture once the Minecraft plugin API comes out"

    Yet another set of ideas! How about, instead of using lava, glowstone may be a more... user-friendly option. ;)

    EDIT: Also (I've seen an event rather recently where this may have been helpful), I think it might be a good idea to set a Worldguard flag on fire spreading in both the TARDIS and the Time_Vortex worlds. And, perhaps a command to update existing worlds with the flag, as well.

    Yep, already had to retrieve one of mine from a back-up... will see what can be done.

  • Avatar of markdf markdf May 01, 2013 at 04:21 UTC - 0 likes

    Would it be worthwhile putting the user schematics into a seperate folder? If the included consoles and rooms need updating for bug fixes or changes, I predict I'll probably delete the user submitted rooms by accident eventually if they are all in the same folder.

    Fair enough, have updated the change log and will be sure to mention it in the official docs when they are done :)

    @eccentricnz: Go

    Perhaps you could use the same donuts on the doors to the rooms. Also, perhaps you could use something along the lines of: you have separate...things..for the room and the walls. By things I mean like a worldedit selection, but not worldedit. Basically, it deletes the room, and deletes the walls based on the room.

    @eccentricnz: Go

    I thought you meant two inside the TARDIS oops

    Now it works!

    It did say just "Place a pair of IRON doors" never said where.

    @Dogrules23: Go

    Going to need a little bit more info than that... did you set 2 doors one inside the TARDIS and one outside the TARDIS?

  • Avatar of Dogrules23 Dogrules23 May 01, 2013 at 02:49 UTC - 0 likes

    I can't use the backdoor I set.
