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

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-SoundResourcePack in the Minecraft client to hear custom TARDIS sounds
  • Install the TARDIS-MCP 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

External web access

Version 2.8 (and higher) 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

    @roracle: Go

    Someone has set an invalid URL for a resource pack

    @eccentricnz: Go

    That worked, thank you.

    However, I now have another problem that has come up:

    • [TARDIS] Not a valid URL! no protocol:

    What can be done about this?

    @roracle: Go

    Remove TARDIS-MCP/assets/minecraft/models/item/blaze_rod.json

    @eccentricnz: Go

    The Blaze Rod shows up as a Sonic Screwdriver. How do I fix this? The properties file doesn't have a slash color code associated, but when I try to associate it with the color code \u00A7f it does not work still. This is confusing for me, how should this be fixed?

    @KaijudoMaster: Go

    Sounds about right to me :)

    I always run the latest Jenkins build, but I never get so attached to my TARDIS that I don't mind resetting it when something goes wrong...

    @eccentricnz: Go

    Ah ok, I got it now, thank you very much!... Yeah I was thinking it was something like that cause I remember you giving me a link to the Jenkins site before; when I needed to update in the past.

    So is it safe to assume that if I want to try out new version at my own risk, go to Jenkins, but if I want to just use a stable version, download the latest on this site, correct?

    I like to take risk so I will be on Jenkins lol, but I like to know just in case I may need to dial back one day for what ever reason.

    @KaijudoMaster: Go

    The very latest version is always on the TARDIS Jenkins server

    But be aware that they are development builds, so use at your own risk - the latest builds are as stable as 3.6.2 though :)

    Hello all. I hope you all had a good summer.

    I have one silly question. I'm getting back into the swing of things with Minecraft. I just wanted to be sure that most resent version of the Tradis Plug is on this page (July/31/2016) is the latest version. I just want to be sure that I'm still getting the most up to date version of the plug in right here, or do I need to fool with Github and all that stuff.

    @roracle: Go

    You can ignore the warning, the Bukkit file just has a weird version number 6.1.2;e38d98d

    If you want to get rid of it you can get more recent builds here: http://builds.enginehub.org/job/worldguard?branch=master

    And don't forget to update WorldEdit too: http://builds.enginehub.org/job/worldedit?branch=master

    Is there a version of WorldGuard that won't throw me this error? This is the one from the Bukkit page so I'm not sure why it's doing this...

    12.09 15:09:17 [Server] WARN TARDIS failed to get the version for WorldGuard.

    12.09 15:09:17 [Server] WARN This could cause issues with enabling the plugin.

    12.09 15:09:17 [Server] WARN Please check you have at least v6.1.2

    12.09 15:09:17 [Server] WARN The invalid version format was 6.1.2;e38d98d
