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

    Seed block ositions

    Red squares are where the seed blocks go. Sounds like you have them on the wrong side of the pressure plate.

    Please read the official docs before posting... http://eccentricdevotion.github.io/TARDIS/ars.html

    What is ARS?

    @eccentricnz: Go

    I am using the newest version for 1.7.2, and I am placing the seed right in front of the pressure plate, where a wall thing used to be. I then right click it with the seed.

    @Gamingsanta: Go

    Post the lines after that code, for example, what we're looking for here is something like this:

    Caused by: java.lang.IndexOutOfBoundsException: Index: 3, Size: 1
    	at java.util.ArrayList.rangeCheck(ArrayList.java:635)
    	at java.util.ArrayList.remove(ArrayList.java:474)
    	at me.eccentric_nz.TARDIS.listeners.TARDISHandbrakeListener.onInteract(TARDISHandbrakeListener.java:225)

    Look for the Caused by: line - this one tells me there is an error accessing an array on line 225 of the TARDIS handbrake listener class

    Thanks so much! I've managed to pin point the error to this line, {ERROR]: Could not pass PlayerInteractEvent to TARDIS v2.6-b472} right after the world is created and imported after using the seed block.(I have deleted and regenerated the schematics) If there is some fix for this, I would love to know.

    Sorry for causing so much of a problem, but this is my favorite bukkit plugin. :)

    @CalvinCreator: Go

    What version are you using?

    How are you growing rooms? ARS or manually?

    Have you actually read the change logs to see where you should be placing the seed block?

    When I try to grow something in the small tardis, the one mad with iron, it says that there are blocks in front and it cant grow it. When I try on the biggest, it builds the things inside!!! I think on the small one it was trying to build it inside too, but encountered blocks (the tardis) and can't. How do I fix it so the tardis builds things outside the tardis?

    Curse support has fixed a problem with me not being able to upload the new TARDIS Resource Pack with custom sounds, so the pack is now officially available for download. Get it here:
