Supported Bukkit Versions

  • CB 1.7.9-R0.1



For CraftBukkit 1.7.8+ only!

Please also read the change log for v2.8-beta-1 and v2.8-beta-2 here: http://eccentricdevotion.github.io/TARDIS/change-log.html


  • Added UUID support for Minecraft/CraftBukkit 1.7.8 changes due to the upcoming in-game name changing feature, more info here: http://dev.bukkit.org/bukkit-plugins/tardis/tickets/678-uuid-migration/
    • Server must be online-mode=true in server.properties as player UUIDs are different when the server is in offline mode
    • When you first install a UUID compatible version, the plugin will automatically backup and update the TARDIS database with the new UUID fields
    • After the database update, the current records will be queried for a list of player names
    • From this list, the plugin will connect to the Mojang Accounts database and retrieve UUIDs for all the players in the list - because this requires a connection to the web it may hold up the server startup process for a few seconds (it depends how many Time Lords there are - in a recent test on a database of 118 players, it took 18 seconds and updated 1343 records)
  • Added a message to the player if the TARDIS _Zero_Room world has not been created and they try to grow a Zero room
  • Added the wg_flag_set and external_gravity options to the /tardisadmin command
  • Added compatibility with the Project Rassilon plugin when using the Sonic Screwdriver's bio-scanning feature
  • Added a black wool_lights preference - /tardisprefs wool_lights [on|off] to use wool instead of sponge when turning off the TARDIS lights and during malfunctions
  • Added ‘Flag’ support to TARDIS WorldGuard compatibility
    • The respect_worldguard setting is no longer true or false
    • Valid values are none (same as what was previously false) and any WorldGuard State flag
    • The default value is build, another common value will probably be entry
  • Added a config option to allow T.I.P.S to expand to a possible 1600 slots
    • The default is still 400, but can be changed in the config by setting creation.tips_limit to a multiple of 400 i.e. 800, 1200, 1600 - /tardisadmin tips_limit [limit]


  • TARDISHorseSpeed has been updated for CraftBukkit 1.7.8
  • The Artron Indicator only shows used, percent and remaining when travelling. To see the full charge and time lord levels, use the Artron Button on the console
  • When using Multiverse new TARDIS worlds are set to animalrate: 0 and monstersrate: 0 instead of animals: false, monsters: false. This prevents farmed mobs from despawning
    • To update existing TARDIS worlds, use the command /tardisadmin modify mv
  • In conjunction with the above, we now add WorldGuard regions with a higher priority to the farm, stable and village rooms to allow mob spawning in them (except for nasty monsters of course)
  • Now properly getting and setting TARDIS mob names, and saddled pigs if necessary when farming
  • The horse's direction is now set correctly when exiting the TARDIS from the stable room
  • We are now using our own anti-build methods, as WorldGuard's do not achieve the desired result (this is relevant to the player 'build' preference - /tardisprefs build [on|off])
    • To update existing TARDIS worlds, use the command /tardisadmin modify wg
  • Added 'Companion Build' preference to the Sonic Screwdriver Player Preferences GUI
  • Changed the messages when Advanced Console use is required
  • You no longer have to click the output slot to generate a biome or preset disk
  • Prevented the Emerald Sonic from scanning when clicking an interactable block (such as a door, button, chest etc)

Bug fixes

  • Fixed a bug where one of the TARDIS map files (map_1966.dat) was not copied to the TARDIS folder and consequently may be missing from the server's main world/data folder
    • if map_1966.dat is missing, remove all the map files from the server's main world/data folder so that TARDIS will regenerate the map files
    • copy the new map files back to the server's main world/data folder
  • Fixed a bug where click-dragging in the Storage inventory upper slots allowed items to be stored there (that also became un-retrieveable)
  • Fixed the Save Sign GUI opening when the player was in the TARDIS, but didn't enter via the door
  • Fixed the custom TARDIS schematic not working
  • Fixed mis-named player disks in the lists generated by the /tardisrecipe and /tardisgive commands

For CraftBukkit 1.7.8 only, no longer compatible with prior versions, and it will disable itself if a lower version is used!
