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

What's new?


To avoid any confusion, this version is for CraftBukkit 1.7.8 only due to the upcoming Minecraft in-game name changing.

The file also includes a new TARDISHorseSpeed.jar for CraftBukkit 1.7.8 compatibility.

Change log here

CAUTION: v2.7 requires CraftBukkit 1.7 or greater!


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:

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.

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 wrapped in <<code>> tags - NOT a screenshot) - if no error in the log, then a video of the bug happening or the EXACT steps needed to reproduce the issue.
  4. Attach your plugins/TARDIS/config.yml file
  5. Attach your plugins/TARDIS/TARDIS.db file
  6. List of other plugins on server
  7. And read this: How to file tickets


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

TARDIS Achievement

v2.7 Additions
  • Added some aliases to the /tardistexture command - /tardisresource - /tresource - /trp
  • Added the Artron Storage Cell, Memory and Scanner circuit to the /tardisgive command
  • Added missing room permissions to ARS
  • Added Exterior Rendering Room preference - /tardisprefs renderer [on|off]
  • Added relative coordinates travel - same permission as normal coordinates travel - similar to normal coordinates travel, but you don't need to specify a world, and the relative values MUST be proceeded by a tilde (~) e.g. /tardistravel ~50 ~ ~90 moves you 50 blocks in the X direction, 0 blocks in the Y direction and 90 blocks in the Z direction
  • Added the ability for the Sonic Screwdriver to sort chests - permission tardis.sonic.sort
  • Added an emergency relocation feature to move the TARDIS, and handle errors, if the world the TARDIS was in was deleted
  • If the TARDIS is hidden, but blocks have been placed in its location, you can unhide the TARDIS by hitting the blocks with the Admin Sonic Screwdriver
  • To list TARDISes for pruning, you now need to use the /tardisadmin prunelist [days] command
  • You can now break any sign to delete TARDIS, not just Police Box ones

  • TARDIS item recipes are now configurable -
  • The ARS GUI is now keyed to the TARDIS rather than the player clicking the sign, though it will only allow the player whose TARDIS it is to reconfigure - this allows admins to view a player's ARS setup
  • There are new map files for the new TARDIS recipes and updated map files for existing TARDIS recipes. They will be copied to the plugins/TARDIS folder - please update the files in the main world/data folder.
  • Updated the code for texture pack switching to use resource packs
  • If using the TARDIS Resource Pack sounds the server can now configure how loud they play
