How To Build a TARDIS


“Right Guys This is where it gets complicated”

Welcome to, home of many a great things, including the T.a.r.d.i.s plugin by eccentricdevotion.  The TARDIS plugin in most likely one of the most complicated and intensely accurate plugins i have ever seen. The level of detail and authenticity is impeccable, and for that we thank you eccentriccdevotion.

Now on to why you are reading this section. HOW TO BUILD A T.A.R.D.I.S. On this page you will find a few helpful hints for using the TARDIS plugin.


First Thing first, The following is a link to the official plugin page, this is you friend and will give you more detail and more advanced information about the plugin that will not be included on this page. Click Here to go to the TARDIS Plugin page.

Now as new player joining the server,  you will start off with nothing, and assuming your first order of business is to build a TARDIS, you will need to get tools. As a regular redstone rank you have access to the following TARDIS:

COAL BLOCK – “steampunk” TARDIS interior
LAPIS BLOCK – “Tom Baker” TARDIS interior
BOOKSHELF – “wood plank” TARDIS interior
REDSTONE BLOCK – “redstone” TARDIS interior


To build any of the TARDIS seedblocks, you will require the following.

  • IRON block = TARDIS type, can be any of the current TARDIS ‘type’ blocks e.g. IRON, GOLD, DIAMOND, EMERALD etc
  • LAPIS block = required block
  • REDSTONE TORCH = required block
  • BLUE WOOL = Police Box wall block
  • REDSTONE LAMP = Police Box lamp
  • LIGHT GREY WOOL = TARDIS interior floor block, can be any valid TARDIS wall block
  • ORANGE WOOL = TARDIS interior wall block, can be any valid TARDIS wall block

Once you have all of the following, you will need to find, or craft a crafting bench. In the crafting bench you will assemble them in this order.





The Redstone Torch in the top corner, Lapiz Block bellow that, then The tardis Seed Block bellow that.

On the second row, you leave the top blank, the middle is the Redstone Lamp, and bellow that is the blue wool.

On the third row, you once again leave the top empty,  the middle block can be any valid tardis wall block, and same with the floor block bellow that.


Once you have made the tardis seed block, you will need a stick and an open area in witch to materialize you tardis.

After your tardis has materialized, you will use the stick to open the door. Welcome to your very own tardis, we are almost done. Now that you are in your tardis you can almost get going on your way. The first thing you should do upon entering your tradis for the first time is initiate the power. Do this by pressing the wooden button on, or near your console. Once you have pressed the button a charged creeper will a pear in a cage under the console and a beacon will shoot up through the middle of your tardis.

Next on your list of Timelord Tasks, is to open up the advanced console. You will need to fine the Jukebox inside your tardis console room. Once you have found it, if you have a sonic screwdriver you can use that to open it, however on this occasion you should have been given 7 circuits when your tardis was build, all 7 of these are crucial to the operating of the tardis, when you hold a circuit in your hand and open the advanced console, it should open. Once open you must place all 7 circuits inside the console.

*this step is not required* “Brand new Tardis. Bit exciting. Just had a quick hop to the moon and back to run her in. She’s ready for the big stuff now.” or some such, in this step i will tell you how to use the disk storage container, this is the note block inside your tardis. Open this with the tardis key or sonic screwdriver. Once opened, you will see several categories. One of witch is named “AREAS”, click on this, in this catagorie you should see 2 disk’s, one name Spawn1, and the other named Spawn2. Take either of these. once you put the disk in your inventory, you must walk over and open the advanced console, place the disk in on of the open slots and then exit out of the advanced console. The you must walk over to the console in the middle of the room, and release the handbrake. Then follow onscreen instructions.


Thank you for reading our quick tutorial on the basics of “How To Build A T.A.R.D.I.S. Though you are far from a complete tardis, you have taken the first step. I am now privileged to say, you are the proud owner of your very own tardis. Enjoy!

  • This is nice and all but for some of us the seed doesn’t generate.

    • Make sure you are building a tardis you have adequate permission to build. If you are using all the correct blocks please try to click the output slot of the crafting table it may just need to be triggered.

      You should be able to build:
      and maybe a few more.

      If it still does not work please send an email to with a screenshot of the seed you are tying to build, I will get back to you as soon as possible.

  • If the seed block does not appear in the crafting window try removing one of the items then putting it back
    If your new tardis seed block does not generate try shift right clicking it with a gold nugget if you don’t have one try asking for one or finding gold ore

  • I was trying to craft a steampunk TARDIS on your server and there was supposed to be a seed block. But nothing came up, I changed the order then put it back into the original recipe. Still, no seed block. I am confused…. Mind helping me?

    • Hello and Welcome Pwng2Ahsumness!! im sorry to hear this however the reason you cant craft yourself a steam punk tardis is due to the fact that it is a donor tardis. The rank you need to be for a steam punk and iron tardis is iron rank witch is 5$. Sorry about that.
