Guidelines for custom TARDIS schematics

You can create a custom schematic for the inner TARDIS, but there are a few things you need to know before you jump right in!

  1. The custom TARDIS can only have 1 iron door, 1 stone button, and 1 wood button in its initial design (in addition to the placeholder blocks as listed below).
  2. The TARDIS should be sized in multiples of 16 blocks (1 chunk) — two sides of the tardis interior will have a 1 thick layer for red-stone that must be included however. For clarification on the structure of the room grow an empty using your ars system and inspect it’s dimension and the door system.!
  3. TARDISes should be squares i.e. that same width (x) and length (z) dimensions. A 16 x 16 block TARDIS is good, a 24 x 18 block TARDIS would be bad.
  4. When you are facing the outside of the TARDIS door, you should be pointing SOUTH.
  5. The are some special placeholder blocks that are needed so the that plugin will record the location of the TARDIS controls. They are:
    cake block handbrake
    monster stone (97:0) Save Sign
    97:1 Destination Terminal
    97:2 Architectural Reconfiguration System
    97:3 TARDIS Information System
    97:4 Temporal Locator
    97:5 Keyboard
    Mushroom stem (100:15) All 4 repeaters
    Sign Chameleon Circuit / Preset selector
    A second sign Control centre (requires TARDIS v3.2 or higher)
    Wood button Artron Energy Button
    Stone button Random Destination Button
    Chest Artron Energy Condenser
    Iron door TARDIS interior door
    Spawner Scanner
    Bedrock To block off the Beacon beam (used when turning off the power)

The Tardis must be completed by March 31st! and a post must be made in tardis contest including coordinates of your tardis in creative and a one line summery of the theme.


  • I honestly don’t understand these intructions

    • What exactly is confusing about them?

      Macdja38January 18, 2016
    • Simple the smallest is 16×16 the biggest is 32×32 plots are 33×33 so redstone blocks will take up the rest of the plot. the door should be in the south if you are looking at it from any direction. and as mac said in another comment put signs where you need placeholders that you can’t get from the creative menu.

    • Nvm the plots are a 3×3 chunk so make a 2×2 chunk square to build your tardis in with two walls gone and 2 walls of redstone

      • Actually the one thick block of redst੦ne is included in the size of the tardis, eg 31×31 and a one thick layer of redst੦ne door stuff makes 32×32. That’s how the tardises have a beacon in the middle.

  • How do we get a spawner in the creative world? We are creative, not OP.

    • Good point. Just put the sign with what you want there.
