TARDIS Schematic command

As of version 3.0-beta-1, TARDIS now uses its own JSON schematic format. To create a TARDIS schematic (.tschm) file, you use the /tardisschematic command.

Command use

/tardisschematic [save|load|paste] [name]


In order to use the save argument, you must first define the schematic region start and end points with the TARDIS schematic wand (/tardisgive [player] schematic_wand 1).

/tardisschematic save custom


To use the load argument, you must specify the folder and file [name] of the schematic you want to use. You don’t need to add the file extension.

/tardisschematic load [folder] [schematic]

There are four [folder] locations:


Once loaded the schematic can be pasted back into the world with the paste argument.

/tardisschematic paste

Pasting should be relatively lag free, as the number of blocks being placed per tick is restricted. A progress bar will appear to give you an indication of how long the schematic will take to process.


There are two sub-commands to deal with custom display item light blocks:

/tardisschematic convert [light] [material]

eg use ` /tardisschematic convert TENTH REDSTONE_LAMP` to convert all redstone lamps in the selected area to Tenth TARDIS lights.

/tardisschematic remove

Removes TARDIS light blocks and replaces them with redstone lamps.

Note: While it is possible to paste schematics, it is still recommended to use a plugin such as WorldEdit to do this sort of work.
