The TARDIS Control Menu

From TARDIS version 3.6 and higher, the TARDIS Control Menu is the main way to access the TARDIS’s functions. Previously the TARDIS had multiple signs scattered throughout the console to access its various GUIs. The TARDIS Control Menu brings them all together in one place.

The TARDIS Control Menu sign displays information about the TARDIS’s location and Artron Energy levels.

TARDIS Control Menu sign

If you have an existing TARDIS without the Control Menu, you can add it by placing a sign where you want the Control Menu to be, and running the command:

/tardis update control

Click on the sign and its position will be added to the TARDIS database.

Control Menu use

To use the TARDIS Control Menu, right-click on the Control Menu sign.
