To create a TARDIS, you first need to craft a TARDIS seed block. The crafting recipe depends on which version of the plugin you have installed.
To see the crafting recipes, use the command:
/tardisrecipe seed [console type]
or just type “how do I make a TARDIS?” into chat.
A seed block requires five different components as explained below. You can mix and match your own combination of blocks (20,000+ different combinations with the default plugin configuration) to customise the appearance of your TARDIS.
The crafting grid above shows how to craft the default ‘budget’ TARDIS that starts off with the FACTORY chameleon preset (TARDIS v3.7 and higher):
Once the required and chosen blocks are placed in the crafting grid, a TARDIS seed block is automatically generated.
Seed blocks can be placed, broken and dropped and still remain as a valid seed block.
Seed block not crafting? You might be using an ancient version of the plugin - check out the instructions here: the old way of crafting

Your TARDIS Police Box requires a 3 x 4 x 4 (w x d x h) cuboid region. Where you place the TARDIS seed block will be the centre of the Police Box, and will be saved as the TARDIS’s ‘Home’ location.
To create your TARDIS, right-click a placed seed block with the TARDIS key.
Once clicked, the seed block will change into a TARDIS builder block and the TARDIS creation will be displayed as a progress bar with informative text.
Your TARDIS requires a key (default is a gold nugget, configurable in the config file).
RIGHT-click the door with your “key” to open the door and then walk into your new TARDIS interior!
This video is now outdated, for TARDIS v3.7 and above do NOT include the exterior wall or lamp blocks!
