1.4 - The Renaissance Update


This update focuses on many quality of life (QoL) updates, innovative features, bug fixes as well as making many systems data driven. 

Among these data driven systems, is a new system that allows you to add your own Console Rooms into the mod without needing to learn how to code. 

More information here: Tardis Mod: Data Driven Console Rooms Release Document 

An overhaul was made to the flight system which made it possible for users to stay in the Vortex (flying limbo without materialising the exterior). If the stabilisers are left off, the Tardis will be able to stay in the Vortex after it reaches its destination until you pull the throttle down to 0,or wait until a component or fuel runs out. 

Additionally, this flight update allows for the introduction of custom events. One of these is the Time Ram, a multistep event which involves another player's Tardis. You must collaborate with the other player to prevent both Tardises falling out of flight. 

We are proud to showcase our implementation of the Dynamic Tardis Chameleon Circuit system. This allows your Tardis exteriors to take on different structures such as cactus, trees or villager huts depending on the biome type and surrounding blocks at the destination point 

Some of you may have noticed our previews about adding the moon and space dimensions. This will not be in this update. It was the original focus of this update, but due to the support we’ve received for adding quality of life enhancements, and the fact that the space concepts have not been fully fleshed out yet, we decided to go with the former instead.

Upon release of this update, please UPDATE YOUR FORGE VERSION to 28.2.23. The mod will not load without using this new version as it uses a feature added by this version of Forge.

Important Notes

This version of the mod requires Forge Version 28.2.23 for Minecraft 1.14.4



  • /tardis exterior command in favour of /tardis interior. 
    • The /tardis interior command allows for more precise syncing between interior and exterior. 
    • Previously, it was possible for /tardis exterior command to teleport you to a cached position and not the real-time position of the exterior.



  • /tardis remove_exterior - removes the exterior of the Tardis at specified block position. This is because /setblock command will no longer work on the exterior

Configuration Options

  • Client side config to toggle rendering of monitor scanning mode
  • Client side config to blacklist certain blocks from rendering in the monitor scanner
  • Client side only config option - allows you to toggle whether the Vortex Manipulator will open when you right click with an empty hand
  • Collision range config - determines block radius in which tardis should collide with another tardis if both Tardises are within this range. 
  • ARS Deletion config - configures number of seconds required between deleting an ARS Room


  • Added the ability to add your own console rooms into the mod. 
  • Added a data pack entity type tag file called “Ignored_alarm_entities”.json. This allows entities to not trigger the Tardis alarm.
  • Datapack json file called "tardis_proof". Tardises won't be able to land on any of the blocks listed in this file


  • Security Drone Entity
    • Hostile mob that will become a pet when “tamed” 
  • Tardis Mod Dimensions can now have oxygen levels, and any players that don't have enough oxygen will suffocate and take damage

    • Shows uuid of Tardis owner if the player who looks at it doesn't have the owner's username stored in their usernamecache.json file in minecraft install folder
  • Transduction Barrier - 
    • A machine block that stores a landing code which prevents Tardises from landing in a 32 block radius around the block if the Tardis' landing codes don't match the barrier's codes. 
    • It will redirect unauthorised Tardises to land somewhere else. 
    • Requires sonic screwdriver to modify and view landing codes.
  • Tardis Landing Pad 
    • Allows a Tardis to home in on the block's position and land there if it is within 16 blocks on the tardis' destination position. 
    • If a Transduction Barrier is nearby and the Tardis’ landing codes don’t match the transduction barrier’s ones, the Tardis will not land at the landing pad. 
  • ARS Structure Void Block
    • Allows any corridor or room to be deleted. 
    • To use this, right click with an ARS tablet on a Corridor Kill block that is located at the entrance of a room. 
    • A countdown will show on screen showing time to deletion. In Creative mode this countdown time will be reduced
    • A cooldown will apply to ARS tablet items when a room has been deleted. The cooldowns are configurable using the config file. In Creative mode, the cooldown is removed
    • If you are inside the deleted room, you will be teleported to the console. 
    • You cannot create a new room whilst deleting an existing room
  • Oxygen Sealer Block, checks for “non-permeable” and “permeable” blocks in an area. If a room is entirely made of non-permeable blocks, you will be able to survive in the room without a fully enclosed spacesuit.
    • The Oxygen block itself is permeable, so make sure you place it inside the room
    • Config defined permeable blocks shown in “tardis_oxygen_config.json” file in the config folder
  • Airlock block.
    • A multiblock door that prevents air from escaping when closed. When opened, allows for easy access to the exterior of a build

  • Holographic Ladders 
    • Ladders that don’t require a support block


  • Tardis Diagnostic Tool- locates your Tardis and shows its subsystem health
    • To track your Tardis exterior, look around the world with your mouse whilst holding the item in your hotbar. If you are looking within 10 degrees on either side of your Tardis exterior, the item will show a green arrow pointing to the exterior, and play a beeping sound. 
      • There is a 1 second response delay between syncing updates to improve server performance
    • You can also track the console unit block using this item if you are in your Tardis interior. This can help you navigate when you've created alot of rooms

    • Adds Recharge multiplier of 1
  • Artron Capacitor (High)
    • Adds 256 additional Artron Units to total fuel banks

  • New ability to limbo in the Vortex
    • If you turn off stabilisers, you will continue to fly even after you reach your destination, allowing your exterior to not materialise until you want to.
    • You can still use the monitor scanner whilst in Vortex Flight
    • To exit Vortex Flight, pull the throttle down to 0 (sneak and left click).
  • Time Ram Event
    • if you and another TARDIS’ flight paths cross, a time- ram happens
    • the TARDIS colliding with the other gets a special event, (complete with custom sound and alarm) if they fail they fall out of flight, taking massive damage, and the rammed TARDIS takes damage too
    • If the pilot who is causing the ramming succeeds in preventing the ram, the TARDIS being rammed gets a different custom event. If they fail, both TARDISes take massive damage and crash in the same place
    • If both Tardises successfully complete their custom events, the two Tardises will materialise in the interior of the other, which avoids any damage to the subsystems.
  • Fully dynamically changing Chameleon Circuit Disguise Exteriors.
    • These exteriors will try to pick a disguise that blends in with the world.
    • E.g. If in a desert, tries to become a cactus

  • All Tardis Consoles that contained a “monitor” as part of their model will now display the monitor block’s information on the model!
  • Tardis Custom names will display on different parts of the exterior instead of always above the exterior. 
    • The position is dependent for each exterior. 
    • E.g. A police box will show the custom name on the Pull to Open Door, whilst the Trunk Exterior shows the name on the front section of the exterior.
  • Screen shaking 
    • Your screen will now shake during:
      • Tardis takeoff
      • Tardis landing 
      • When using Unstabilised Flight mode
      • When you are inside an ARS Room that is about to be deleted, screen will shake
      • If the exterior is hit by a projectile or explosions and you are inside the interior.
  • Your Tardis will play a sad cloister bell sound when you die
  • Anti Gravity Monitor Protocol. 
    • If turned on, prevents the exterior from falling when the block beneath the exterior is broken

    • Currently this only works for exterior to interior.
    • Known Issue: Flowing fluids will repeatedly appear and reappear at the interior. This is being looked into for future updates.
  • Your Tardis will prevent you from being sucked out if the doors are open. This requires a certain amount of loyalty. (which we won't disclose to keep it a surprise)

  • If any player is mounting an entity such as a chair during flight, if the door is open they will also be sucked out
  • If you were sleeping in a bed when the door sucks you out, you will be woken up and sucked out

  • Sonic will now show warning to player if the target block or entity is not valid
  • Sonics will now show the landing code of a Transduction Barrier Block
  • Sonic Screwdrivers will now use a cooldown when action is processed successfully and when switching modes. This gives time for the server to sync the sonic’s data and prevent abuse of the sonic functions

  • Feedback for when a map is used on the monitor
  • Better particle positioning for Quantiscope


  • TardisHelper#getConsole method is now a LazyOptional
    • If any addon mods are targeting this version, please update your compatibility handlers

  • WELD RECIPES List moved from to

Bug fixes

  • Fixed Sonics mode desync issue, required users to restart world for it to work again
  • Fixed Tardis Exteriors and ARS structure tiles having a desync issue on multiplayer, singleplayer and LAN worlds. The issue caused users to have to relog to make either tile work again.
    • (Needs testing, if this is not resolved, report this to our issue tracker, including steps to reproduce the issue)
  • Tardis energy capability returning undefined value when trying to add the FE buffer to Tardises created in older worlds
  • Tardis Mod blocks not able to transmit redstone signals through them
  • Trunk Exterior advancement description using mismatched translation key
  • Daleks could not be killed with the /kill command
  • Cybergun lasers spawning before they are actually fired, causing a visual issue where it seemed like a duplicate laser entity appears right before the laser is fired by the gun
  • Possible undefined value server issue when Tardises in old worlds created in v1.2 are converted to v1.3, the new energy buffer in 1.3 would return null and freeze the server
  • Typo fixes to manual entries
  • Ship’s Computer not being saved by reclamation unit - didn’t have the item handler capability attached
  • All Tardis mod slabs not dropping two slab items if the double slab blockstate is broken
  • Players sucked out the Tardis becoming stuck in blocks after exiting the vortex
  • Tardis cloister sound could be heard over extremely long distances when it is in range of a bell that was clicked by player, now only rings roughly within 3 chunks (as originally intended) 
  • Patch to Roundel Tap recipe conflict with Artron Convertor, gave Roundel Tap new unique recipe
  • Stattenheim Remote and Tardis Key owner tooltips crashing the client if the owner of the key is not online, now caches username of the player’s uuid and in the case where username is null for some reason, displays raw uuid
  • Tardis exterior duplication bug that occurs when someone pilots a Tardis away, but the owner is near death, so the Tardis will still fly away but also spawn a new exterior block on the owner.
  • Unintended behaviour of Vortex Manipulator blacklist looking for any match, meaning if you typed the ModID of one mod, the entire mod’s dimensions will be blacklisted. You will now need to type individual dimension names for each dimension you want to blacklist
  • Getting sucked out of the Tardis and into the Vortex would place the player in bedrock when they exit the Vortex. You will now end up at the Tardis exterior position
  • Quantiscope recipes sometimes not showing on the client unless the user relogs
  • Unstabilised flight QuickTime events will be less likely to continue to explode more than once after you miss a control
  • Exploit where right clicking with a map on the monitor would allow you to travel to dimension the map was made in. This allowed people to travel to blacklisted dimensions
  • Exploit where the Ender dragon can teleport into the console room and destroy the console. This may not crash servers but it would dupe the exterior and cause syncing issues between the interior and exterior. 
  • All Exteriors and consoles will now be immune to Wither and Ender Dragon block breaking actions
  • Server crash when Tardis materialises below y level 0
  • Addressed monitor scanner mode bug being “locked up”.
  • Monitor scanner image not being saved when the world is reloaded
  • Control animations always showing default state when world is reloaded, now shows last state of the control
  • Fixed Exterior to interior animations and sounds being out of sync with each other
  • Fixed Vortex Manipulator Scanner Function not scanning from the player’s position
  • Fixed Alembic causing a Compatibility crash with Botania ItemFinderItem
  • Fixed a bug where opening the inventory of a Storyteller Villager would crash the client if you’ve already bought a map from it before.
  • Fixed Minecraft shields causing the Tardis Monitor to unable to show its scanner feature until you relog
  • Attempted to address a critical server issue where Tardis landing can cause a world to stop responding and lock up. 
  • Fixed entities with the fish inside interiors that have the Tardis-entities_to_kill tag not actually being killed when the interior changes
  • Made a patch to help address Tardis exterior duplications - if the Tardis thinks it is in flight but it is not actually dematting or rematting for more than 2 seconds, it will remove the exterior.
    • If duplications continue to occur be sure to find out how to reproduce the issue, then report it to Gitlab issue tracker
