Landing Type Selector

About:

The button can be toggled to find the highest available or lowest available position at your destination.

This is useful if you are unsure of the potential risks at the destination coordinates. E.g. Large falls, lava pits etc.

Handbrake

About:

This lever will toggle the Tardis’s ability to remain in its current position, which used in conjunction with the Throttle.

This can prevent the Tardis from taking off on its own if the Tardis’ mood is in a negative state.

Usage:

  1. When right clicked the handbrake will be toggled between an ON state and OFF State
  2. The ON State indicates the handbrake is engaged. The Tardis cannot dematerialise in this state.
  3. The OFF State indicates the handbrake is disengaged. The Tardis will be able to dematerialise in this state.

Notes:

  • The Tardis will automatically land, there is no need to pull the lever again
  • If the handbrake is used to stop flight, it will cause significant damage to the sub systems and may trigger a negative emotional response from the Tardis

Refueler

About:

  • This button allows you toggle the refuelling of the Tardis. It is a necessity if you want to fly for any length of time.
  • The amount of fuel used for each trip will vary, therefore it is recommended that you refuel the Tardis after each flight.
  • Trips that cross many hundreds of blocks in the same dimension or involve travelling to another dimension will take more fuel.

Usage:

  1. Simply click on the button to toggle the refuelling state. A status message will appear near the hotbar informing you if the Tardis is fueling.

    Throttle

    About:

    The Thottle controls the Tardis’ flight speed through the Time Vortex which affects its Time of Flight.

    It also allows the Tardis to safely exit flight mode if they are already committed to an ongoing journey.

    Usage:

    1. To increase flight speed, right click the Throttle control. Each interaction in this way will decrease flight speed by 10%.
      1. To increase flight speed to 100% quickly, left click on the Throttle control.
    2. To decrease flight speed, Sneak and Right click the throttle control. Each interaction in this way will decrease flight speed by 10%
      1. To decrease flight speed to 0% quickly, sneak and left click on the Throttle control.

    Notes:

    • If the user needs to stop flight during an ongoing journey, they must set the Throttle to 0 to safely ease the Tardis out of flight mode.
    • Using the Handbrake to stop flight will cause significant damage to the Tardis sub systems and may provoke a negative emotional response from the Tardis.
    • The Throttle must be set to 10% flight speed or more to allow the Tardis to start its flight. At the end of each journey, the flight speed will default to 0%.

       

    • A faster flight speed means the Tardis will be able to reach its destination in a shorter period, at a cost of consuming fuel at a faster rate.

       

    • A slower flight speed means the Tardis will take a longer period to reach its destination but will consume fuel at a lower rate.
