My friend just recently lost her whole server and all of her private worlds that she'd created. So, in honor of her starting up a new one to replace it, I decided to take on a project that I knew would make her happy.


The Tenth Doctor's TARDIS.

The TARDIS itself is made out of blue wool and glow stone. Nothing fancy, because we're on a vanilla server with no mods or texture packs. But I still wanted it to be bigger on the inside. So, rather than building it into a mountain (which I've seen done a lot), or using a command block (which my friend considered "cheating"), I made a long drop with a 1x6 layer of water at the bottom so that you could get an "instant"  new view of the inside.

In addition to the console room, there are three wings... each with a sticky-piston hidden door, covered in vines. I didn't want to ruin the aesthetic of the console room to give access to other areas.

There are 17 rooms (in addition to the console room)...some of which are just storage. But there are the companions' bedrooms:

(What will be) Amy and Rory's room:

The Garden:

It took waaaay too much sandstone, wooden buttons, and time. But I'm pretty proud of it, all the same.

Wow. Astonishingly beautiful.  I thought it would be a statue or a monument. But no, you went over my expectations.

And to go along with this, have a pic of my dalek I made a year ago!

Wow! I love it. You are clearly a fan, love the bunkbeds, Zero room, etc. Nice attention to detail. I'm not keen on the outside to be honest. I think it would look better if it were just 3x3 blue wool, with one door and a tourch on top. Unless you go huge, you can't get any detail in anyway...

Oh, I agree. The outside is terrible. I considered the 3x3 version (because that would look nicer), but I wanted the doors on the outside to match the doors to the console room...so, double it was.
