I am not a modder, but am an avid Doctor Who fan, so I hope to see more on this topic.

I love Doctor Who, I even had a 11th Doctor skin. You could have Daleks. They could be flying around (but very rare to be seen). They would only be killed if you trap and smother them. They could drop Dalekanium. Which is the ultimate fuel source. And the TARDIS should just teleport you to random locations on your map. You could make a Sonic Screwdriver like this:
                                   Diamond
                                   stick
                                   torch

Yeah I thought of Daleks too, and their AI would be simple lol, but  I figured just start with this, but if somehow this was made, i could see an entire Dr. Who mod adding items and enemies.

How's this:
:Glass: :Diamond: :Glass:  
:Iron: :Red: :Iron:  
:Iron: :--+: :Iron:  

:--+: = redstone torch
:Red: = redstone dust

And it could power things like redstone does to make it more like the actual sonic screwdriver.

The TARDIS however is almost impossible... sorry man...

Well the idea is good in theory but actually making the tardis like that would be hard to do but not imnpossible just take a very good modder but i would have it when u enter the door u get teleported to a room somewhere in the world u made hte tardis or found it cause if u understand wat i mean it would be possible.


also the regeneration thing is possible as well cause there is a mod i have that lets u change ur ingame skin and u would just have to connect it the the health bar and make it automatic whish wouldnt be easy.

also like said earlier it would be a good idea having dalek and all those things and i suggest for flying ones just have them different from normal ones like their just rare and the screwdriver actually does damage to it

This is what I saw a good theory, but in actual coding, it might be Impossible. I know it is possible, although the minecraft engine might not be up to it , but in portal 2 they created these 'world portals' to allow them to connect to different levels so thy didn't have to worry about one hallway running into another hallway etc. Here is a video of a mapper messing around with world portals.

Which of course in a game about portals so the coding was already baked in, but even though this is named the tardis mod idea, it would be cool to make a doctor who themed mod with the things that are possible to create.

If you closely read the first post I already mentioned that it should do that lol. Unless you did read it and are agreeing, but it seems you are just stating it as an idea.


QUESTION: Do you guys think if a sonic screwdriver should be made of current ores and items, or should it add its own ores required to build it?

I think the sonic screwdriver is a good idea but I think it should be able to open metal doors as if they were wooden ones

Very good idea! I hadn't thought specificity about that but it could go under what I wrote about it being able to activate any redstone powered device without redstone.

If somehow we could figure out how to make a tardis, one feature would be that it would take you to the x,y,z coords of your choice. Which of course since its the tardis it can't ALWAYS take you to exactly where you want it  ;)

Sorry for the dp, but I updated the thread. I am now looking if we have support to make this a WIP. I am going to see if someone can make the sonic screwdriver item, but for the actual coding and he creation of mobs, etc I will need help.

Well something you could do but it would be rather annoying to come in and out of the tardis is that you could make the inside of the tardis another world?  I know that in the jurassicraft mod there is another world where the Dinosaurs actually are.  Like i said it would be really annoying comming in and out though.

There could be some really unique things you could do with the sonic screwdriver.  It's pretty useful in the show (unhooks fences, checks for brain tumors, locks doors).  

I would love to help you out, I'm in the computer science field and have studied java for almost a whole year now.  I'm currently working on another mod i've promised to do, but when I'm done (it shouldn't be too long) I would love to offer my support.

Here is another similar ideas thread i made that simply focuses on the TARDIS Door
and the creation of rooms bigger on the inside however it is mostly aimed at the practical usage such as adventure maps

I do very much like the ideas here and thing it would be cool to have dalekanium as a nether oreor something like that

Rather than having the added difficulty of making new ores the screwdriver should just be made as suggested in ops post and above. The T.A.R.D.I.S. could be like the CCTV and portal Gun mod which transports you to tardis A which would be at your spawn point and massive, once inside you could use user commands to to run a script which changes the portal guns coordinates and time of day/weather and once you step out its somewhere else.

Great! What I plan to be made first is the sonic screwdriver as its the easiest of the lot so when you are ready to help, that probably will be the one to work on. Yeah The screwdriver could do a lot of great things. And about the Tardis, yeah I thought of that, but I rather not have the load screen.

or maybe another dimension totally, such as Skaro (home world of Daleks)? Now that would be cool, and thanks for the thread link i'll look at what you got.

Yeah thats what I thought, use premade ores. And thats more or les how I planned to use the CCTV and portal  gun mod except I would like if we could figure out how to put the tardis interior out of reach from finding without the tardis exterior, n=but that poses some problems...

You could bury it under bedrock, the tardis door is a good idea too.

I was also just wondering that, if it was possible to put something underneath bedrock.  The problem is how would we actually create it?  Having people downloading a custom map just seems a little lame.
