WIP sTARDISbound - A Doctor Who Mod

    You may have been following my mod work over at Fallout Who Vegas; a Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas Doctor Who mod that has been happily trundling long for the past few years.
    Unfortunately, New Vegas has ground to a halt due to time constraints, but I'm looking to dabble into knocking up a simple teleportable TARDIS for Starbound.
    Of course, the game itself has tonnes of potential, from Dalek mobs to Sonic Screwdrivers and entire dungeons from the Whoniverse; but for now, I'm looking at keeping it simple and implenting a simple Police Box you can hop aboard and zip off across the Universe and be back in time for tea.

    What will it do?

    Initially intended to simply teleport you in the Police Box to a random part of the current planet. Simple enough, couple of nights coding.

    Future implementations?

    If it pays off and works, I want to ideally see if I can get;

    - an interior dungeon setup for the TARDIS, so upon interacting with the Police Box, you port to the ships Dimensionally Transcendental interior
    - Universal flight, so allowing you to either choose or randomise your landing location.

    Depending on how easily I progress through this small project, we'll see how far I take it.

    Planning on knocking up a twitter feed to publish the development.

    Keep the faith :)

    Okay, a time-travel device in a game about going FTL-fast, and going that fast could cause time travel.
    ...A device to travel the many universes in a game ABOUT travelling to different universes...
    "A random part of the current planet"
    *teleports in it into the core of the earth*

    There'll be no dematerialising in solid matter ;) I can't see a feasible way Time Travel's going to work in this right now, so I'm literally just focusing on implementing the Police Box shell and its randomised teleportation.

    I've so far managed to get the object ingame; just now a case of looking into how to tie the blink tech to it when activated...

    Best Idea Ever! I'm in love with Doctor Who. Bring on the Tardis and our Dalek enemy!

    This is exactly what the kind of mod I wanted from this game. Can you make it in the future so that you have a chance to go to a random planet in the sector?

    Thankyou, thankyou :) Will be looking to progress with this after the holidays or thereabouts. Always good to get a feel for the vanilla game first :)

    Various concepts and ideas on how to get it working, even potentially got an idea of how to get the TARDIS interior to work alongside the Police Box...

    My only request for the future of this mod is if you get universal flight work... please make randomize work by running around the 'cockpit' flipping various levers & hitting buttons

    Ok, first post :)
    And, if you've been doing that mod for Fallout 3, of course you will do the most awesome series of "doctor who mods for various games", and maybe even do the most awesome Doctor Who game!

    So we should wait a few months before we get any word about this or any pics?

    That's exactly what I was waiting, I am tracking this thread to see the progress of this mod, only a picture of the TARDIS landed on a planet would make me the happiest guy in the universe
    P.S: never saw a Doctor Who mod with Bannakaffalatta, could you do him?(totally useless, but it would be cool)

    I'm very curious to see how he's gonna make the tardis controls, cause the game is in 2D

    Hard to tell, cause he's also at the same time working on his other DW mod for New Vegas
