Alternatively, climb the mountain north-west of Whiterun.

How to use:
To fly the TARDIS, 
1. Activate Dematerialization Primer
2(a). Optionally enter co-ordinates into Nav-Computer or hit the Fast Return Button
2(b). Disengage Handbrake or
2(c). Engage AutoPilot (Do not throw the Handbreak if you want to engage autopilot)
3. Set Space-Time Throttle to full (Only if not using AutoPilot).
4. Follow onscreen instructions (Only if not using AutoPilot).
5. Have a seat or take a RL bathroom break. (Only if using AutoPilot).

Requirements:
SKSE
SkyUI 5.1 (Needed for the TARDIS Menu systems)
Hearthfire multiple adoptions (Only needed if you want your family to live in your TARDIS. ( NOTE: Do not install optional requirement mid-game )
All Official DLC ( Dawnguard, Hearthfire and Dragonborn )

Known Issues:
-  There exists some kind of bug with the Matter Converter script in that if you mix different components that are interchangeable in recipes you
    end up loosing stuff. For example, if you want to make 50 items that require 50 soul gems of any type then use 50 gems of the exact same type.
    Don't mix alternative components in the converter box or you will loose components and or produce undesirable items.

The Programmable fast travel buttons have been known to stop working or not work at all. As such, most people just use the custom location save
    option instead. Once I finish building all the desktop theme rooms, I'll go ahead and see what's up with those buttons once and for all.

- The sonic totem which is used to open a few key doors can break if your  game suffers from lag. This will cause it to freeze and you will not get your
   sonic back. Although a fix is planned, there is a method you can employ to keep it from breaking. Save the game just before you use the totem. Exit
   and relaunch the game from the desktop. This will help clear memory buffers.  once you are loaded back up, just stand still for a minuet or two to
   give your game time to finish any background tasks. Activating the totem should yield  no problems. If it still does, then your computer may just
   have too much work load to handle things. Try closing down outside programs and services and  run the game offline to try and interrupt telemetry
   services.
 
- This mod's update will add SOME keywords to various vanilla game assets for use with the P.O.E.T. This was a mistake and I did what I could to
   back-peddle that. Anyway, it will spark a conflict report when you have other mods that edit those same assets. My edits are not important so
   just allow them to take priority. Your P.O.E.T. will still work just fine.

- If you use the MCM to abort the quest to find the TARDIS and have it come straight to you, it may just cause the interior door to be crooked
  when entering the TARDIS for the first time. Although I have corrected it to some degree, the door can become crooked if the game attempts
  to position the door BEFORE the cell is fully loaded. This is not a bug with my mod but an issue with the game engine as it cannot properly rotate
  objects in areas the game has not loaded up. I am working on a new method to fix it as well as fixing the NPC placement as you enter the TARDIS
  so that you will not ever get stuck should the door be crooked. 

   Should this occur you can correct it easy by going into the MCM menu while inside the control room. Go to where the MCM has you select
   Which era policebox you want; you can find it easy. When you do, you don't need to select anything. Just hit the okay button and the door will
   automatically get corrected from then on. If you still have trouble let me know.

- If adopting, it will take awhile for the kids to eventually show up; just don't wait for them in the TARDIS, any area technically inside the TARDIS
  Which includes Damogran, or in the external area near the TARDIS Oculus or their former home. It could take as long as a week - just do a
  Quest or something, but stay away from those areas or else their arrival could get pushed out indefinitely.

  Plus, make sure you have the HearthFire mod installed and have the Temporal Oculus to Skyrim activated. You need to also cast the Bless
  Home spell provided by the HearthFire mod in the appropriate area. Just the mod's page for instructions on using that spell.

- Secret Dark Chambers is a work-in-progress and not truly ready. Shooting your Sonic at the door will display a message as to how to open
  the door. Yes, I will be making changes to the sonic so that it will give information about things as opposed to just being an overgrown lockpick.
  Spoiler: To open the door you need to be a vampire. Casting Vampiric Drain on the door will permanently unseal it.

Known Conflicts:

- DO NOT install TARDIS HearthFire Patch by Chet for this plugin already does what it does and beyond. Now, I've spoken with Chet and he has some
  great ideas that together we can bring to Reborn; so I'm looking forward too that.

- DO NOT install Prince and the Pauper if you plan to use TARDIS as a family home. For even with its Hearthfire Compatibility Patch, by TMPheonix,
  there are still issues that get in the way of successfully adopting all six kids and getting them to move into the TARDIS. Uninstalling is not enough,
  you need a new game without that plugin.

INSTALLATION

     DO NOT install this plugin on an X-Box or a version of Skyrim that does not support SKSE and SkyUI. To use, you must install all of the official
DLC content which is Dawnguard, Hearthfire and Dragonborn. You need to also install SKSE as well as SkyUI. Load high in load order.


SPECIAL EDITION SUPPORT

You bet! A good friend and fan of Doctor Who, DarthTjaa2040, saw too it to provide for us a ported version of Reborn. You can either find it
here or on the Special Edition Nexus page. I will not be uploading to Steam however because I want to avoid accidental auto-updating messing up
peoples saves with a newer versions.

NOTE: You still need SKSE for SE and SkyUI for SE installed on on Special Edition as well so don't forget that.


USING AUTOPILOT

     To use the autopilot, press the dematerialization button and set your desired location as you normally would. However, instead of unlocking the
break pull the autopilot lever instead. From that point on the TARDIS will control itself. Now, it will lockout access to the controls while it takes over
so don't get worried when you can't do anything with the controls while it's doing its thing. Just have a seat or use the real-life restroom while it
travels. When it's done it will unlock everything and you can venture outside for some adventure.

     Oh, almost forgot, you don't have to remain in the flight room while the autopilot is engaged.


TARDIS Fast Travel

     To use the TARDIS fast travel feature, press the dematerialization button than then use the NAV computer to select your desired destination.
Next, release the breaks as the quest instructs you too but instead of next applying thrust, press the dematerialization button once again. There
will be some violent shaking as the TARDIS screeches to its destination.

     NOTE: There may be a delay before the fast travel takes place if you use the function straight away after loading up the game.


TARDIS P.O.E.T. Hypercube

     Located in the mechanical themed desktop control room you will find a hypercube called the P.O.E.T. (Portable Oculus Equipment Transfer).
When placed in your inventory, you will be given a power to remotely access the Crap-Shoot, its controls, all the containers it sends too and all
the item control levers that direct those items.

     This allows you to access all of them anywhere you travel where baddies are not nearby. Connected to this system are levers (found in the
Greenhouse room) that allow you to redirect items to be recycled via the smelting bins.

     Item smelt-down is not a complete feature provided by this mod even though the TARDIS smelter of options. The system was designed to
complement Complete Crafting Overhaul's smelting options.

     To use, simply fill the crap-shoot with your stuff and press the button or select the button option if using the P.O.E.T. to begin item sorting.
Your items will be distributed to their respective containers throughout the TARDIS. It categorizes important items such as notes, journals, 
artifacts, etc., all things have their place for any well to do hoarder. 



Custom Fast Travel Buttons

     In the console room of your choice, you will discover eight buttons you can program via the new NAV system. Once programmed, they will
function similarly to the fast travel button for faster returns to common places.


New Resources

     On the Captured planet of Damogran (your own personal planet inside the TARDIS), you will find many resources to aid in your adventures. You will
also find a mine that yields salty clay. Now, although salty clay is useless in of itself, you can use the TARDIS matter Converter to extract the salt for
salt piles. You can even use the matter converter to not only make black and other soul gems from scratch, but charge them up as well.

     Although the TARDIS matter converter is its own separate system, I designed it so that recipes for use with the atronach forge located in the
Midden will work just the same on the Converter. Yet, the converter does not function the same way or use the same FX effects. In fact, the
converter is a much more useful and capable device.


INSTALLING AND SETTING UP SKSE

After you install SKSE via Steam,  navigate to (steam - SteamApps - Common - Skyrim). Right-click the 'SKSE_Loader.Exe' and select to
send a short-cut to your desktop from its drop-down menu.

From now on, you will launch the Skyrim game from this executable shortcut and NOT through the Steam launcher. This is important
otherwise SKSE will not be able to establish its system registries and file pass for it to work.

SKSE also expands script capabilities beyond Skyrim's original 32-bit allowing for scripts to move beyond those limitations opening doors to more expansive Mods.

Make sure that before you launch Skyrim via the SKSE executable that you already have Steam loaded up. If Steam is not loaded up, the executable will still launch steam but the file pass will fail and steam will launch Skyrim from within itself. This can potentially corrupt your 
game's .INI files as they might get overwritten launching Skyrim in this fashion.

NOTE: Many veteran players perform tweeks to their game .ini files to both enhance their play experience as well as to reduce lag and CTD. 
            In time, you will Eventually discover just how beneficial those tweeks can be. As such, I always try advise keeping backups of your
            game's ini files if and when that time occurs.


with Steam running, go ahead and launch the game via the new SKSE shortcut you created. When you have made it to the game's main menu
(where you create or continue games) press the '~' key to bring up the console.

Type GetSKSEversion (CAPS not Needed) and press <ENTER>

     If an SKSE version is returned then you have properly installed SKSE. If an Error is returned, then you will need to double check the installation steps.

Adjusting the SKSE ini File

Navigate to (Steam - SteamApps - Common - Skyrim). Open the Data Folder.

At this location, if an SKSE folder does not exist, right-click in the blank space and create a new folder and name it 'SKSE'.

Make sure to uncheck the 'Hide Extensions for Known File Types' in the folder's options if you are using windows.

        Within that new SKSE folder, right-click and create a new text document. Rename the document being sure to delete the
file extension '.txt' that should appear as apart of the name field.

Again, if the '.txt' does not appear along with the name such as 'New Text Document.txt', then you need to go back to the windows
properties and uncheck the "Hide Extensions for Known File Types" in the folder's options.

Name the file 'SKSE.ini'. A window will popup warning you about the file extension select 'yes'.

Edit the skse.ini file using a standard text editor. Cut and paste the text below:

[Memory]
DefaultHeapInitialAllocMB=768
ScrapHeapSizeMB=256

Click save and exit.

This will take advantage of the built-in memory patch that fixes vanilla Skyrim's memory problem by giving you the full 512 MB the game
originally intended the player to receive.

For those new to SKSE, vanilla Skyrim uses two memory block allocations called the default heap (256 MB) and the scrap heap (256 MB).
Upon exhausting it's default heap, Skyrim is known to freeze or CTD when it taps it's scrap heap memory which is actually unstable.

To correct the problem, SKSE adjusts the default heap accordingly, significantly reducing memory related CTD and infinite loading screens.
