All Official DLC ( Dawnguard, Hearthfire and Dragonborn )


Known Issues:


- 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 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.


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.


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.
