All aboard! Next stop, City of Brass!
This complicated spell can established a sort of interdimensional railway which is traversed by a magical container known as a User Navbox. The spell must first be set up by placing two or more "navigation endpoints", magical focii of rune bearing die-sized cubes that are placed in the desired locations around the multiverse where you wish to travel. These cubes have hardness 20 and 40 hp, and are usually kept safe. They require a 10 ft cube of free space around them to function. Casting this spell locks the cube into space and marks it as an endpoint. Endpoints have a specific resonance specified by the caster indicating it part of the same track.
If there are at least two navigation endpoints of the same resonance the spell may be cast on any one endpoint to add the "User Navbox". The endpoint appears to grow to 10 ft x 10 ft x 10 ft and opens up allowing creatures to move inside its hollow comfortable interior. With a command word they may travel to any other endpoint arriving there in 1d4 minutes (or 1d4x10 minutes if on another plane). The box appears to shrink back to endpoint size upon departure.
Anyone with the proper command word can operate these endpoints and summon the User Navbox at this point. There is only one User Navbox, and if it is in use the endpoint will be in pending state and will recall the Navbox to its location as soon as it is freed up. Additional Navboxes can be added to the system, or an additional endpoint for the same resonance can be added for the cost of additional focii.
User Navboxes are self contained on the interior and always bearing comfortable living support, lighting, and oxygen. However this protection only extends to the cube, and you are subject to the environment around it the moment you leave. A single cube can store up to four Medium creatures comfortably, or up to 16 if fully packed with no sitting space.
Focus: Each navigation endpoint is a metal rune-bearing cube worth 1000 gp each. A minimum of 2 are required for a track.
