    Make sure you don't have something disabling your clicking, such as vanish or god mode or anything.

    I will be uploading it shortly, since the current version has lots of bug fixes. Then after this update there will probably be one more beta before we go to a production version, the last beta will contain the guards and other things.

    What do you mean?

    I'm talking about a list of things someone could be jailed for. So I can provide a list of rules.

    There is a record of times a player has been jailed, yes. The only way to modify it is to jail someone
