    Hi, I've got a question. Which permission do you need, to start a jail vote? Sry, I guess it's a stupid question

    Thanks for help :D

    OK, that got me halfway there lol

    Now, when I select the first corner, it tells me "First point selected, now select the second corner. Second corner selected" all at the same time. I even rolled back to 1.9 and it's still doing it. Now it lets me make the selection, but it forces me to select both in one click, so the prison is one block.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks again for the help.

    @TalonBash: Go

    In 1.10 it changed tools. Check your inventory for a brick, I can't remember off the top of my head.

    Thanks for the work you put in – also, Im a huge fan of CasinoSlots.

    I’m trying to create a jail, but in 1.10, I can’t select a starting point with a wooden sword. When I right click, nothing happens. I tried selecting a cuboid with WorldEdit, but the /jailcreatewe command doesn’t work. I checked the config file, but there’s no entry for SelectionTool in there. Can you tell me what I’m doing wrong?

    Not to be a jerk, but it's because you didn't read the change log of the file you downloaded.
