    Can you add back guard option in Jail 3 and can you add that if players leave the cell region (or something like that),guards will attack him,because he just can leave his cell and be in the jail.

    Hi guys !

    When a jailed player log in, his time increase because he is teleport to spawn when isn't logged (i use Authme).

    Could you add a hook for Authme please ?

    Thanks! Land Of Craft
