Prison 3



Ever wanted to make a Prison server but felt it was too complex? Or maybe you felt that it would lag your server lots? You may have just clicked on a plugin that is simple, has lots of features and does not lag.

So what's so good about it then?

  • Easy to make mines (literally just a few commands)
  • The mines reset, automagically
  • The faintest bit of lag
  • Can be setup for certain worlds only
  • Custom & simple built-in rank system
  • A handheld furnace! Automatically smelt Iron & Gold ores into ingots.
  • Level up to freedom! Set your prisoners free after a certain rank using the Freedom warp!

Great! How do I install it?

1. Download the latest version of Prison 2. Copy it to your plugins folder

Yeah. Only one plugin.

See the getting started page!

Prison is developed fully in our free time, which none of us have much of. Not only that but the DMP9 Software website is paid, and costs a fair bit! To help support the Prison developers, please consider donating. It's the best way to say thanks to a developer. Suggested donation is $2 but you decide what you can afford and what the value is to you. If you can't afford it, downloading Prison is more than enough.

Prison 3 Alpha

Prison 3 has now been released in an alpha (experimental) version. If you're feeling brave, please test it out and tell us if you find any bugs or want any other features added to it before we release it. Note that it is an ALPHA version and so we have no guarantee that it will work as intended.


Prison was originally managed by SirFaizdat (from Tripoint Games) who has grown this plugin into the Prison we see today. Every version prior to Prison 3 was made by him. He put a lot of effort into Prison without payment. He really does deserve the popularity. After Prison 2, DMP9 Software took over as SirFaizdat didn't have the time anymore. Prison 3 was then born.

All your tanks thanks for Prison should go to SirFaizdat! This plugin would be nothing without him.
