Prison 2


Prison is a very popular server theme found on many different servers. However, the setup process is very tedious. That's why I created Prison. This plugin shrinks the many plugins needed for a prison server, such as a plugin that automatically resets mines, a plugin that charges users to rankup, and a plugin that reduces lag, into one simple and useful plugin! Now available on Spigot!

Prison 3

We'd like you to know that the reason of major file release inactivity is because of the 2nd 100% recode, Prison 3, is being worked on. All of my free time is being put into this, which as a Year 7 (grade 7), I don't have much of. Yes the others are working on it but not a lot is being put in without me. Let's all blame homework. Also, thanks to you guys for donating, the bill for has been paid! And with your support & appriciation, I can develop prison knowing that I'll get this support. Because as a company owner, things are getting way to hard. So stay tuned for Prison 3, and make sure you see the prison dev builds. Find them here:

Upgrading to version 2.1.x requries you recreate your mines, as the converter does not work.

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.

    @MCTylerPVP: Go

    As a workaround you could open the jar with a program like Winzip and edit the plugin.yml Just go to the main section and change prison3 to prison.

    @TheOneAndOnlyDMP9: Go

    I guess you forgot rename the package, am I right. It will be great if you would update Javadoc then too in order to use it in the IDE directly.

    Hey guys! Just updating you on development... So some of you may know that the creator of ScoreboardStats might be adding support for Prison in his plugin. Now, If you want custom scoreboards using Prison variables, look forward to that later down the line. "Why did you mention that, dmp?" Well we mentioned that because we wanted to make our plugin more advanced in the form of features, not complexity, so we created an built-in Prison scoreboard, along with the new GUIs in Prison 3. This will appear everytime you enter a mine, break a block in a mine, whenever you rank up & when you do the /prison command when de-opped. (For ops, you can do /prison stats)

    So thats all the news for now, and congratulations to TotallyALF5, the one who made the scoreboard a part of Prison! (We didn't understand, hes a legend).
