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.

    If you are using GroupManager, Make sure your players have the permission modifyworld.* and make sure you set all build: false to build: true in your groups.yml file.

    Hey! I'm having trouble with the mines. The problem is that all op players can break blocks at the mine, but the players cant! I even got rid of the region flags, and it still doesn't let players use the mine! Even if they have the associated rank with the mine. Please replay ASAP I need help to fix this. Thanks!

    DMP9 is gone for another week still, so don't expect to see the release until after next week. Sorry! If you find any more unreported bugs in Prison 3.0, do not hesitate to submit a ticket so we can make 3.0.1 even better :)

    I'm gone for 2 weeks! - Vacation

    Hey guys! Just letting you know that I won't be very active on this page for the next two weeks. This summer we're taking a family vacation to France. SirFaizdat & the others might be on, but I probably won't be.
