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!

CraftBukkit & Spigot 1.8.3

The latest version of Prison (2.1.2a) uses CraftBukkit 1.8.3. It works fine with Spigot aswell. Not many people have CraftBukkit or Spigot 1.8.3 yet, as it was released very recently. You can download the freshly built CraftBukkit and/or Spigot 1.8.3 below.



- Totally ALF5


1. Mines system

  • Simple setup, all using a command!
  • Automatic reset
  • Only let certain ranks use the mine!
  • Uses WorldEdit region selection
  • Causes minimal to no lag (and soon even less)

2. Ranks system

  • Easy to configure
  • Add and remove ranks from ingame
  • Uses Vault for hooking into economy
  • Multi-world support (experimental)

3. Built-in autosmelt (/as) and block combining (/block) commands!

4. Update checking

  • Toggle-able through config, see Configuration page for details.


  1. Download and install Vault from its project page
  2. Download and install WorldEdit from its project page.
  3. Click the download button in the sidebar and download the latest version.
  4. Drag Prison.jar to your /plugins folder
  5. Reload or restart your server

NOTICE: This plugin uses automatic update checks. You can disable the update checks by setting check-updates to false in config.yml.

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

    You can't edit it out of the plugin.yml? Use a # in front of it in case you change your mind :D

    Just curious if 3.0 is going to incorporate features like PrisonCells? If you are I won't set that plugin up.

    The prison crew would like to thank everyone who leaves supportive comments on this page, who submit tickets to help us find bugs and for donating! Shoutout to EODCrafters for making the first donation. Yes its money but that's not why I'm mentioning this donation! The fact that you believe in the future of prison and support the devs on this project enough to donate, is something remarkable to think about.

    Is there any way I can disable the /rankup command since it is interfering with another plugin I need

    @TheOneAndOnlyDMP9: Go

    So does this mean my feature request will be in version 3? Also, if I have quite a lot of features I would like to see should I post them all now in one ticket to see a release in version 3?

What should be in Prison 3?
