Prison Documentation

Prison Documents - Table of Contents

The Prison documentation covers the important details on how to setup a usable Prison server. These documents are in a state of development, so more will be added.

What is Prison?

Prison is a Minecraft plugin that adds all the features necessary for prison servers. It runs on the popular Spigot. Plugins for prison servers exist already, but many of them are poorly maintained, and the solid ones are paid resources. Prison eliminates the paywall and the updating hassle, and puts a one-stop solution in their place.

History of Prison

Prison began as a plugin with the goal of combining two main prison server features: resetting mines and purchasable ranks. In June 2014, Prison v2.0 was released with the goal of providing a single solution for prison servers. Prison v2.0 has had numerous problems and is not the solution that we had envisioned for an all-in-one package to be. The solution is the current version - Prison v3.0.

Starting with prison v3.2.0 new development efforts were began with a focus on adding new features and improving the performance and stability.

Why should I use Prison?
