Hello! I am writing a blog for all you prison server creators! Many people want to make a prison server, but dont realy know how to! I have successfully made (Due to griefing by my co owner remaking! See bottom of page for info about that!) a prison server!

Step 1) Get a hoster! Without 24/7 running it will not get allot of usual players!

Step 2) Create a domain name! Make it unique! If its the same as another well known one your going to get hate!

Step 3) Build your prison! Do not copy another prison server! Look at a few famous prison servers for some inspiration but do not directly copy nor create a similar prison to the other servers you have went on! If you copy a prison server you will get hate from players and the other server(s)!

Step 4) Make a good ranks! A popular prison rank system that would be good to use without copyright issues would be ranks E-A and a few prestige ranks! Do not name your staffs ranks admin! For admin use something like Warden! Remember to always have a guard rank with special guard permissions and rules!

Step 5) Build stuff for your ranks! Make mines and mob farms! Also make special events!

Step 6) Get the best Plugins for prison servers! Here is a list of great ones:
  • Mine reset light (for resettable mines)
  • Vault
  • Iconomy
  • chest shop
  • paidranks
  • BuyRegion
  • chest keeper (for digital chests on signs)
  • World guard
  • World Edit
  • Group manager or PermissionsEX (preferable PEX, since group manager has data loss crashes sometimes)
  • Essentials (Essentials is essential for EVERYTHING you find on a server!)
  • Votifier
  • BuyRegion
  • ChestShop (for player owned shops)
  • TreeAssist (Only use the replant sapling park, disable Timber)
  • SuperWheat (For auto crop replant)
  • Server signs
  • Any other plugin that would fit in with a prison server that would make your unique


Step 7)Hire a good staff! Only higher people you know well and trust!

Step 8) Set up a PayPal! People will not know where to donate unless you tell them, or you've had it from the start

Step 9) Before you create a planet minecraft page make sure to take alot of photos of your prison!

Step 10) Make a nice looking PMC page

Step 11) Post your server on ALL the server websites you can find

Step 12) Advertise, advertise, I SAID ADVERTISE

Step 13) Done! You prison server is official! Now all you need is a usual player base!

Step 7) hire a good staff! Only hire people you know well and trust!

Step 14) Once you get enough money, buy a domain name/IP address! Its worth it!

After note: It is said to hire only a trustworthy staff for 1 reason: My server got griefed by an admin because they were mad that i wasnt letting them break the rules since they were admin! WHO DESTROYS THEIR FRIENDS SERVER BECAUSE THE OWNER WONT LET THEM BREAK THE RULES!

I do not know what you mean by "Basics", but I must recommend Exile servers as your host. I personally use Exile, and love it. The ticket support is fairly quick compared to all the hosts I've used in the past, and I normally do not have any lag on the server unless I overload it with plugins. The internet speed is also very good, unless you live outside of America, though even my british players dont have too much internet lag, if any.

Hi, My name is cscscs11 and I was wondering if you could help me on my server, ive set up all the mines (sp they reset) but I cannot figure out how to make the ranks (Z,Y,X,W,V,U atm) or the sign shops in my mines,  so I was wondering if you could help, in return i could give you a developer rank, (Which will be all access). So PM me if you can help.

Thanks,

I could possibly do this, and setup a few plugins that help refine the map (that interact with the map) and to give you the basics.

Hey, this might be a bit much to ask but could you make me a prison with all the plugins cause I cant make the plugins and it would take forever to not use world edit. The prison must have mines for A, B, C, D, E, Free and can have ranks for H-mod, mods, H-Admin and admins. In return you will get a admin rank, a high donater rank and be known as the architech of my prison!
Please help! Thank you
