Prison is one of the gamemodes of Minecraft Central. It was added on the 29th of March 2014. The goal of Prison is to rankup to as high a rank as you can. There are 2 Prison servers, the latest server was added on the 23rd of February 2015. There have been 4 resets, 1st one on the 13th of April 2016, the 2nd one on the 8th of June 2017 and the 3rd one on the 24th of February 2018. The 4th reset happened on the 23rd of September 2018. The player limit of the servers was increased to 350 on the 29th of November 2018. It had previously been 300.
The goal of Prison is to rankup from rank A to rank Z9. Players mine ores or wood and try to gather money from selling them. Starting from Prison 3.0, spawners have been an alternative way to get money. The rankup costs go up when players get into higher ranks. Players have their own plots where they can build and store items in. There is also a Wilderness and Mines for each rank, Donators, and Wood. There were originally only ranks up to Z but ranks Z1 to Z9 were added on the 27th of July 2015. There used to be a shop warp before Prison 4.0, but it was replaced by a GUI shop.
The item selector for Prison is Iron bar. The NPC in Lobbies is a policeman holding an Iron bar.
No data except Prison rank is linked between the Prison servers.
There have been 4 resets to Prison. The 1st one was on the 13th of April 2016. The reset added a new spawn, new item collection system, Bulk Selling signs, new designs for every other mine and the removal of ranks Z1 to Z9. They were however quickly added back.
The 2nd reset happened on the 8th of June 2017. This reset added a new spawn, new mine designs, Wilderness, /Prisontop, chest envoys, and spawners. On the 13th of June 2017 Gambling was added. This allows the users to spend money and get good rewards. The prices are 5k, 25k, 125k, 250k, 750k, 1.5 mil and 3 mil. The rewards are double the price.
The 3rd reset happened on the 24th of February 2018. New features in the 3rd reset included /Bottle perk for Diamond rank and higher, the removal of a market warp (GUI instead), new spawn and some new mine warps, the addition of Last Man Standing and updated plugins. Later, on the 29th of June 2018, Wager Duels were added to Prison.
On the 23rd of September 2018 Prison 5.0 was released. A new spawn, mines and plotworld spawn were added. New features included Prison Gangs, Trade command, Coinflips, Boss Battles, Bounties, Kit GUI, Disguises and [item] feature in chat. In addition, Last Man Standing was completely redone. There were also some bug fixes. The Boss Battles were removed a day later, on the 24th of September 2018 due to bugs.
Small events in the form of PvP decoration were common before. In special situations like Halloween or Christmas, the PvP Arena was decorated by the Admins.
The ranks Z1, Z2, Z3, Z4, Z5, Z6, Z7, Z8 and Z9 were added on the 27th of July 2015. This wasn't a prestige system, as the rank progress didn't reset after you ranked up into higher Z ranks. There weren't ranks such as A1, B1 or others either. After Prison 2.0 was added, these Z ranks were removed during the reset but were added back soon after the reset.
The prestige system was added on the 16th of June 2017. Prestiges are ranks above Z and have numbers in them. Basically, after achieving rank Z, you can start again from A1. You can then progress to Z1, and after that start again from A2. The rank up prices goes up after every completed cycle, as the rankup costs double. Each prestige adds a 0.1 multiplier to the regular sell price of ores in mines. The ranks Z1-Z9 were removed the same day to allow prestige ranks.
A big change to the prestige system was made on the 27th of September 2018 during Prison 5.0. Players had used a lot of spawners in previous seasons in order to rankup fast. Due to this, new restrictions were added for the amount of spawners and also a block requirement for prestige ranks. Below are the amounts of spawners that you can place, depending on your prestige. The amount of blocks that are required to be mined before being able to prestige are shown after the first table.
|Amount of spawners depending on prestige|
No Prestige: 15 Spawners per plot
|Amount of blocks required to be mined|
Prestige 1: 100,000 blocks
Last Man StandingEdit
When Prison 5.0 was introduced, the Last Man Standing event was revamped too. The warp can be used about 15 minutes before the event starts. Instead of having the floor disappear when the event starts, players get teleported into the middle of the LMS arena. All players have the same kit:
- Iron Armour (Projectile Protection I)
- Diamond Sword
- 3 Golden Apples
- 32 Arrows
Previously players could bring their own gear into the event. There used to be a limit to how many enchanted golden apples you could use, 10. The timer for the event used to be 60 minutes, but is nowadays 30 minutes. If there are multiple players alive when the timer runs out, the player with the most kills wins. Starting from Prison 5.0, the LMS event is shared between the 2 Prison realms on a separate server. There is a special reward for the winner, a LMS Event Key. On the 25th of September 3 Golden Apples were added to the kit, along with a border that shrinks. A 10 second grace period was added on the 27th of September 2018.
