Jail is a plug-in that is available for 1499 credits. You can find and purchase Jail in the Premium Features section of the app. You have to enable this plug-in after purchasing before it has any effect on your server.

What does it do

The Jail plug-in allows Operators to put players in a time-out area: they have to spend a certain time there before they will be free to join your server activities again. The default jail time is 1 hour, in which the player will be placed into a surrounded area with their inventory cleared. If they try to escape by breaking blocks or typing commands they will be punished with an extra 15 minutes per try. After the jail their inventory will be restored and players will be teleported to your server spawn. Jailed players are unable to connect to your server with a different account on the same device, they have to sit out the jail time on their account.

Players on your server will be able to vote a player to jail by voting 3 times on the same playername. A player can only vote once every 20 minutes for jail.

If you have Economy enabled for your server, a player can pay a bail of 100 gold per minute they have left on their jailtime to escape the jail earlier.

How does it work

You do not need to edit any settings for the Jail plug-in. You can use the commands below to make use of the plug-in. To set up this plug-in you need to create a jail first, with the /setjail command. Only 3 players can be in a jail simutaneously, but you can create multiple jails. Players will not be able to harm each other while jailed.

If Economy is enabled for your server Operators may also create signs in jail with [Bail] written on the first line. Prisoners can tap the sign to pay bail and escape the jail, for a cash sum of 100 gold per minute of jailtime remaining. Players may also use the /bail command to pay.
