Hello!
I'm glad to reintroduce our ways of gambling!
We've gotten rid of CityGamble, it was nice while it lasted but time to move on to bigger and better things!
As you can see for the past week Casinos have been reintroduced around prison! More coming soon as well, you can gamble from $1 to $1,000,000 through this way. Risky, but the payoffs can be YUUUUGE!!!

We've also brought back something that has been gone for well over a year! /lottery!
This has been requested several times, and we've gone ahead and added this feature back in to the server.

/lottery will bring up the following message, allowing you to see the current pot and time until draw.
the pot is drawn every hour, so make sure to buy up tickets! You can purchase up to 100 tickets.

/lottery buy <#> will purchase <#> amount of tickets. You can purchase up to 100 tickets per draw!

If you're not on during the drawing, fear not /lottery claim...​

Hello,
Today at approx 2:30 AM CST Node-1 the dedicated server containing our prison and databases stalled, we believe it's related to MongoDB our database application that we use for nicknames & inventory syncing.

Due to the entire machine crashing, we had to force reboot the machine. Everything except the MongoDB databases where in-tact.

We've gone ahead and uploaded a /month\ old backup of the mongo database and Stats/NickNames where rolled back ~1 month.
We apologize for this, we strive to ensure our backups are kept onpoint and have recently moved off manual backups to automatic off-site backups.

The issue lays within that we did NOT have an automatic solution to backing up mongodb. Our MySql and normal server files where being backed up hourly on-site and daily off-site meaning we would normally be able to recover losses in this situation within a hour.

We hope to implement an automatic mongoDB back up system ASAP and hope that this doesn't occur in the...

Hello prisoners, welcome to a CityPrison update.
As many of you know, and take full advantage of our quests system on the prison server, we can finally say we're giving it a little make over!

Since we added the Quests for the most part there hasn't been a 'yuuuge' update in regards to messages, skins and the overall content of the Quests.

Over the past week and moving forward for another 1-3 weeks, we will slowly be transitioning current blocks to a more unique Quest system....
What does this mean? Some Quests will be nerfed, some will be buffed. overall though skins of the quests on the prison server will be updated to reflect a more prison theme & match whatever the quest is.

Please note, this will take several weeks to FULLY happen, you'll see that A-D block Quests for the most part have been changed in one way or another, and as we move forward we plan to do it for all Quests in All blocks.

If you have suggestions for quests on prison or kitpvp, feel free...

Hello There City-Prison! Back at it again with an update!
The new A-block PvP Area has been released.
We have made a few additions to our PvP Arena which include the following:
- The PvP-Mine has been dropped down and has been merged with the main PvP zone.
- The new PvP Zone has been styled to fit the Spawn Theme.
- Many small changes to surrounding obstacles - Things being taken in and out

As you can see, from the top, not much has changed, for the exception that dropping into PvP must now occur through the red lines no longer can you simply drop into the mine and start mining away!
[​IMG]
As you can see, from the bottom portion of the mine several things have changed!

[​IMG]

This spawn will be a trial and not a permanent solution to the A-block Spawn PvP
So overall, although this makes the PvP-Mine redundant in the process of it...

Hello,
Update here and I'd like to have a more formal introduction into minecraft version 1.9+ support <3!

It seems like all our bugs on our Minecraft Prison Server have been squashed with the exception of a few which should be completed by tonight.

1.9 introduces some unique aspects into minecraft that we'd like to begin embracing in the following days of the update while things settle and we can complete our current backlog of development.
We plan to introduce the new Arrows in a unique way Quests, Shops as well as DrugLord!
Note, that nudging people has been completely removed due to the lack of usefulness.
Also note, that we've also reverted PvP to 1.8 PvP style combat (speed wise). The entire "power" and "waiting x time" for you to get a full attack is gone!

1.9 introduces new blocks and we plan to introduce them in the following weeks as well :)

KitPvP has also just been updated and now supports minecraft versions 1.9+ as well!
KitPvP also features similar...​

Network Updates:

<-- | Prison | -- >
Prison has some cool new features! let's start out with Anti-Cheat
We've pushed a new update focusing on making sure some new hacks are more detectable, thankfully on Prison we believe majority of false positives have been squashed out

/Gamble, /Gamble is the latest and greatest addition to the Prison gambling suite.
Start out with doing /gamble, you'll be greeted with a UI like:

Going over a wool you'll see the description of that specific color:

[​IMG]

Here's how the overall system works:
2 people must purchase tickets.
each ticket (red/black/green) costs $20,000
say for example 10 people purchase the tickets.
the pot will become $200,000
If red is pulled (20% chance to be pulled)
a total of $180,000 will be given out, if only one person bought a red ticket that person would get $180,000.
If 2 people bought 2 tickets each (4 tickets total) each person would get...​

Hey guys!
We've gone ahead and buffed up every /rankup kit across the board, on the SwordPvP Minecraft KitPvP server!
We've gone ahead and eliminated our now old and defunct top 3 kits and shifted everything down, so now private is 3 ranks higher! Allowing our new and free to play members to have a greater chance at the donor base, allowing a more fair play and overall a much better experience for everyone!

So hop on now and enjoy the update!

:)

Hello, we've added a minimum requirement of 3 hours to use a range of kits so we can prevent people from simply hopping on to grab the kits and distrubute them, we hope to increase the rarity of some items and increase our economy.

Considers this the Minecraft Prisons Server economic stimulus package....
