About SimpleJail

This plugin gives bare basic jail functionality. It allows you to set two points: the Jail point and the Unjail point. Then, when you jail a player, he/she will be teleported to the jail point and demoted to the Permissions group specified in the config.yml. Unjail will re-promote the player and teleport back out of the jail to the unjail point.

SimpleJail 3 is now complete! It is a complete rewrite from the ground-up. It shares no code with SimpleJail 2.x. However, the featureset has remained exactly the same. This does not mean that it's just a useless update, though, since it basically makes the codebase maintainable again. This will hopefully make updates less of a chore in the future.

Please note, SimpleJail 3 is not backwards-compatible. You cannot just drop it in and expect everything to work. You must delete the SimpleJail data folder before running SimpleJail 3. Fortunately, I don't expect this to be too much of a hassle since the plugin is so simple. While I have tested SimpleJail 3 thoroughly, since it is completely new, it may have bugs. Please, if you find any, report them here, do not just leave a comment on this page. Even if it's a feature request, feel free to open a ticket there. It's easier for me to manage issues there than it is on a comment page.

Finally, about the future of SimpleJailCells: it is not currently updated to work with SimpleJail 3, but I would like to do so sometime soon. With a completely new version with a new API, I think I can get something working, but it's a tricky issue. I'm still somewhat opposed to adding cells as a core feature, simply because I'm worried about feature creep, but I haven't ruled it out yet.

Thanks for sticking with SimpleJail.


  • Use /setjail and /setunjail to easily set the two teleport locations
  • Set the group that jailed players will be demoted to in the config file
  • Players' initial groups are saved, so a normal jailed player will revert to a normal rank when unjailed, and a player with the VIP class will revert to the VIP class
  • Works with Vault
  • Players in jail will respawn in jail
  • You can tempjail players who will be automatically unjailed after a set time
  • You can jail/unjail players even while they are offline

Permissions nodes:

  • simplejail.jail — Allows the use of /jail
  • simplejail.unjail — Allows the use of /unjail
  • simplejail.setjail — Allows the use of /setjail and /setunjail
  • simplejail.jailtime — Allows the use of /jailtime
  • simplejail.* — Allows all SimpleJail commands

  • Bugfix update to actually make use of MCStats metrics

Changes from 3.0.0: A completely rewritten SimpleJail, built from the ground-up. There aren't really any new features, but there are a couple of changes to be aware of.

  • SimpleJail now requires Vault, rather than it being purely optional
  • Completely restructured internals should make the plugin less buggy and easier to update
  • A brand-new messaging system means everything should look nicer and feel cleaner

SimpleJail 3 is not backwards-compatible. To use it, delete the SimpleJail data folder and start from scratch. Sorry for any inconvenience, but the formats were too different to be trivially converted automatically, and I figured the hassle of reconfiguring the few options the plugin has would be a minor issue.

See the main description for further information about SimpleJail 3.
