Prison Gamemode Tutorial

Version: The main version is 1.16.5
Supports: 1.8.9 – latest
Recommended Version: 1.16.5

Quantum Galaxies Prison is similar to other prison servers, and yet also different in many ways. An overview of what the Prison gamemode is:

You will spawn without much. You’re the newest prisoner and you need to create your gang and rule the prison. If you don’t, another gang will rule and you’ll never earn respect. You have to /rankup in the prison system, until you reach the top and you can be a real boss, bullying the new prisoners and taking their stuff. You will have some freedom and space, according to your global rank. The higher the rank, the more plots (prison cells) you get and you can merge them. 


In the spawn world, you’ll find almost everything you need, such as:

◘ Mine A [warp a] which everyone starts at, no matter the global rank. 
◘ The Shop [warp shop] or /shop, to purchase everything your Prison rank has access to. As you rankup in the prison system, you get access to more shops. 
◘ Crates [warp crates] where you can open your keys, received from voting or purchased from the store
◘ You can enchant your items at [warp enchant]
◘ See the rank permissions at [warp ranks]
◘ See the Leaderboard at [warp stats]

Other warps that are not in the spawn world, but you have access to:

◘ You need to eat, so you may use the prison farm at [warp farm]. Here you can also sell extra food. 

◘ Warp to [warp chestshoptutorial] to see how to create your own chestshop. Who knows what you want to trade in, but in case you want to, you have that option. 
◘ If you like fishing, you can do [warp fishing] to try your luck or just relax a bit. Prison life is tough. 
◘ You need to sleep and have a place to hide your loot, so you can do [warp plot64] and then do [plot auto] or find an empty cell and do [plot claim] inside the plot. More permissions listed below.
◘ This warp deserves a special mention, because it’s a hangout place for the guards, officers and warden. You will find many easy ways to make money (or lose some) at /warp tavern. More detail below. 

Now prison life can get boring if you don’t want to stab people and take their clothes every day. And you cant just dig around in the prison yard and fish, so you can keep yourself busy with the following games: 

◘ [warp parkour] to jump around endlessly and flex about your selfie on the wall. 
◘ [warp potato] is a tag or hot potato game. The more people who play, the more fun it is. Run around in the prison yard and try not to get tagged (be a hot potato). 

◘ Do [warp quests] to do some daily and/or weekly quests for money and other rewards. 
◘ Visit spawn and go to the prisoner [NPC] called “Achievements” to see which achievements you can do for some extra prison goodies. 

When you have enough money to level up or rankup in the prison system, do /rankup. This will give you access to the next prison yard (mine) and also additional shops. Explained below.

How to rank up and what are the ranks?

We have our usual global ranks Mercury – Neptune, which come with their own perks. For those you can Rank Up using Vouchers, which can be found in game, either in the Crates, Store or in our /PointsShop.

If you decide to Rank Up using the Store, you get some additional goodies and you also help us support the server. All the rank perks are listed on the store.

Additionally we have Prison Mine Ranks aka Levels, which go from A-J and then 6 Prestige Ranks, P1-P6.

You start at Level A. You have access to the Mine A. You mine there and sell the resources you get to earn money to Rank Up to Level B. Once you ranked up to Level B, you now have access to the Mine B. You mine and sell the resources to Rank Up to Level C and so on…

Once you have reached Level J, you can now Prestige by using the /prestige command. Each Mine has different resources and selling prices.

You Rank Up to a higher Level by using the /rankup command.

You can do /warp shop in game and go to the OTHERS section, which will show you what each additional level gives you in the shop. For instance, when you ranked up to Mine/Level B, you can now access /shop mineb and purchase stone, cobblestone and crafted items, which isn’t in the default /shop all players can access. 



Get player points by voting for our server. You can buy 3 ranks with player points, or some special effects/permissions. You can also purchase bigger plots from the /pointsshop


Use the /trade option for safely trading xp, player points, vouchers, ranks and money. This eliminate scamming 100%, so if you get scammed, we will not replace the loss. Scammers however will be banned.

More Info:

• When you join you have access to 1 x 64×64 Plot.
• For more or bigger plots use the Crates, PointsShop or the Store.
Each Prison Rank/Level comes with access to their own Shop (e.g. /shop minea).
• Playtime Rewards: You get rewarded 1 Player Point for each hour of playtime.
• Spawner Limit per Chunk: 15
• Hopper Limit per Chunk: 60
• You can afk 30 minutes without being kicked, unless you are Neptune rank [no afk kick].

• Auto pickup is enabled, meaning when you’re mining, it goes straight to your inventory. 
• Everyone has access to /sell all, no matter the rank, so use /sell all to sell the items in your inventory. Be careful not to sell useful items. Use /sell hand for the item you’re holding. 
• Night vision is toggled on by default in the spawn/pvp area. Use /pweather and /ptime to toggle time and weather for your player in the plot world.

◘ Here you can make easy money at the slot machines. You can win from 2k to 40k. 

◘ Also visit Carlos, who’s the bartender and loves to play gamble games. Catch him on a good day and double your bet! (100k !!)
