    Required Plugins:
    1. Vault (Economy & Permissions)
    2. Citizens2 (NPC interaction)
    3. WorldGuard (Jail region management)
    4. Sentinel
    Quick Tutorial:
    • Download the latest version of the plugin and place it into your plugins folder.
    • Start the server, it will auto-create a default config (plugins/jailer/config.yml)
    • Edit the file and setup the worlds (or copy the default for each that you want the plugin to function in)
    • Using a permissions plugin, make sure you have the three groups that are in the config (Defaults: WANTEDCRIMINALS, JAILED, FUGITIVES)
    • Create a worldguard region covering your jail area
      • /region create tutorialjail
    • Create a jail /np createjail {short name} {region name} {Display Name}
      • /np createjail tutjail tutorialjail Tutorial Jail
    • Now add cells, stand in the cell where you want players to be sent. type /np addcell
    • Create an NPC in or around your jail that players can access from inside
      • Select that NPC and type /np npc
      • Click on the X inside the menu option. It should turn to a checkmark. That person now accepts right clicking.
    • Create an NPC outside the jail
      • equip them with a weapon
      • For sentry use the following commands:
        • /trait sentry
        • type /sentry target add group:WANTEDCRIMINALS
        • type /sentry target add group:FUGITIVES
      • For Sentinel use the following commands:
        • /trait sentinel
        • /sentinel addtarget group:WANTEDCRIMINALS
        • /sentinel addtarget group:FUGITIVES
      • type /np npc and check the box for guard, should show a checkmark now
    • create another NPC to attack within 25 blocks of the guard
      • Attack it, and you should see a warning or bounty. The Guard should start attacking once your harm the NPC enough.
      • When in jail, right click the NPC you created in there and a menu should come up.
    • Quick visual layout of a simple jail.
      • 1: I tend to place the judge/jailer in a location that both outside players and arrested players can interact with them.
      • 2: Cells are the locations i use to set where the player will be sent to after being arrested.
      • 3: Create a method to get out, i use iron doors to ensure the NPC guards cannot get into the jail (Tend to use a set of two to ensure they do not get into the jail)
        • If a player leaves the jail region, they will be converted to escaped and using Sentinel or sentry you can have the guards hunt them down.

    * This plugin uses the plugin Metrics system. If you want to disable it, open /PluginMetrics/Config.yml and set opt-out to true. Mostly for my curiosity :)

    Yes! It's the perfect plugin that I've been looking for but can you make it so that if players are seen with some kind of items near them, they will start attacking them?

    For example, i need to have guards attack people that have drugs in their inventory. Could you please do that?

      Let me look Into it for you, so in their inventory, or in their hands?

    Dev responded to a major issue in a previous version and fixed it immediately. No other problems were found with this plugin and the concept is truly one of a kind. A must-have for any RPG community server.

      Appreciated you working with me to figure that out. I always want to ensure things are as good as they can be. Let me know if you have ideas, questions, etc.. I may not answer right away, but rest assured that I will.

    Great plugin. It works very well, but I had one problem/question. Does this work with multiverse? I had a prison in one world, and just a normal world in the other, but the cops wouldn't arrest, they would just kill. It would be perfect if it worked with multiverse. Otherwise, amazing plugin, great job!

    1.7.10 support ?
    1. Nutty101
      Author's Response
      Doubt I could with some of the stuff I am doing. Between Citizens, Worldguard, and Spigot I doubt. 1.8.3 is really the lowest it supports at the moment.

    This plugin looks great, but in my 1.12.1 server /np addcell or /np jail doesn't work at all, it doesn't spell out any errors it just doesn't register i think. And the language file is hell if you want to modify it, but I will rate 5 stars because I trust that the dev. will soon fix these issues, I really like the concept of this plugin.

      I think I have resolved the addcell issues you had happen. As for the language files, PM me or hit me up in the discussion area. Let's see what we can do to make things easier on that front. :)

      That would be awesome, but crazy hard to pull off with NPCs. :( Glad you like it though.
