    Cubecraft is known for having a variety of fun minigames to play in your spare time, but there isn't much to aim towards besides achievements. I feel as though there should be more long-term, grinding gamemodes added, as they keep people playing for months to come, and there's always a variety of things to do on them.

    Prisons server:
    A prisons server is a very grindy, time-consuming gamemode that involves a lot of mining, PvP, building as well as PvE. Upon starting, you will receive a kit (more kits can be obtained later on) that consists of a pickaxe, a sword, some armour, an axe, a hoe and a shovel. Your goal is to gather wood, sand, dirt and stone to sell in a shop for a separate currency that can be used to buy kits, items from other players, items from shops and most importantly, purchasing rank ups so unlock new plots to gather resources from, allowing you to earn money even faster. Once you have enough blocks, money and items you can create a single plot where you can build, store items in chests and create player-made shops to earn you money whilst offline.
    The aim of prisons is to achieve the highest rank and to acquire as much wealth as possible. Once achieved, you can either work on making your plot fancy or you could warp to the PvP area and test your skills against other prison inmates.
    Auctions:
    It wouldn't be a prison server without the ability to auction items that you do not need for money, or to purchase an upgraded tool that could help you in the long run. The commands are as follows;
    /auction
    /auction (number)
    /auction (number) (price)
    /auction (number) (price) (bid increase)
    /auction (number) (price) (bid increase) (duration)
    To prevent spam or over-use of the auction system, a rank requirement of P or so should be implemented before being able to use the auction system. This will only regard auctioning your own items, and there will be no rank restrictions when bidding on items.
    Warps:
    /p home -Takes you to your plot
    /warp A-Z - Warps you to a plot where you can gather resources
    /shop - Warps you to a shop where you can sell all obtainable items
    /PvP- Warps you to a PvP zone where you can purchase potions and fight other players
    /PvE - Warps you to a dangerous area filled with mobs, so you can gather mob loot.
    Tools:
    Since prisons often features entire plots that consist of ores towards the higher ranks, it's only common that pickaxes with absurd enchantments such as Efficiency XX, Unbreaking XXIII, Fortune XVI are distributed so that it doesn't take you 38 hours to reach a new level. These enchantments are just an example, but often times you'll find a variety of different tools with all kinds of powerful enchantments to cater to the higher ranked players so that they don't have to use an efficiency II fortune I stone pickaxe to mine through a field of obsidian and emerald blocks. Since cubecraft is the only server I know to actually follow the EULA, donator kits that distribute these powerful tools will not exist. Therefore, the best course of action would be either through a complicated voting system that rewards items to consistent voters randomly (I.E. 1/10 chance of receiving a fortune V book, 1/100 chance of receiving a fortune X book etc. ) or through staff shops that sell a large variety of tools for extreme amounts of money, and for a limited time only.

    What are your opinions on this suggestion; do you like it, or do you hate it? Feel free to leave feedback and to expand on the suggestion, and maybe add your own. This will obviously be a long-term project for the developers if they choose to create it, but I think it will definitely be worth it.

    I really love prison, it was what got me started in MC in the first place. But maybe there should be an option to prestige once you get "Free". This way people want get bored once they "beat" the gamemode. But of coarse there should be some kind of major reward if they do prestige :) (just an idea, I see this on other servers)

    Perhaps a coloured tag? You could unlock various coloured tags for your rank, exclusive hats and perhaps even point multipliers :)

    Normal prisons is boring, most people play OP Prisons bc it has the illusion of a faster paced game. (and it's cool af to break 10 blocks per second xD)

    I suppose it could be polled if prisons is going to be added, but there doesn't seem to be much economy on regular prisons and the grinding is unnecessarily long since you cannot smash blocks very quickly. I doubt many people will vote for regular prisons to be honest.

    Prison servers are normally for servers that are quite abit smaller than this one, the prison server would be full alot of the time (due to the huge number of players on this server).

    I know theres a creative and skyblock which work perfectly fine but prison tends to be alot laggier than these two types of server and cant normally support the same high amount of players.

    I may be wrong but i work for a prison server that tends to get abit out of hand around 150-200.

    So i think it would be a good idea if they could pull it off and it not be laggy as hell, but i think it would be relatively difficult.

    Violates the EULA (Even tho almost every server has kits for donors, and no punishment has been enforced, sigh)

    I forgot that it had even been suggested. I only suggested it because I thought that people would like it, and judging by the poll I would say that it's quite wanted on the server. The thread you linked also didn't say much more than "I think it should be added because it's fun" (No offense to the original creator) So call this thread an expansion of the previous thread. (Also, reviving threads isn't allowed. The rules say nothing about making a thread that was already created but was forgotten about)
