In-game Parole

IRL, parole is the early release of prisioners under certain conditions, and people serving parole are still considered serving their sentence. In game, this can be simplified by giving jailed users access to more resources in an isolated area and allowing users to leave jail for a certain amount of time, under the following conditions:

  • Users serving parole should stay in the parole area when moderators (users with kick privilege) are not online, and they are allowed to leave the parole area for 15 minutes every 30-minute-period. This can be enforced by setting the parole area.
  • Users serving parole should not do anything against the rules.
  • Users serving parole have access to more resources (incl. more items, lighter sentence, and larger area) than in jail, but the parole area should still be isolated.
  • Users serving parole have the right to apply to leave jail after spending 7 days in parole without criminal record.


  • any moderator can send jailed users to parole, if the moderator believes that the jailed user behaves well.
  • a special area should be built for users serving parole.
