The staff team are working hard to build a brand new prison to provide a new and exciting experience for everyone. The server will still be non-op and follow the basic principles of such prisons.
The layout of the prison is unlike any non-op prison server to ever exist and bears almost no resemblance to the former Prison Island server. The new map will be hugely refined and made simpler and more intuitive for new players.
However we will be sure to include popular features from the original Prison Island as well as including some "Easter Eggs" as nods to the original Prison Island.
We won't give an estimation on completion time nor will we launch the server incomplete. We aim to have as many features as possible ready and functioning on launch.
I've been trying to find a non op prison for months but convicted got mixed in with OP and mumua got shut down. Can't wait for a relaunch, to join this server and to donate to keep it running smoothly. I'll be checking for more updates
Hello everyone I'm glad to see you all engaged on the forums still and wanting to see the server re-open again. We are still planning to re-open in the future and are currently working towards this goal. This process has been slow and I'm sure frustrating for you but the Staff and I have very busy schedules whether it is work, school, sports or anything of the sort and have not been able to dedicate the time we were hoping. Recently we have been working at getting more involved again in a way that works toward the goal of opening the server.
One thing we are planning to add to the server is new features that should hopefully improve your playing experience and get you to stay engaged on the server for the long run. We would love to hear your ideas as to what could be added that you would enjoy, there is no guarantee that we will use these ideas but if we do you will receive credit for the idea.
Some of the current changes that we have made are as follows:
1. We decided to make D block PVP free. This is so that new players are not killed by older players and quit before they really get the chance to experience the server because they have no real way to defend themselves.
2. We have decided to add a central foyer that will be like old D foyer. PVP Changes to the center etc.
3. We will have 5 blocks all on connected to the center foyer and on their own islands (Prison Island).
We will try and keep you informed as to what is happening with the server with future updates. Thank you for bearing with us through this long rebuild and we hope to see you all on the server in the future when we open.
What happened to SCORPIO? Will there be SCORPIO you ask? The ship what transported many convicted people to Prison Island to face their final journey behind the prison bars. Well, let me share a story about SCORPIO and the Captain of that legendary ship.
One faithful stormy night, it wasn't stormy, it wasn't even night, but all the glory stories starts like that - The captain of SCORPIO, better known as Captain Shananium, was facing faithful challenge in the ocean. He and his ship was in trouble.. deep deep trouble! No one could image the fight and struggle to keep this ship on course. The fight between the ship and it's captain could be one of the most epic in Prison Island history and it was hours and hours long! Sadly.. Captain Shananium and his ship lost that fight and ship ended crashing land of prison Island, collapsing prison walls and giving all the prisoners free route to escape. Cause of this horrible accident and fight behind the scenes belongs to Koskenkorva Viina, (also known simply as Koskenkorva, or Kossu). It is the most common clear spirit drink (38%) in Finland, produced by Altia in the Koskenkorva distillery in Ilmajoki and bottled in Rajamäki. Shananium just could not handle these % at ocean and basically wasn't capable to guide ship safety to prison island. This was sad day for SCORPIO and sad day for Prison Island.
So yeah codycoo1 here (Most people know me as the forever trainee) (codycoo12 cuz I forgot password to codycoo1) I'm just hoping the development at prison island goes great. I have some friends that have been waiting a very long time for it to open and I'm hyped too. So, I would like to say that you guys are doing great SO FAR (I don't have access to the server but, from the pictures I am assuming that the server will be better. My friends and I think that the no pvp at D block is a great idea because they hated getting killed all the time. shan got me hyped for scorpio II, and yeah that's pretty much all I should say well its been over a year now since I have joined prison island because the first time I joined was late june 2015 and I'm so FREAKING HYPED for the server to be back. So, just saying great job and I hope the server turns out great!
I am glad that you are checking the forum often and want to get on and enjoy the server. We are working hard in development to get it out to you and the other loyal players as soon as possible. We however are not going to rush it and release an incomplete server we are going to make sure all the blocks are done and everything is ready to be played. Obviously we cant catch everything but we are doing our best. Keep checking in on the forums I hope to be giving you guys more sneak looks into development every so often.
Our current Development Team includes SKP, Shananium, Haman, Nosetouch, and NinjaPwnz we have recieved help from others throughout the development process and greatly appreciate what they have done for us.
