Prison Break With OUTSIDE Help

This is more of a mid to late game feature, but I just had to post it.

What if there's a possibility for a prison break FROM THE OUTSIDE every once in a while?
There can be trucks trying to ram into the prison gates, with armed hostiles jumping off and trying to kill the guards?
It's obviously not a common thing that happens, but it does.

The truck ramming may require quite a bit of coding, but what do you think? :D

This can make the game a lot more interesting. Instead of a single fence circling around, you may now want to have double.
You think the cell block is safe just because it's away from the road?
Get the enemies to attack from behind!

Suggestions don't have to be in the developer forum, they can be but there's no real location for suggestions as the dev forum is if you want to talk to other people who have supported PA as well. I actually remember reading something similar to your suggestion]in an early interview on a magazine when Chris presented his idea of Prison Architect he had a 'what if' where you could have a mob truck ram through your walls and prisoners make a run for it. If anything it'd be kind of fun as a type of selectable off a disaster menu similar to Sim City. I think this would be an interesting feature to have eventually.

I would like to see something like this, but in a more subtle way...

For example Visitors smuggling weapons...

Friends throwing weapons over the walls or trying to cut the fence...

Or you have laundry in your prison and the personal is smuggling weapons... (the prisoner clothing's have to get dirty by time...)

No, they don't, but they should be if you want them to be read, discussed and remembered. The devs read every post in the developer forum.

I like the idea! Yeah, why not post in the other forum, and get a debate started? It would be great to get it put in the game!
