What will probably be in Alpha 27

Postby JASPer.Gamer.9.0 » Sat Nov 15, 2014 8:11 am

I know what's gonna be in A27:
.GANGS.

3 pieces of Evidence:


1: https://twitter.com/ivsoftware/status/532906694733729793 It shows an 'Army' of cleaners (probably a gang!). Also, it shows 'Green Blobs', which are probably debugging for gangs.

2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0p3EgTP2FYA The video (official) says how boring the bugbash was and how "BIG" features could be expected next month.

3: The most convincing one:
balfro wrote:They are already working on gangs. Find the basic-language file and search for gangs :!: :D
I searched the file and found it [what Balfro is talking about]. I went into the A25 files and it seems the A26 files have more 'Gang' Information than the A25 one!

EDIT: Sorry, fixed the first two links. The capitalization messed them up!

The first link is 404'd, the second link leads to someone else's channel and has therefore been removed, and finally: viewtopic.php?f=42&t=49793 You've made guesses before, and were wrong. It just goes to show that no one really knows what's coming out in the next alpha.

Also, moved to the general board.

Please move it back to the Dev Forum as this talks about ALPHA'S (the dev forum is for ALPHA discussion!)

Thanks for the fixes.

Correction. The developer board houses discussion for the future of the game. Topics found there are mostly suggestions or bug discussions.

The general board is for more minor discussions. It can house questions about playing the game, to people making videos about the game. The only requirement is that discussions placed here must be about Prison Architect. If anything else, it gets moved to the lounge.

Cheers!

The title for General Forum:
General chit-chat and minor questions not related to the game's development.

This is related to "THE GAME'S DEVELOPMENT"!!!

BTW, You're welcome for the fixes. I capitalized things by mistake.

Please move this back to the Dev Forum.

The language strings have been in the game for at least a dozen Alphas. An 'army' of cleaners could refer to a million other things ( a military style update, prisoners will use the bleach, the cleaning system has been updated).

A 'big' feature can also refer to anything. Although I agree that gangs are a big feature that I do expect within the next 10 Alpha's there is nothing that makes be suggest that gangs will be in next Alpha.
If anything I'd say the sprites indicate that hostage situation, and therefor probably an overhaul of riots, will added

the green blobs seem more like collison debugging.

Dude, stop arguing with the forum moderator... he knows how to do his job. And from the plethora of forums I've been on in my life, RGeezy does a kickass job of moderating, he's one of the best I've seen. If he feels this discussion belongs here, then so what. It really doesn't change anything for you except that more people get to read it (a lot of visitors/guests to the forums don't have access to the Developers forum).

Now back on topic... I personally think a lot of work is going into gangs and we should expect them soon But I'm not too sure they'll be ready for A27. My best guess when I saw the coding of A25 and A26 was gangs would only see daylight in A28 or A29. Either way, yes they should be coming very soon, if the devs are able to work out any coding roadblocks they encounter. Gangs as a whole would encompass a whole new aspect and separate branch of coding.

this really isn't a dev topic or even a suggestion...its an opinion on the direction of the game that in my opinion is appropriate for the general public
