one of biggest things I want is for that thing mentioned where prisoners have a record you ccan review of like their stats and whatnot. That way you can know who to make high security and whatnot. Also like the other idea where prisoners are more independent and smarter like how was said that they would go out and map their own way to escape. I feel AI intelligence very important to this game.

9. Currently when running a prison the tendency is that maximum security prisoners get all the luxuries to avoid riot and the minimum security prisoners you can leave with allmost none i should be the other way around or at least something you have to earn as an inmate

Please, make this a priority. I can't play the game ever since I got Windows 8. I don't really have time or motivation to create another windows profile right now.

Well in my case the letters that are replaced by "???" are "úš".
I have a feeling it hasn't been fixed in Alpha 17. :-(

id like the workshop to better allow for more prisoners as currently i can have say 9 machines but only 5 prisoners there.
blockades where like the riot they take over a section say the canteen but move the table to the door and guards have to break it to get in, then allow for tear gas to get rid of them.
could also for a prisoner type (saw in already suggested, but not listed) a commander type or leader who when taken down reduces anger levels/riots by huge amounts.
those ballbearing grenades.
saw 2nd floors listed but what about gangtrys (walk ways above for guards).
basketball court, baseball field, football field (not enough in the yard).
solitary 'holes' in the ground, yard possibly?
bad guards that beat prisoners and try to do it when your not looking.
outside breakout attempts to get people out, could be linked to the profiles suggestion.
crazy people + padded cells.
library rather than just book shelves, library trolley around cells.
post system (help with family need).
calming classes like art.
doors that have a stationed guard at a desk like real prisons have.
different vehicles for different prisoners e.g. low profile arrive on a bus, medium on a armoured bus, high in armoured vans.
escape attempts inside garbage bags.
break trees for stick weapons.
with the suggestion of the prisoner behavior they could have bigger cells/luxieries as a 'eligable for' on profile or even a need which can be removed for bad behavior.
the high risk prisoners suggestion, have paedophiles or such like that need there own 'times' to avoid being murdered instantly.
the lawyer will be for reducing fines (as far as i know) but what about adding a parole court into the prison.
set some prisoners as 'guards' to help keep the peice.
prison gangs (race, sexuality, etc).

other things i think are already going in/suggested but i want to reiterate:
different wardens - each having a bonus to something when you start a prison.
sniper towers with search lights for night time breakouts (secutures/scissors to cut the fence etc).
power cut riots/ mass escape attempts.
3rd world prison selection so its really bad but your not restricted to fines and such like for deaths (maybe a sandbox mode).
decade selection so you cna have a 60,70, etc prison with different laws, textures and restrictions. (might be abit much).

sorry for any of these that i missed on seaching the forums and reading the already suggested list, im not the best with forum stuff.
listed with a friends to save on forum posts.

I have some more suggestions for you:

prisoners:
1. prisoners can escape in a garbage truck
2. if there will be a poisoning food possibility the poisoning prisoner won't eat
3. prisoners can steal other prisoner's contraband
4. prisoners can create weapons from stuff in their cell like bed posts
5. prisoners can tell the guards if another prisoner is hiding contraband
6. prisoners can fake a fight or create a false riot for other prisoners to escape while all of the guards are busy
7. prisoners can sneak contraband to other prisoners through the clothes that they are distributing
8. prisoners will steal handcuffs from guards to neutralize a staff member

staff:
1. you can set individual armed guards to be in weapons free mode.
2. doctors will be able to "accidently kill" a prisoner
3. multiple workers will be able to work on the same tile to build it faster
4. decrease armed guard's costs and wages
5. psychologists will go and talk to prisoners to hear about their problems

rooms:
1. range for the armed guard to train in
2. make execution work
3. carpentry
4. parking lots

emergencies:
1. create a use to the hearses
2. riot guards will use rubber bullets and tear gas rather than buttons

So I just found out that answer to this is no. As much as I love the game and respect the team, but that is an extremely poor design choice. I mean, have you ever seen 1-floor prisons (except concentration camps and gulags, that is)?

Now, I also understand that it is now may be too late to implement that feautre because the game was initially build around the 1-floor only idea.
