Ten thousand percent agree.

Set your violence level.
Set it to high and your prisoner will die to soon.
Set low and you'll stick around but will just do the normal thing.

Are they going to get around to authorizing some of these names? Take 5 minutes everyday and knock out a few.

If not. I want a refund.

Not only that, but the forums are not the place to get customer service. You need to go to the support page and send IV an email (which they will answer in a month or two, when they have some free time).

Just submitted my entry. Did my best with the options to make as gender neutral as possible...

I've done a bit of searching... female staff have been added, it appears. Is it known if we'll be getting female prisoners/sprites officially? Can't find an official decision on that.

I haven't been able to find my character at all added. I went through and tried to add myself, but can't find myself in the search.

Do I need to wait for next update to get my character, or...?

Can you not find yourself on the website? or in the game?

If you cannot find yourself in the, that is to be expected---new characters are only added when the game is updated (frankly, I can't think of any other way of doing it in the framework of a single player game that does not require an internet connection). You will eventually appear. If you cannot find yourself on the website where you submitted your entry, there may be a problem, and you might be well advised to email IV.

Wait I'm confused. Do we get our name in the game if we bought it from steam standard edition or not? I didn't know if that was the case or no, since I may have misread something. If not then on the bright side I have access to the wiki and these forums.

The basic Steam version gets you the Base Pack. This does not include the "Name in Game" perk.

That's disgusting! I love it, and your English is better than a lot of native English speakers.

This would be nice. If the bio says the guy has been arrested 50 times for being drunk & disorderly and then the list shows a single conviction for embezzlement, it looks kind of silly.

I wonder if the current criminal records are just generated randomly, or if whoever approves the bios also gets to populate it.

"Struggled against" is mostly used to describe a problem (ex., "struggled against alcoholism"), or a very long fight. A better wording would probably be:

"At age 6, he fought, defeated and raped the family goat. The case was quickly closed, as Thubitt was deemed mentally ill."

Damn, if I just bought the name-in-game pack days earlier it would be in Alpha 26.

Look for Maxwell "Hammer" Edison soon in a prison near you! Props if you know the reference.
