Release date for the next patch?

Postby xsuite » Wed Apr 17, 2013 8:23 pm

Any word on when we can see the next build? I can't wait to continue alpha testing.

Judging by their past releases, probably sometime next week at latest but I'm just as happy if they don't and keep developing more content.
Yes, that is a penguin with rabies. Deal with it.

You are aware that they are not patches right? All the alpha builds I've received so far have been the full package, and you replace the old one. There is no patching.

It might be different now it's on Steam though.

I suspect it might be a little longer still. There are some clues as to why:

IntroversionSoftware ‏@IVSoftware 16 Apr

Today's bug: Some visitors died tragically in a fire in the Visitation room. Then at 8pm when visiting hours ended they went home.


3. Private industry income from prisoners working on site. You will be able to employ your prisoners to produce trinkets from raw materials—e.g. number plates from sheet metal, which you can then sell for a profit. Pay your prisoners a small wage (which they love because they can then buy basic items from the shop like cigarettes, phone cards etc), and use the profits to expand faster. The only danger is the number of tools your prisoners will undoubtedly need to do the work. This is an upcoming feature planned for alpha 9 or alpha 10.

and still from that article, the biggest:
Alpha 9 and Alpha 10 are both going to be pretty big updates. Beyond that point, our plans get much more vague.

They also said somewhere that linux support was coming in late april or early may so that gives us a timeframe on when exactly this bad boy is coming!

A poll? Sorry but that is just retarded. Why the hell make a Poll about the release date?

I'm not sure if we are supposed to ask when updates are coming out because it was clearly said "Once Every month"
I'm also not sure what you have against gay people, but whatever, I'm not going to make a point out of that.

Hey! You're going off topic!

On Topic:

They normally come the 20th. But some bigger updates come on 30th ;) So this release will probably come the 30th.

"Gay" has a whole other meaning that runs parallel - it has nothing to do with homosexuality and everything to do with stupidity. That's something every Internet warrior should know. I just taught you something. :wink:

You think fanciful people are brightly coloured? That's racist.

The remark isn't just disparaging toward those it's directed at. The whole use of the word "gay" in that context originates from a deep-seated homophobic culture on the internet and in gaming. To encourage it as if it weren't harmful is disingenuous at best.

The fact that this game is a prison simulation already results in lame rape jokes. I see no reason to encourage it. :roll:

Sorry, didn't mean to cause offence. To clarify, I think brightly coloured people are gay.
