This, I recently come across a prisoner sentenced to 152 years; I don't expect him to walk out of my prison!

I'd like to see a few more options on the deployment screen. The ability to make an area off limits to staff and/or visitors for instance. There are some rooms I'd like to make no go areas for my prisoners, but only at specific times.

support for segregated prisons sections

assigning prisoners to set cells

saying what rooms can be use by people in that cell,
i.e cells 1 through 5 use shower block 1
cells 6 through 10 use shower block 2

multiple regime and ability to assign a prisoners (or better the whatever prisoner is in a set cell) to a set regime
i.e cells 1 through 4 are on shift "1" and work at the workshop 6 to 2,
cells 5 through 7 are on shift "2" and work at the workshop 2 to 10
cells 6 through 10 are on shift "3" and work at the workshop 10 to 6

guard dogs patrolling the perimeter sound cool as well set to attack anything that walk in a set area that does not look like a guard(and let prisoners be able to steam guards uniforms)


actual thats should be a way that they try to escape stealing a guard's uniform and just walking out the front door

Yeah, multi threading support; that would help the game not to lag to death after you got more than 100 unit to deal with. It's so hard and complex enough to implement (but mandatory for performance) that should be done during Alpha phase.

multi threading support, lethal weapon like m4 carabine, non lethal weapons like teasers, sniper, ganga, escape attempt, yard with sport activity like basket, a better patrol assignement for checking cctv monitors: I have 8 cctv monitors with 2 guards: sometimes both watch only 4 monitors ignoring the other 4.

A 3rd, faster, speed setting, better pathing and optimizations.

Higher risk prisoners give more money and lower risk prisoners give less.

Guard dogs, that can sniff out smelly contraband from nearby prisoners. Can be deployed on patrols.

Further grants would also be nice. Say "Cell Block B: Increase prison capacity to 30" or "Productivity: Make at least $3000 profit from license plates" or other simple ones.
It would give some nice direction and extra money.

Ability to assign visiting hours in the regime when families can visit. It's annoying when families visit in the middle of working hours.

Letting workers do all the delivering. It would be nice if workers took care of delivering ingredients and sheet metal.

Well in the alpha 12 video, they said that they are going to continue on with alpha 12 contraband system, I suspect guard dogs, passing contraband and a small addition of gangs to be included. Punishment is also something i think really highly to be included

I really hope they will divide the ''objects'' button into ''objects'' and ''decorations'' so it'll make it easier to find objects in particular. It would be nice if they could group particular objects that goes in the same type of room next to each others so it becomes easier to find what you're looking for.

A faster time button would also be a nice addition.

Have to say... mostly guard dogs

I think they kinda hinted at them in the A12 video, as a way to detect contraband such as drugs or cigs.

As mentioned before, they said they would continue on contraband. I personally hope this includes uses of contraband, like prisoners smoking in the yard, drilling a hole in their wall, using a hammer to break down a door, not eating because a shakedown took the drugs and they are now in withdrawal..
