For me alpha's are you about adding content and the beta's are for removing bugs, that being said if the game has major bugs in the alpha version/s they should be addressed.

I want fixed Prisoner and staff AI. I hate when people keep getting stuck in corners!

I concur. As much as I would like to see new content (gangs, more real uses for contraband) if guards, workers, cooks get stuck in corners or doors it does break the immersion.

Not sure if suggested before, but could there be a Prison Policy that would bump a prisoner up in the Security level when he's caught doing something wrong?

For example, if a low sec prisoner is repeatedly getting caught with weapons, can he then be automatically changed to medium sec. And someone who murders someone would be automatically changed to max sec etc.

Zooming in at where my mouse is instead of center screen. And an option to scroll faster.

Really like the alpha 19 and 20 updates, now hopefully we can get more content in the game like gangs, towers, snipers, working execution chair etc. I think it should defenetly need to come next. And for us mac users who have suddenly experienced more performance and glitches, it really needs to be fixed as before please. And please fix so dogs and guards and prisoners no longer get stuck in corners.

Really love the work your doing devs, keep it up!

Best regards

For me, I would like there to be more randomness associated to the prisoners. At the moment it seems they will only cause trouble if their needs are not met. I would like prisoners to keep you on your toes a little. I think a gang system would be one solution. Another idea would be to add more creative ways of causing trouble/escaping. Tunneling seems to be the only way the user has to manually intervene or check up on. I would like to see prisoners messing with the utilities, sneaking into staff only areas and other things along those lines.

I really just want gangs because when you got enough "safety" for the prisoners nothing happens they never try to do anything, if there was gangs atleast they would fight eachother once in a while and you would have to make serpate gang areas. if you mix them up they will beat/kill eachother.

for Alpha 21, :idea: maybe live as a prisoner:chose a prison or randomly chose a prison, next...sellect a empty cell and you can do Action wathever you want(not to escape unless if you dig to freedom)
New rooms, walls, floor, object:recruting center, recruting table, guarden(for flowers, public park, ect...), police cars or trucks
new guy:recruting guards, recrutes, new recrutes, SWATs(require SWAT upgrade)
New things: ranks, promotes guards, guys upgrade, visitor's car(car, bike, truck, taxi, limo), guard's upgrade menu(require chef), SWATs upgrade(require armory)

You guys really need to start optimizing, I have a decent rig and I've noticed in the newer updates the game is started to chug down to a steady halt compared to the earlier releases, but i suppose thats to do with the features implemented.. still, it would be nice if it started running smoothly again before i wont be able to play the game

Thank you

I'd like more features as of now. Maybe Mid-Tier stuff. This is Alpha, not Beta, but my computer burns me after playing this for a few hours.

The devs should do polls each month on what to work on next.

is it me, or do they not even pay attention to the polls. for example, the 2 winners are the mid game aspects (adding new items and such)...but it looks like (at least on my screen from the two bold options) they will work on performance and bug fixing, as oppose to the two winners (percentage wise) midgame and sim systems.
