Good design, but i think the tower looks like a tower from world war 2. How about improving it a little in concrete etc maybe?

And then shoot escaping prisoners! OMG YES

Anyone programming this or our hype for this is wasting?

I know that knoest26 is going to work on it by the way.

I think it would be reasonable to have guard towers stationed around the edge of the perimeter to act as a deterrent or a preventative measure against contraband being thrown over the walls (not likely to be possible yet).

When I first saw the mod I thought it would be really useful to implement the air-lock system to the prison, with the only exit door having a double gate system that has to be operated by a guard who can oversee everything in his tower.

Either way it would be a cool little addition, and I really like the graphics.

Once I complete my mod and get a tutorial video of how to do it, I'll look into this. It might be doable if the Object.GetProperty() has some properties involving view distances and such. That's one of the things that is poorly (not at all) documented that could really help us, I think. A list of public variables would be nice.

If you ever need any help with programming I am terrible at graphic design but I could probably make the code for you.

Why so complicated? Why not let the guard towers simply supress inmates in a range of x if a guard is using it?

In the end it is pretty much the same- prisoners behave more as the guard effect is increased and you actually didn't needed to invent some strange super complicated new gameplay mechanic that nobody can script anyway.

I'm not sure what it is you think is so complicated. Increased ranges? If we have access to the property, it's as simple as 3 lines of code. Get. Add. Store. But yeah, suppression I'm sure is linked to their ability to call out for a prisoner to stop.

I kinda tried to make something for the time being...
I don't really know whether i've overlooked some possibility's but I don't think I'm able to make more out of it:

Add a Line if Sight to them and a Red Line, all prisoners passing these will be shot with sniping tazers
