Over the past few months we've been developing the new Prison server to bring out our awesome new gamemode to the server! I would like to address a few issues and provide an explanation as to how we will be managing the upcoming gamemode.

▶ Prototype info
Prototype Prison is our dirty version of our Prison server. It's copied over from our official Prison server and given to you guys to test everything out. You can expect several bugs through our Prototype versions as these versions are completely untested. Your feedback and bug reports are greatly appreciated!
While I wont be supporting any bugs on the PT versions, I will be taking your bugs and fixing them on the official version. The idea is to collect all needed information and send it over to the real Prison to have the issues resolved. Once the collected PT issues have been addressed on the real version, we will copy over all the fixes and new implementations for players to test out. This cycle of bug fixes will help us bring out our official server much faster! I would also like to note that every new PT version may result in user data being reset. On the official release, all of your data will be reset!
▶ What you need to know
Prison is still at a 50% completion. Many awesome features have been implemented, but there's an issue with this. While everything may look dandy on the outside, it's certainly a festival going bad on the inside. Prison is a complex and tedious project that requires a lot of time and focus. To answer everyone's question on when we plan to release, we have no ETA. We can certainly speed up the process by continuing our Prototype testing, but I cannot give an official date.
