Topic: Shrinking prison and the infinite rage loop

Been playing around with the Infinite Rage Loop and I have some feedback. It looks to be a problem with continuous job function - normal jobs that prisoners do to fulfill their needs, like phoning home, going to the bathroom, sleeping, etc. It seems like the program needs to constantly renew the jo...

I can't check your prison out as I am on terrible internet in the Falklands Islands this week, before joining my vessel. So my steam is locked in to offline mode :lol: But yesterday I had 90 prisoners and my family need and recreation went flying up. I found telephones and televisions only helped i...

First thing here to mention is.... you shouldn't have the cash to build such a massive foundation in one go, so I don't really is it as a massive problem. Also it has been reported on Mantis, it also occurs when creating large areas of grass and such for myself. Surprised it occurs on your computer...

Though my game runs fine in terms of fps, I have exactly the same problem with the needs of my prisoners, also in every single prison I built since Alpha 9. And I started a completely new map on every new Alpha, the problem always pops up. I'm not raging here, because I understand quite well what A...

I get it's an alpha. Does anyone else have issues with prisoners not doing any activities?? It used to work just fine until the Alpha 9 or 10 update. I made a youtube to show foundation causing lag: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xhcwg5OI3pE if anyone wants to check it out. Why would I delete my pos...

I'm just upset, that's all. I understand it's an alpha, but it's irritating when you can't even play the game :? I've been waiting for two months now for a fix but nothing yet :cry: Making a new map does NOT fix lag issues, it might fix problems with my prisoners, but simply making a LARGE/MEDIUM ma...

Broken Needs System? Not to mention TERRIBLE performance.

Why is the needs system for my prison completely broken. 98% of my prisoners will NOT exercise, will NOT shower, will NOT sleep, will NOT do anything recreation/family related. They won't even use the bathrooms properly in their own cells. I think about the ONLY thing that works properly in my priso...

Intel Core i7 2600K 128,300 MIPS at 3.4 GHz (Mine runs 3.8Ghz for comparison) That's 128,300 MILLIONS of instructions per SECOND. So, we're seeing about .5FPS, the game is not even using 1/8th of the CPU effectively. Game likely uses at most two threads. The number of calculations is not the issue a...

His game IS lagging, not sure how you're not seeing it. It lags for EVERYONE. This game is bottlenecking at the CPU.

Replies: 7
Views: 258

This definitely happened in alpha9. Workers in laundry if more than 8-10 get stuck in the center trying to move to the center endlessly. Also, prisoners in combat with guards results in guards stuck on the other side of a wall or just around a corner trying to get in the door all confused keeping tw...
