Re: Game forcefully restrains prisoners in unsecured cell bl

For a few months now we've had an error message that notifies players that there's no access to the canteen because of this behavior, but all that's done is change the thread titles from "prisoners to nothing" to "no access to canteen?!" This is still a show stopper for many new ...

Re: Game forcefully restrains prisoners in unsecured cell bl

This behavior is still producing tons of "prisoners not going anywhere wtf do i do" posts . I'm surprised there's so little support being shown here.

Game forcefully restrains prisoners in unsecured cell blocks

Over the last month or two I've very fequently seen inexperiencd players get completely stumped, confused and frustrated because their prisoners would not leave their cells to follow the regime or otherwise satisfy their needs. The culprit always ends up being that there's a clear path from the cell...

Re: Riots after shower time

I think some of you are being caught unaware by the time warp factor placed on prisons that are started as Large. In these save files the hours are twice as long but the simulation runs at the same rate so needs shoot up seemingly too fast. For me dinner at 8, free time at 9, sleep from 10pm (hardco...

Re: [Suggestion] "Deathrow" ON/OFF Option

Everything that hints at death row outside of Bureaucracy is hidden as it is, I'm not convinced that being faced with a checkbox when you create a new world is any better than a research item deep down in the tech tree.

Re: IV, please tell janitors they are staff too!(Laundry iss

Is there any design reason why we can't let Janitors be more self sufficent? Cooks can take care of food on their own despite prison labour being an option, why not do the same for laundry?

Re: IV, please tell janitors they are staff too!(Laundry iss

Like I said, the janitors will only assist, they won't create any jobs. Jobs will only be created if a laundry can reach a cellblock, if the laundry can't deliver somewhere because there is a staff only area in it's way it will simply not generate the job and the janitors won't deliver any uniforms...

Re: IV, please tell janitors they are staff too!(Laundry iss

What you want is for the janitors to do the laundry for you but they can't. Not the case, my prison was originally using one main laundry with max sec prisoners doing the actual cleaning. I was only relying on janitors to deliver the uniforms to my other security levels, but they do not. They also ...

IV, please tell janitors they are staff too!(Laundry issues)

Ever since segregated prisons became more prominent in recent alphas, the issue of janitor AI has become a glaring one - they clean floors anywhere just fine, but when they try to handle laundry they will act like the prisoners that work in your main laundry room which vastly limits where they're ab...

Re: Is Alpha 14 coming today ?

So much for limiting the audience to get more understanding people and higher quality feedback. You're not even supposed to expect the game to WORK at this stage, let alone perfectly timed updates. If you don't want to participate in this environment just treat your purchase as a preorder and stay a...

Night time is when you build stuff, because during the day all of your workers are busy unloading sheet metal and moving it to the workshop, or your inamtes are in the way.

It's also a good time for a shakedown.

Yep, my spare guards used to love the holding cell and the delivery area. I actually like the idea of having *some* in Deliveries just in case someone tries to run for the street, but I built a security room and now my guys hang out there too.

I cant seem to find any patch notes for A13. I have searched the forums, been on the wiki page (no update) and so on.. Am I doing something while searching or am I just blind? If anyone knows where the patch note is, please let me know. I'd love to read it. I want to see ALL the changes in a list (...
