Re: (Bug) concrete or brick foundations not completing

Why don't they change the warning message to the more blatantly obvious "Requires Door"? It isn't as simple as that. For 4 walls, super basic foundation, yeah, you need a door. You can then remove the door (after foundation finishes, I do not recall if it can be done before completion) an...

Re: Protective Custody

Last bit - if you do run PC (and Super Max) in total exclusion with Staff Only airlocks, they make some of the best CIs. They'll be escorted 100% of the travel to and from their area and security rooms and back (increasing survivability and longevity of the CIs) because they'll need escort across t...

Re: Protective Custody

My question is: Will these guys even attack each other because of what they are? Do I have to keep them segragated even from each other or can I flesh out their area with their own canteen, yard and so on without worrying about them killing each other when they are together? Short answer: Not usual...

Re: [Spoiler] Easter egg

Probably has to do with this and, to a lesser extent, this. Just a thought.

Re: Game forcefully restrains prisoners in unsecured cell bl

The game needs a good, solid, "First 48 Hours" tutorial. Real simple plot - empty land, make a basic prison. Very simple "build a thing here, build another thing there, take out these grants and fulfill them, oh look your prisoners are arriving soon and you still need a wall/fence&quo...

Re: PA V1: Errors, bugs and some suggestions

had a bug where no matter how many guards I ordered into the security room or assigned to it, they would not use the CCTV console to monitor the cameras. I also hooked up remote controlled doors and actually had a guard operating the remote door control, yet that guard never opened a remote door de...

Re: Escape mode needs help with crap prisons.

That, and those sadistic few that are purposefully constructing prisons for this mode. Just need to set up a few requirements for EM prisons and then be able to tag them in the workshop as "Suitable for Escape Mode" or similar. Game would then look for and load one from this group. The Czar

Re: your worst inmate

I had a legendary inmate just like yours. Must have done something right though because he was good as gold and got out on bail without ever having any misconducts (literally, none). He has been my only legendary and it was actually kind of underwhelming :D Sometimes they are demon spawn. Sometimes...

Re: Multiplayer mode - using escape and normal mode?

Look, I really dislike the idea of MP in PA. I really do. I also sincerely hope it never makes it in. However: Since Escape Mode is supposed to be a random prison from the workshop, why not MP as described? 1 warden vs 1 escapee. Random prison selected from workshop. Neither player knows who they wi...

Re: [SUGGESTION] Loads of stuff

Start here: viewtopic.php?f=43&t=21233

Almost all of your suggestions have been previously suggested. #15 seems new, but likely has been brought up in some form or other before.

Re: [Suggestion] Have prisoners help move exports!

My experience has been that they already work the Deliveries and Exports. They will pick up food (I want to also say sheet metal but I am not 100%, going from memory) and drop off workshop finished goods. Mind you, this only supplements the cooks/workmen and does not replace them (they're slower and...

Re: mini cheat engin. like in the videos.

I believe the general consensus since Alpha 2 or 3 or so has been "Yes, we the players want the cheat/dev tools, but please focus on new features and bug fixes first." It is even mentioned in the early alpha videos that there as a forum poll in regards to this. It has popped up from time t...

Re: [Suggestion] Hire more than 1 Foreman (like Psychologist

These are some of the reasons why there should only ever be one . Need more ? I digress. In prison architect, the administrators don't actually "administrate" the prison. They are prerequisites for facilities and research. In the case of the foreman and the chief, they teach necessary cla...

Re: Question - How to add gangs?

From IV: This is an optional feature, enabled by ticking the new "Gangs" tickbox in the New Map screen. (Nb. You can also hack gangs into an existing prison by adding 'EnabledGangs true' to the top of the .prison file) Its not very specific as to location of the entry, and I don't know how...

Re: [Suggestion] Hire more than 1 Foreman (like Psychologist

What are you doing so differently where two or more pawns teaching the class is so necessary for you? I am legitimately asking with hopes of a response - I really want to see why. Please note that I am not arguing against multiple entities doing the teaching, regardless if I feel I need them or not,...
