Re: What's your best prison reform grading?

Yes I find that reform is much harder. I have done my best to make sure that the prisoners are happy and not suppressed, but only a portion of them are interested in programs. Reform through working is also not as efficient use of their time, you only get 1 point every 10% of work time. Whereas ever...

Re: Foundation Education Program Problems

One more thing, is there any way to make prisoners do programs? I think you should be able to do that. I second this question. Is there a way to further encourage prisoners to take programs? I want to run a prison that helps them, but right now it is easier to suppress them to lower their reoffendi...

Re: Foundation Education Program Problems

Make sure that the work time is at least 3 hours.

If you have that, try changing to a different time, then click on that Reschedule All Programs button at the bottom of the page.

Bigger rooms = more effectiveness

Hey all,

This game reminds me of Theme Hospital, and one feature that Theme Hospital had was that bigger rooms made that room more effective, whether it be diagnostics or curing.

Would this feature be useful in this game? It would give people an incentive to have bigger rooms.

Re: Suppression is too powerful

Now that you mention it, I agree. Your suggestions seem sound, 1 armed guard should only suppress a certain amount of prisoners, suppression can only work so much and a very angry prisoner with a lot of unmet needs will still cause a riot. The effects of suppression could simply be lowered, as in it...

Re: Quick Questions

Q1. How is years served calculated in the prisoner's tab? I've tried investigating and 1 day in prison is about ~24 in-game hours. But 0.1 year served is about ~10 in-game hours. Q2. I have read horror stories of people who try to have 2 laundry rooms, 2 kitchens, 2 canteens, etc. But those posts ar...

Re: Quick Questions

1. Obviously you want to catch inmates with tools to prevent them from using it to escape. But what about contraband? What does it really do to the inmate? Will it make them more rebellious if you just let them keep whatever contraband they have? 2. Is there a better way to do laundry? Like should ...

Re: Quick Questions

Thanks for your reply.

1. When studying in a program, 2 factors determine the pass rate of the prisoner, concentration and understanding.

Concentration I know depends on whether his needs are satisfied, but what about understanding? Can you increase it somehow?

Quick Questions

Hey all, I just bought the game during the Steam Sale and I like this game, it reminds me of Theme Hospital. I have a few questions: 1. Is there a more elegant way of removing the yard or forestry? Because they are outdoors, I cannot bulldoze them. Currently I lay a foundation over them, and then bu...
