Finding out the escape points

Is it possible to find out where prisoners are escaping from?

Re: Cooks that won't cook!

So I have cooks, the space, but now it's getting violent as no-one is getting fed. The cooks stop cooking, even though I have the allocation in the day for food.

Is it due to my negative cash flow?

Published my first prison, What would you do differently?

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=337973943 So I have my first working prison where riots and escapes are more common than they should be. I would love to get peoples feedback on it and what you might have done differently/better/worse. I took advice from here and the reddit comm...

So many problems (not bugs)

So I had not played the game since I bought it as it just kept over heating the computer. Each new Alpha release I give it a new go, and this time it runs and my PC stays nice and cool. Good work!! So I start playing and realise how bad I am at the game! :D I made my first prison like the Warden not...

Re: Mac overheating issue (Steam version)

Wow! Those are extreme temps. You've met the Tj max on one of the cores. I'm not sure if I missed it, but are you running the game with a GPU or Integrated Graphics? If Integrated, that might be the issue. I am very unsure. Also, have you tried changing the game's process priority from normal to be...

Re: Mac overheating issue (Steam version)

Again, I am fairly sure that the issue is the amount of processor time that the game is taking. Prison Architect uses the computer differently than most other games that I have played, in that the CPU (rather than the GPU) is the major bottleneck. Prison Architect is almost always computing paths, ...

Re: Remove "Tech Tree"

I have to say I like the tech tree idea and can see it being a great tool. It adds depth to the game for why you do something. I do think that it needs improvement and my suggestions would be Janitor - First one is free. However if you want to have a staff of them you need to research foreman > Jani...

Re: Mac overheating issue (Steam version)

Adding to this thread rather than starting a new one as requested. While I don't use a Mac, I am having the same issue with Alpha 20. I am on an HP Elitebook 8460p Model: Mobile Intel Core i5 2540M (Sandy Bridge) @ 2.6GHz Platform: rPGA 988B (Socket G2) 8gb RAM When I run PA, the fan goes crazy and ...

Re: Whole System Crashes.

When I run Alpha 20, it sends my CPU from 58 degrees to 99, and earlier on it just shut down due to overheating.

That's crazy!

Hope they can sort this out as they develop more, because I am addicted to the game!
