Re: Dormitory dosent work

Well, at 2x3, the dormitory will work, but will only allow 1 prisoner, as you were experiencing.

Re: Performance

I had a similar issue myself: http://forums.introversion.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=42&t=55874 I also did some research on the matter, it seems frequent that when you have a few hundreds prisoners, your CPU will get over-loaded, causing slowness and lags. I heard there would be performance improvemen...

Re: Lag spikes

Yeah, that's what I suspected too... And I didn't even fill 1/3 of what I had planned! Ho well, time to sell that 3 million prison and start a smaller, more manageable one.

Re: [Suggestion] Use for the morgue and lawsuits

Actually, the pay system was reworked in the Alpha. Now, you get an intake cash bonus depending on security level of the prisoners, and the daily income is fixed no matter the security level. Also, if a prisoner is caught committing a crime such as assault or murder, his security level does increase...

Re: keep guards OUT of an area?

Only way to do this is totally impractical. Basically, you'd need to put all your guards on patrols, CCTV, guarding rooms, etc. Problem with this is that only free guards will escort prisoners in their cells, so you couldn't have any intake. Also, even if you had guards available, they would still n...

Re: Any Way to get Around Cell Grading?

I am not sure I understand why you want to turn off cell grading, or maybe you don't fully understand how it works. So, say you build all your cells identical, using the lawyer to reduce the size to 3x1. This will make all your cells grade 0, so the average will be 0. This means that no prisoners wi...

Re: People who commit crimes are not 100% illiterate >:(

I think the reason that a course is required to work in the library is not that "they need to be able to read", it is more that they need to be able to understand the categorization used in a library, which is much more complicated than just placing any and all book on shelves using the al...

Re: [bug]Prison Manufacturing Facility Grant Broken?

Had a similar bug myself, any plate produced didn't count. I canceled the grant and re-took it, worked. Also, didn't have this bug since.

Re: Kitchen/Canteen 2 Questions?

For your first question, I have a lot less fridges than cookers, and on both low/low and high/high, I didn't seem to be missing food. As for your 2nd question, it depends on your setup. For instance, I have a single canteen that can be used by all my 500-600 low-sec prisoners, as it is located right...

Re: Dormitory dosent work

Also, make sure the dormitory meets the requirements. This is taken from the wiki at http://prison-architect.wikia.com/wiki/Dormitory Minimum size: 3x3 or 2x4. Having that mentioned, the dorm does not have a limited size per se. Rather it has a "square per prisoner" minimum. Meaning each p...

Re: Is there a way to let a ex`volatile Legend be released?

While it still involves killing them, there's always the 'Escape Cell'. Build a cell just on the edge of your prison with no wall blocking there way to freedom and use a standard door as the door, not jail door. Assign tons of armed guards near the cell and then have the troublesome prisoner moved ...

Lag spikes

Hi, I've been playing prison architect for a while now, since the first few early access versions on steam, but this has been my first attempt at making a really huge prison, and try to get the 1000 prisoners achievement. I currently have over 600 capacity, and when (if) completed, it should be abou...
