Here's the beginning of mine , meeting basic functional requirements on day one. Here's my first expansion for approx 80 prisoners . Got a boon in the form of 31 prisoners on day two and ~20+ on day three! Switched to min+max as well since I was losing ~1k every day from releases. The first fight b...

I think prisoners should require further processing than "Arrive" and "Be put in Cell/Holding Cell", but manual processing is too much work for too little gain. It'd be awesome if we could designate certain cell blocks as for certain types of prisoners though. Maybe as a right-cl...

I like the idea of different employees affecting FoW differently.

Guards are the best of course, the chief among them, second best is all of your other administrators. Third best are nurses and chefs, while fourth, not really giving a fuck, are janitors and groundskeepers.

Ok vertical pipes - I'll take that as a solution for now. (just a small matter of programming) :wink: I'll have to go back to the biggest problem though: not being able to see what's happening on all the floors at once. Would that not annoy the shit out of you? You need to play Dwarf Fortress. Key-...

I think, instead of appearing out of nowhere, they should come in on a truck exactly like your workers at the start of the game do. ASAP but not instantaneous.

WASD is so much better for map navigation, finally the other RTSes and top-down games in general are starting to catch up with Total War.

I believe it only governs the schedule that prisoners follow, allowing them to say, cross your large courtyard and then showering instead of crossing your large courtyard then going back because the 30 minutes allocated to showering has already passed.

+1 to Foundation tool being just the foundations, and a Quick Building tool taking the current Foundations + Walls + Lights role.

You should play around with solitary rooms, I have a game where I had 16 prisoners awaiting solitary but no money to expand much, So I re purposed some cells to become either solitary rooms with a jail door or solitary rooms with a solitary door. The door does not matter, in fact I don't even think...

Only use demolition on entire buildings you want to get rid of or entire areas you want to excise from the floor plan, if you want to modify within the space build with walls and floors. Workers replace walls with floors and floors with walls where necessary.

How do you profit from healing people? You don't - if anything it is an expense. The only way you make money while running your prison is the daily payout for every prisoner in your prison as well as the passive income from the workshops. Wait do workshops generate income now?

Are you sure those aren't prisoners that carried them from the outside or picked them up after gaurds took too long in trashing them?

I'd assume the pills and injections are from the medical ward/doctors. Also it seems that prisoners come on-site carrying things as well. Earlier I saw someone pull something out, didn't notice what it really was but knew it was contraband, ordered him searched, and it was a gun ! I've never had rio...
