Re: [Suggestion] Starving while waiting for solitary

More guards and a good capacity of solitary cells will help mitigate the queue of prisoners needing some readjustment after a riot. As for the starving feature - I've used this to get rid of a particularly nasty 'legendary' inmate that had this habit of killing people once he got miffed that the toi...

Re: [suggestion] Legendary Prisoners and what to do next.

Interesting layout you have there, can you show us the whole prison, or post it? Also how does it work out having multiple canteens? Here's my prison so far: (Pictures are pretty large - to view, right click and select 'view image' in Firefox. Other browsers, who knows or cares what to do?! :D ) Ma...

Re: Mass escape attempt

I had 5 Max-Sec prisoners escape through a big network of escape tunnels that hooked up 8 or 9 cells.For some reason a few prisoners who had a tunnel entrance in their cell did not break out after the alarm was sounded and the tunnel system discovered. This tunnel did go under a perimeter wall as we...

Re: [suggestion] Legendary Prisoners and what to do next.

To handle Super-Max (and Protected Custody) inmates, I've made a little extra wing to house them. This is entirely separated from the rest of the prison by means of corridors that are staff only and some very solid solitary doors. In the Supermax part (16 cells) and the Canteen and Yard they share w...

Suggestion: Rap Sheet

Some of my inmates unfortunately seem to be very insistent upon doing wrong. Be it getting hold of weapons every other day or just have a connection to get drugs for some fun times. Either way, having a list of infractions an inmate have done whilst under the very considerate care of my prison would...

Re: Prisoners Not Being Sent to Solitary and Guards Not Doin

Some prisoners get stuck whilst cuffed, so the guards won't escort them to solitary or their cell. simple solution is to select the prisoner manually and then set a new destination nearby. A guard will then come and pick him up, move him the few meters and release. Soon after that, another guard com...

Re: Prisoner Uniforms stuck?

The Janitors get around to it eventually - if not very busy doing other stuff. So you'll need more than one of them for them to get on top of things. So scale number of Janitors with the size of your prison. One Janitor per 20-30 prisoners do nicely for me. Another issue with laundry is distribution...

Re: What's next BIG step for Alpha15?

I'd like to see separation of inmates according to class. So you'd be able to have different access to different areas according to prisoner status. To prevent Max security violent gangsters mixing with Minimum security pencil necked fraudsters. So separate canteens, yards and workplaces. Either tha...

Re: what happened with tunnel digging?

I don't know how much it the digging have been reduced. I got a prison running with roughly 130 inmates at the moment, and a pretty strict policy where any contraband found on an inmate triggers a cell search. I find one or two tunnels a day usually. You'd think a prisoner who is busy digging a tunn...

Got a medium size prison going (about 80 inmates so far), and it do start to lag after a good while. Everything struggles to keep pace. Be it scrolling the map, zooming and even the sounds start to chop. But resolved through setting game speed to slow or pause for a little while, even just hitting e...

Being born and bred and still residing in Norway - a cold and wet place except for two, possibly three hours on the 15th of July - I'd contend that the low crime rate isn't necessarily a function of our judicial system. Prisons included. And as far as prisons go, they are very tiered based upon what...

I don't know how much prisoners buying stuff would add to the game. The options are pretty limited. Most western prisons do grant inmates a certain allowance based upon their participation in various prison-run activities, but most of that is set aside for when they are released as I've understood i...

For what I saw, the ZX Spectrum is from 1982. There were at this time a lot of programming languages already, most of these having variables and functions :p Well, yes. But the choices was somewhat limited on the ZX Spectrum. You had the BASIC interpreter, and you could get an assembler compiler. A...
