Drag the foundation slab, do not build any additional walls, place the door on the foundation slab, not next to it. It should automatically build with out a problem. Check out some youtube vids of people building foundations, it'll make sense then. :lol: Thanks Dosedmonkey. I HAVE checked out YouTu...

Bigger maps mean longer paths. I suspect calculating a longer path involves more cpu than a short one. This means performance will drop off more quickly on larger maps than smaller maps because occupants need to calculate longer paths. I suspect also that there is a per-square operation being perfo...

That and with online games some calculations can be (are) sluffed off to servers taking even more load off your CPU If you're referring to Simcity here, that proved to be a total lie, used to justify their always-online DRM. ;) Nah I'm talking about proper on-line games. The ones with less hackers ...

My guess is if you upgraded to 16GB of ram performance would increase. However, I have 16GB of ram and once I cross the ~90 prisoner threshold there is a noticeable decrease in performance. Mostly in the fact that it takes a while for some sprites to do what they intend to do, as an example 1 in ga...

It's an alpha (phase of major game development). As such, the game has yet to be optimised and will contain numerous bugs. Have you seen this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ujWthObALyg ? It has very large prison and a lot of prisoners but no sign of freezes or slow, but mine was about half th...

do you have a massive amount of workers (more than 4 or 5?) if so drop the worker numbers down to three or four and boost it back up after someone pushes the basket out of the laundry. There is a major collision issue when they gather in the center which causes all the prisoners not to do anything.

Problems I've had with CCTV 1: Guard not wanting to be in front of the monitor (fixed by setting a single patrol point) 2: Too many cameras alert when that is not the case (fixed by taking them all down and putting them back up) 3: CCTV cameras stopping their panning and staring at a small point on ...

In fact they set their price at a height they thought was a fair one for the full game (well, that bit is speculation by me, but the part after this isn't) because they thought it would mean more serious testers, as well as a more manageable number of them (allowing them to incorporate feedback bet...

But in the Beta or Final, the lag wont be there right?


One can only hope. However an ascii based game like dwarf fortress even gets bogged down due to the need to drive the AI.

Granted the game doesn't have the same scale of complexity but it is something to consider.

Re: actual purpose of riot guards unlocked through bureaucra

title says it all really, what is the purpose of the riot guards that the chief of security can research, as now that we have the ability to call in the riot police if there is a prison riot? I know that they still have [serves no purpose yet] in their description, but what else would they be able ...
