Ric, Aesthetically, one staff door looks much prettier, as the two doors tend to get in each other's way. But I was thinking more of traffic volume, allowing more pedestrians to pass through a single point quicker, and hence the guard can re-secure it, and return to his other duties (or unlock other...

Thank you, sir. I HOPE you have saved my sanity (there wasn't much hope for that really) but I was going NUTS with that siren. I work as a security guard in a control room, and all manner of alarms go off at all hours of the night, and I am pretty good at being able to concentrate whilst hell is bre...

I CAN'T "go back" to Alpha 7 of 8, as I purchased an Alpha 10 only two days ago. http://prison-architect.com/builds.html Thanks for that Madman. Perhaps I should have said "I don't WANT to go back". I assume that the changes/bug fixes/ improvements/deletions etc between Alpha mo...

Is the audible alarm a Bang-up Alarm?

I had a serious power overload and needed to completely build my utilities (power and water). Whilst I was asking the workers to complete various tasks, I clicked on Bureaucracy to see how my research was progressing and what I needed to do next. If you're not careful and click the extreme right han...

Yes, I know how to use deployment to designate a staff only area, but I have seen staff only doors in YouTube vids. I am just watching one now where the "prison architect" describes them, and he is using Alpha 7 (possibly an older YouTube vid). Did the development from there to Alpha 10 (...

Staff-Only mode for doors

I have seen "Staff-Only" doors in a couple of YouTube vids, but can't find how to "program" or designate them as "Staff-only" entry. I can select a "staff door" from the objects (which are fine for the Offices), but I want to make a "large Jail door"...

Thanks for all your help. I think I was trying to build doors and walls outside the confines of the foundation slab. I got my act together and everything is fine now.

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...

Yes, I put a door on the edge of the foundation and it still is having trouble. Perhaps the TIMING of placing this door is the problem. Should I wait until a section of wall is built, then place the door on an already constructed wall, or to click and drag my foundation slab, then place a door on on...

This might be what I am having trouble with as well...sounds similar to my problem (see my thread on Holding Cell). I am not saving during building, perhaps it auto-saved during construction, and the workers forgot to complete it after the auto-save. Do you think if I cancelled construction of the f...

What am I doing wrong with my Holding Cell?

Hi. Just got this sim last night after checking out YouTube vids and builds. I have checked out a few guides posted here and on Steam by VERY helpful players and devs (thanks guys!), but I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. I start a new prison, and build a 10x10 building foundation, which I int...
