VoiD88, There may be a need for only one, but for the purposes of quickly being able to shut off power OR water to any one section AND keep the peace elsewhere, I chose to go the whole hog. I did not know only one was needed. I had a power overload once and built a second generator and tried to not ...

I am currently running FOUR power generators, all with the maximum number of capacitors. You must be careful not to "cross the wires". I have divided my prison into four quarters (a medium sized prison, and the quadrants are: Maximum security, minimum security, administration, and support)...

A big part of many Prisoner of war films is the scanning searchlight beam. I think prisoners darting between buildings and along corridors and waiting until the moment arises when the searchlight passes might be fun. Of course, if caught in the searchlight beam, they MUST throw their hands skyward a...

Great Magical Hat, I understand that I can't design for future alpha versions, I just try to remove all the possible weak points, and I see this as one. I could build a small two square room with a staff only door almost ANYWHERE in any prison, but I just am trying out new ideas to improve safety in...

Ric666, I like your layout and may also borrow some ideas from your build. It appears as if you have a small infirmary in each wing (or cell block) of your prison. It appears also as if they are staffed by a single doctor and two medical beds in each. Does this work? If, for instance, a prisoner is ...

HerrJoebob,

Thanks. If and when it is "fixed" in the future, I'll know where to go.

Power switches and water valves

Are the power switches and water valves operable by the prisoners? Can they be damaged by the prisoners? At the moment, I have two large cell blocks (60 cells in each plus six solitary) and have power switches and water valves outside the cell block, but if I cut power or water there, it is to the e...

Madman, It has a .jpg file extension in the URL but adds a ".Html?sort blah blah blah" extension after that. I'll try removing that and see what happens. Great Magical Hat, I'm unsure if it links to the image or the page. See above. The signature is not important, so I'll live with its abs...

Avatar and signature block

I can't seem to get my avatar or signature block working. Yes, I have ticked the "Include signature block in all replies". When I try to add an avatar, it tells me it doesn't recognise the URL of the avatar (it's in Photobucket). Is it because I downloaded the game through Steam and activa...

yussur, I believe the prisoner's individual needs are only contained in a "mouse-over menu" IF you have employed a psychologist/psychiatrist. Perhaps you designed a new prison and selected a prisoner, and this feature is not present because you have not yet employed a "shrink" in...

HerrJoebob,

Where is this option? As VoiD88 states, it doesn't work for them either. Perhaps I'm not looking in the right place (though I've done a fair bit of exploring as I only just bought this (YAY! not pirate!) (Alpha 10 version).

Is there a NEED to keep a room assignment?

It seems to me that the prison, once completely built, and rooms have been designated, patrols and deployment of workers etc, would look much better and easier on the eyes and easier to see what is going on without having the checkerboard pattern and room descriptions beneath them. Is it in developm...

Re: A.I improvement ideas.(And 1 building idea)

Welcome to the forum thekillergreece, My thoughts on your ideas. Firstly I think you might have gotten the word wrong when you said "prisoners should find a way to decapitate the guard and take his nightstick and weapon and start free other prisoners or attack guards, making a riot". Perha...

Power generator question

Hi guys, It seems to me that I can only route power from one end of the generator, and not to just run a cable from either end or from the middle. It also seems that it can't be rotated like most other objects to alleviate problems associated with (as I think) only getting power from one end. Am I d...
