Hmmm.... Just a thought. What happens if you make a delivery area in the middle of the prison. Say a 10x10 area with a 1 or 2 tile wide path also marked as delivery reaching out to the road? Q1: Would the workmen unload cargo all the way into the center area or just clog up the narrow pathway with d...

Some people are annoyed by them. I try to pretend steam achievements do not exist. I play any given game because I'm interested in it for some reason. Little popups giving me pats on the head are quite annoying and often somewhat condescending... EG: "Look! You have built 100 widgets in your fa...

how many prisoners do you have? Just wondering if it's a critical mass thing. Get enough grumpy ones together and the fur flies. ---- I am guessing the issue on load is that all prisoners "moods" are based on a calculation of their current needs at the moment of game load. There is obvious...

For some games steam seems to simply ignore that setting... I must have set it 30+ times for Skyrim as most every update broke one or more mods... Every time I set it, it would look like it was holding till I came back and logged in the next day. Then when I checked it would be back on auto update....

They could revive IF the Dr got to them within a certain amount of time from time of "death". Otherwise they stay dead (or become zombies / organ doners... ;) ).

Hmm... Prisoners get crutches/wheelchairs when injured? Source of new weapons. ;)

<... snip ...> dc4bs, that sounds like a really good system for controlling your entrance/exit/delivery area with separate canteen and workshop entrances, allowing for the main users of the delivery area to enter and exit quickly. Is there any chance you could post a screenshot detailing the entry ...

Well, 2 global actions and 1 per-item action. global: Hold ALL repairs. global: Continue ALL repairs. per-item: Repair this item. Could be VERY helpful post-riot when cash is low to prevent the workers from immediately using up what little cash you have auto-fixing benches and tables when the money ...

I think a more general "medicines" category would be better than something as specific as blood, but I do like the idea. I also think, once prisoners are more fleshed out, that some prisoners have preexisting medical conditions that require some bit of medication daily. That's actually qu...

Never save / load in the middle of sleep period! This almost always causes a riot. On reload, the prisoners will NOT go back to sleep and they are GRUMPY about it. I was able to "fix" a 2 AM game time load once (didn't want to lose an entire day back to previous save) by immediately pausin...

I dumped a few saws and presses too before I figured it out. Make sure there is a valid "gen pop" accessible route available from the workshop all the way to inside the storage room. The next "work" period, the prisoner assigned will move the box to storage for you. They will NOT...

Work around is edit the save to add more incoming prisoners each day. I have to restart PA on average about once each game day. It will play smoothly for a while no matter how many prisoners/objects there are but usually towards the middle to end of the "work" time when loads of new licens...

It looks like the 4 detectors on the South side of that picture should be rotated 180... It looks like prisoners can squeak by the sides the way they are placed now.

NOTE: The prisoners will only move the box to storage during a work shift. They will not move them during any other regime.

I'd be suprised if, eventually, the cell and solitary room requirement will expand to include, "must be surrounded by walls and door(s)." I don't see the finished game allowing multiple cells in a cell block with no walls between them. That's why I build all cells for individuals. But I d...
