Re: Major lag with a massive prison

The ram is your bottleneck. I'm running basically the same setup, except I maxxed the motherboard out at 32 gigs of ram; I experience no such slowdowns and the prisons I typically design are in the 15-1800 range. i agree with this...lets face it your OS is using up to 2 gigs of ram itself....and le...

Re: [Suggestions] A few suggestions for improvements/changes

[*] Beds in holding cells - I added a few beds to the holding cells hoping that the prisoners would use them when they were in overflow, but they just stand around. Having them use the beds if in the holding cell would be good. This could link in with the cellmates aspect. I have beds in all my hol...

i'm gonna assume your save is from an older version of PA...try making a new one...simply changing the savefile might not be enough..

just a suggestion really not sure

Re: The distribution of Laundry Baskets

i think the current way is better but should be tweaked a lil bit...we need a way to pick up and drop and object...(maybe it would just move a "shadow version" of it and you have to wait for your staff to move it.. example if you clicked on a laundry cart and moved it somewhere else...it w...

Re: [SUGGESTION] Different ways of getting a prisoner to beh

Re: End of the month blues (A29)

Definitely optimization. Not much point in having new rooms and features, if the game becomes unplayable once you get to, say, 500 prisoners. yea right now its actually unplayable on my current rig...but i think its my fault...only running single channel memory atm (built a new rig..saved a few buc...

[Suggestion] Staff individualism

i know chris has stated in the past that he does not wish to add staff individualism to the game but after much consideration i believe its system that is very much needed in PA...right now a guard (or any staff member for that matter) is just a generic entity that greatly reduces the games potentia...

Re: jump to alert/events
