Re: Wiki verification [was: Random event "Water Pipe Bust"]

Thanks for the answers so far. Let's extend this thread to verify more of the wiki's open topics, i.e. information marked with Verification Needed or similar. 1. Small Pipes: May the Water Pipe Burst event also burst small pipes? Did anyone ever experience this? 2. Phone Tap + Confidential Informant...

Re: riot issue

But the Clothing need is supposed to not make the prisoners angry if not met. They just shouldn't feel well-treated if they have to wear dirty clothes, but not start a riot. (At least that's what the Alpha 11 changelog and video and the wiki say, and I think it's also in needs.txt, though that one c...

Re: Random event "Water Pipe Bust" in the game?

Thanks for your reply, I've removed the "Verification needed" tag in the wiki. However my question should have been longer: Does it only affect large pipes (as shown in the video), or may small pipes bust as well? And as I'm asking anyway: The Subsidence event, does it affect all kinds of ...

Wiki verification [was: Random event "Water Pipe Bust"]

The "Water Pipe Bust" random event was shown in the Alpha 36 video, but is not in the changelog . Has it been removed from the game (e.g. because water floods hardly have an effect anyway), or just forgotten in the changelog? Did someone face it in the game already? (I'm asking because I w...

Re: CARS! Caught this in an alpha video

The cars in the spritebank are not facing downwards as the vehicles used in the game are, which indicates that they were never intended to use the road, which is the only sane path for vehicles in the game. Plus, they appear in that video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JdVne6D6nqk which is said to...

Re: CARS! Caught this in an alpha video

They're most likely for the cutscenes of the campaigns, which will most likely be amongst the unannounced features to be announced in September, as also hinted by the Alpha videos, which occasionally show the Main Menu, where according entries exist.

Re: Problem with checking escapes in gang cells

Not really a solution for your current problem, but: You wouldn't have to have to dismantle the toilet in the first place. Searching the toilet directly now will reveal tunnels for sure (not if toilet is searched as a part of a "Search Cell" or "Search Cell Block" action.

Is there such thing as a staff key?

Despite staff tooltips say "Carrying Staff Key", there is no object like "staff key" listed in the game's material.txt, and it's not described in the wiki, too (both other than the jail key ). However, the existence of a staff key would mean the only effective difference between ...

Re: Do different jobs have different pay (incentive)?

No, according to the Alpha 34 changelog and video, they are all paid $0.50 per hour. Maybe this is a bit strange considering for example that it takes two qualification courses to do carpentry and none to do cleaning.

Hmm, sounds reasonable. I added this as a tip to the wiki now, so that people get the idea.

Re: [Suggestion] Remove Forestry

You sure do make money with it. But what exactly does it have to do with a prison? You buy trees, your staff grows and chops trees and carries it to the exports zone. No prisoners involved. Could be any other business.

Re: What features could be removed?

Back in the day the Morgue was a 'must' and also a punishment, as it would slowly fill up with dead prisoners and staff. If you sucked, and back then riots did happen a lot more, you would find yourself building expansions to the morgue. At this point I would say 'cut it, or make it useful'. [...] ...

Re: [EXPLOIT] Risk category trick

I like the board idea. EDIT: Or, working on kalkkuna's input that money should be allowed by others after the rating was changed - a state's prison inspector could do his own rating every couple of days, possibly warning me that my ratings are too high and finally punishing me with a fine for unjust...
