Re: [Bug] Room Dimensions

You can definitely make rooms that aren't "5x5" with some creative trickery though. I made a 100x4 holding cell, and to make it "5x5" I wound up punching 5 holes in the wall and making 5, one-square, alcoves in the holding cell. Need met. Same with my one laundry. 4x7 with a 3x1 ...

Re: Let's talk time!

My MAIN ISSUE is “Movement Speed”. That needs to be doubled or tripled . We can get that detail hammered out in Alpha / Beta testing. This can be done by slowing the “Clock Speed”… but that should also slow the Game Speed by which the Needs are increasing or decreasing(moving). If the "Clock S...

Re: Cooks that won't cook!

Wonderful. It works. Now how did the disconnect happen in the first place? I hadn't unlocked micromanagement so I did not disconnect them... methinks this could be a legitimate bug. I have a feature request in mantis ( http://bugs.introversion.co.uk/view.php?id=7387 ) to include an alert like the t...

Re: Infirmary Shenanigans [help?]

That's a pretty solid idea, Yorekani. Thanks. At the moment, I'm experimenting with a large "open" prison with no guards, because I'm a masochist apparently. But my next prison's going to be my first large "proper" prison and I was already thinking of putting my solitary cells so...

Re: Guards not working properly

I have 5 free guards. Manually controlling them sometimes works. I just have prisoners waiting to be moved to solitary just sit their for days before they finally move and new prisoners just milling around on the road. Could it be due to not having easy access routes or deployment issues because th...

Re: Deployment Wall Priority?

Yeah, that might be a good idea. I just got so spoiled with being able to unlock the laundry room door by marking it green. It meant my guards didn't have to get bugged and I could lock down easily if I needed to. I like the idea about the hallway though! Might be a good stopgap until I can figure ...

Re: Cooks that won't cook!

Do you have more than one kitchen? How many cooks/cookers/fridges/sinks/serving trays do you have? The save file is available at https://www.dropbox.com/s/t10qh3t1bo01qis/Broken%20Cooks.prison?dl=0 Ok got it working. In your case, you've triggered a 'disconnection' somehow. Unlock Micromanagement t...

Re: Deployment Wall Priority?

I'm not quite sure how to phrase this... For deployment purposes, it seems like the doors will belong either to the hallway area or the room area. I feel like in the past, I've always been able to automatically have the door assigned to the room, not the hall. Without that, I can't set the room to ...

Re: Guards not working properly

You can also (if you're extremely patient and a little OCD) manually click on a stationed guard, then right click on the prisoner to escort/door to open and he'll wander over and do it immediately and then go back to his station (or more often than not go on break and THEN go back to his station). N...

Re: Cooks that won't cook!

I unlocked logistics and attempted to connect the cell block to the kitchen. It didn't make the cooks cook. I already had individual cells. The cooks are still not cooking. Do you have more than one kitchen? How many cooks/cookers/fridges/sinks/serving trays do you have? Open the reports>jobs tab a...

Re: Cannot lay electrical cables consistently!

Thanks for the reply! It did that even across an open field that I was making my "Yard" but I'm gonna go ahead and try your recommendation out! There are some other wonky things with utilities that I haven't quite figured out yet. But I've had to re-route cables in a massive, empty, wareh...

Re: Prison labor not working? Help please?

how do i do that? Should be a button on your keyboard in the upper right. "prntscrn" or something like it. That makes a 'ctrl+c' copy of your screen. Open paint (or mac equivalent), hit ctrl+v, save. Upload. Post link. I've had this *exact* problem, and the solution was doors. Unintuitive...
