Re: Have a glitch I can't fix Broken laundry in death row

its those diagonal lines ....

Did you pause the game so the info didnt get updated? might take 10-20 seconds, depending your prison size.
reloading the game helps as well, although just unpausing and waiting the few secs is easier.

Re: tell how i did design this prison

I'll be honost, even if it only shows my own stupidity ... 1) your cells are packed with items, which increases the shakedown duration by alot. 2) classrooms are 20 schooldesks max for foundation and 10 schooldesks max for general education 3) Chapel need only 20 prayer spots max 4) a table with 2 b...

Re: Prisoner decisions and path finding

Freetime doesnt mean go to common room. Prisoners will just go where top needs can be reduced. This might be shower if they feel dirty, cell if they prefer privacy, library if they want literacy etc. Or just a strawl, if there is no "need" priority. As for pathing, you could test and prove...

Re: Prisoner decisions and path finding

Room and Halls you do not want prisoners to walk, you should mark as "staff only". Same goes if you turn your prison into two sections, you can make a connecting hall "staff only" so they don't roam to each others wing. Guard will escort prisoners through staff only halls towards...

Re: Suggestion - Improvements Airlock, Routes, Zones, Doorti

Forget about keeping doors closed with anything... Guards will sell their own mom, if it allows them to rush off to open a door. Someone told me the AI resets pathing after 30 sec or so .... or 15 game minutes. Any guard within 75 tiles will have time enough to open that door. being generous on how ...

Re: "Safety" question...

volatiles aren't that bad. the 200+ prison i got now is quite peaceful and all mixed. Only 3 I placed supermax ... but than you need to eye their needs more carefully. doing the Grant about nutrition with this mix is quite explosive if you do the 2 days of 1 low value low quantity meal. By the end o...

Re: Dont want to sell wood manually

you need forestry for the wood to make beds, costs 100 per tree planted ... so 700 profit from forestry.

Forestry means trees will be replanted automatically
Planting "Normal" trees yourself will stay until you select them to be removed ... its manualy.

Re: "Safety" question...

easy way to avoid violance would be to place these groups separate: - all the "volatile" prisoners (can set to supermax if you only take max sec prisoners) (I just give them a chance first though, check their mood for this) - all the instigators (can set to minimum if you only take max sec...

Re: Yard Congestion

Within prisons its normal to see at least - pavement ... for fast walking - place benches + tables & pews ... to sit - excercise equipment - a toilet works for a 200+ prison all going to the Yard at the same time. It still takes a bit for prisoners to disperse, but they'll end up far away from t...

[request] Program Schedule editing change

Hi, Once you start having a bigger prison, you'll also have more training programs in several rooms. The current Program Schedule Editer is quite annoying to handle larger prisons with their numerous programs. I could give a suggestion or 2: - easy: resize schedule editer to fit window - less easy: ...

Re: Riots after shower time

If you rush prisoners off to shower and than straight off to eat, then they tend to have skipped the toilet, dirtying themselfs, making the whole shower issue ... pointless. If you give prisoners lockup time before shower, than they keep on sleeping till shower time, with the same issue as above. so...
