In other words, if the lines from two different generators meet, both of them will shut down.

Re: Kerbal

Kerbal Architect? Prison Space Program? If you didn't already know, Kerbal Space Program also came out of Early Access this year. Whether there is a kerbal prisoner at all, I don't know. If there were, though, I'd look out.

Re: death row help

Do you have a prisoner in already? They are rare and it may be days between one prisoner becoming available.

Re: Any Way to get Around Cell Grading?

That said, you might want to make a few top quality cells and balance them out with tiny cells. You will need a lot, though.

Re: Prison Architect Mega-Guide [V.1.0]

There are a few issues with this guide: Lockdown (punishment) is not to be confused with lockup (regime). The former suppresses the inmate whereas the latter doesn't. Also, you forgot to mention that fearless inmates don't get suppressed by armed guards. Additionally, death row inmates are treated a...

Re: Protective Custody

They won't kill each other. I have a self-contained block for them, but I haven't completely segregated it. Ex-cops and snitches also will be useless informants; don't bother recruiting them.

And a button to skip punishments with out using / losing rep. This is first and foremost a game and it's no fun waiting 8 hours in solitory being able to do nothing. Even on the fastest speed it takes far too long before you are released and can play again. Really? One point is nothing to pay to sk...

Re: Moving inmates??

No. The closest you get is when you walk to a locked door to an area off-limits to you in escape mode; the permissions for whether or not you're allowed in there don't get checked. This can lead to an easy ticket to the outside. From what I briefly experienced, permissions do get checked. However, ...

Re: Best digging tool?

A shovel from the forestry, if you can sneak it there or outpace the guards investigating why you set off the metal detector and stash it. The pickaxe is undetectable, so it is a great choice.

Re: Gun!

How do you start a fire as a prisoner? There was a time I got two members of my squad axes from the forestry area. I managed to kill an ex-cop and a worker with it before getting tased. The rest were being rehabilitated as per usual :wink: .

If you go into an area off-limits to you, you get treated as if you're escaping.

I focused on putting the riot down and the burning building got destroyed. I simply built over the burnt walls. I also managed to lose all my armed guards.

Re: Prisoner Escape

Don't forget that armed guards can suppress people who don't have the fearless trait. I've found them quite useful; when inmates don't have reform programs, it can be useful if they're on the verge of kick-off. It still is useful if they do have a program, but it makes them less likely to pass.
