my cooks either need to be fired, or promoted.

so my prison which has cells for over 400 inmates has 1 kitchen and 6 canteens due to segregation. now normally this is no problem. everyone gets fed that needs it and my trays all get washed. BUT my prison seems to LOVE to order new food trays by the STACKS. not only this but when the prison orders...

[question] concerning guards delivering meals

if i have super max and protective custody prisoners, but they don't have a free route to a canteen, will guards still deliver meals to them when they get to "starving" or will they still starve to death? will i have to put them in permanent lock down for guards to deliver meals to them? d...

Re: Simple bridge [suggestion]

use logic gates and 4 gates on your road and you can make a "walkway"

when north gate is open 2 center gates are closed

when south gate is open 2 center gates are closed.

additionally gates going to center path and the north and south gate are closed if center gates are open.

Re: [EXPLOIT] Risk category trick

here is something to consider as a FIX to the cheat. scrap the current system. as i dont see it working with current mechanics. instead, have the "state" pay you a flat rate for each prisoner based on what the "state" thinks that prisoner is worth, then you can switch them all da...

staff/emergency services, backwards

so currently in game we have "armed guards" as normal units, but we can call in non armed "riot police" it seems to me that it would make much more sense to be able to hire "riot police AKA riot guards" to have a riot unit in your pirson that works just as the riot poli...

Re: Metal detector triggering search on obvious items?

i think the item being called a metal detector is a little misleading for prison architect.. and that is where some confusion is coming into play here. the metal detector in the game works more like a metal detector that you place an item through on a conveyor belt and an x-ray machine displays a pi...
