Hardly, we just need a viable 24-hour Lecter lockdown.

Re: [Suggestion] Prisoner released event

Great idea, now that you mention it I'd love to see his buddies or family pick him up. Maybe they'd use the hearse lane in the road so it doesn't gum up delivery?

This way you can have several parole rooms active.


Thanks for the tip!

Re: [Suggestion] 24/7 patrols

I was honestly surprised to see this behavior still in A29. It seems as though the inmates can figure out when they need to leave the mess hall or work or wherever to make it to their next program, so the scheduling logic is already there.

Re: [BUG] [SUGGESTION] Alt-Tab Functionality

If PA is the only program running, you might just not have anywhere else to switch to. Try hitting the windows key (or ctrl+escape if you don't have one).

Really? My prisoners just seem to spazz about on the prayer rugs.


Are you at max speed? I noticed this behavior on some toons, and it goes away when I switch to 2x.

Re: [Suggestion]Parole Complications/ Suggestions of

I would favour (unlimited) assistants, otherwise at some point you're just going to run into the same problem again. I think the worst case for # of parole meetings per day would be the average intake rate times 2, assuming no prisoners are paroled and they each get 2 shots at parole. So like 25 (?...

Re: Suggestion for Parole Consequences

Other than seeing the word "Angry" listed as a status effect, I have not noticed any real change in prisoner behavior after a failed parole hearing, and 12 hours is so short that it hardly makes a difference. Though my main prison is rather peaceful generally, so that may be a special cas...

Re: Noticed an improvement that doesn't seem to be listed!

A few days ago I posted that I thought prisoners who didn't have work in work periods should default to going back to their cells rather than roaming around the prison as if they were on free time. With Alpha29 they appear to do just that! Nope, they still wander wherever they want. In mine they ro...

Re: Suggestion for Parole Consequences

Very good suggestions; maybe the stoical ones would be indifferent to parole?

"Angry" does appear to already be a status effect that a prisoner can get in A29; I assume it's from being denied parole.

Re: Parole Complications/ Suggestions of

I agree 100% with the parole comments. My current prison has over 400 prisoners, and with medium risk intake open the "due for parole" number loses ground every day.

A big part of the problem is prisoners coming in when they're already due for parole; now I think of it, that may be a bug.

Messed up how? It seems to work for me, in that it completes eventually. I admit I haven't watched closely to see exactly what it's doing though.
