Oh no, the prisoners will definitely walk up to it to take it. If a metal detector pings a prisoner who just got taken in, a guard will often search them right in their cell. They'll then go straight into lockdown, shutting their door. Prisoners will crowd outside their cell's jail door to get at th...

[Suggestion] Guards dump contraband right after searching

This one should hopefully be a really simple procedure to add: simply make it so that after a guard finds contraband on a prisoner, the very next thing they do should be to dump that equipment rather than leaving it right there for other prisoners to take. Often my guard will run off to parts unknow...

Thank you Pogo. I was curious, but it'll be a bit before I load the game up.

Replies: 7

While it may seem unnecessary for a prisoner to try escaping when he's got 1 month left on an 84 month sentence (7 years), but... realistically, there's a lot going on in a prisoner's life that you can't always see from inside the walls. Maybe the prisoner has a parent, spouse, or child who is on t...

I'd be happier if it tracked uses in a 24-hour period (either a rolling twenty-four hours, or on that calendar day if it's easier to program or generates significantly less lag) either instead of or in addition to the total uses. I don't place everything at once, so a total uses is completely unhelp...

You can also add on to an existing building by making the new foundation overlap with the outer wall of the building you want to add to. Doing this will demolish the old wall. Question: If you don't include the starting building's outer wall, will the new foundation be a separate building with its w...

Re: Suggestions <3

B: This would allow a lot more to be done with the Planning tool. Maybe add a "Draw up Proposal" in Bureaucracy that would allow you to draw out a whole Cell Block, or Infirmary or any other such part of the prison. As a proposal, it would allow you not just to plan the walls but any staf...

If they have to go, they won't necessarily wait to use a toilet. I'm pretty sure I've seen them relieving themselves during shower time specifically, which is one of the reasons why my "showers" have public toilet sections inside them as well. I gotta be honest, I really don't want the AI ...

That would explain why I have trouble re-routing... I'll delete then lay down the new stuff, but if they still don't want to do everything in the queue then that would make it look like other squares are affected too.

Thank you. I'll keep that in mind.

Very entertaining (and disastrous) stream. :twisted:

Make sure to give enough advance notice if you stream again tomorrow, and I'll bark more advice at you. (No points for guessing which one I was.)

[Bug] Electric cable won't go from queue to in progress

This bug happens to me just often enough that I'm certain it's not an isolated incident, but not often enough that I can see a pattern to it. Has this ever happened to anyone? You order some cable to be placed in a spot the workmen should have access to, and it queues up properly, but then the workm...

Yeah, the corralling them all into one place was all I could think of, and even that has a second edge: you can keep better watch over them, and your guards are closer if there's a fight, but doesn't proximity make a fight more likely? Everybody knows about the Morning Shower Brawl, after all. The c...

The community on the Prison Architect boards on Steam does seem to be a lot better than this one. Everyone here seems to be a grognard who resents the influx of new blood, and they're not very good at hiding it.

I don't understand. If this forum isn't for talking about gameplay, then what is it for?
