Indeed, but there are two things to think about for a minute:

- Fences are indeed free, but that doesn't mean that in future updates, they will remain indestructible and/or free.

- All my example are thought through, so that when the Introversion adds new content, changes stuff, etcetera, you don't have to change your whole prison's outer walls (or in this case: fences), meaning that your prisoners will try to escape when you're changing the walls.

-----------------------

I will add a cheaper solution as proposed by Great Magical Hat soonish.
Also it's impossible to make the entrance"staff-only", until you've unlocked Deployment (what you don't have at the beginning).
So I'll have to think this one though.

Thanks for the feedback, btw :)


EDIT: Added more info.

I think this could be a stick if you reload the guide to this forums

I'm do not have enough time to update the guide on two places, if that's what you mean with "reloading"...

Wow man, this is awesome. I have been playing for a little bit here and there on this game, and your ideas are great. I can't wait to get home and try some of this!!! Thanks so much.

Could you add some how-tos on Laundry/ CCTV monitors? :)

As what some would say is an Steam impulse buyer, I had no idea what to do when starting. This guide was of great help, and I'll be putting some more of these practices into use when I get in tonight.

When I started playing, I didn't realise that the prisoners needed tables and benches to eat (Duh you're probably saying!). So hopefully an improved canteen will allow my high security prison to have happier prisoners (or so I hope, as I would rather not have any more riots!)

Regards,
Lucas,

Is there no mod/admin who can sticky this post?
It'll help a lot of new players :D

EDIT: Thanks!

*bump*

Don't want new players to miss out this helpful guide (and probably post their questions on the forum, what can also be answered by me most of the times) :D

RutgerM - nice guide. Noticed a few mistakes. Biggest one was your "Needs Tab" you all the way correct until "Hygiene" Need to add "Eat Schedule and "Yard Area" lol... If you look down your list you might fine a few more...

Since when is the Hygiene Need lowered by the Eat and Yard Schedule O_o?
I might be misunderstanding your comment, so please elaborate what you meant. Thanks you :)
