Dropping Prisoner Numbers

Hi all,

I managed to get my capacity and prisoner count to 70/70, I then expanded to around 100 cells but my prisoner number has dropped to 35...

What am I doing wrong?

Sometimes the Release of prisoners outweigh the Intake.

Bit of a pain but you can always edit the save file to get a bigger intake.

Thanks for the reply, it's a shame because it really feels like a step back now!

It probably needs some tuning... In my experimenting it looks like low-risk prisoners top out at about 50 total population, and even that takes a long time to achieve (>30 game days). So far it doesn't seem that medium risk go much higher either.

Maybe the intention is to favor smaller, 'boutique' prisons like the example prison they always use in their videos?
