Prisoners don't leave when released

Postby Kartoffels » Sat Dec 28, 2013 5:44 pm

I've built my first prison and the first prisoners are being released, but they don't leave their cells. Even if I open or remove the doors for them and even remove the front gate, they still continue walking around in their cells. They don't do out to eat anymore either. I've removed all the guards too to see if that helped but it didn't have any effect. Does somebody know a solution?

They could be awaiting punishment, for example, to serve some time in Solitary. :)

I have only had this happen when my guards forget to release them from lock down. I can circumvent by simply clicking on the release prisoner and moving him somewhere, typically a cell or solitary. A cop will come and move the prisoner and then the program will check him again and realize he's supposed to be release and he leaves. The good thing about this bug is it's very infrequent and recoverable.

I have had the same problem until I build a lot of Solitaries, after they serve their time there, they will be released. :)

I have had a number of issues with prisoners not being released correctly. They are 9 times out of 10 stuck. After making sure they don't have a punishment to serve, select the prisoner, and move him to another cell or within his cell. A guard will come to collect him. After being released by the guard he will leave your prison.

As far as the hospital bed issue with evacuating dead characters, it usually seems to be guards that are placed there and not moved to the hearse. Select the dead character and give them an order to move somewhere else. Hover over them for a moment, and it will say "Move Guard to Hearse" after the pathing figures out who is going to do it.
