Building Rooms is broken

Postby Drossvirex » Thu Apr 03, 2014 11:23 pm

The core of this game is building. It should be easy like Sim City, but it's badly broken.

Building requires a complex set of rules apparently. It seems impossible to just build a foundation square, build walls inside it and designate rooms. For example, every time I try to build a cell it says the room isn't enclosed. If there is some certain way of doing it, it's not intuitive. It needs to be!

Even if I make a successful room, if I go to edit the walls, it ruins the whole prison by making this problem.

I've tried to build 5 prisons, all end up with this result and it seems the only way out is to start over.

For a room to be enclosed it needs to be surrounded by walls and/or doors. It's not as complicated as you make it out to be.

Try checking out a few let's plays to see where you're going wrong.

making the same thread in 2 forums wont help you quicker http://forums.introversion.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=43&t=47911

enclosed indeed means the space designated needs to be surrounded by walls and/or doors all the way around it

this is a good let's play to get some inspiration and knowledge about the gamehttp://forums.introversion.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=42&t=19178&start=210

Use this article on the developer wiki to learn how to use the foundations tool: http://devwiki.introversion.co.uk/pa/in ... Foundation

There are certain rules you need to stick to for successful building, there are a couple of glitches here and there still but it's not *that* hard. Hopefully you'll 'get it' after checking out the useful videos and links above. Once you get it you'll be fine :)
