Open mulitple doors at once

Postby philmo » Thu May 21, 2015 4:05 pm

Is there a way the player can open multiple doors at once - or for example set x amount of doors per zone as open.

I know about remote doors and multiple doors that will open automatically based on prisoner/staff movements - but I want
to be able to say open all doors at the click of a button in a certain zone.

Thanks

the only thing i could think of:

have doors with door servos
connect a door timer to those servos
set the timer to open for all hours
put a power switch before the door timer

now when you activate the switch, doors will open
when you deactivate said switch doors will close just like normal doors

sounds like a plan, thanks.

I've done something similar:

Power switch --> Status light --> Lots of door servos.

Flicking the power switch turns door servos on/off. You can connect as many doors as you like to the status light.

I needed the status light as for some reason, directly connecting the switch to the servos didn't work properly; IIRC I was able to open the doors but not close them.
