Overlapping guard routes

Postby Beerlover » Sat Jun 23, 2018 3:01 am

Hey!

Just wanted to say first that I love this game, and I think It's awesome.

I've been having trouble setting up specific overlapping guard routes with the current system.

Example: Say I want one guard to work from 2pm til 4pm in the canteen, and from 2pm til 6pm in the Yard. I havent found a good way to do this, but I might have overlooked something.

Hello,

Do you know about the "deployment scheduler" ?

Schedule

If Micromanagement is researched from the Bureaucracy tree, you can schedule the assignment of guards and patrols using the deployment scheduler at the bottom of the deployment screen. In addition to the standard deployment (white), you can configure up to 7 special deployments (1-7). Each hour can be assigned one of the configurations, by clicking on the rectangle below the hour (left - increase, right - decrease). The red arrow on the hour bar can be set to a specific hour to show and edit the associated configuration. The white arrow points at the current hour, the red arrow can be moved around to show the deployment at that time.

Maybe this helps too (first hit) >>>

Or just search for "Prison Architect Deployment Scheduler".

Thanks for the reply!

I am aware of this, but it still doesn't let you do overlapping guard deployments. Say I have a guard working from 1-4 in the yard, and want another guard to work from 2 - 5 in the shower, and yet another one to work from 3-6 in the canteen.

It doesn't work with the current system. As far as I can see the two second guards would automaticly be set to start at the same time as the first guard in the yard with the current system. They should add multiple lines in the scheduler.

It would look kind of like this:
-----1111
------2222
-------3333

If I've misunderstood something, please let me know.
