[Bug: Win7 32bit] Overloaded Kitchen [Solved]

Postby Springare » Thu Sep 27, 2012 6:31 pm

I got a real problem with the food, because my cooks don't make the amount they could. Searched the forum, but nothing came up.

Steps to reproduce:
Don't really now, but look at the notes, there is my kitchen with the actual problem.

Expected:
The cooks should use the ingrediens that are already in the kitchen and make a big stack of food.

Result:
The cooks bringing more stuff into the kitchen instead of using what is already there and waste a lot of time running.

Try making more fridges?

I could do that, but that doesn't solve the problem that they bring to much food. In the fridge at the top left corner is a good amount of raw material and i think they should use that up first.

I'm thinking the amount of ingredients they bring is releated to the amount of prisoners you have. That's what I'm noticing at the moment.

That sounds like a good explanation. I think that kitchen is far too small for the amount of prisoners it has to feed. I will keep an eye on the food-prisoner-ratio from now on.

The game orders materials based on needs. You'll notice that as soon as you designate rooms as cells, beds and toilets will start rolling in even if you didn't actually 'buy' them. That's actually quite an interesting part of management: the delivery area can get cluttered very quickly if you decide to buy huge numbers of items in one go, blocking the main processes.

My rule is: keep adding refrigerators until one is empty.

It also *really* helps kitchen efficiency if you put the Storage room right outside the kitchen door.

Ok, new prison, new layout.

I work with 8 fridges and 4 cookers at the moment and everything is fine. So no bug, just a little misunderstanding on the needed amount of fridges.

The admin in me feels compelled to say this: props for changing the topic subject. :)
