[Suggestion] Dormitories

Postby Lorenzo666 » Fri Oct 19, 2012 4:49 pm

So, from what I know, in Prisons for adolescents and low security prisons, the Prisoners don't have individual cells, instead they bunk in Dormitories.

This could be a replacement or version of the Holding Cell to allow better use of space for housing low security prisoners.

So the space would have to be a minimum of perhaps, 6x6 and have 4 beds and a locker each (A locker could be perhaps 1x1 for a Standing locker and 2x1 for a Foot locker?). So each prisoner has their own personal bed and locker. It could also function as a sort of Common room, with maybe a TV and chairs in one corner.

A dormitory should be able to house the same numbers of prisoners as Beds and Lockers, so if you really wanted, you could have a large 20x15 building to house a large number of Prisoners, but those who are medium/high or Death Row classification would not be suited to this as they would regularly cause fights and vandalize the lockers of others.

sounds like an idea, even if they just added bunk beds, then you could have 2 to a cell.

+1 to the double bunk idea, opens up the possibility of a night time shank if they managed to smuggle one out, raising the importance of nightly patrols.

I dreamed that there were bunk beds in this game... and then I spent like 10 minutes today looking for them in the objects menu.
