[Upcoming] Laundry

Postby Chad » Tue Nov 20, 2012 10:39 pm

In Alpha 3 and 4 the devs added some new sprites to the objects.png file:
Image
* washing machine
* laundry cart
* crumbled, folded and stacked prison uniforms

So we can wait for prison laudries in one of the future updates, where prisoners may work in.

Don't know if they laundries will be an option within workshops or an own room.

happy discussing :)

Yay! Someone else noticed :D

I'm really looking forward to these being implemented, although I wonder how it will work...

Haha i freaking love this :D they do know where they want to take the game.

I definitely support more rooms like this, so prisoners have stuff to do, and laundry is just perfect! :D cant wait.

Next we need a library room and a dude who uses a cart to go around the cells giving books to inmates :D

Seeing that picture, makes me thing, it would be kinda cool if not all prisoners had same yellow clothes. i mean there could be like a rating system if you will.

Less dangerous inmates have green clothes maybe, the average ones have yellow, the really dangerous ones have red. or something.

Great, I can't wait until my guards are battered to death with a washing machine.

And if the clothing gets washed wrong, everyone has to wear pink.

I don't like the idea. the prisoners shouldn't be categorized in that way. Think of that: some very heavy bad guys see there is a small weak green clothed prisoner. I can't imagine what they would do with him.

If you mean that different clothes should be there only for visuals (and not gameplay), I would disagree too, because it would be too colorful.

Some real prisons actually do this to identify gang members etc. I think it would be a great idea that differently classed prisoners could be assigned different colours.

Really?
Identifying "dangerous" or "less dangerous" prisoners is something different than identifying gang members. Anyway, the visual style shouldn't change that much, a small idicator in the mouse-over menu would be better (in my opinion).
But that should be discussed in an other thread ;)
