(suggestion) Prisoner time

Postby snapster1212 » Sun Dec 02, 2012 5:40 pm

You guys could add something where Prisoners serve a specific amount of time before being released, thsi way continous intake would not just keep piling up and actualy be playable.

I definitely think prisoners should leave after they've served their time, and from what I've read on the forum, everybody seems to agree with this. I think I've read somewhere that this is planned for the future developments, along with some sort of "rap sheet" with details of the crime committed, number of times stabbed, etc.

Can't wait for it :)

I'm curious how the devs would make that work... the way time works currently, there's hardly any way anybody would have the patience to run a prison long enough to get guys finishing sentences unless the sentences are like 3 weeks. :)

Well not to get morbid, but having proper times could work if you have a fair number of people you need to execute too. That way you're making room for new prisoners fairly quickly. :P

I'm a bad man. :P

Well the way that time works now is unrealistic anyways. No prison is built in only 24 hours, and a prisoner wouldn't be put into solitary for merely 45min. So a prisoner getting out in 3 days isn't unreasonable compared to everything else.

It is a game. Many games monkey with the reality of time to make a game playable. A one week sentence may be quite reasonable in the world of Prison Architect. After all, an entire building can go up in a couple of hours. ;)

Whos to say that 1 day in game cant represent months or even a YEAR of prisoner time.

Heck, for that matter, being able to empty the Morgue would be nice.
Or to be able to cremate them.

Seriously, my morgue is far too big. Mainly because I needed to free up cells.

Yes, We cant have a faster scale because the game is not going to be plaid for weeks on end, even with saving

Or tweed.

As for building times though, we all know if builders stopped taking all those tea breaks, lunch breaks, break breaks etc, construction would only take a few hours ;)

Don't think of it so much as slavery, but as running a tight ship. Besides, slavery would mean it was against their will. Presumably, they applied for the position and entered a mutually agreed-upon arrangement :P
