My prisoners don't leave their cells/holding cell

Postby Dominikdak » Sun Mar 31, 2013 9:33 pm

Hello guys,

I currently have a functional prison running and I think I did everything right. Problem is, my prisoners never leave their cells and the guards just stand around somewhere. The prisoners are rioting and soon my prison will burn down to ashes :S
But the canteen or the yard are located accessible near them?!
I've redone the prison but same problem.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Your prison is in Lockdown. Look under the clock it says "Lockdown" this means they're not allowed to leave their cells.


Look on the bottom of the screens. Chances are there will be a thing that says "Bang up" flashing. Click that and Lockdown should be ended.

Next time when exiting the Bureacracy screen use the ESC key instead of clicking the close button

The problem with the guards just standing around can be solved by researching Deployment through Bureaucracy, Deployment lets you assign your guards to a specific room and you can also draw patrol routes for them (although having multiple patrol routes in a single room will not yet work as they should, guards will randomly change the paths and you often end up with three guards walking the same path while the others are unguarded :P).

As they said, if it is the exact same problem then your prison is in lockdown.

As I mentioned I have checked, and both settings are firmly off, and the doors open for feeding time, shower time, oh and recreation time, just the prisoners will not leave, I have made a bug report.

Thank you though for pointing out the above again, but no I do not have the exact same issue. :roll:

As I also mentioned I know it is Alpha, well rolling Beta, well in development, thought I would post here, then create a bug report.

You said "Problem as above, in subject heading" - Meaning the same. "as above".

Anyway, sure. Someone else can take this.
