Dark areas of invisibility

Anybody else getting this one?

Power and lights and everything else is there, until I start setting up the laundry ... then I get these greyed out areas of invisibility. Snoring invisible prisoners, that suddenly appear when they leave the cell block.
A cleaning cupboard that I cannot assign anyone to as it's invisible.
Visitation ... watch the visitors go in and vanish!

All the grey bits are the same.

What is this cloud of invisibility??

'Fog of War' - you can only see areas where you've got guard patrols or CCTV :)

"Fog of War" was introduced in Alpha 3 (watch the release video here to learn how it works) and improved in Alpha 4 (video).

Thanks.

I took the X out of Fog of war ... I thought!

Okay, will go back and try again and make sure I do take the X out this time.

Unless it is no longer an option?

1x tiled hallways are too small if you try to get more than 20 prisoners =)

I had a 100 prisoner prison and always only 1x hallways.
Worked fine for me

So I started again ... and no dark areas ... definitely took the X out of Fog Of War.

BUT ... I don't seem able to assign my labour force to the Cleaning Cupboard now ... not sure why.

I've built it near the laundry, but it is a free-standing building.

It's too small. It doesn't show a minimum space requirement like most other rooms, but it's been established in this topic right after launch of Alpha 9 that this is a bug, the Cleaning Cupboard needs to be at least 5x5 tiles big.
