Could also be used for paths. Like say you want you delivers to go around a build not though it. Or you want guards to bring inmates in though another door way. I like this idea too.

Nobody is talking about the important issue. What colour should the line be?

Orange. It is the new black, after all.

What would you do if the next Alpha introduced The Bridge of Death with matching Gorge of Eternal Peril? But I digress.

I've long wanted to see wayfinding lines in PA, I've brought 'Deployment Lines' out as a Mod which will allow you to achieve a painted line effect.

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/f ... =322850092

Unfortunately due to the limitations imposed by spare tile availability in the tileset.png, and a compatibility effort I'm driving forward with mods that myself and jordyarm are developing, this has only been achievable with white tile and concrete backgrounds so far. Hopefully IV with provide better support for materials soon so that I can expand on this mod with a range of other materials as backgrounds.

In the meantime hopefully some of you will find this useful, enjoy!

Cool! I take it they're just aesthetic, prisoners don't actually follow them do they?

Correct, just aesthetic.

That said, hypothetically even if they were functional... there'd be nothing to stop prisoners veering off track, etc.

Yes, I suppose. And I guess there's no way to make it so they work as deployment dividers?

Also, I quoted your mod in the first post for some extra visibility. :D

I believe that'd be one for the developers unfortunately.

+1, awesome.
