Prisoners Not Being Sent to Solitary and Guards Not Doing An

Postby statisticalonion » Sun Feb 02, 2014 11:12 pm

My guards are not being sent to solitary even though there are like 40 solitary cells. They just sit handcuffed and my To-Do list states that i have almost 100 people waiting for solitary and only 2 are in it. Furthermore, I hired a lot of guards but instead of wandering around, they just sit in the delivery area and do nothing. Help!

I got almost the same problem. But i got like 3 prisoners that just got handcuffed and awaiting solitary. And in the "jobs" section it says "Escort prisoner to solitary - Job (Queued) ".

I have tried to:
- Hire new guards
- remove the walls on the room around the prisoner that is awaiting solitary
- Sack guards (In case it was a problem related to a bug with a guard)
- Made new solitary cells

Seems to be a bug after Alpha 17 arrived.

Okey, so i found the solution for my problem.
Since i like to play it "realistic", i tend to choose the "DoorModeLockedShut" in the solitary on prisoners who repeatedly commit misconduct in prison, so they serve their whole sentence in solitary if they don't behave. So at the time of the last time a couple of prisoners attacked my staff, i was rebuilding the solitary wing (I don't know if this has anyting to do with it). But it seems like even though you got plenty of solitary cells available, they don't randomly pick a solitary cell, but it can choose a cell where it allready is a prisoner inside, who in theory has served their solitary sentence, and is waiting to get transfered back to their cell.

So in my case, it's not really a bug. But there should be some kind of system in the future that allow you to isolate some prisoners that don't behave, so they serve their whole sentence in a solitary type room. (Just like in real life.)

Some prisoners get stuck whilst cuffed, so the guards won't escort them to solitary or their cell. simple solution is to select the prisoner manually and then set a new destination nearby. A guard will then come and pick him up, move him the few meters and release. Soon after that, another guard comes along and escorts the prisoner to where he needs to be.

From time to time you will get a handcuffed stuck prisoner that is still flagged as dangerous, which can clog up passageways for your staff. To make things worse, the guards have all but forgotten about him, so won't do anything to him at all - even if you manually order them to. Only solution then is to save game and reload. This resets the prisoners status from dangerous to whatever handcuffed is, and the guards will escort him to where-ever.

This is still happening to me. But in my case, prisoners aren't stuck. They just stand in the middle of path with handcuffs on them ...
