Last night while streaming on twitch it hit me we have the ability to build roads, but some of my community members said it is merely cosmetic & if I were to build a road truck drivers would simply ignore them & not deliver goods down the road.
For example, if I were to purchase the land west of my original plot, build a road leading there & designate a delivery area there the trucks would not go there to drop supplies off. If all of my supplies are delivered along the original road then a kitchen built a plot or two away from the original road has a hard time getting the supplies it needs in a timely manner or before the staff member becomes tired.
The larger we make our prison the longer it takes for staff & prisoners to move about; which is part of the challenge-- to a point.
My suggestion is for a new room to be added: The Garage.
The Garage: Requirements
- Lead Mechanic
Lift (for vehicles)
Addition of new Programs
- A Basic Garage Safety Class
A Mechanic Certification
Lead Mechanic: Requirements
- Researched in Bureaucracy
Golf Carts while not requiring a Garage to run or be purchased would need one to be maintained. Over time their speed could be reduced until they are put in the shop for repairs. They could be electric or petrol powered as either one would need a shop for maintenance. If they were made electrical, then the addition of charging stations where they need to be taken to be restored to full power could also be introduced much like tazers needing an hour to recharge.
Adding Golf Carts or other vehicles would allow the movement of supplies around the prison from the current road side delivery areas in a more timely manner.
Another addition could be the necessity of workers taking & passing a driving course before they could drive the Golf Carts around.
Love the game & it is so much more than the name implies which is one reason I added it to my stream.
