I gathered. I suppose the joke would've made more sense if I followed it up with a quizzical guard arriving to ... open... the door?

Explaining the joke kills the joke. :'(

I'd have thought so too, but apparently these forums are populated by conspicuous numbers of ESL folks. Some 12 posts in and I've learned that *nothing* can be implied or taken for granted.

How easy is this to reproduce? Some detailed instructions and starting map to investigate this further would really help.

I see this in my main hallway most often after some renovations.

1) Make a 5x7 foundation
2) Place a door dead center at (3,4) and make walls around the door across the 3 wide hall.
3) Remove walls around door, leave door.
4) Watch as people continue to path into the door instead of routing around.

Seems to just be a general quirk of the pathing code.

Yea when i clone cells and they install the doors first, nothing else around they will wait at the doors to go into the open space to further the build. So i just cancel doors and Put them in last now.

apologies, I haven't checked the forums for a while, been really busy with work... as for reproduction, these are the steps I took (I haven't attempted to reproduce it yet).

1) built a fence between 2 buildings
2) placed a small jail door in the middle of it
3) decided that I wanted to expand that way so I removed the fence (but forgot to remove the door for some reason, probably marijuana related)
4) noticed the situation when I was watching my workers do their thing.
5) had a good giggle
6) posted it to the forum.
