If there is someone who likes to help people and knows this game, you can add me, so I can ask you few questions when I start playing. It's better that way than coming here asking all those short questions.

Cheers.

You could always do a search on the forums (this one and the official one). Pretty much every question that you could ask has already been answered.

if you want you can add me, i've been playing alot lately and have figured out a pretty fair amount. i'm online a couple times a day usually so if im not currently online just leave me a list of questions if you like and i'll help as best I can
K, thanks.
I just wanna say that I like the game so far. I usually hate learning the game mechanics, but here is just not boring. More info about what building or objects do would be appreciated.
BTW: How do I make prisoner go to infirmary? I tried clicking on him, then right clicking on infirmary or bed, doesn't work.

PS: Continuous income seem that doesn't work for me. I didn't tick it, I wanted to learn the game first, but the prisoners keep coming every day.

Guards should take the prisoners if they been injured automatically

Just click on the tab under the clock then click the tab i think for prisoners, then it should show a list of prisoners in 3 categories. Just click the open button to "closed" and that should stop the flow of inmates.
K, thanks, will try that. Btw, it was easy for me to see which prisoner needs medical care, but now it says that one of them need solitary compartment. How can I know which one? There's probably a shorter way to find out or there is an icon that I don't recognize.

when you created your prison you had the option to choose if you want to take in prisoners every day or the ability to choose when.
I know and I decided to choose when I want them for my first prison, but they keep delivering them every day.

make a 1x2 cell with just a toilet and put a jail door on it, then use the room button to make it a solitary cell. Now guards will put the bad guys there.

click the tab that says prisoners, same as the tab for the grants. Its the page thing at the bottom right. Hit the closed button if anything says open

I was asking how to know WHICH prisoner to take to solitary cell, but reading this, I think that they will got there automatically. Thanks.
SO, I've build a fence around my prison and put that large 1000$ gate so people can enter. What should I put instead of that to stop my prisoners escaping? They just run to the gate, it opens and they just run away. If I lock the gate, people and materials will be locked outside.

And, one kitchen is not working at all, the cook just walks around, doing nothing.

Post a screengrab of both your kitchen and your gate area.

Prisoners generally don't hang around a gate and walk through it when it opens. They'll try to smash it down and escape that way though.

Personally I have two large prison gates as the main access to my prison, and station a guard permanently in the 'antechamber' between them to let people in and out.
Thwy don't hang around the gate and escape when it opens, they just run (on free time possibly) and open the gate themselves. I will post a screenshot later today when I'm in the game.

don't allow prisoners at the very last exit. make sure there's a long way to run between where they're kept enclosed and where they disappear forever. Guards without Body Armor easily outrun any Prisoner.

Prisoners can't usually open large gates or prison/cell doors by themselves without keys. From what you say you obviously haven't placed any prison gates (that prisoners cannot open) between them and your road gate.
