Bug/Feature: Currently no need for cells...
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=170448399

Huge Holding Cell with Beds, TV and Phones and shower equals 100% happy prisoners around the clock...

The biggest issue at the moment, is the Laundry-rooms. They do not work independently. Even though I have 3 separate laundry rooms with 15 "workers" each, they all wait around for a single cart to be pushed all the way out (from ONE of the 3 laundry rooms) before everyone (from all laundry rooms) walks over to the cart and each move a piece of clothing to a bed. Then they all walk back to the laundry room after which the empty cart is pushed back. As the prison reaches ~100 inmates, they start getting annoyed with having to wear dirty clothes because of the laundry-issue.


Also, the solitary cells do not seem to work if there are no "Cells". (Unless Solitary Cells are broken in Alpha 12.)

Ohh... I'm so sorry that I happened to miss a broken URL to a page showing an open block of non-walled-in "Cells", as opposed to what I noted - i.e a single "Holding-cell". Really! Thank you for making me aware that someone else did something completely different before me... I don't know what I would have done without this knowledge.

Link isn't broken, you should check again. People make mistakes. Holding cell "bug"/" feature" isn't new. Thanks for pointing out that you're a youngin and can't contain your emotions, everyone isn't out to get you.

That a good idea. Saves money. :)

Except when they re-enable the Clothing Need to incite riots, this won't work. Beds in Holding Cells don't get clothing deliveries - only beds in normal cells do.

Actually, Beds in Holding Cells do get clean clothing. :)
The only issue I've had with this design is that the laundry isn't coping with 100+ prisoners and building more laundry rooms does not help, as they seem to count as one laundry room.

Your screenshot would strongly disagree that holding cell beds get uniforms.

My small prison holds 144 cells and laundry works just fine. One laundry works fine. No need for a second, even if multiple laundries worked.

Here's a screen for ya... :)

I did start the laundry room a bit late and it is a bit far away so they're constantly on the back foot. N.B, this is 138 beds on a small map, though since not all prisoners sleep at all times the Holding Cell can keep a lot more than 138 prisoners happy. :)
