The recruited guards now come to the prison without any rank and have to work hard to be promoted to officer and specialist officer. However, your dedication will pay off as each increase in rank offers additional perks.

The planning menu is renewed with many new options for fences and walls. Also, when “drawing” walls and using build options, a new cursor-based tooltip is displayed, showing the horizontal and vertical dimensions of the room and the projected cost for the selection currently being drawn.
