- Prisoner log and improved scheduler
With the new prisoner log, players always have an overview of what is happening in their prison. They monitor the activities of their inmates, uncover misconduct at an early stage and keep track of who is being released, who is improving or who is relapsing. The game scheduler has also been improved and new options and settings have been added.
- Save and reuse
Every time they create a new prison, policy, or quick part, players can save it in their settings. This saves them time setting up their prison the next time they want to start over.
- Aging means caring
From now on, the inmates will be divided into young, elderly and old people. After spending a long time in their prison, they will change both visually and functionally. You will also develop other needs.
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.
- Improved building and planning tools
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.
