Your Prison Layouts

#1 Posted by Lord_Xp (602 posts) -

Alright ladies and gents. I have been playing this game more and more. I'm slowly getting better at it as I go along. I would, however, like to see how others in this community of constructed their prisons and what their ideas are behind it's layout. For me, I haven't gotten a fully functioning prison yet that I'm satisfied with showing you guys yet. But I will show you when I get a good one up and running. But I do have some goals for myself once I do get better at this. One goal of mine is to try and recreate Shawshank Prison. If you don't know what I'm talking about, then look up "Shawshank Redemption" Another goal is to purposely build a tiny weakness in a prison where an inmate can escape. But I want it to be very hard to find. Yes, I do want a prisoner to escape, because why the hell not.

I will show you guys what I have created eventually. But for now, I'd like to see what others have created!

That's a cool idea actually. I'll try and do that too.

It's not done yet (yes, I gave myself $1,000,000)

To my disapointment there are no gas chambers...

This is my first working prison (all others ended gloriously). I purposely went small and tried to avoid it being too symmetrical. I need to work on a more elegant way to arrange the prison blocks so they are away from the staff locations. Keeping the prisoners out of the kitchen and having metal detectors in the hallways to the showers (shower first thing in the morning on the regime) really cut down on the random stabbings.

Running the pipes and electrical along the paths and through halls and doorways works well. I ran out of power so I had to start another power grid and having the power cables arranged this way made it easy to add a new generator as you cannot have 2 generators on the same grid. Planning to go with 2 generators on my next prison right off the bat, one just for the cell blocks and one for the rest of the buildings (adding more if needed).

Planning on creating a "Super Max" this weekend if time permits.

I dunno man. Those trees look like they will inspire hope in your prisoners.

I think that's a pretty rad layout though!
