Cell Grading

Gameplay

Description:

All cells are graded on quality/luxury, on a scale 0-10

Other Information:

  • None provided


Example of cell grading based on objects the cells are equipped with.

Objects that increase the cell quality are still visible on Cell Quality overview.

All cells and dormitories are graded on quality/luxury, on a scale 0 - 10 (shown in Logistics -> Room Quality).

The following objects each increase the grading by one point (max. one point per object type, for rooms with multiple inmates, multiple objects might be required):

  • Outside facing Windows (one per 8 prisoners)
  • Office Desk (cells only)
  • Pool Table (dormitories only, one per 4 prisoners)
  • Chair (one per 4 prisoners)
  • TV (one per 4 prisoners)
  • Radio (one per 4 prisoners) (cells only starting Version 2.01)
  • Phone Booth (dormitories only, one per 4 prisoners) (used in dorms instead of radios starting Version 2.01)
  • Bookshelf (one per 4 prisoners)
  • Shower Head (one per 4 prisoners)

Besides, the room's size affects the grading. Cells of at least 6 squares get one point, cells with at least 9 squares two points, cells with 16 or more squares three points. For dormitories, it's 6, 12 and 18 squares per prisoner for one, two and three points respectively.

Prisoners are entitled to better quality cells (if they exist) as they build up time for 'good behaviour' (shown in their tooltip). One day good behaviour is worth one point of cell quality. As soon as they misbehave, they will lose their nicer cell and go back to quality 0.

Guards will automatically swap prisoner room assignments from time to time, to try to match everyone to the right cell. How strict this is handled can be adjusted in the Policy report.

New incoming prisoners are entitled to an 'Average' cell when they arrive.

Prisoner's chance to misbehave is affected by the quality of their cell as compared to average: Prisoners in a below-average cell are more likely to misbehave, prisoners staying in above-average cells are less likely to misbehave, because they want to keep their room. If all cells do have the same grading, it does not have an effect.

Family Cells, Holding Cells and Solitary Cells are not graded.
