Guard Towers + Snipers
You can now build guard towers around your prison for an extra level of security, intimidation, and force.
- New entity type: Snipers
- Hired from the staff menu. These guys will equip themselves with a scoped Sniper Rifle from the armoury, if you have one. They will then take turns manning the guard towers you have built.
- Snipers will project 'Suppression' to all prisoners within their line of sight.
- Rules of engagement
- When snipers see trouble occuring, they will fire warning shots.
- If three warning shots are ignored, they will shoot to kill.
- If you have enabled "Freefire" they will always shoot to kill, without warning.
- They will also shoot to kill if they see an escaping prisoner already outside the prison secure zone.
Secure Visitation Booths
You can now build secure Visitation Booths in your visitation room if you choose, instead of the usual Visitor Tables. A secure visitation booth has a glass panel that separates the inmate from the family member, and they use a phone to talk.
- No contraband can be imported through a totally secure visitation room
- However the inmates family needs will not be satisfied nearly as well
- Nb. There must be a complete separation of visitors and inmates for a room to be considered secure.
If you are a Name in the Game customer, you can now update your bio and create a female prisoner if you wish. Go to http://www.prison-architect.com/register to do this.
