Basic Questions (Prison Fortress)
« on: September 13, 2010, 03:25:01 pm »

I want to create a prison fortress and i have a couple of questions.

1. How do i drop food into a room cell without the dwarfs "Prisoners" leaving?

2. Should i create a well in every cell or a channeled hole for water and cover it up with a grate?

3. What would be the best way to move all of the prisoners into their cells. I think i could make a burrow for each cell. If a prisoner gets hurt, i would like to send them to the hospital, but then how would they go and leave from the hospital?

Why not have them be actual prisoners?

Mod in a bunch of extra nobles that do nothing but sit around and make insane mandates. Have them be appointed nobles but immune to punishment. These guys do the work in your fortress as well as tend the prisoners, with the occasional beating thrown in for good measure.

Then build lots and lots and lots of prison cells. Completely ignore all mandates. Everyone who isn't immune to punishment will then be in a prison cell. Forever!  :D

you could have the cells two z layers tall with a channelled top with sets of halls on both floors. the bottom layer has door access. dump the food in from above

Are the fortresses there for psychological reasons?  Are they trying to hold back entropy itself, rather than the goblin hordes?

Modding in wardens or guards who make huge lists of mandates that are never fullfilled, and thus all non-exempt dwarves end up chained in prison cells for the rest of their life, with the occasional beating from a warden/guard sounds more fun.

Migrants are merely another shipment of prisoners the Mountainhome has sent to you. They'll be escorted to their cells in short order, because one of the wardens will want slade socks made, and doesn't care that is it impossible.

Basically...
I also am not sure how to mod a "Prison Idea" into the game.
