How do I play Alcatraz? The prison say shows as open but it is greyed out and I can’t click on it.
I need a water usage map, to show me what area gets how much water, I can’t seem to figure out what else to upgrade, all my water pumps are up graded.
In the Alcatraz prison half my prisoners never get to eat. I have everything updated. They run to the dining hall and about half of them get in, then the queue gets too long (I’m assuming) so the rest of them just leave and they don’t come back. Anyone else have this issue?
Yes. The fully upgraded dining hall only seems to allow 20 prisoners in line. This needs to be fixed in an update.
Anyone knows what the vault in event prision is for?
If you get a master key that’s where it goes
My prison seems to be off schedule and this is what is causing riots in my fully upgraded prison how do i get them back on schedule?
I got the key in my first chest i bought.
I got the key after 12 chests
What is the likelihood of getting the master key from an even chest?
So if the same event comes back around, is my progress loaded from the last time that event was offered?
No. It will start from scratch.

So what do you do when you have upgraded everything and hired all employees and riots still break out?
No idea I have same problem.
It seems to me that the riots break out when I visit a prison I haven’t visited in a while. I noticed that by watching their activities for a day cycle, they usually, but not always, calm down.
