Prisoners not having needs met properly

Jason Jul 23, 2017 08:28AM BST

Has anyone else had issues with prisoners and their needs? I have most stuff necessary for them, not everything, but a lot of needs are not being met, or are taking forever to do so.

For example, my prisoners will not sleep. I have plenty of beds, both normal and bunk, but no one sleeps, and the need just increases. The animation for sleeping doesn't play either. The prisoners just aimlessly wander around the cell.

I created a test world with one prisoner and a few cells with different bed options and qualities and the like, and it seemed to happen no matter the cell type or bed type.

I have properly set the regime, I had mods, but disabled them and did a fresh reinstall of the game from steam, and have even downloaded other maps from the steam workshop that supposedly worked properly, but to no avail.

Sleep is just one issue. Hygiene takes a long time to finish. I dedicate an hour for shower times normally, and every prisoner takes advantage of it and the need drops to zero. But now, I have to have 4 hours for shower, and even that doesn't drop the need to zero, subtracting prisoners in solitary. There's a few other needs like this, but you should get the gist of it.

The issues only started yesterday, and I've seen no complaints from anyone else on the internet, so I'm curious if there is a solution. It is most likely something on my end, but I have no idea what it may be, especially after the fresh install.

Apologies for the long post, but I figured it was best to give all the information I had in one go. Thank you for your time reading this, and the solutions, hopefully.
