The Mail Room allows your prisoners to receive mail from the outside world (i.e. the prisoners' families). Sacks of unsorted mail will arrive at deliveries daily at 8am and are subsequently moved to the mail room.
The mail is sorted by prisoners at the sorting desk and then placed into a mail satchel. Delivery of the mail is made by either a guard or a prisoner. Reading mail satisfies a prisoner's Family, Recreation and Comfort needs.
Maximum number of jobs for the room is 20 at a size of 240m² (12 tiles per worker).
- Minimum Size: 5 x 5
- Sorting Desk
- Excess amounts of mail satchels are delivered to your prison, and existing mail satchels aren't used. There is a planned fix for this in Alpha 34
- A possible solution is to use the dismantle object tool in the objects menu (bulldozer icon) or sell object.
- If dismantle or sell is not working, another possible solution is to find and replace all "MailSatchel" with "Garbage" in your save game file.
- Using a regular door (not staff, not jail) seems to affect the efficiency of the mail room, using any other type of door seems to cause it to bug out more frequently.
