Cannot meet room requirements
I'm playing the new Prison Architect Alpha, but as soon as I'm out on my own, after the introduction, I cannot seem to meet ANY room requirements.
For example - A holding cell... The requirements are that the room must be 5 x 5 in size, contain a bench and a toilet. I have done this. I have done this in numerous configurations. With doors, without doors, toilet connected to water, toilet unconnected, lit, unlit, a room IN a room. I've even tried building a 15 x 30 size room with those items in it. When that didn't work, I tried putting one of pretty much EVERY item in it. And yet that little flashing red triangle remains...
What am I missing?
I will consider the image you posted on question comments As part of the question.
The problem is: you have to draw a 5x5 square to make the holding cell. You only drew 1x1.
I had this problem also, I thought the game would fill the room up to the walls if I mark a single square as a room. It was an expected behaviour that was not implemented.
You have to use the room tool and drag a square 5x5 to make the room. The objects can be placed before or after that.
