Jail was rarely a problem loading before as there wasn't often more than 100-200 inmates.

Why not switch it back to one page, as the change(and the lag) has definitely increased the # in jail = unhappy TC'ers?

Agree 100% that the hospital needed broken down, as it often took ages to load with 500+ at any given time.

Another great "fix" for the TC community. I've been in jail for 3 hours now...have 4 more to go and I can't use nerve to escape till it gets down to 200 minutes.

Everyone talks about how this game is so slow, to progress takes years....yes YEARS, and now this "fix" is put in place to make it even slower.

Can't wait till the magic Oct 28th for all the great "upgrades".

I hate it. Don't care about the hosp, but I like being able to scroll through all the people in jail, too see people or faction tags I know.

I don't care if it loads faster if it takes loading 6 pages to see if anyone I know is in.

it's not useful for jail, maybe hospital, but jail not, we lose a lot more time browsing those pages then loading them

A simple alternative to the multiple pages would be to create pages according to how long the jail time is e.g. 4 hours+, 2-4 hours, 1-2 hours, 0-1 hours.

There are better solutions than this, but the above should be quick and easy to implement.

One thing which seems to me might be true, is that the pages are generated every time one is requested, which could cause immense load if the number of requests is high. Would server load be less if the page was just generated every, say, 5-10 seconds and then just cached?

ok so every one hates it...

check out this suggestion thread: it provides a much better alternatives and solves all the problems relating to server load and helps people find who they want to bust:

hi...

I am getting pretty desperate to get a staff response to this thread...

It has been weeks since i posted first and now you guys have re-done the jail pages without even reading my suggestion.. It makes me feel pretty crappy about the site development and gives me the feeling that the developers are not listening to us PAYING customers

Please take a look at this, pass it on to other staff and let me know your thoughts by posting in my thread...

It would be appreciated

Thanks,

STAFF PLEASE READ AND COMMENT...

It's not better...the lag still exist and the chance of being busted out it's almost 0 if you are not in the first page.I am in jail for hours now. I don't know about the rest of TC players but i really hate this change...

of all the things that could have done with a freshen up, the jail was not near the top of my list. the load times were never that bad, especially compared with the hospital, but I only ever checked that to see how long I was stuck in there for after a crime mess up.

Now, as many people have said here, the jail situation for busters, and captives, sucks.

Good to see changes being made, and I suspect in time we will all get used to this, as we do with everything else in TC and RL, but perhaps there is scope for more beta testing or 'focus groups' to be shown these new codings in future, before they are unleashed to all players and causing the level of dismay seen here.

I have said before that some people will always moan at whatever is enforced upon them. Noobs joining TC after this update will never know any different and will not understand the 'jail was so much better before the update' moans.

Change is hard to take for most people, but we can embrace it if we can see a good reason for the change. So, in summary (sorry boring now...), I am happy with this change on the hospital pages as they are not often viewed, but imposing the same restriction on the jail, which is a fundamental part of many players' game, is not a good move.

And I like many others, will not be so keen to bust or do high jail risk crimes, as i do not want to rot there for hours.

Well, it is a good improvement I think. It did take me ages to scroll down to the lower parts of the jail area, I don't see why that won't make a difference.

And for people who tend to be stuck in there for ages: most of us don't have the dex to bust you lot out, so sorry.

Still think the old version was better, easier to see, but the new page system is alot cleaner ; they both have there advantages and disadvanteges.
