Can't you just move the machine alone to avoid ejecting everyone ?I think there's a known bug with the Fracture Ward specifically, hopefully they'll get it fixed. I've had massive queues for the plaster machine but nurses ignore it. The patient at the front gets mad but can't leave, leading to a massive backlog that you can only clear by editing the room which forcefully ejects everyone.
Possibly, I'll have to try that next time.Can't you just move the machine alone to avoid ejecting everyone ?
I had a patient that couldn't enter a bed because of a locker, I moved the bed then he chose another free bed and everyone else in the room stayed.
You have to hold the mouse click to move a sigle item without editing the room.
Probably easier to Close and Open the room in the room menu.I think there's a known bug with the Fracture Ward specifically, hopefully they'll get it fixed.

Here is a list of what is in this patch;
- Copy and paste rooms
- Fix corrupt saves due to light headedness patients in a certain state
- Fix corrupt saves due to broken guest trainers that were already in a vehicle
- Fix corrupt saves due to characters interacting with broken items
- Make some parts of game friendlier to anti-virus (fixes some random hard crashes)
- Fix graphical issues on OSX 10.10 (Yosemite)
- Fix various instances of room building getting broken
- Fix various instances of characters getting stuck
- Improved queuing situation with various bug fixes and balance tweaks (We are still working on this!)
- Cafe is a bit more sensible in terms of desirability compared to vending machines (if you have a cafe in an already built hospital you will need to edit it and rebuild for the change to take effect)
- Fix queue positions in selection UI not updating
- Fix staff getting tired, hungry etc before being placed in the hospital
- Fix finance not working after loading last save after going bankrupt
- Fix ghosts broken after loading save
A couple of tips. Firstly, at the beginning don't do anything unless the health minister tells you to do it. You can have a pretty terrible hospital but as long as you quickly and consistently meet his targets your reputation will still increase. Secondly, a challenge he can give you is to get a room to level 4. These pay out really well, so once you complete it, delete the object that just tips is over that point. That way you'll keep getting that same challenge and all you have to do is add a single object. Eventually you'll build up huge amounts of money and can afford to make a good hospital.
Another good sounding tip I've seen on the net is build a research room early and get them researching moneyA couple of tips.

It works for me. Increasing prices and doing some marketing campaigns is a great way to increase your hospital value. You can also do a campaign for a specific room, for example if you have several rooms for premature mummification with a high cure rate, you can draw more people with this disease to your hospital.
I've finished this level with 3 stars last night. I've lost many fully upgraded machines because my janitors refused to put out the fire for some reason, even while the room was filled with fire extinguishers. So yeah, it was my least favorite level for now.
Select Edit from the room menu and click the floor of the room. You can now move and rotate the entire room like if it was one big object.
The major issue for me that was fixed is people getting stuck in Wards and Fracture Wards.
I am on the same boat. I love the game, but i stopped after the first 5 Hospitals. The Pathing AI was getting me frustrated.
Be sure to spread your GP offices throughout the hospital, don't put them together in a single building. You can also use the "patients" screen to skip a GP visit if their diagnosis percentage is high enough.
I'm at 82 hours with 11/15 levels done, and still loving every second. They're continuing to fix bugs and add new features, so if you want to save some dosh then definitely wait until the Autumn sale since they may add more QoL fixes. Also, apparently there'll be a big announcement by the Two Point Hospital team at Twitchcon on October 26-28. There's some speculation that they may announce a console port, but I'm personally hoping for DLC and a sandbox mode.
If you are hurting for cash, sure, you can wait around for a sale to drop the price. But as someone who bought it at release, I can tell you it is 100% worth the money, plus the team has actually done a good job patching out the issue and introducing new features, with more stuff to come soon.
I'm about 4 levels away from the end, though I have been trying to 3-star every hospital. The gameplay loop can be repetitive near the end, but I do like that the game keeps throwing new challenges at you. In many ways, I can feel that most of the game is just a giant tutorial to get you ready for the final level, and I think it's brilliant in that way. Some games just throw everything at you at once and it can get overwhelming, but TPH has been great at getting you accustomed to new things. And as you said, that feeling of finally getting a solvent, successful hospital after breaking through queue issues is just amazing.The last hospital in particular was an absolute blast. It was the first time I felt I really needed to leverage all of the resources at my disposal to get to three stars. It was an emotional rollercoaster; I almost gave up several times but every time I walked away, I couldn't stop obsessing over what might need to happen to stabilize my all-important profits (deep realizations such as "oh yeah, marketing"). And when I finally had the queues stamped out and was raking in $200K a month, what a feeling. I felt like a god. If you get stuck on DOB or Sweaty Palms, you MUST find a way through to the last couple of levels, because they're the best the game has to offer.
Good news, Sandbox mode was just added in the latest beta!If there was a sandbox mode, I would still be playing. I will be keeping a close eye on any future development, as I would love to make a return trip down the road. It's one of those games I could see myself replaying for fun either way, but new stuff would be cool. Hats off to Two Point. The love that went into this game is bursting from the seams. I can't wait to see what they do next.
We need it just to get bloaty head, slack tongue, etc back.I have to say, the post launch support for 2PH has been top notch. Most (if not all) of the community requested stuff has been added by now and they do not appear to be slowing down. Personally, I would love to see mod/workshop support added in the future which would be just amazing
Instant buy, thanks for the heads up! I'm so excited to get back into this. I was born to build cartoon hospitalsExpansion just went up. Haven't played it yet downloading now, looks to add a bunch of stuff.
Our final update of the year is available now! In this update (v.1.10) we have added the Bigfoot DLC illnesses to Sandbox if you own the DLC and fixed various bugs.
Added the Bigfoot DLC illnesses and cure rooms to Sandbox mode for people who own the DLC

Various crash fixes and bug fixes
Speculative fixes for some load failure
Let us know in the comments below or in the steam discussion forum (https://steamcommunity.com/app/535930/discussions/0/2806204040006424820/ ) if you have any issues or questions about the update, and we will get back to you.
We have lots of exciting things planned for Two Point Hospital in the new year and we will share what we are up to with you as soon as we can. Thank you so much for all of the support this year, it's been amazing!
Haven't been able to play in a while, and haven't even touched the Bigfoot DLC yet, but Workshop support is pretty damn awesome. I'm totally gonna use wallpapers from Theme Hospital, lol. I think the only request I have left is blueprints, because as great as the Copy Room feature is, it's still a bit of a pain when you have to add a million Gold Certificates each time you start a new level.
Hmm, I wonder what that's all about?Lastly, there’s word in Two Point County that an eccentric millionaire has set his sights on immortality in an attempt to circumvent, well... mortality. Could this be the death of healthcare as we know it? Quite possibly, but I don’t know, really (so don’t ask). Stay tuned.
