I think there's a bug with cutting trees for sawing in the workshop. If you plant them one by one and then "dismantle" / harvest everything is ok but if plant them by selecting a tree and dragging it over the place (in a row or similar for space efficiency) it most often gives the wood of one tree when harvesting. Long story short: you plant many trees and you harvest like it was one planted. Anybody want to confirm this?

The Name In The Game upgrade is amazing! You get the PA art book, PA soundtrack, Defcon (w/soundtrack), Darwinia (w/soundtrack), Multiwinia, and Uplink (w/soundtrack). Not only do you get direct downloads, you get a steam code!

All i'm seeing in the link is the choice to upgrade for $10. Looked in game too and no options to customize look, just transfer prisoner.

Any help for those of us who previously purchased 'Name in the Game' and would like to customize prisoner?


Watch the video. You customize your prisoner in a web browser.

Great Update. Thanks for this awesome game. This Alpha is growing so fast and stable and that with such a nice little studio, its unbelievable. Many other developers can use your work as an example how to do it right. Have a nice day and a happy new year :)

Just as a side note about purchasing

Maybe a Humble Store widget would be better? The sendowl "50 download limit" is kinda junky compared to the normal "download whenever you want" kind of thing more stores have. Not that I'll be downloading much anyway, but it just seems like such an arcane 'limitation' from the vendor you're using. You could, possibly, integrate all that into the Humble Store UI instead? not sure but it's just a thought.

In any case $10 upgrade complete! Now just typing up the bio of my Top Secret RPG character.

Could I get some help?

I've bought the uprade and done what the guide in the PA_Nameingame_Upgrade.pdf tells me, but when I try to register my name on http://www.introversion.co.uk/prisonarchitect/register/ it keeps telling me I only own the standard version of the game, which is true, but I didn't get an actual upgrade key or anything, just a bunch of their older games and soundtrack keys.

I'm no doubt missing something super obvious, but I can't figure it out right now.

If you ordered through paypay, use the PAYPAL email. Not your forum email. For some reason that's how mine went through since my forum email is diffrent than my Paypal email

Ok for Steam users he's what you likely need to do

1) Log into the registration page using your Introversion forum credential
2) Purchase the $10 upgrade
3) Purchase via Paypal
4) Go back to the registration page
5) Click the "Register you Name"
6) In the blank field where you would put in the serial, put in your PAYPAL EMAIL (for me this was really confusing because my forum email is different than my paypal email)
7) voila you now have the name your prisoner UI

Where can we report this issue? Is this thread appropriate place? The bug looks pretty easy to fix from the outside.

I'm having this problem as well. In A15c, all prisoners would eat. Now, even with a 2-hour meal time, many remain in their cells and the Needs->Food bar has a long red bar. There is also no blue bar indicating food is being satisfied.

This occurs on a prison I began in A15c.

**Update**

Thx for reply
went to http://www.introversion.co.uk/prisonarchitect/register/


Went there, but the actual Name in the Game feature seems broken. All I'm getting is red lettering over the menu and no bodily customization

I said it before, I'll say it again: One of the things I look forward to most in a new PA alpha is the release video. Those are always a blast!

But I have a suggestion for those in future updates: When Johnny or Ryan or Alistair or any other of Introversions freelance guys make significant changes to the game, why not have them join Mark and Chris in the presentation of those features? I think it would be great to have them talk a bit about their own work in those release videos :)
