I read this article a few weeks ago on achievements: http://www.gamasutra.com/blogs/GregMcClanahan/20091202/3709/Achievement_Design_101.php The summary (for me) is that achievements should be fun, and not a grind to complete. So parts that you cannot control well (such as healing a guard back from <...

Topic: Is there anyway to mod number of prisoner uniforms?
Replies: 11
Views: 338

There's a discussion in one of the other threads I think, about exactly how many extra uniforms are required. I have about 1.5 uniforms per inmate in my prison and it seems to be working quite nicely. As you say, I suspect it depends somewhat on your prison size, layout, how many prisoners are worki...

I did this by editing my save game file. On Windows, go to "%APPDATA%\..\Introversion\Prison Architect\saves" and open your .prison file. Then search for a stack of uniforms identified by the string "Contents PrisonerUniform" and bump up the contents number. e.g. BEGIN "[i 5...

I think this might just be a limitation of the game at present. As you say, cooks should deliver food to prisoners who are locked up. Since they don't, anyone locked up for a significant period of time quickly get angry due to a high food need meaning they smash something / someone as soon as they g...

I think longer term there is going to be a campaign system. You kinda see this with the tutorial level showing a short story and teaching you how to build the electric chair, so I assume there will be further levels with different challenges to overcome. No idea how long this would be, but I'm assum...

Good call, that was exactly the problem I was having. Thanks! :)

I've seen this too. No idea what the problem is, and my other prisons seem fine.

I guess whatever they can buy in prisons currently? Some items I can imagine being added to the game: Cigarettes (do they allow this in prisons?) Chocolate / sweets Toiletries like toothpaste, shaving utilities?, nicer soap, etc... Softer toilet paper! Books Playing cards I guess ultimately purchase...

This thread reminds me of a recent article I read about the new Sim City game. http://www.pcgamer.com/2013/02/01/why-games-need-color-blind-modes-see-simcity-with-simulated-color-blindness/ In short, the Sim City guys added some filters so that they could see what the game looked like to colorblind ...

I like the idea, but my immediate thought on reading this thread was the opposite (and probably along the same lines as christopher1006). That is -- rather than Batman cleaning up your prisoners, I actually thought he would keep dropping off super-violent prisoners at your prison over time (such as ...

Maybe the research time could be reduced. Or some things could be rearranged so you get all your basic staff quicker but lets say, lawyers, CCTV & riot police cost a lot more & take longer? not sure tbh.. Yes, I agree with this! I think the more basic things like the clone tool and janitors...

Yes, it's a known bug (number 67 in the mantis bug tracker). From what I've seen it doesn't seem to affect anything else, and the icon your prisoner turns into when sleeping seems fairly random.
I have several shape-shifting inmates at my prison who reveal their true form when they sleep! :p

Do you have any anti virus software by any chance? Perhaps it thinks a program crash is an indication of a possible virus and is deleting it "to be safe"... :-S

My own thoughts on this is that the fully-featured clone tool should actually just be available at the start of the game. I'd much rather be researching new room types or more furniture rather than additional levels of a (IMO) somewhat boring tool. Currently the most I've used it is for making cells...
