I'm a new player, again

I jumped in in 2013 after seeing something about the game and finding a video of Delay and Morris on youtube. Worth a punt I thought, although some laundry stress is my last memory of the game; I think I was out before the game hit Steam. I thought I'd give the full game a go now it is finished... w...

Maybe you guys can help me. After testing my first upload to the steam workshop I decided the map was short on cash so I went to steam and tried to upload a new file; I had no luck. Searching seems to say that you just uplosd again and that will update your files. But if I try that with PA it says t...

My Papillon

I published my first prison. If you would like a look it's here http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=150756978&searchtext=

It's currently intentionally unfinished in case others want to finish it off for themselves. I'll put my effort up when I've done it.

Cheers.

Someone should be using that Ironing board; they should take the washing out of the machine and start ironing. There's an issue if you don't see that; god knows what that may be though. After lots of tries I think only one laundry will work. I'm still down under 50 for prisoner numbers, and so can't...

If the games goes down the SimCity route (Sim F'ingZilla) there will need to be a way to switch all this stuff off. I also think that in sandbox the whole point is to achieve a balance, or quiescence if you will, that indicates you have been successful. I'm still trying to win the overnight challenge.

I get what you mean. There is certainly some feedback affecting boiling point as pointed out; what the factors may be though...who can say. I did note in the save file there seems to be only one gang so perhaps this gives a clue to future discontent propagation. It will be interesting to see where i...

After seeing the Turtle on Steam I was tempted to make a Papillon (butterfly). This thread puts me in mind of Devil's Island. Perhaps an island map, with boats instead of trucks, might be a nice idea for IV as one of the final additions.

Re: Prisoner intake calculation

Hi, I'm confused. I thought the game was only supposed to send as many new prisoners as there were cells available (up to the maximum for the chosen map size)? I have 48 cells and 41 prisoners at the moment. I would like to go up to 48 prisoners but no more for the time being. However, if I enable ...

That has nothing to do with the subject, and smells quite spammy. And, why on earth is there a second wiki for PA? That just confuses and misleads people looking for the real wiki. hmm, I didn't realise it was a second wiki, I had just searched YouTube for 'prison architect save file format.' Sorry...

I recall that in the Alpha 10 write up it is mentioned that someone put a 'complete prison' in a 12x12 square. I took that to mean at least the first grant was achieved in that square.

This may be the case already; certainly for cleaning cupboards and laundries you get to assign more jobs the bigger they are. I'm not sure about kitchens as I've never let my con's anywhere near the sharp and shiny things.

What you can do is edit the save file: give one of your con's a female head (from the visitors so save at the right time to get one in the file) and change the name too. I did that as soon as I saw an ironing board in the game :wink: Edit: It doesn't matter when you save as all the family are in eac...

Didn't have the issue you described but I did use the 'avatar' edit (see here: http://prison-architect.wikia.com/wiki/Savefile_Format ) and became a prisoner - you control the guy with the arrow keys - and that prisoner became a walking water pump! The pump was able to simply walk upto the prison do...
