Suggestion: Prisoner Journals

Just thinking of another way of improving prisoner experience and couldn't find this in any search. How about a program to encourage prisoners to write a journal? Could be done pretty cheaply, because all each inmate needs is a pencil and paper. Would hopefully improve their mood by allowing them to...

Re: Prison architect - MULTIPLAYER!

Let's flesh out both of those multiplayer scenarios then. Playing as a guard You're assigned to an area by (presumably) another player. You can obey that rule and tie yourself to a small area or you can ignore it and do what you like. You choose to follow your patrol route and open doors for prisone...

Re: Common Room "Not Working"

As long as there's no warning triangle in the room it's working properly. Have you placed your Common Room in the middle of your Yard by any chance? Prisoners only use the Common Room during Free Time, not Yard Time, so even if it's in an accessible area they won't touch it. Odds are the quick phone...

Re: Prison architect - MULTIPLAYER!

And on top of that - what multiplayer features would you want anyway? Creating with friends? So all of your prisoners escape when one of you makes the group run out of cash while building a wall? It could be funny for a couple of hours (and YouTube bait) but that's it. Multiple prison neighbourhoods...

Re: [Suggestion] Cancel Grants

I've wanted this for a while as well, so it gets a +1 from me.

I think something like a 15-20% charge on top of the refund seems like it'd be enough to stop you using it as a loan, without making it so harsh that it screws you over if you genuinely wanted to complete it but can't.

Re: Small issue regarding cancellation of foundations

Good news! This bug (which was really highly rated on Mantis) has already been squished so should be updated in the next alpha build.

Re: Critique on Introversion

It's not very often I agree with xander ( :D ) but he's right about this. Nobody has ever promised a guaranteed return on the money you've handed over. You have already been given the product, liability begins and ends there - and in the case of kickstarters and early access games, even that isn't a...

Re: Can someone in the community help me?

Seriously? No one is willing to help me? It's not that people aren't willing , it's that they can't . You've been given the only options available. Steam is an internet service. The alpha game is a download available through that service. I'd like my car to run without consuming fuel, but sadly suc...

Re: buggiest game ever ?

Because I'm bored I'm going to be helpful, despite everything being addressed elsewhere. I'm nice like that. i pause the game and still the buses keep coming with prisoners. Prisoners tab (in Reports), change any green "open" buttons to red "closed" setting. Unless you mean the g...

Re: Cannot construct a cell

Couple of things that I can see so far. The bed isn't installed yet, so it'll keep failing until that gets placed in there. The actual defined "cell" area is only 2x4 in a 3x4 room (at least that's how it looks in the second screen - the first one is fine other than the doorway). That'll c...

Re: Regime suggestion

While I like the idea, I don't think it would be a very realistic thing to do. The reason you have a regime in a prison is not to keep the inmates happy, but so that you know where they are. If they don't want to eat they don't have to, but they need to be in the canteen so you can do headcounts and...

Re: Ideas for Alpha 18

I'm not really sure what multiplayer would really add. Sure, you can "compete" to have the most valuable prison or the highest number of inmates or whatever, but that's just high score table stuff which doesn't need realtime netcode. And it would be cool, but I don't really think it adds m...

Re: Graphics errors for mac

In before "check Mantis" posts :) The only time I've seen any graphical errors on my 2012 MBP is when switching between fullscreen and windowed, but that's solved when the game restarts. I've seen some people talking about problems on Intel HD3000 cards though (mine is a 4000). Might be wo...

Re: Gladiator fights

I guess you're thinking about the "hell-hole oppressive regime" style of prison, where it might work. Although I'd have the fight winners get fed rather than electrocuted, otherwise there's no incentive :) While I think the idea could be funny, it seems kind of unlikely based on the settin...

Re: [Suggestion] More flexible shower and eat regime

To be honest I think what would help all of this stuff more is properly assigned "wings" and maybe 15 or 30-minute regime periods. If you could send A-Wing to breakfast while B-Wing showers, then swap them over half an hour later, you keep everyone away from each other and stop them just k...
