Re: Multiple floors question!

Both. They decided not to do it because they didn't want to overcomplicate the UI and the gameplay AND because they'd have to massively rewrite the pathfinding algorithm (which is already the biggest bottleneck of the game).

Re: Fix Offline Play

That's an issue with steam, not with the game.

Play the Non-Steam version, you can get it from here: http://www.introversion.co.uk/prisonarc ... uilds.html

It works perfectly fine when playing offline.

Re: FPS Optimization

Your graphics card (while good) has no impact whatsoever on fps in Prison Architect, as it's a sprite based game. The major bottleneck in this game is raw CPU power, number of GHz you CPU has. Also, the more prisoners and staff you have, the more it will tax your CPU and slow down the game.

Re: Trouble with prison after update

Working fine for me, adding new wings or segregating the prison should be perfectly possible. Post some screenshots of your prison please so we can investigate.

Re: There are no prisoners assigned to eat at this canteen (Staff Room!)

No, save files can be loaded in any version of the game, they are even compatible across the non-steam version on the developers site and the steam version. Only the console and mobile versions, which have been developed by other companies are an exception to that.

Re: There are no prisoners assigned to eat at this canteen (Staff Room!)

Or you could opt into the latest beta version of Update 13, the bug is fixed there and you no longer need that mod.

Re: yard time

No. You can't give DR prisoners anything but their appeal hearing. Otherwise, they stay in their cells at all times; they even get their meals served there.

Re: Were can I find Subversion?

Sadly, they never released a demo. And they ceased development on Subversion once they started the Prison Architect project.

I still foster a tiny sliver of hope that they might rethink their plans for Subversion and start working on it again at some point in the future, but it's not very likely.

Re: Cannot install on Android device

Common complaint. You need a tablet, it won't work on phones. Pretty stupid imo, my phone could easily handle it as well, but IV won't allow it because of reasons :x

Re: Can we create more names?

You can edit it to your heart's content on the same page where you created it. But if you want another name in the game, you'll have to buy it again.

Re: Will the lag ever be dealt with?

the fact that the game only uses one core Incorrect since November 2013, when Alpha version 15 came out. Since then, the game does use multiple cores. However, multithreading (splitting the execution of a program across multiple threads so that multiple cores actually help) is horribly complicated....

Re: how do i get my name in game???

The get your name in the game purchase option was done a long time ago. What rubbish. Don't listen to this guy. :| The DLC is still being sold and you can still add your name the same way you always could, which you can easily find out by browsing this forum. The only thing that has changed is that...

Re: next uppdate?

The game no longer gets any updates, the devs have moved on to their next project. The new names in the game are added without game updates, there is a button in the game which lets you download the latest names in the game list instead.

Re: No Hot Water pipes, boiler, radiator in latest patch???

All hot water features have been made optional a couple of patches ago. You can activate them like this: Esc->Extras->Map Settings->Enable Weather.

Be aware though, once activated, you cannot deactivate them again on the current prison.
