Re: People who commit crimes are not 100% illiterate >:(

At least the ones having the literacy need should be able to work in the library. They should either be able to do so from the beginning or they should only get the need once they finished the foundation education course. The first way would probably be the better one, for the reasons you already ga...

Re: What am I doing wrong?

No, it's 40 (or 39), so the distance shown is short enough, so it's correct to avoid large pipes, as they are helping prisoners with tunneling (and are more expensive). Holy.Death's answer probably is the one needed here: You have to place a pipe on the same tile as the sink. (It doesn't even have t...

Re: Prison Warden Balancing - Change Ideas

Short answer: The disadvantages of each warden are simply that he doesn't have the advantages of the others. If you think using any of these advantages makes it too easy for you, use the one without any advantages.

Re: Power won't come back on

Ah yes, I missed that (shame on me, it's mentioned in the post which correctly is in the Escape Mode forum), sorry. However, in escape mode the computer does pretty much do nothing actively to keep the prison running. Walls that are destroyed by fire are not rebuilt, guards that are killed are not h...

Re: Power won't come back on

You have to manually switch it on after it failed. Click the power station, then select "Switch On" in the entity option. Did you do so?

Re: Mobile Version of the game

While I also think that a written statement about the expected release data for the tablet versions would be greatc (and so would have been an announcement beforehand), but they actually never said that the tablet version would come at the same time as the PC version. Actually, in the Verwion 1 rele...

Re: How to disable music

Prison Architect uses a musical soundtrack only sparsely, e.g. in the cutscenes of the campaign and during riots or executions. I guess this is the reason why there actually is no option to disable it separately from the sound effects (which are a important part of the gameplay and thus should not b...

There is no password.


Yes, there is one for collectibles.dat. There's probably none for the artbook PDF.

Re: [SUGGESTION] Lighters need a nerf

It also should be much harder to start a fire. For some, if not most objects it should not be possible to set them on fire using only a lighter. I mean, did you ever try to burn a metal object like a prison toilet or a showerhead with a lighter? Or something massive like a door, a solid table, etc.?...

Re: More Objects?

As the developers tend to not tell the public what they are planning to do, probably nobody can answer you the "are there any plans" question. However, adding additional objects is a thing that can be done by mods easily. So if you want a mod that adds some purely decorative objects, you j...

Re: Download on devwiki

The wiki has not been used to distribute builds since Alpha 4. You are probably looking for this page: http://www.introversion.co.uk/prisonarc ... uilds.html

(I have to try a standalone installation myself, since my Stream version has been fucked up with version 1.0)

Re: Prison Architect Name in the Game

They launched a new website now under http://www.introversion.co.uk/prisonarchitect

Most of the packages available for purchase previously have not been moved there, but the "Name in the Game" one is still offered (next to the Base Pack and the Aficionado one).

Re: Question on V1.0 release date

According to Wikipedia, National Night Out is "held the first Tuesday of August" and only "Texas and Florida have the option to use the alternate date of the first Tuesday in October to avoid hot weather". And according to some PD and news websites I quickly googled, only Texas u...
