Prison Architect Update 2

Postby Chris » Fri Dec 18, 2015 12:48 pm

Prison Architect Update 2 has been released. Steam users will be automatically updated. Non-steam users can download the latest version from the builds page here:
http://www.prison-architect.com/builds.html

You need an active forum account to access the builds from our website. If you haven’t already done so, please register your game here to gain access to the builds, the private forums, the bug database and the wiki.
http://www.prison-architect.com/register

Here is our video demonstrating the new features:



Women's Prisons
You can now choose the gender of your prisoners in the "New Prison" screen.
Female prisoners have different needs and behave differently than male prisoners.

- Children : Some female prisoners are mothers of young babies (less than two years old)
and are entitled to look after their baby during their stay in your prison.
This requires some new facilities - often called "MBUs (Mother and Baby Units)"

- Family Cell : A new type of cell for mothers with babies only.
Similar to a normal cell, but also requires a Cot and an integrated Shower.
Nb these cells will never be assigned to female prisoners without babies.

- Nursery : A shared room for all mothers to live in, typically isolated from the rest of the prison.
Mothers will spend much of their time in this room with their babies.
Requires cots and play mats for the babies.

- Mothers will eat their meals in this room, so it also requires a serving table, benches etc.
Your kitchens will be assigned to cook meals for the nurseries as if they were canteens.


Modding API (continued)
- Added world and world cell data variables to the scripting API.
This includes getting the size of the world, time index, etc.
Setting these variables, however, is currently unsupported.

- A new interface scripting API has been included as well.
Mods can now add, remove, and change buttons in the BiographyWindow (shown when you select a non-prisoner object in the world), with callbacks to it's script.

- Modding in escape mode has also been improved by allowing player interaction on scripted objects.
A callback to the script is given when the player is close to an object and interacts with it.


- General performance enhancements, especially to laundry system.

New Translations
Danish, Dutch, Hungarian, Thai


Bug Fixes
- Needs.txt not loaded in correct order when using mods
- 0010162: [Gameplay] Surrendering in escape mode causes insane amounts of rep points / surrendering doesn't work
- 0010309: [Control & User Interface] [Prison Architect] Crash when opening confidential informant window

Pretty cool but it would have been nice to see some more bugs sorted out. My bunk bed prisons are descending into anarchy because of no clean uniforms.

All my prisoners now look like school busses, Staff are arm chairs, in fact most of my objects now are all wrong what happened? I have shower heads which are physcologists. All sorts of werid stuff

My guards all have upside down prisoners in there hands.

Here is a video of my prison i loaded it up right after the update... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2aN6ViM ... e=youtu.be

EDIT: Now running 0 mods and done a fresh install but it's still the same. All the menu icons are random objects too. All the files look fine, everything was fine last night i can't be the only one! lol

Love the update, but can you please let us mark our 'name in game' prisoners gender? As a woman, I sorta would like the option to have that actually represented in game.

Anyway, keep up the good work!

Nice update, good work IV!

Especially glad to hear this, since it's the main reason I haven't been playing at all for quite some time now, maybe I'll pick the game up again, will try my low-FPS prisons soon to see how much better they perform.

Just a shout to Ryan if he's reading this, you absolutely HAVE to reopen the face in the game tier, we need 100 female faces in the game as well! :D

Could you please publish the worldcell mod on Steam workshop? It's not there right now, unless I'm totally blind....

Cheers. Absolutely love the game!!

Is there age progression for the babies at all? I know most lowsec prisoners won't be in prison long enough to matter.

Update 2 isn't up on GOG for anyone yet. MAC or otherwise.

Really feeling great about the choice to repurchase the game on GOG, guys. I don't want to risk messing up my save by swapping between GOG and "Alpha Build" page versions...
