Laundry Architect: Work-Around for Laundry Bug
Posted: Tue Jun 18, 2013 12:39 am
Hi everyone, Alzeric here. If like me you have been experiencing the Laundry bug and it's been preventing you from enjoying building and ruling your prison with kid gloves or an iron fist, comes Laundry Architect!
So your Prison is littered with dirty undies and uniforms! (see below)
and have a backed up Work Queue (see below)
and of course your lazy prisons are procrastinating and standing around with their thumbs up their bums (see below)
Well fret and toil no longer, Laundry Architect to the rescue! Now this isn't some magic cure, however it 'SHOULD' make things a little easier on you, by removing all that dirty laundry and bugged work queue jobs, your prisons should start delivering fresh, crisp, clean laundry to your prison population once again.
Laundry Architect is fairly self explainitory and has easy to read/understand instructions.
How does this work?
Thanks to the extremely easy to read/access/understand save files provided by prison architect and how the entire game is kept in a line-by-line text file, Laundry Architect reads through your save game file and removes all instances of the dirty laundry causing the issues and riots.
Is it safe and free from virus and other little nasties?
From virus's and nefarious coding, Yes of course, and I've even provided the source code for proof and more as a learning tool for those budding programmers out there.
Will it ruin my prison?
All I can say is it hasn't hurt any of the prison save files I've ran through it, without further testing I have no idea. Technically it should be fairly safe. Post your experiences with it in this thread, if you love it, or if you are having issues with it.
What OS (Operating System) was this tested on?
I coded/tested this on:
Windows 7 Home Premium
Service Pack 1
.Net Framework 4 Client Profile [HERE]
I have not tested it on any other OS as I don't have access to any others. It is a windows .exe file so if those of you on other OS's can test this it that would be great. If this is received well I may write a cross-platform version for all our friends on linux and macs.
Current Version: v1.01
