Workshop Money Cheat...

Postby boonstick » Mon Feb 04, 2013 9:53 pm

Im probably very late to this (I've tried searching but cant find anything on it) but I've discovered a little cheat... Well bug really.

Start a new large prison without continuous intake. Sack all the workmen as soon as they arrive. Then cover the entire map with workshop tiles. Stick it on fastest time and just sit back and watch the money pour in.

You'll generate £65K per day. I'm pretty sure if you left if going for a while you'd built up quite a stash!

Money wise the game is pretty broken. You have to be pretty bad to not have enough cash - thats why a lot of people use the Global Financial Crisis Mod.

I must be pretty bad then. I find it extremely hard to manage my money. Maybe I'm doing something wrong...

Either way, I'll post this bug in mantis because it needs fixing.

It's not a bug, it is an Alpha feature :)

I use it to build prisons fast. I designate the edges of the map as Workshop. Five tiles deep on the other side of the road, and 7 tiles deep on the other three sides. Nets about 8k per day/night cycle. Plenty to get one going on a nice prison.

I guess everyone who has built at least one prison knows about the workshops already, sorry :P

Also, if you just want lots of money without worrying about running out of funds, you could just edit your savegame, much quicker than waiting for workshop payment several times.

To be honest I'd rather not cheat. I came across it by accident when looking thought the wiki about the workshop.

Something about the collected knowledge of this forum and discoveries based on reading it, perchance?

I never said I was using this cheat/bug to build my prison, it was just something that I came across.

I know about this, it helped me start up my prison properly. I somehow forgot about Grants
