[Suggestion]Prisoner Character Creator

Postby kingslayer53 » Thu Sep 18, 2014 8:45 pm

First off, I understand that the "name in the game" tier is already doing this to help support the game and devs, but I think a game where you have individual characters with bios would make a character creator a necessity. I understand that people have already paid extra money to have their name in the game, but that's for every version of PA. It'd be nice to be able to create some prisoners for your personal prison only. I realize this kind of takes away from the exclusivity and significance of the "name in the game" feature. And some people might feel cheated if a prisoner creator was added to the full release. But dang it, it would be so awesome to be able to customize every prisoner in your prison. This suggestion kind of lies in the middle between the con of taking away from the significance of the "name in the game" and the pro of adding customization and uniqueness to an already awesome game. Just a suggestion.

Also, I'm almost certain something as obvious as this has crossed the minds of the devs or has already been suggested in the forum. I didn't see it when I searched, but it might be there somewhere. So I'm saying maybe someone on the dev team has already addressed this and either ruled it out, or made plans for it in the future. Either way I wanted to put it out here. Thanks.

the name in the game list is just a plain text file, so yeah.

Hi kingslayer53,

A "Prisoner Character Creator" already exists for those who paid for the Name in Game tier.

Log-in using your forum credentials here: http://www.introversion.co.uk/prisonarchitect/register/

Once in, there should be a button on the bottom of the page called "Name in Game Editor" which should take you to your prisoner editor page. On the right side of the page is where you can customize how your prisoner will look in the game. Then you must wait for it to get approved, and updated in the next Alpha release.

Keep in mind, extra customizations - like new faces - would not be fair to those who paid for the Face in Game tier, which is also known as Digital-Immorto-Criminalise Your Face and is currently sold out.

Cheers!

No, it is not. It's just a TXT file.
