Starting to look nice! Any idea about what kind of model they are going to paint?

Some little hint: room icons go in the ui.png and need to be defined in interface.spritebank
This will be a problem with other mods if they touch that file, since only one can be active at a time.

Thanks man, I made a small Statue of Liberty that they will paint, the sort of thing you see in tourist shops in New York.

Thanks for the tip with the room icons, I have tried but with no success currently so will be leaving them default for the time being.

I will be updating the mod today with new sprites and more features.

I've also added the recycling room to the ui.png in V1.03 of the recycling mod, so you could just copy/paste that interface.spritebank and ui.png if you want. I noticed things get messy when the easy money laundry mod is enabled as well - then your modeltable will be shown only half. That guy should update it's sprite file because it's taking way too much unused space.

edit: I condensed that sprites file from the money laundry mod and your tables now show up correctly. However the staff still ain't. So I had a look into the barbermod and manufactury - now if you talk about wasting precious sprite space, well those are good examples :? If those authors would take some time to make it as compact as possible there would be MUCH more space for other mods available to use...

I've tried to load these mods all at the same time (all covered in ui.png):
Name BarberMod
Author oskr13
Name Manufactury
Author Decamatus
Name "Money Laundering Mod Easy Mode"
Author hoosdatGuy
Name "Recycling"
Author Murgh
Name "Sauna Mod"

Hmm I noticed some small bugs in your sprites: you should use RotateType 4 instead of 1 for the models, tables and stacksprites etcetera. Place a table vertical in one of your workshops to understand why. And you specified CarParts for input at the stripped car processor in production.txt, but that should be called EngineParts instead according to your materials.txt. It's a good habit to check the file debug.txt which is at \AppData\Local\Introversion\Prison Architect after editing a mod for testing.

edit: To come back on the corrupted sprites issue, I'm running two customized mods containing 43 mods split in two 1024x1024 sprites.png files and the Greater Reform Mod was about the last one that could barely fit into it. I had to split the new staff into the first sprites file and the rest into the second sprites file. Then I referred to the staff sprites from the first mod in the second mods materials.txt by using negative coordinates. I have only a few places with 16x32 spare pixels left, too small to fit anything useful in there. But everything is working without any problems in 1 prison. Too bad the current system can't handle loading all those 43 mods at the same time due to lot's of wasted space by the mod authors... :(

The list of mods currently active in my prison (I may have missed one or two which I merged on the fly here and there in the code) is completely insane:
