[Mod] The PA Winter Theme Pack (Alpha 28)

Postby RGeezy911 » Sat Nov 29, 2014 10:55 pm

Intro & Download___________________

The Prison Architect Winter Theme Pack is a visual modification to the game that gives it a cold winter theme. Many tiles, objects, and staff members have been edited to reflect the season of winter. Additionally, some new materials and objects have been added in, and some sound edits have been made.

If you would like to use this mod, please subscribe to it on the Steam Workshop.

Remember to favourite, like the mod, and leave me some feedback!

Note: This pack contains very little reference to the Christmas holiday; I only wanted this mod to reference the season as much as possible, not the holiday.

Note 2: When you first activate this mod, you must restart the game before you can hear the custom sounds.


Major Changes______________________

Immediately noticeable is the addition of snow. A strong winter storm has passed by, and the entire area is covered in snow. Regardless, your job remains the same: construct a fully functioning prison and make profit along the way:

Image
> All outside tiles have been edited to show a heavy layering of snow / ice. No one feels like shoveling all that snow.


Image
> Trees and other outside objects have been edited to show snow. Some other objects have also been edited.


Image
> Most staff members and prisoners are now wearing scarves.


Image
> Vehicles are covered in plenty of snow, and no one feels like cleaning those either.


Image
> The Bureaucracy screen has been edited, because why not?


Additions___________________________

Four unused materials that are found in the game's files are now available to use in this mod:

Image
> The Wood Linoleum Tiles, Brown Square Tiles, Blue Square Tiles, and the Pebble Stone. All tiles cost $10 per square, and have normal movement speed. However, the Pebble Stone can only be placed outdoors, and the other three can only be placed indoors.


Two new objects are also available from this mod:

Image
> The Snowman and Christmas Tree. These objects are decorative and don't do anything. The Snowman can only be placed outside.


Incompatibiliy_______________________

This mod changes many things within the game, mostly visual. Below is a complete list of files this mod changes. If you use any other mod that edits the files listed below, this mod may cause incompatibility problems:

I personally won't be using the mod because I'm trying to get away from winter as much as possible :P

But it really does look awesome. Kudos on a job well done.

My staff is now happy to get a warm from the creepy cold weathers, hehe.

Would love seeing prisoners and staff playing snow war...

The mod looks great! The bird sounds seem a bit quite though. Also would recommend removing the song.

If you're asking about these:

No I don't have a problem with it. Everything else, however, I would like you to ask me first.

This is a really awesome mod. If I had to nitpick anything (sorry!), the scarves seem a little weird to me. They just don't fit the cartoony look to me, I guess.

Really, though, love this mod. A nice way to change things up.

Great Mod and I plan on using it when ever it snows (I live in Chicago so I'll have this mod loaded for months).

Can you add the ability to toggle the music? I kinda dislike it, it doesn't quite fit the feel of all the scenarios that occur while running my prison. :p

Thanks for the feedback! Only one other person has suggested me to silence the music. Since many people are using the mod, I don't want to interrupt it's current style. So what I can suggest you to do is to either remove the sound from the mod folder (which will set you back to the default), or you could edit it in a program like Audacity and crop the music out.

Unfortunately, there's no way for me to modify the game / mod in a way that will allow me to mute sounds and music separately.

Cheers!

The mod has been updated with Alpha 28. All missing icons should now be fixed.
