Can you change settings in the code?

Postby Darkowl57 » Wed Jul 04, 2018 8:53 pm

A couple days ago I built a prison that I'm kind of proud of. It's big, it's got plenty of reform program rooms, and the prisoners are happy.... (Until the mayor called and took away my visitation rooms. Then the prisoners got royally pissed.) Anyways, I realized something halfway through building. I selected the wrong warden and prisoner gender. I don't want to have to spend 3 days rebuilding the prison, so I was wondering if there was any way to change that kind of stuff in the games save file code. Help?

The save file is just text. Open it in notepad or whatever. Absolutely make a backup of it before editing. There should be a line like
BEGIN Wardens Warden 3 END
I'm not certain, but I think changing that 3 will change the warden. I also don't know what to change it to. Experiment!
As for changing the gender, if you started a women's prison there's a line like
WomensPrison true
Removing that should change all prisoners to men. To change men to women, add it before the BEGIN Cells line.
Note that your existing prisoners will still look the same.
