Alpha 34

Some prisoners will now have gang allegiances upon entering your prison. This can make those prisoners much harder to deal with, as they will work to defend each other during trouble.

This is an optional feature, enabled by ticking the new "Gangs" tickbox in the New Map screen. (Nb. You can also hack gangs into an existing prison by adding 'EnabledGangs true' to the top of the .prison file.)

More dangerous / higher security prisoners are more likely to be gang members.

  • Gang members can be identified visually by their full body tattoos
  • Gang members will always come to the aid of their fellow gang member when fights break out.
This includes coming to the aid of a fellow gang member involved in a fight with guards.
  • Gang members more likely to try to steal weapons, and more likely to carry them rather than stash them
  • Gang members will not participate in any voluntary reform programs
  • Gang members will not work for the prison
  • New view : Intelligence => Gangs. Highlights all known gang members and shows the total number of members of each gang.
Nb. This is part 1 of a larger feature.

New room: Shop[edit]

  • Requires shelves and a shop front. The shop front should go on a wall such that prisoners can access the shop front from a corridor.
  • Shop goods will be brought into the prison in the usual way, and taken to the shop.
  • Prisoners can work in the shop, and will unpack the boxes of goods onto the shelves.
  • Prisoners can buy items from the shop to help with their needs:
  • Soap, shampoo etc. for Hygiene
  • Towels, blankets etc. for Comfort
  • Magazines for entertainment
  • Snacks for Hunger
  • All prisoners are now paid a fixed wage of 50 cents per hour when working for the prison
  • Items in the shop cost $5 each
  • Prisoner wages and shop takings are now shown in the daily cashflow report (updated at midnight)
  • Prisoners are more inclined to participate in voluntary training programs, and will concentrate harder, when there is a shop on site. (They want to earn that wage to buy things for themselves).
  • The shop is a potential source of smuggled contraband

Asian language support[edit]

The game now supports Asian character sets, paving the way for translations into

  • Japanese
  • Chinese
  • Korean
  • etc.
  • Mail room (continued)
  • Fixed: Mail satchels would be endlessly delivered in certain circumstances
  • You can now dump mail satchels if you end up with too many
  • Escape tunnels (continued):
  • Each member of a dig team now brings diminishing returns to the overall speed of digging.
This represents the fact that (say) 10 prisoners just couldn't dig all at once in one square.
Previously 4 prisoners would dig four times faster than just 1 prisoner.
It will now take 4 prisoners to dig twice as fast as just 1 prisoner.
It will take 11 prisoners to dig three times as fast as just 1 prisoner.
  • Searching a toilet manually will now reveal any escape tunnels.
Nb this requires you specifically search the toilet itself, and does not apply if the toilet is searched as part of a "search cell" or "search cell block" order
  • Conventional fences no longer slow diggers down
  • The research screen now flashes a warning if you are attempting to research an item, but are missing the necessary Administrator, or he does not have an office
  • Emergency services personnel no longer need to rest in a staff room
  • More prisoner faces added to the sprite bank, for greater variety
