Workmen Bug

I don't know if this is a problem for others, but when my workmen have nothing to do, they sometimes coagulate around the edge of the map. Can we get it fixed? The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk • contribs) 21:37, January 19, 2015‎ (UTC)

"Shooting" Link Removed

I removed the "Shooting" link because that is more of a "common sense" game mechanic. The Armed Guards shoot their gun when in fear or when in Weapons Free mode. The Prisoners will shoot when they are rioting, and have dangerous traits. These things can be easily mentioned in their own articles. I don't think enough unique information exists to merit "Shooting" as its own article.

Bugs and articles

At the moment we have a loose list of bugs in several articles. But i think they are very incomplete. So we should start to get the wiki up to date.

I've added the {{Buggy}} template, it should help identify articles that contain bugs, so we can quick delete fixed bugs after a new release. I would suggest to move the fixed bug to the history topic of an article for historical reference.

We should mark all bugs with the corresponding Mantis pages. I've created the {{Mantis|Mantis-Id}} template for that. It needs the Mantis Bug Id as only parameter and will create a link.

Last but not least the next task we should accomplish: go through the Mantis Buglist and transfer the bugs to the corresponding wiki articles with mantis link and bug box.

Quick Suggestions

Could we get a page up for the wiki that might topics that are incomplete or need to be created?

One of the things I've noticed that isn't on the wiki right now is a list of controls for people to access in case they don't have a mouse or want to play on their keyboards. --Zeshio (talk) 04:18, 10 November 2012 (UTC)

Category:Stub is for incomplete pages, Special:WantedPages shows pages wich are linked, but not created. Unfortunatly the page shows mostly german pages at the moment. If you think there is a topic missing, feel free to add, but first check if there is a page about that.

Adding 'focus polls' to the News section?

Should polls (by Mark regarding the next focus - e.g. [1]) be included on the News section of the Main Page?

Added it - discuss here if it doesn't look right/need to be there -- samtarling (talk) 16:11, 24 March 2013 (UTC)
I think it's good right now. But in the future when new polls come we should only show the latest one and all of them like the different builds.

What do you do to research staff?

I am having a hard time researching staff becouse I have no idea what key opens up the research menu. Can anybody help me? The preceding unsigned comment was added by Adam8351 (talk • contribs) 20:25, 7 April 2013‎ (UTC)

Are you referring to researching new 'personnel' such as the Psychologist and the Cleaner? If so, the menu button is Bureaucracy. Seventh across from the left and the icon is an organisation tree.

Updating Prison Architect

Alpha 8 - Steam

Issues: My dad deleted the Alpha 8 update email and now I can't get it on steam :( I tried emailing the support team 3 days ago but no reply... Anyone know what I can do? The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk • contribs) 06:03, 11 April 2013‎ (UTC)

You can get the steam code using any of the update emails - they all link to the same file repository which will have your steam code. In the future, please ask questions in the forum as you'll get a quicker reply. samtarling (talk) 12:30, 11 April 2013 (UTC)

How to add another language?

I've tried to transulate to korean. like the german did

but I don't know how The preceding unsigned comment was added by Ahn (talk • contribs) 10:42, 12 August 2013‎ (UTC)

For some reason the translate was removed. Basically the mainpage needs to be coded with these tags(<languages /> and <translate></translate>), and then a translation admin needs to mark it for translation - then a "translate" link will appear on the top. --Aequalitas (talk) 05:03, 30 September 2013 (UTC)


Instead of little X's in your starter prison settings, you should use a button that says yes/no depending on click. This will clear up any issues, as i have accidentally enable "Fog of War" countless times doing this. It's a pain.

Trucks delivering garbage?????????????

Im working on this prison and whenever i build something these trucks full of garbage show up. So my staff instead of doing as they were told 1.Unload full bags of garbage off trucks. 2. Put garbage bags in delivery. 3. pick up garbage bag and move it to the trash room. Then 4. they move the trash from garbage to a truck and it goes away then another truck full of garbage shows up and it repeats. Is anyone having same problem or is this something true to the game

Please post in the forums and report this bug for support. -Zybeon (talk) 17:08, 26 September 2014 (UTC)

Wiki Feature

Hi. Is it possible to add a feature for switching different languages like in wikipedia? So you don't have to add links of all possible languages to all pages. This would be getting to complicated and confusing. --TiRARdisk 09:03, 9 February 2015 (UTC)

Any admin in here? --TiRARdisk 07:55, 10 February 2015 (UTC)

there is no power.

I am having trouble with this, my generators won't turn on and whenever I try to turn them of they just instantly turn back off even with all the capacitors on. How do i fix this? The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk • contribs) 25. Mai 2015, 00:05:52 (UTC)

Maybe you need more than one generator. Or you have a short circuit with two or more generators. I recommend posting this in the forum. --TiRARdisk 09:00, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

New Punishment

Hello! I have a little sugestion about prisoners with whom we have problems. Can you add a new punishment that we can send them to Death Row? Of course not all prisoners can be send there. Here I give you informations how I see this thing:

Research by Lawyer for ex. 50.000$

Only for prisoners witch sentence above 100 years or who killing a lot of persons in prison.

Prisoner will be taken to Parole Room by guard.

Requriments: Cell for Death Row.

Made by lawyer in parole room.

The bigger the judgment the less likelihood of clemency when he will be send to Death Row.

I thing that will be a good thing to solve problem with troubling prisoners in our prison. That will be great if you add this :D Regards.
