This article contains a list of the current mods in Prison Architect. For the development of mods, see Modding. For the development of scenario mods, see Lua.

A mod is content for the game that is community written. As of Alpha 16, the Steam Workshop can now be used to share mods.

Since Alpha 15, Prison Architect has built-in mod support. With this new functionality it is now possible to enable, disable, and rearrange the sequence of the mods that you want to load. For mods created during Alpha 14 and earlier, see Mods (Obsolete).

Since the release of Alpha 24 the modding system was overhauled to make it a lot easier for developers to create new content. Whereas previously it was only possible to add new Grants, it has since been made possible to edit, create and generate a swathe of new roles, objects, rooms, and much more to truly change the game. (See the full list here)

Getting started

Steam Workshop mods

If the mod is part of the Steam Workshop, you need to go to the workshop page of the mod and subscribe. Then, when you go into the game, you will need to activate it through the mods tab in the main menu.

It's worth noting that as of Alpha 24, any new Grants will be loaded in the order of installed mods. All grants are loaded into the game additively (so none will be overwritten), but only the first instance of any grant will be loaded if there's more than one with the same name. Any subsequent grants with the same name will be ignored.

External mods

For any mods outside of the Steam Workshop, all you need to do to install a new mod is download the mod and extract it into the mods directory located in %localappdata%\Introversion\Prison Architect\. After unpacking, you need to restart the game, and the mod will appear in the Mods menu option under Extra. There you can enable or disable the mod, or change the order in which they are loaded.
