Prison Architect Alpha 22

Faster, sleeker and less frustrating: All 5 programmers coded their way through 18 days of bug stomping effort and managed to kill 73 major bugs and resolve over 1600 duplicate issues. Ladies and gentlemen, we present to you: A less buggy version of Alpha 21.


  • New construction material : "Clear Indoor Area". This removes any walls and floor materials and returns them to concrete floor. It only works indoors, and does not remove the external walls of the building.  It also removes any objects in the area.
  • Added more informative failure messages to the Reform screen, for when scheduling fails. These are common failures that were wrongly reported as "NO ROOMS FOUND", leading to many bug reports
    • ALL ROOMS STAFF ONLY : The room must be available to the prisoners, Staff Only therefore doesn't count
    • NO REGIME TIMESLOT : There must be a slot in the regime of X hours of Work time, sufficient to fit the full session in
    • NO TEACHERS : You don't have any of the required teacher type
  • Guards no longer hang out in the Holding Cell when they have nothing to do
  • You can now clear a regime for Max or Min sec prisoners and return to the default Normal sec regime, with a new X button in the regime window

Narcotics continuedEdit

  • The Methadone program is no longer 'graded' in the same way as the other academic/practical programs. Success chance is now based simply on attendance. Concentration and Understanding no longer play a part
  • Doubled the penalty to 'Health' grading for drug and alcohol addictions (now -4 points per addiction)
  • Doubled the effect on re-offending chance of drug and alcohol addictions
  • The Methadone program has been renamed to 'Pharmacological Treatment of Drug Addiction'
  • The Alcoholics Anonymous program has been renamed to 'Alcoholics Group Therapy'
