you can become a prisoner button
this should be put in the game because you sould not have to kill 60 prisoners to become a prisoner in your own prison.It can be when you reach a certian day in game.Then when you deside you dont what to be a prisoner you can push is again.

I agree ...
or maybe you can choose a certain timeframe upon pressing the button (say 1 or several days to 1 week).

One could call it an incognito test of your own prison conditions. Not unlike the movie "Brubaker"

Great idea!

Wow, I forgot all about Brubaker. I saw it in the theater when it came out; excellent movie.

I'm so glad that people saw Brubaker, a great Robert Redford movie! But, yeah, I'd like to enter my prison too.

That being said, isn't one of the losing conditions where you get arrested for misconduct and placed in your prison as a prisoner? I'm of the assumption that you cannot control your guy or it ends at that point?

ya and you should be able to eat as a prisoner shower,steal stuff,and get in to fights

I agree, we should be able to play as a random prisoner or something without having to kill a large quantity of our prisoners. Especially if they are trying to keep the executions and whatnot out of the game.

I don't really get the appeal of 'playing' as a prisoner. What can you actually *do*?

If I were a prisoner, I'd do everything that "architect" me is trying to prevent, like escaping and starting fights. It'd be fun to do in it's own right, but it's also a means test for your prison design.

Or allow you to carry out tasks when you become a prisoner from failure conditions

I'd rather they focussed on making the game about designing a prison, and let the guys making that prison escape game focus on making a game about escaping prison, personally.

Thought the clue was in the name 'Prison Architect', not 'Prison Inmate'!

Indeed. It would sure be a nice idea for an addon / spin-off game once PA is finished, or even a feature for Subversion if they ever get to have another go at that one... hey I can still dream, can I ?

But for now there's already The Escapists to scratch that itch.

I posted a simple mod on how to edit your save to do this but it fell of the forums... Il try posting it later if I can find the time.

Edit: ok here is how
Open the save file you want to be a prison in (.prison one)
press ctrl+f for search and type in "conditions"
go two down
find the line just underneath:
BEGIN TooManyDeaths END
and add the following within it
BEGIN TooManyDeaths Value 5 State Warning END
next time you load you will be a prisoner

change line BEGIN TooManyDeaths END
to BEGIN TooManyDeaths Value 5 State Warning END

you start in prison, also you can dump and dismantle, haha, mass escape
