Letztes aktuelles Video: Update 5
- We focussed on performance this month, and achieved a speed boost of at least 50%. This work is ongoing.
- Now defaulting to the VS2015 build, with the old VS2008 build still available for Safe mode (Prison Architect Safe Mode.exe). This gives a good speed improvement over the VS2008 version.
- Asynchronous job search system. Instead of synchronously looking for a job, workers, guards, prisoners, doctors now place a request for a new job in a queue. This queue is processed during render phase of the game loop so shouldn't take up any time during the main game loop.
- Speed up rendering of the Feed Prisoners Objective. This was particularly slow when their were a lot of hungry prisoners.
- Rebuild the indoor/outdoor shadow mask only when a cell changes its material or indoor/outdoor status.
- New pipe type in the utilities view: Hot water pipes These operate on a seperate layer to the existing pipes, and can be overlaid without conflict.
- New utility: Hot water boiler. Requires a large pipe connection of cold water, and a direct electrical connection. You can run hot water pipes from this boiler in any direction. Nb. Water will lose heat the further it gets from the boiler.
- All radiators now require a hot water connection to function
- Showers can take cold water or hot water. When supplied with hot water, showers will also reduce a prisoner's Warmth need. When supplied only with cold water will apply a Frigid effect, which acts as a kind of short-term surpression while also spiking their Warmth and comfort needs.
3d mode has been discovered
- This update we have improved 3d mode with new shapes, new shaders operating on all objects, and better wall geometry.
- 3d mode remains very experimental.
- Known bug: The mouse position is wrong when using graphics/Supersampling
- Known bug: Long pauses caused by geometry changing, eg wall construction/demolition
- Thermodynamic map to use 16 bit number type to represent the temperature instead of 8 bit. This fixes a bug with fire showing negative temperatures.
